After hotel pickup in the Phoenix metro area, including Scottsdale and Mesa, get comfortable in your luxury van for the drive to Grand Canyon National Park. Make a photo stop along Route 66 where you can stretch your legs and snap views of this historic highway.
Reaching your destination at the South Rim, the crown jewel of your day trip begins with your Grand Canyon helicopter tour. Board a state-of-the-art chopper for a safety briefing, then buckle up for the 45-minute flight, following the Colorado River toward the canyon’s eastern end. Your pilot soars above the Kaibab National Forest and through the Dragon Corridor — the widest and deepest part of this incredible natural wonder.
Upon landing, soak up more scenery at a lookout point. After, relax on a driving tour along a 30-mile (48-km) section of the rim as you snap photos and learn about the Grand Canyon's natural history.
After a total of three hours at the national park, you’re driven back to Phoenix.
