The Grand Canyon is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the US (named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979) and each year many thousands of people visit this stunning geological formation. The Grand Canyon itself is over 17 million years old and stretches for an almost unbelievable length of 277 miles – and in some places it is up to 18 miles wide! There are many places along the Grand Canyon that are excellent viewing points.

When you travel to the Grand Canyon on a motorcoach trip you will be taken to places such as the South Rim where you can reach the top of the Tanner Trail. This is a trail that is much-loved by hikers who want to see amazing views of the Canyon. Coach parties who are looking to follow the trail can park at the South Rim car park and continue their journey from here.
It is also possible to take a helicopter over the Grand Canyon so that you can see it from a bird’s eye point of view, although this experience is definitely not for the faint-hearted! If you are feeling really brave, you might want to take a stroll out on the Skywalk. This transparent horseshoe-shaped bridge will give you the giddy thrill of being suspended right over the edge of the Canyon, and it required nerves of steel!
