A great was to see the canyon in a more rustic and less crowded venue. At the lodge, enjoy the Adirondack chairs at the lodge in the afternoon and sunset, and the Bright Angel point trail any time. Its going back in time and when the south rim is flooded with thousands if not tens of thousands... only a few... More

An incredible masterpiece of nature that must be seen in your life time. When you get here, the first thing that strikes you is that it feels like a back drop from Hollywood set. It is so amazing that it feels like it is not real. It really is as impressive as they tell you, it is one of those... More

A must for everyone. This is a place I had always wanted to see. And I wasn't disappointing. Picture can't do it justice and was better than I could imagine.

The Grand Canyon has been on my bucket list forever and it did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to be there for a couple of days and experienced both bright sunshine and a stunning thunder and lightning storm. We enjoyed driving from viewing point to viewing point and taking photos - we aren't really 'hikers' but I feel I... More

2015 has the most favorable temperatures for travel to the Grand Canyon. Late July, high seventies, enough clouds to obscure the sun from direct exposure yet perfect lighting for photos. The perfect blend and a lot of travelers have been taking advantage of this ! Kolb Studio is a great stop above the Bright Angel trailhead. Also the courtesy bus... More

We booked this excursion and accommodations at the Bright Angel Lodge (a cabin there) one year in advance through Xanterra because we were told it was a very popular place to stay/thing to do. Once we got to the Canyon, we could see that we made the right decision! Our mule ride was booked for 8:30 in the morning. We... More

I've visited both sides of the Grand Canyon and the South Rim is always stunning. Expect hoards of tourists and a few morons (I say this because I've seen people throwing coins and rocks off the ledge, which is just plain stupid as there is a lot of wildlife in the canyon and these people don't have a clue). There... More

Not much you can say about the Grand Canyon. One of the worlds most spectacular locations. Access to this location is very good with wide proper footpaths, viewing platforms and points of interest sign boards all with stunning views. A few interesting shops but the cafes can have long queues.

We all had a great experience in the canyon. We drove from the east rim and parked the car in the Visitor Center. Took the Express route bus to the edge of the Village and hopped on Red Route bus to visit most of the interesting points and lookouts.
