There will be nothing that I say that can prepare you for the sheer majesty and spectacle that is the Grand Canyon. Imagine the starriest night sky you have every seen and how small and full of wonder that makes you feel and times that by ten. The place reduced me to tears. If you can take the free shuttles...

I can only say that it was spectacular! This is definitely a visit that should be done once in your life. I do have to say that I wouldn't go again. It is definitely a huge tourist location. There are a lot of foreign travelers which took away from the peacefulness of the Grand Canyon. What I mean is that... More

Don't think you're losing a lot by being far from the Skywalk, which I personally believe is not worth the effort. Great views from this point, several trails ranging from beginner to pro, easy access but no food options if you´re heading Phoenix direction.

Wish we'd had a few days but time was short .However we still had time to see artists painting,wild elk wandering in the trees.A lovely meal at El Tovar and a good night at The Grand Hotel Tusayan.Needless to say countless photo opportunities.

This review is written by my son Kavi Bhautik Vaidya. Our family visited the Grand Canyon during summer 2014. Due to time restriction, we only visited the Southern Rim. The temperature was very high in the main Canyon area. Fortunately, my parents bought a 500ml water bottle for everyone. When we reached the Visitors’ Centre, we took a map and... More

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
