We came here on a tour and were not dissapointed we went to eagle rock and the Skywalk both of which were amazing. HOWEVER I wouldnt do this again to this tribes reservation after hearing how they have ripped of both the government and private investors to establish this rich endevour for themselves.

We were there when there was snow in the canyon in January. It was amazing to see a different side than you would in the summer. We saw lots of deer and elk. We had a great time!

This was our 5th visit to the Grand Canyon. It was magical in the winter especially with a fresh snow coating the trees atop and fog rolling up from the floor of the canyon. The canyon is indescribable- pictures don't do it justice. Take your time and enjoy the various studios and features that have museums of the Canyon associated... More

Wow! What a sight to see as you take your first look over the rim and into the canyon. Breathtaking and awesome. Really makes you believe there is a higher being who created all of this. The staff at the park and in the village were very good, and the trail along the rim was well-mapped to help you know... More

More amazing and beautiful than you can ever imagine or see in photos. I planned a few days at the Canyon. Because I am disabled, my friends thought it was a waste of time. I was so enthralled with the area, I ended up staying a week, and then also went to the North Rim, which I had not planned.... More

There are not words to describe the experience, there isn't a camera to capture the majesty. This is one of those very few places that demand you stand still, be quiet, and try to absorb it. Every American needs this on their bucket list. This was my second visit (the first was 12 years ago). You cannot ever see it... More

What can one say about the Grand Canyon. It's awe inspiring. We walked the rim trail and that gave us good views. The rim trail is mostly paved and an easy walk. There are free shuttle buses that take you to different points if you don't want to walk.

It is quite a thrill to walk up to the rim and suddenly the grandest of all canyons is before you. Unbelievably beautiful! We had a guided tour that immensely improved our experience by offering everything from geology to local historical stories. Seeing the canyon in the winter with the low angle of the sun really enhanced the topography. Fabulous... More
