Did a solo trip down to Arizona back in 2012, took a tour to the south rim of the Grand Canyon. Spent several hours looking out to the amazing view, the canyon goes on forever and it really is spectacular. If you're at all interested in Geology then this place is a must see. I love the red rocks and... More

We went during the winter season and it was awesome. The spring and summer are filled with people but during winter it is nice as long as you can stand the cold. We were lucky to have some sun one of the three days we were there.

Check the weather before you go, or you will be disappointed. This is the most incredible place to visit in sunny not too hot weather. Mind boggeling views, spectacular walks, and loads of activities.

It's one of those things that everyone knows you have to do if you're traveling in the American Southwest, almost to the point of being a cliche. You can see photos of the Grand Canyon all over the internet to your heart's content. None of that prepared me for the sheer vastness and depth of the canyon. It is truly... More

Everyone has seen pictures of the Grand Canyon, but until you see it in person, you can not believe the magnitude of the canyon. One could go on and on about just how beautiful this place is but it is a must see to believe. I guess weather can play a factor in anyone's visit, so plan accordingly and dress... More

Even though we caught only glimpses of the canyon, due to sunset and rain it is a must see!!! Plan to stay a few days! We didn't allow enough time-what were we thinking??? We "battled" the wind and rain as we drove (there's a nice trail along the edge that would have been great to walk in better weather) to... More

It was a chilly afternoon, but even though we weren't prepared for the weather this place is simply spectacular! It's $30 for each car load of people, but do yourself a favor and get the America the Beautiful National park pass for $80. It would have been nice to have more places to purchase the National Park passport, which I... More

Between Grandview Point and Mather Point there is a stop worth making on the right handside, it's easy to miss, but worth stopping for; it's names 'Duck on a Rock' and it's not misnamed - look at the pictures.

Made the trip from Sedona with wife and parents in late April. My parents are early eighties. They were easily able to make easy walk to the rim. It's definitely a bucket list view

Visited during Christmas 2016.The snow added an extra special viewing experience of the canyon. Enjoyed the sunrise view more than the sunset - calm, serene and undisturbed with very few people around. Did a part of the South Kaibab trail, which had some amazing views. The Rim Shuttle buses were quite frequent, but sometimes they did not stop at certain... More
