This is a phenominal way to see the Grand Canyon - a truly amazing day! Our pilot/tour guide was GREAT!
The tour was fabulous. The pilot (Chris) from Sedona was attentive and made sure we were looked after. Very much appreciated. Everyone was friendly and would recommend this tour to anyone.

We had a wonderful time on this tour despite some disappointments. Our Sedona pilot, Scott, was professional, fun and informative. We loved the plane trip to the Grand Canyon and enjoyed the scenery and narration from Scott. The helicopter ride was breathtaking!. This was our first ride on a helicopter and it was beyond my expectations. The scenery and flying into the Grand Canyon is an experience I'll never forget. We loved the pontoon ride on the river and got to experience the helicopter again for the ride back. The helicopter and boat rides are very well organized with hardly any wait time. I was disappointed in the rest of the trip though. We were given 2 hours to eat lunch, go on the Skywalk, explore two sites and take a walking tour with our pilot. There was not enough time to do it all due to the crowds. I really wanted to go on the Skywalk but the line was too long and I did not have time. The view next to the Skywalk was just as good however. There was no time to leisurely explore the two sites (Eagle and Guano point) The lunch was ordinary and cafeteria style or we could have chosen a box lunch with a sandwich. Not what I was expecting when a Bar B Q lunch was advertised. We did not see any native American performances. Scott gave us a great tour of Guano point so that saved the day and the fight back to Sedona was fun. This is a trip I will remember because of the flights, helicopter and Grand Canyon but the land portion left some to be desired.
The plane, helicopter, boat ride and lunch were great. What I expected if not more.
The only issue was when we booked this tour it included the Skywalk admission. There was some sort of mix up. Unfortuntely we spend almost 1 hr trying to sort it out with the staff at the skywalk (which one staff member was very rude and accused us of trying to get on the skywalk for free) and still didn't get to do it. Viator did refunded that portion of our trip with no issues. There was also suppose to be a cultural performance. We did not see this.
The Skywalk section was all about trying to get your money. You are not even allowed to take your camera out on the skywalk (you just paid 30+ dollars for) because they want you to buy pictures they take of you. You can see just as much standing beside it for free and you can take as many pictures as you want.
The rest of the trip was great. I would definitely recommend this tour. Thank you for this experience.
This was worth doing, but I would skip the Sky Walk option. I thought it was overpriced for what it was. I'd recommend spending less time at Eagle Point and more time at Guano Point. The view was better there in my opinion. The helicopter ride was cool, but too short and no commentary from the pilot on what we were seeing. Same for the boat ride. It was too short.
