What to Expect
Meet for this Grand Canyon helicopter tour at Grand Canyon Airport in Tusyan, Arizona. Check-in, board your helicopter with wraparound windows, and get ready for a flight above the canyon. Start at the South Rim, and enjoy a bird’s-eye view of sights including Kaibab National Forest, the Colorado River, Painted Desert, Desert View Watchtower, Marble Canyon, Dragon Corridor, and Point Imperial. Your flight also flies to the North Rim, so you can take pictures of that part of the canyon, too. This is one of the few tours that’s able to cover two rims of the canyon in such a short amount of time. Your Grand Canyon helicopter flight ends back where it started—at the Grand Canyon Airport. Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

I’ve never been on a helicopter tour and I was debating if this would be worth it - especially given the price. It is absolutely worth every penny! Our guide Jesse was fantastic and everyone was very friendly. Great tour. Highly recommend.
