What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon Helicopter Flights with Optional Jeep Tour

Grand Canyon Helicopter and Jeep Tour

The 25- or 45-minute flight portion of the tour begins at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport with a pilot meet and greet. Buckle up in the state-of-the-art ECO-Star helicopter and lift off, first flying over the 1.6-million acre Kaibab National Forest, which borders both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon. As the helicopter glides over the canyon, take in the stunning aerial view. The wide-open location of the flight provides an amazing view of this incredible natural wonder. Don’t forget a camera.
Back at the airport, hop in an open-air Jeep for a ground adventure. The tour guide will drive to some incredibly scenic spots for the view of a lifetime – Moran Point, Pipe Creek Vista and Duck Rock, with a final stop at stunning Grandview Point, the southernmost lookout location at the south rim of the Grand Canyon. If on a sunset tour, watch the walls of the canyon change color as the sun settles in the sky. Finally, return to the National Geographic Visitor Center’s IMAX Theater to watch “Grand Canyon: The Movie.”

This tour was simply amazing. I went with my mom a few weeks and we're still talking about it.
The helicopter ride was an unforgettable experience. We liked how the pilot didn't talk much and just let us take in the beauty of the canyon. He played some music that accompanied the ride perfectly. We started to tear up at the end because it was just so surreal. Seeing the canyon from this view is a must.
Afterwards, we saw the IMAX film, which was actually very cool! It provided great info on the history of the Grand Canyon.
Then, we did the sunset jeep ride with Chris. He was a phenomenal guide and took us to the best, least crowded spots around the canyon. We liked how he didn't talk our ears off, but provided us with good conversation and interesting information. He also gave us time to take pictures and he took us on some walks to breathtaking views. The timing of the tour was perfect it wasn't painfully long, but just long enough to take it all in. I highly recommend the Jeep company. There's one in Sedona, too.
Overall, the experience was unforgettable. I do wish Viator would have been better about communicating when and where to go for our tours, but luckily we had so much fun it didn't really matter in the end. The helicopter company was helpful in providing that information.
Overall, highly recommended!

Pure magic! Well-organized all the way. Super guide for the jeep tour who was 'out-running' the rain and sleet, giving us fantastic views and very informative comments. Thank you very much to everybody for making my birthday treat so special!

This tour had everything you need. We took the morning helicopter out over the canyon so you can see how large it really is. Then the Jeep tour lets you get out and explore. You still have 1/2 day left to go back and take advantage of exploring on your own.

Guide was great. He shared lots of unique information we would not have had on our own.

4 star rating: Recommended April 2016

This was our first helicopter ride. On a windy day it was a bit bumpy, but our pilot was very relaxed and checked on us regularly. The flight through the canyon was fantastic. Great views and all of the passengers shared window views. A helicopter gets you views that you can't see otherwise at the Grand Canyon. Expensive but worth it.
