My girlfriend and went to Arizona and the Grand Canyon for our 65th birthday, thanks to the generosity of her husband. We toured the rim, walked down into Walnut Canyon, and also took a helicopter tour which included lunch in the canyon. The photo opportunities are endless. I cannot choose what was best to photograph; vegetation, geography, people, animals, etc.... More

My friends and I recently visited the Grand Canyon. First, we checked at Bright Angel Lodge for a room...you never know if there is an opening...got it at Thunderbird Lodge for the night!!! We didn't even ask the price..well worth it...our room was on a corner on the first floor, literally 20 steps from the rim. Checked out the sunset... More

You can never get tired of the amazing views. Whether it is sunny, cloudy or rainy the colours and shadows present themselves magically. Drive the entire park from one entrance and exit at the other end, you will be treated to breathtaking scenery around every corner. The Canyon Village offers shopping for groceries, snacks, tours and gift items, prices are... More

There are no words to adequately describe the Grand Canyon. After deciding to take my first ever solo vacation for two weeks, the Canyon was the high point. The penacle of two wonderful weeks where I took my first 7 day cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, a two and a half day stay over in South Florida, culminating with 4... More

I must be one of thousands who review the Grand Canyon every year, and I expect they say the same as me--Amazing! I was not prepared for the vastness and rugged beauty. Smoke from forest fires at Sedona brought a blue haze which impaired the view in the afternoon. Next morning the wind had changed and the word Grand did... More

The Canyon needs no review or introduction. No words can explain and describe the Canyon. It is one of its kind in the world and if you have an opportunity coming way to visit it , grab it with both hands. There is plenty to see around and if you have the time just sit and watch the Nature. It... More

I had only every seen just a small glance of the Grand Canyon, so our trip to the South Rim was quite an experience. We took the train from Williams to the Canyon. Once there there are free buses to take you to various spots. If you don't like hiking up hill, have the bus take you to the furthest... More

We had a great day at the canyon! So much to see and take in... We spent most of our day biking from the visitors center (bikes from Bright Angels) to Hermit's Rest and back (about 22 miles). It was an awesome experience. We enjoyed a lot of fresh canyon spring water throughout the day. To cool down, we walked... More

Flew over the Canyon a few years back, ok with that view until we visited the South Rim for 2 days in June 2014, truly magnificent, totally awe inspiring.
