This Grand Canyon day trip combines sights from both land and sky. After departing Phoenix, enjoy a scenic drive including a stop along Route 66. Enjoy a 45-minute helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon, which follows the Colorado River. Spend three hours at legendary Grand Canyon National Park, including a canyon rim driving tour before returning to Phoenix by luxury van.
  • Grand Canyon day tour from Phoenix
  • Brief photo stop along Route 66 including a rest break
  • 45-minute helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon
  • Guided driving tour along the rim of the Grand Canyon
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.

The BEST way to see the beautiful Grand Canyon! Fred was a great pilot and was perfect how he advised us to look right and then turn our heads as we entered into the Canyon!

Montana was a fantastic ground tour guide with lots of knowledge and insight to share. Unfortunately we were unable to do the helicopter portion due to poor visibility and weather conditions. Highly recommended tour!!

All in alll it was a great tour. All be it, my tour didn't quite follow the tour description. There was a plus and and a minus here and there. The pick up at the hotel was a great convenience. There was a small detour to Sedona to pick up others. This was a plus. It gave a great opportunity to see red rock country. Spent about 25 minutes there. Took a photo or two. Then onwards to Williams. Spent about 30 minutes there and few photos taken. Note, the views and vistas along the way were spectacular. Next up is the helicopter tour. Cause of smoke in the canyon the helicopters can't fly into the greater part of the canyon. We can't do the 45 min tour. We are offered an abbreviated '30 min' tour just across and back. Actual time almost 25 minute with a 30 refund. Still a spectacular experience but not what was expected or described. Then we spent about a half hour or so on the rim and then the return back. I would have liked to have spent a little more time along the conyon rim. The views may not have been crisp but were amazing. I don't when if ever I would have the opportunity to go to the Grand Canyon again. Notes: there's a lot of driving involved. There's a lot of distances to cover. You do spend most of your time in transport. There are ample pit stops. I wouldn't have called lunch a lunch. A ceasar salad , two Oreos, tiny bag of chips, and a small apple a meal. When there's an opportunity to get something to eat along the way, do so or bring your own meal with you. It's 13 hours. Water is provided.

The guide was very friendly and informative, the Helicopter tour was brilliant, and it was awesome to see the Grand Canyon from above in it's varsity. We did only get a very limited time in the park it's self.

If you are in the PHX area, this is the trip to do. They pick you up at your hotel, drive you up whilst stopping for some photo ops and lunch. The driver (I think it was Mike or Mitch sorry =( he was very knowledgeable and fun. Then they drop you off at airport for your AMAZING flight, they are waiting for you when your return to take you to a few more scenic spots before escorting you back to your abode on a very comfortable tour bus! I took my father on this trip and he loved it, it was a once and a life time event!

The guide was late at the pick-up but he was nice along the day. The helicopter great experience! We also enjoyed the rest of the tour, Sedona was a discovery

Loved this trip! I was scared of the helicopter but once I was in and flying I was fine. The pilot was so calming and showed us the Grand Canyon in perfect style. Our van driver Jason did a good job making sure we were comfortable and seeing what we wanted to see. It was a great day!

This tour was great. Picked our family up north of Phoenix so I didn’t have to drive. Robert our bus driver friendly and knowledgeable. BJ our pilot was very skilled at flying and has a good sense of humor. He made us all feel comfortable and we saw the Grand Canyon Like I never dreamed of! Thanks
