While I've been to the Grand Canyon in the past, I'd never seen the South Rim before, and this was definitely the way to see it! The pilot took us out over the deepest part of the canyon, giving us entertaining facts the whole way. Definitely impressive, and the contrast between the red canyon walls and the green forest was beautiful! The entire tour was laid out perfectly, allowing plenty of time at each stop and we never felt rushed. The free time to explore and eat our picnic lunch at the edge of the canyon was relaxing and enjoyable. Just be sure to bring something warm to wear, as it's a much higher elevation than Vegas and was chilly in the early morning. Would definitely recommend this tour
The South Rim was an exhilarating experience! Absolutely the perfect way to vacation for a day. Who knew that something so beautiful was so close to Las Vegas? The guides were informative and very hospitable to everyone who took the tour. The pilot even let my brother who was sitting in the very back of the aircraft walk up to the front and see how everything worked and controlled the plane. He was so excited to be in the airplane since his goal is to be in the Airforce. It was the absolute perfect day for my eleven year old brother and I. We both left the tour of the South Rim with life long memories and great pictures!
From the check in process to the the pilots and drivers. Everyone was so helpful and courteous that the whole process went smoothly. The flight to the Grand Canyon was much smoother than I had expected. Going over the Grand Canyon by helicopter was the best part of this trip in my opinion.
Great tour! Everyone was so helpful from the people that checked us in to the pilots (both airplane and helicopter). The Grand Canyon was amazing to see from the helicopter and I can't wait to go again.
What a beautiful day. Was so glad we did the helicopter tour as it was amazing flying through the canyon in all of its beauty and splendor. Could even see river rafters on the Colorado River. The views from the Bright Angel Lodge were also impressive. The staff of the tour company was great from the check in, airplane pilots, helicopter pilot and bus driver. They were very informative and kept you updated on the schedule the whole trip. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
If you are looking for an awesome view, this is definitely the tour to take. It was amazing.
We went on the South Rim tour with the helicopter upgrade. It was a comfortable and scenic ride to the South Rim. The helicopter upgrade was absolutely breathtaking. We also enjoyed our free time to explore the views at Bright Angel. I recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys traveling in style to the beautiful Grand Canyon South Rim
Upon first arrival I was terrified. I’m not a big fan of flying at all but I can honestly say this was the best experience I have ever had! The jet flight out to the canyon was wonderful. You get to see the area at a view most never get to see. Once we touched down, we were taken over to the helipad. This is where the fun started! The flight was so incredible and the moment you go “over the edge” your breath is taken away. I couldn’t believe how amazing the canyon looks from the air! We also got time after our flight to spend at Bright Angel lodge to have a nice lunch and enjoy the beauty of the South rim. All of the staff were wonderful and I can’t wait to travel again with them!! Not a tour to be missed!!!
The South Rim airplane tour was AMAZING! The south rim was absolutely beautiful. The company was so nice and helpful through the whole tour. Seeing the south rim in a helicopter was such a different experience. The scenery was breath taking, the lunch that was provided with the company was very good. Hands down a great tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour was awesome with both airplane and helicopter parts. The view was stunning from the air and this is definitely the best way to see Grand Canyon.
The views that you see on the way to the South Rim are amazing - Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the West Rim! Our pilots were very knowledgeable and kept us informed of what we were able to see as we were flying by.Once we arrived at the airport at the South Rim we were greeted by our driver that took us to the Bright Angel Lodge. The view there is absolutely Incredible! Words are not enough to explain the beauty of the Canyon.There is so much serenity that is felt in the atmosphere. I took advantage of the Helicopter option for this tour. The depths of the Canyon are absolutely amazing. This is is a must when traveling to the South Rim. Our Helicopter pilot gave us so much knowledgeable information as we were on the flight. The views are excellent and only be seen via Helicopter. Thank you Viator for the wonderful experience.
Loved this tour! Everyone was very courteous and knowledgeable. My daughter and I loved the helicopter portion the best. A great way to see the Grand Canyon!
Awesome tour!! The most beautiful scenery I have ever seen before. I would highly recommend this tour because you not only see the best of the Grand Canyon on foot but from the air if you choose the upgrade of the 25 minute helicopter flight.
The South Rim is absolutely beautiful! Once we got to the Grand Canyon we took a helicopter flight, which was a blast and a great way to see the canyon. Our helicopter pilot was very friendly and informative during the flight. Then we got on a bus that took us to Bright Angel Lodge where we had about an hour to eat our box lunch and walk around. There are several different lookout points to visit. I highly recommend this tour - I had a blast!
Great tour! This was a very smooth ride for a small plane. We upgraded to include the helicopter flight and it was well worth the money. Our pilot was very informed of the area and gave us great information. Everyone from the terminal staff to the pilots and drivers were very friendly and nice. Even the drivers on bus had lots of information to share with us. We had a very nice time. The weather was perfect and the lunch was a nice size for a boxed lunch. Thanks!
