Stretching 446 kilometres from end to end and reaching a maximum depth of almost two kilometres, the Grand Canyon is a colossal natural phenomenon that must be seen to be believed. There are three main rims to the canyon – the South, North and West – with the South Rim the most popular access point, and where you can drive on a forty-kilometre stretch of road that runs along the canyon edge. At the West Rim, visitors can experience the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

"The tour leader/speaker, Colin Bailey, provided many an inspirational moment. He was truly excellent; knowledgeable, inspiring, passionate, very considerate and helpful at all times.
Mr Peter Newman"
"We feel very privileged to have gone on such a special journey and we cannot thank you enough for the care and attention you took in selecting our itinerary.
"The tour was consistently excellent in content, with new experiences each day. It was the overall joy of being in a country with friendly people, full of varied (and sometimes exciting) scenery, ancient forts, ultra modern mosques and even an opera house that we most remember. Our disappointment of not seeing turtles at Sur was compensated by seeing one in Muscat Harbour, diving and surfacing as it fed on the weed attached to the rocks.
Mr Clive Brooks"
"Our holiday was all we hoped it would be and more - the standard of hotels and itinerary were superb and a credit to Cox & Kings. Your staff in this country were also most helpful and courteous, so again congratulations.
Mrs Barbara Johnson"
"The Deccan Oddessy was amazing. The food was fantastic, and the service was excellent.
Mrs Zoe Herbert"
"There were several inspirational moments - the obvious one was Petra itself, which didn't disappoint, but there were less obvious ones too; Little Petra was so atmospheric, the drive through Wadi Rum and the Bedouin lunch was excellent but perhaps the most inspirational was witnessing an impromptu dance and exuberant singing by school girls at Jerash, which obviously wasn't planned but give us a real feeling for the wonderful people of Jordan.
Mrs Sharon Snell"
"Really hard to pick just one. Predictably, the cathedral in Córdoba, the Alcazar in Seville and the astonishing Alhambra Palace complex in Granada, in terms of visits. The fragrance of orange blossom on the streets was sublime. The kindness and warmth of people we met.
Rev Pauline Shelton"
"The entire Ethiopian experience, coffee making in a small hut, sitting with Gelada baboons in the Simian Mountains, the churches of Lalibela, and the exciting participation in Timkat was an experience not to be missed.
Mrs Suzanne Vincent"
"Many thanks for arranging a brilliant itinerary in Namibia – we had an extraordinary time.
"An excellent itinerary. Transfers were seemless.
Mr and Mrs. Johnson"
"We are just returned from a magical trip to Sri Lanka. The whole trip was beautifully organised from end to end and the quality of the hotels was astounding. Cox & Kings have really excelled in this holiday and the Sri Lankan hotels were of the best. We greatly enjoyed the train trip out of Kandy – even more so when, in exchange for a small gift, we were both invited in to the drivers cab for the most spectacular section of the journey. Thank you again for a memorable trip, faultless from end to end.
George and Sue Langton"
"There was not one defining moment. It was simply the gradual build up of excellent day after excellent day.
Mrs Patricia Morton"
"The phenomenal enthusiasm and knowledge of both our guides, especially Violetta in Moscow who was brilliantly informative, enthusiastic and could not have been better. We also thoroughly appreciated the knowledge of our guide Teddy in St Petersburg.
Mrs Meryl Deane"
"The beautiful buildings in Samarkand were awe-inspiring for me.
