    Grand Canyon a Winter Wonder land
    I think we might be snowed in today but who cares it's beautiful out. Road crews are working hard to get the roads clear. It's amazing here in winter, ride the train in, it's a worthwhile added adventure. Free shuttles to wherever you want to trek to in the village. Crowds are non existent, it's the best time to come.

    Beautiful village in National Park Style
    The Grand Canyon Village is excellent: all buildings are in rustic National Park style, there are no traces of all the screaming neon signs that you will see outside of the park borders. When I visited in November, it was not busy at all. As beautiful as the village is, the real attraction is of course the Canyon, and not just the views but especially the hiking possibilities. I have hiked at the canyon floor for 5 days. While that may be too much of a challenge for most people: I would highly recommend to at least hike down at the Bright Angel trail for an hour or so and then return. The experience will be unforgettable.

    Great place to visit canyon
    Thoroughly enjoyed our day here, arrived by train, left by road, long queues of traffic coming in when we left early evening. Village was busy but not overly crowded and when we walked along the rim trail it thinned out a bit. Buildings blend into the area and don’t detract from the look of the village. Best thing of course is the view of the canyon itself, plenty of spots to get that ever important photo. Watch out for the cheeky squirrels, especially if you have food, they tried to get into my bag which I had sat down for a minute. One of the highlights of my US trip.

    impressive surroundings
    Gondwana Canyon Village Disney must have taken their inspiration for designing rocks from here. The chalets are well-equipped and have a nice bathroom. The restaurant is quiet, it has a nice choice of food in buffet-form for the main course. Also plenty of options for vegetarians! The staff are very nice to deal with. There is good wifi in the main building and ny the swimming pools, no wifi or cell coverage in the chalets. When entering the Canyon Park Reserve you still have quite a drive before you will reach the location. We ended up putting the gps location of the facility in our navigation. There is almost no cell coverage in the area. We spotted giraff, monkeys, ostrich, springbok.

    Dining on the south rim of the grand canyon
    When you go to the south rim, you will not only get awe inspiring views of God's handiwork, but you will also meet some great people. We had some servers at the fred Harvey restaurants that really stood out. Lily helped us at the tavern. She is a very hard worker. I wanted to tell her to take five, but I could not catch up to her. Helpful, friendly, polite even under fire. The fred Harvey Cafe has a real gem by the name of Phoenix. He immediately put us at ease and attended to us in a unique manner that we thoroughly enjoyed.

    It never grows old or ceases to take your breath away!
    This was our 9th visit to one of the most extraordinary places on earth. The views can only truly be appreciated in person. Neither picture nor film can capture the grandeur of the experience. We will continue to return in the future as the experience never grows old. Phrases like "breathtaking", "spectacular" and "mind-blowing" barely express the actual experience.

It’s really cool to see this area around the Grand Canyon. There is a lot to see and do here. Restaurants are on the expensive side, but that should be expected.

We went there last year on an organised tour ( we did the regular paved trail of Mater point). This year we returned to walk all the canyon from the Hermit point to the south ( along the trail natural or paved )...a long walk of more of 7 hours... The view is better than only the shuttle and the view point....you have to be in pretty good shape to do that but you can have what you need at the village before...a shuttle leave from the village. There is restaurants, hotel and shops.

A very nice place. Sceneries are a blast. There are too many folks with cars. Ample parking should be provided to get even more tourists.

Really just a grouping of hotels and the train station. There are better things to see and do in the park.
