Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Amazing place. Definitely you would want to do some hike along the rim trail. If you are fit, consider going down to the canyon by taking bright angel trail. Use shuttles to your advantage. Go on a sunrise tour.

    When we first got to the grand canyon we stopped by the visitors center. We talked to Mike that works at the desk. He was supper helpful. He told us what trails to take. If you ever have the chance to visit this place. You won't be disappointed.

    This was an amazing experience! This remote area was not crowded with hundreds of tourists. Dreamland Safari Tours took my husband and I, and one other couple, it felt like a private tour. Andrea was our guide and she was awesome! This place is not easy to get to but Andrea got us there like a champ! Andrea was knowledgeable about the land, wildlife, and conservation. Andrea took great care of us and was even our photographer for the day! We highly recommend Dreamland Tours & Andrea, she rocked!

    Outstanding view, no matter where you look from. It’s the Grand Canyon, so not much point going on about the incredible views, as what more can you say. The park shuttle bus system works very very well. It took a few buses to clear up the crowd at the terminal point , but it was flawless after that - the ultimate hop off hop on. Spend as much time as you like at each viewpoint, then catch the next bus to the next viewpoint. Congratulations to whoever came up with that system.

    By getting into the Canyon, you see it in a totally different perspective than the millions that stand on the edge on top and look in. At every turn there is a new view and more wonders. Very strenuous hike, do NOT try on a lark as the bottom of the Grand Canyon has similar weather as Phoenix. In other words, many people are fooled because the top is in the pine trees and is cool; but as you descend you are quickly in the desert.
    Reservations are required to stay overnight in the Canyon.

    Great little walk from Mather point (.7 miles). Spectacular views on your walk and then you can enjoy a quick tour of the Geology museum.

    An offshoot of the Grand Canyon, Havasu Canyon has been home to the Havasupai Tribe for the past 800 years. With water being the especially precious commodity that it is in the desert, the Havasupai consider the source of this river to be a sacred place that is intimately connected with the legend of their origin. How do you describe Havasu Canyon? Striking turquoise waters, ruddy canyon walls, rich vegetation. The canyon is all about the water. A limestone lining in the pools reflects the sunlight and sky to create a cool, bright blue color. The turquoise waterfalls of Havasu Canyon are among Mother Nature's greatest works. There are several waterfalls here. But the most famous and most visited and most photogenic of them all is Havasu Falls. The waters plunge over Havasu Falls (100 feet) and Mooney Falls (200 feet) on the way to the Colorado River about 10 miles away. Havasu Falls is located 1.5 miles from Supai Village. It consists of one main chute that drops over a 90-to-100-foot vertical cliff into a series of polls. High calcium carbonate concentration in the water creates the vivid blue-green color. Due to the effects of flash foods, the appearance of Havasu Falls has changed many times. Prior to the flood of 1910, water flowed in a near continuous sheet and the waterfall was known as Bridal Veil Falls. The notch through which water flows first appeared in 1910 but has changed several times since. Water currently flows as one stream. In the past, there were sometimes multiple streams. There are many picnic tables on the site. It is possible to swim behind the falls and enter a small rock shelter behind it. But visiting Havasu Falls requires a strenuous hike over a difficult 10-mile path in each direction. Because Havasu Falls is on Havasupai Tribal lands, not inside Grand Canyon National Park, you must obtain a permit to visit. An overnight stay is a must.
