    went on the grand southern last year and LOVED IT!

    Optionals worth doing:
    Hot air ballooning
    Grand canyon heli flight – I did the 45 minute flight,
    make sure you do the rafting in colorado!!!! awesome, with great eye candy.
    ohh do the swamp tour thats awesome too..

    Depending on the tour guide, but our one took us to the ghostbar, play boy club/bar…
    It really is an awesome tour, would do it again if i could,
    if you get the chance, in orlando – the hotel you stay at is near a place called old town, theres a huge ride called “sky coaster” i thin its one of the biggest DO IT. I did and it was freaking amazing,..

    Hey.. I did the grand southern last april…I agree… Definitely do the hot air ballooning and the heli flight over the grand canyon!
    We didnt do the rafting in colorado though, we went snow mobilling, which was heaps good fun!!

    I did the GS in Jan 09 and had a blast… It was my first holiday alone (all before then had been with family) I got to do the Snow mobilling and i actually think that was one of the most fun things i have done..

    I also fell in love with New York , i thought before i went that i would fall in love with LA but i was ready to get going after a week..

    Now i am gong to complete the US experience and am doing the Grand Northern in September… So Excited… :D
