Hey Nataila, That is wonderful that they are wanting to check out this great Natural Wonder! As mobility is a concern, and the fact that you will be there in December, I would definitely suggest a driving tour along Hermit Road at the far west side of Grand Canyon Village. In the winter months, private vehicles are allowed to drive as they please (during other times you are at the will of the shuttles). There are many stops along the 7-8 mile road where you can park and get the panoramic views within a few feet including "The Abyss" and the sunset friendly "Mohave Point". Just watch that snow and ice! Afterwards, step into the El Tovar Lounge for some hot chocolate... mmm Canyon Nick
