Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Grand Canyon Helicopter and Ground Tour From Phoenix. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Mike, our driver/tour guide (from Detours) was very friendly, pleasant, and, knowledgeable, which made the adventure even more interesting. The gird's eye view of the Grand Canyon from the helicopter was breathtaking. The only thing I didn't like was my seat at the helicopter. The helicopter tour is in a counterclockwise loop and if you are seating in the second row right window, you will miss the iconic scene of the Canyon. They are to the left. But apart from this, the view is amazing. Being in Phoenix just for a weekend, this tour gave me the advantage to see the most I could in one day. Definitely, I'll be back to Phoenix and, to the Grand Canyon to do other activities (rafting, staying overnight, etc.). I strongly recommend this tour.
Unbelievable Pictures and postcards do not do it justice! Les the tour guide was so knowledgeable of the areas. Sedona the ride over the Grand Canyon again unbelievable!
EXCELLENT TREAT BY DE GUIDE, AND HE IS A PERSON WITH THE RIGHT KMOWLEDGE OF WHAT HE SAYS.
THANKS A LOT
WOW!!!!! Les Graff, Tour Leader, led my children, 70-ish year old parents, and another family of 4 on a wonderful, informative, and memorable tour of Sedona, Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, and Navajo Indian Reservation. If all the tour leaders are as informative as Les, than this is can't miss. Les brings a unique PASSION for Geology and Native Americans that is unparalled. My head was swimming in information and I learned so much that I will recommend Les to all my colleagues.
I gave it 5 stars because of Les. I thought about 4 stars because we signed up and paid for a 50 minute helicopter tour. Due to weather, we only were able to go on a 30 minute tour in the sky. There is no refund for the difference in the tour when this happens. That is unfortunate.
I will recommend this tour to everybody. I will suggest they don't risk the helicopter adventure when you book and if you can sign up during the tour, then that is a bonus!
trip was fantastic. Tour guide, Montana, did a fabulous job. BHe was funny, but more importantly very
informative. He knows his stuff... and a professional geologist on our bus confirmed it. The helicopter ride

October 27, 2013 ---Viewing the Grand Canyon by helicopter is the only way to see it - in my opinion. Dave our pilot was great (to actually fly above the canyon and see such beauty is jawdropping). Our tour guide (on land) was Rick R. who by far was absolutely fabulous. Rick was so knowledgeable in all aspects of AZ and had a great sense of humor to go along with it. Rick was great with the camera. We have such awesome shots of our trip. I would DEFINITELY recommend this trip.
I and my family really enjoyed the trip. If anybody wants to see Grand Canyon go through viator.
Fantastic way to see the Grand Canyon. I highly recommend both the ground tour and the helicopter flight over the canyon. The van driver and the choper pilot were very nice and knowledgable.
It is a long way to travel in one day and therefore not enough time spent a locations to look around but given the logistics rather hard to change. However, the helicopter flight was just sensational, WOW was that fun and just so awe inspiring. That tops my list of the best thing I have ever seen. What it also did was make me want to come back and spend more time exploring the canyon both on foot and in my own car. Plus our driver Larry was a mine of information, really great guy.
i Had a fabtastic time, was totally amazed by the views. What made it extra special was JoJo, our guide, he is so knowledgable, interesting, kind and friendly! Would recommend to anyone!
Best way to explore the beauty from Phoenix - Sedona - Flagstaff - The Grand Canyon. The helicopter tour is a must-do on anyone's bucket list. It doesn't get better than a bird's eye view of this gorgeous natural wonder of the world. A big thank you to Viator and Detours !
What a great tour!! I was so pleased with the whole experience. I would recommend this to everyone!
Our tour bus was very comfortable. The stop in Sedona was quick but great. Yummy lunch! Our tour operator was so knowledgable and a complete asset to that company. He was pleasant, funny, great driver and an all around awesome tour guide. He knows everything about the state of AZ. It was so nice to drive around the state too. I had never been any further north than Phoenix. The Grand Canyon was AMAZING and I am so glad I chose to do the Helicoptor Tour. Our pilot was also great!!! All around a day that I will never forget!
I would recommend this tour to anyone, Our tour guide Memo was very informative, on the ground tour part, the helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon was AMAZING!!!!!!! As far as I am concerned it's the only way to see the Grand Canyon, I would not purchase the DVD as you can't understand the audio part when the Pilot talks it is so muffled. I would rate the tour itself 5 out of 5!
