It was incredible! Well worth the expense. After arriving at the west rim, we bought our access passes to the park and checked in with the tour group. It was like a well oiled machine - and we felt very comfortable with the process. The views from the helicopter down the side of the Canyon were unlike anything I have seen before. It was breathtaking. And once we were down in the Canyon, we had the sweetest guide on the boat tour along the river. All in all, it was awesome! Highly recommend.

great tour. we traveled from Florida with our 4 year old daughter and 2 teenage sons and the ride was comfortable and safe for all 5 of us. The length of the tour was about right. Great views of the canyon. Recommend the landing at the bottom of the canyon. Staff was happy to answer questions about the history. Highly recommended.

The helicopter ride was an amazing experience. It is the best way to see Grand Canyon and provides the awesome views.

excellent - friendly efficient staff and check in, wonderful tour, we didn't want a 3.5 hour trip in a helicopter, just too long for us with the 3 kids, so this was perfect a 15 min helicopter ride, followed by a boat trip, plenty of time for photos etc. Amazing view of the skywalk that we had just been on. Any comment at all would be that an extra 10 minutes on both the helicopter and the boat would be just that bit better in order to see a little more. I would highly recommend.

This was an absolute best ever trip we have ever taken! Our pilot was fantastic and our journey to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and back to the top was breathtakingly beautiful!! Thank you for the wonderful time!!
