The unique combinations of geologic color and erosional forms of layered bands of many color rocks are Amazing, this was on the South Rim. I can;t wait to go back and see it from the North Rim. I...

One of the most breath-taking experiences I have been on - so incredible and expansive in person - you cannot get it from any pic nor video - just amazing the detail and beauty of nature and it's development over time! I cannot wait to go back and see the North Rim!

I was advised that the south rim is much better for views than the west rim near Vegas, and the sights blew me away. It is jaw-dropping and not to be missed. It is also a good 20 degrees farenheit cooler than Vegas which made the trip even more enjoyable. No photographs do the place justice; you need to see... More

We enjoyed the drive along the South Rim of the Grand Canyon having entered the park at the East Entrance. As we were on our way to Las Vegas we were only in the park for a few hours. This is definitely somewhere to visit again

We had been to the Grand Canyon Twice before. Both trips were day trips and we vowed that we would come back. We went back with our motor home and stayed for six days. We walked the rim which is fabulous in itself. Different scenery at every turn. Went out to Hermit’s rest and spent time at several spots along... More

We bought a package trough the Gran Canyon Hotel. It seemed a bit costly but when the three days were over we thought it was a bargain. The package included two night at the Grand Canyon Hotel in Williams AZ, two breakfasts plus a train to the Canyon and a bus trip around the South Rim We did upgrade in... More

Make sure you allow plenty of time to get away from the crowds at the visitor centre and walk a few miles along the rim trail. Incredible views and a sense of solitude the further away you get!

We've been fortunate to be able to visit Grand Canyon twice and both visits have been fabulous experiences. It's impossible to convey the majesty and beauty of this place with words or even pictures. You have to stand there, on the edge of the Canyon, and just drink it in. It made me realise what 'awesome' really means. We went... More

This is a definite bucket list item. One of the seven natural wonders of the world, you will not be disappointed to visit here. Take enough time to see the canyon from multiple viewpoints. If you have time, consider hiking down into the canyon. Just remember that it can get much hotter down in the canyon than on the rim,... More

The Grand Canyon is awe-inspiring beyond description. The access points at the South Rim are well organized and feature a shuttle service to help get around the very large park. I took about an hour to hike from a viewing point to the village of restaurants and shopping, where I promptly drank an entire pitcher of water. The strong and... More
