Grand Canyon Helicopter and Ground Tour From Phoenix
From $429.00
Overview
So many Grand Canyon tours only offer one way to experience the natural wonder, but this guided tour combines a driving and helicopter aspect for more views and vantage points. First board a helicopter to take flight above the South Rim, and then drive through the canyon. Round-trip transport from the Phoenix area, as well as lunch are also provided for convenience.
What to Expect
Your Grand Canyon tour starts with a hotel pickup from the Phoenix area. Board a luxury van, and head toward Grand Canyon National Park.
Your first stop will be along Route 66 for a great photo opportunity.
Your trip continues, and once you arrive at the South Rim, you’ll board a helicopter for your flight in the air. Soar above some of the widest and deepest parts on the canyon, including Kaibab National Forest and Dragon Corridor.
After your helicopter ride, enjoy a picnic lunch at a lookout point before moving on to the ground portion of your guided tour.
In a vehicle, cover 30 miles (48.2 kilometers) along the canyon’s rim as your guide keeps you entertained with historical stories.
Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

Long day but worth the journey

It was a long day, but it was worth it. 4 hours there and 4 back - a lot of travelling but that was the best way to see the Grand Canyon. We later made a trip to Sedona by car ourselves. I'm not sure...More
