We enjoyed our trip to the Grand Canyon south rim. They are some amazing views. Take time to do some of the hiking and definitely bring your good camera!

A very worthwhile trip. We stayed in-park long enough to drive to both ends and take a guided hike down one of the trails. Personally, I strongly recommend hiring a guide if you’re unfamiliar with the terrain or hiking in the conditions.

Came into the Canyon via train, so we had no car. Was that an issue? Not at all. The shuttle service within the canyon is really outstanding. There are various lines you can take to see what you need to see. 1st thing we did...More
