Tied in a south rim tour with train journey, seamless in organisation, What can you say, words are often superfluous to what you can see. Amazing, breathtaking and obviously incredible to take in the vastness from many positions around the south rim.

Most breathe taking view!! The south rim takes few hours more than west rim but its worth it..I suggest you take the Buck Wild tour. They will take you spots that are beautiful and less crowded.
