Being of the view that I will quite probably only get the chance to visit the Canyon once, and making the most of each stop in my tour from the east to the west coast of the states, the helicopter ride over and in the canyon was never a question. Though I paid $275, for 45 minutes, I can definitely say it was worth every dollar. The close proximity to the canyon is priceless. Our pilot was great, and I was thrilled to be co-pilot, with probably the best views of the ride. He played music in the background of the ride, and as we flew over the forestry and dipped into the canyon listening to Coldplay Paradise, I really did feel like I was in Paradise. That feeling alone, is worth the money. As one of the wonders of the world, I feel like you have to take the helicopter ride to truly appreciate the size and beauty of the canyon. There's great views of the Colorado river, and our pilot chatted throughout, pointing out interesting elements of the canyon. Of course the ride doesn't last long enough, but it's unforgettable. Make the most of your trip to the canyon, don't be tight, and make a great memory! Highly, highly recommend. ( I didn't book through a company, just at the helicopter desk at the Canyon itself)
