These air tours let you see and experience the marvels of the canyon in a way that would otherwise take you a few days or even weeks. Hands down, they’re a great way to see America’s only Natural Wonder of the World!
You can take deluxe Grand Canyon helicopter tours at either the South or the West Rim. South Rim air tours begin at Grand Canyon National Park Airport in Tusayan, Arizona (most travelers based in Sedona, Scottsdale, Flagstaff or Phoenix take this option); all West Rim flights start in Las Vegas. No flights connect the two rims, and no Grand Canyon helicopters fly from Vegas directly to the South Rim.
These helicopters are amazing. The ones used for the deluxe tours are superb. Most of the time, they’re EcoStar 130s. They’re ultra-modern and their passenger cabins are much larger than those of other helicopters. They also offer terrific climate control, wraparound windshields and stadium-style seating.
This is an experience of a lifetime.
