Grand Canyon Helicopter and Ground Tour From Phoenix

Grand Canyon Day Tour From Phoenix

After being picked up by luxury van from the Phoenix metro area, your first stop is the famous Red Rocks of Sedona. During the brief stop you can stretch your legs, take photos of the Red Rocks while your guide will pick up your lunch at a Sedona restaurant to take as a picnic to the Grand Canyon.

Continuing on your scenic drive though Oak Creek Canyon, one of the USA's most scenic drives, you'll experience dramatic elevation changes as you wind through 2000 vertical feet (600 meters) of red walled canyon before emerging into a ponderosa forest.

Once at the Grand Canyon South Rim, board a state-of-the-art helicopter for a 50-minute flight over the Grand Canyon. You’ll fly towards the eastern end of the canyon, following the Colorado River, over the picturesque Kaibab Nation Forest and though the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the Grand Canyon.

Spending a total of three hours at the Grand Canyon National Park, you can take in the natural beauty of the site by walking along the rim trail, go shopping or have lunch at one of the lookout points. Also, at the canyon you'll explore a 30-mile (48 km) section of the road that winds along the rim of the canyon showcasing the best rim views and history along the way.

As you head back to Phoenix you’ll drive though the Navajo Nation and the Painted Desert with a stop at an authentic Navajo trading post.

Where do I start, defiantly 1 of the wonders of the world breath taking views at every turn. Our guide Marc was amazing and had a wealth of knowledge and took us to not too busy places to get the best views. The helicopter was wow no words can describe the views you get again the pilot/guide was great and pointed out all the different areas. Expensive trip but worth every penny.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We loved the trip and was well worth what we paid. Unfortunately for us due to circumstances out of our control we weren't able to get on the helicopter. However, there were many other highlights during our trip. Thanks to Chad for a great day.
We were told that the helicopter portion of our trip would be reimbursed, however we haven't seen that yet. Hopefully it will happen soon.

I would suggest making sure people know they can't take a purse. I was not happy to leave my wallet and medicine with the van driver.
