Make sure you take a reliable pair. That way, it is much easier to see the beautiful rock formations over on the opposite rim of the canyon. Hazel Colby, Kettering. My top tip is to make sure you bring plenty of water to drink and some spare batteries for your camera.

This is the most amazing place you will ever see, so you will be surprised how many photographs you take and how quickly your battery drains. Pre-book a tour; there are loads around and most will pick you up and drop you back to your hotel. Tipping is a must so make sure you take some cash. Take a good rucksack, as a bag on your shoulder is not the best thing to carry on the canyon, and having a backpack will keep your hands free to explore more.
If you can afford it, take a helicopter ride over the canyon — these are said to be wonderful. Sunrise and sunset are the best times to see the canyon in all its glory. Katie Bennett, Plymouth. Make sure you book your pitch early. We are a family of seven, so rented an RV to visit the Grand Canyon. It had to be North Rim as this is much quieter than South Rim. We stayed at the North Rim Campground and booked our pitch on the opening day of reservations — six months before our visit. This is highly advisable as the good pitches go within minutes. Do not miss a walk down into the canyon, but take an early hike; we started at 7am, as it gets extremely hot in August.
We booked all activities at the North Rim Lodge on arrival — an alternative, more expensive but stunning choice of accommodation.
Karen Crawford, Surrey. Annie Storie, Ross-shire.
Make sure you dress in sensible clothes and wear good comfy shoes with ankle support, as you will want to walk short distances to get the best angle for your photographs. Talking of photos, you will take plenty — just keep snapping and edit when you return home. If you have time, go for a ride in a helicopter and you will see the canyon from a totally different perspective.
