What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure from Sedona: Helicopter Tour and Lunch

Walk Across the Skywalk!

If you're short on time and want a full experience of the Grand Canyon, this tour has it all!

Your day trip starts with hotel pickup in Sedona and transfer to the local airport. Your expert pilot welcomes you aboard your small plane and provides informative commentary as you fly over the Sonoran Desert en route to the Grand Canyon. From your small plane, enjoy views of Red Rock Canyon and Sycamore Canyon as you approach the Grand Canyon's West Rim, the traditional home of the Native American Hualapai tribe.

Upon landing at West Rim Airport, transfer to a helicopter with large viewing windows. In just seven minutes, you'll soar from the rim of canyon and descend 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) to the Colorado River, taking in astonishing views all around you.

Afterward, return by helicopter to the canyon rim and transfer to the West Rim shuttle. The shuttle follows an incredibly scenic road along the canyon rim to Eagle Point. Disembark there for amazing views and the option to purchase a ticket to Skywalk, a top attraction. Skywalk consists of a transparent bridge that extends over the edge of the canyon; the thrilling walk gives you incredible views of the canyon floor far below your feet. At Eagle Point, you also watch a Hualapai cultural performance before continuing to Guano Point for lunch. Enjoy a hearty barbecue lunch at a spot on the canyon's rim.

Your full-day tour wraps up with your return flight to Sedona and hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.

Wonderful tour from start to finish. Very friendly and engaging service from the time they picked us up at our hotel all the way to the return back to the hotel. Plane ride was great; pilot narrated interesting facts and pointed out many sites to see and take photos. Pilot was also the tour guide on the ground. He gave us great tips to save time and get to the best sites quickly and avoid waits. Eagle point and Guano points were breath taking. Food variety was good. Helicopter ride to the river was fun. Helo pilot posed with guests for photos. Boat ride was quick; operator was informative. Despite the long day, wished it was longer. Overall, would recommend this trip to anyone.

Great tour! Plane ride to canyon much better than anticipated. Easy in Sedona and from airport in Canyon. Only caution and reason for not being five stars is the timing of the helicopters/boats and large crowds. This caused real delays getting to helicopter and getting to boat. Bus trips around canyon were fine. Notably, the flood of people also affected staff... our boat ran out of gas and we had a temporary rafting trip too.
