What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure: 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 proper and transfer to the local airport. Your expert pilot welcomes you aboard your small plane and provides informative commentary as you fly over the Verde Valley en route to the Grand Canyon. From your small plane, enjoy views of Red Rock Country 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. Next enjoy a short narrated pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River. 

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 the 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 Cottonwood and hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.

This trip although it might fit everyone's budget, was by far the best day trip to see the most of Arizona and the Grand Canyon by air and boat. An amazing day!!! We were left just grateful and amazed with the beauty and majesty of the Grand Canyon up close. So, I have absolutely no regrets that I booked this tour--it was truly one of my best days of my life so far and got the magnificent pictures to prove it!

Our pilot on the plane Mike and the pilot on the helicopter Chris were great. Mike was like our guardian angel keeping all eight of us in check through out the entire day. The boat tour guides were equally accommodating, but unfortunately I do not remember their names.

Our pilot/guide, Mike, was fantastic! He watched out for us, relayed historical facts, and was funny. And the views and transportation modes-all wonderful! We felt we got our money's worth.
