We weren’t sure because it was a lot of money. But it was amazing!!!!! The best experience! Daniel, the pilot, was the best!!We took the Grand Celebration because of the ECOSTAR helicopter, and it was such a good decision. Go for it!

This was awesome. Our pilot Michelle was terrific pointing specific points of interests, and always professional, felt safe with her the whole trip. The Skywalk overlooking the Grand Canyon made the trip worth the money. So magestic!! Highly recommend this tour.
