My boyfriend and I decided to take a Monday day trip in mid-April to the Grand Canyon South Rim before our red-eye flight back to the East Coast. I was nervous that we were being a bit too ambitious, but I found that it was...More

We do not recommend the Slow River Raft Tour with Xantera from the Grand Canyon. For a family of 5 the cost was $675.00 - this included a bus ride, a 4 hour river raft tour, and ham sandwiches. Oh, and no where near or...More

We were first-timers to the Canyon. The late-October weather was perfect - sunny and cool. No big crowds this time of year - part of our plan. For the walkers/hikers, there are lots of trails and plenty of room for long walks. Also, there are...More

This is the Grand Canyon. Take the 20 mile drive and head to the Desert Tower. No families. No crowds.

Love the views! Our family enjoyed our visit and tour by Canyon Ministries! Lots of places to be amazed and places to eat since you will likely spend a whole day there.

I have seen pictures of the Grand Canyon but you can't get the true felling unless you go there. The views were beautiful. The size of the canyon is unbelievable.

Unbelievable. Definitely a must see. Worth the 4.5 hour drive from Vegas each way in a single day if you do not have Time to spend one night. Perfect day for our 25th anniversary.

Everyone has heard about it. Most have seen pictures of it. But to actually see it is absolutely amazing. The South Rim of the canyon is about a 75 minute drive off I-40 but it's worth it. I didn't have all day and in November...More

Very enjoyable overnight stay at Bright Angel Lodge. 5th visit to south rim over the last 35 years. Buses in the park are convenient and much better than searching for parking at every overlook.

I think the best short hike you could do would be South Kaibab down to Ooh-Aah Point. Take the orange shuttle from the main visitor center to get to it. Might take an hour and a half of your time. After that, I would do... More
