The grand canyon is stunning, the many reviews here are crystal clear about that. We have only one thing to add: go below the rim! If you follow one of the trails (we did the part of the Bright Angel trail) down, the colors and the magnitude of the canyon come out even better. And you'll get much better photos... More

It is no wonder why they call it one of the natural wonders of the world. . We were given a road map of the Village, we got lost easy The bus shuttle on the map seemed easy to understand , but it was a little confusing as to where to go at first. after a few stops it made... More

We have been to Grand Canyon before, both south rim and north rim. We brought visitors with us this time. The weather was beautiful, with blue sky and a few white clouds. Finding the best place to park was a bit difficult. We ended up driving over to El Tovar and parked there. It was a short distance to the... More

I could sit here and write paragraphs and essays in an attempt to describe the South Rim of the Grand Canyon for you but that is all is would be - an attempt. Words cannot truly express how beautiful this place really was. It was captivatingly breathtaking, tranquil, and surreal. Both my partner and I loved it and it was... More

We drove to the south rim from Las Vegas-made it in a little less than 4 hours. It was well worth the drive-a once in a lifetime experience that I will not ever forget. We got there around sunset and visited the canyon that night and the next day we spend the morning. Didn't really feel the need to spend... More

It is hard to beat the sheer beauty of this wonder--indescribable and ever-changing. The Village is laid out along the South Rim and it can be challenging to find a place to park, but the view is worth it. Sadly, many of the restaurants there do not take advantage of the location by offering open views of the canyon, but... More

There are very few sites in this country that I would say every American MUST see in their lifetime. This is one of them. Seeing a photo of the Grand Canyon cannot relate the awe of seeing it in person. The village on the South Rim is very charming and also has lots to see. Regular shuttle buses make it... More

I made my first visit to the Grand Canyon in 1973. I poohed-poohed it on the entire drive to the south rim. Walking from the parking lot to the rim, I still figured it was just another deep canyon. As I approached the rim and saw the view I was truly humbled. We made a short hike down one of... More
