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.”

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.

The helicopter tour was excellent. Well organized. Gives you perspective of the Canyon you just can not get from the ground. Jeep tour was nothing spectacular. Was taken to 3 or 4 viewing points. We had stopped at two of them the day before. Tour guide was good.

Helicopter tour was amazing. To see the Grand Canyon from that vantage point is a must see. The jeep tour gave us a great view of scenic points of GC.

The jeep tour was nice - the guide was very informative and really knew his stuff. Booking a jeep trip I expected more of an off road experience but was disappointed to only be driven from viewing point to viewing point which I could have done myself.
The helicopter trip was superb - the tour operator was great considering Viator had given me the wrong departure time and we arrived too late. We ended up doing the jeep tour first instead and the airport people put us on a later flight - many thanks to them. Viator get your times right! We were only there for a short while and the confusion could have led to great disappointment.
