Rick the pilot was great! We enjoyed every minute of the flight over the South Rim of the canyon. The helicopter was in great shape and the flight was very comfortable. Wish we could have flown down to the canyon floor next to the Colorado River.
JR was awesome!!! In addition to his knowledge he is very funny and a great human being. I can't stop thinking when we will go back to see more!!!
What made this tour outstanding was our tour guide Sheldon. He has a lot of knowledge of all areas we covered! We had enough time to explore MORE than just the Grand Canyon South Rim! We stopped at a few places before heading to Cameron. A stop at Cameron Trading Post for souvenir shopping BIG and expansive store, so many things to look and purchase you do get a discount as well. We also had our lunch at the restaurant which is also in the trading post. Phenomenal food! You most definitely HAVE to get the Navajo Taco, or the Stew!! Oh my!! So, if you do book this tour, and you find out when you are picked up that your guide is Sheldon, you're in for a real treat! Best fun ever!!! Great job Sheldon!! Couldn't ask for anything better!!!
went out of there way to accommodate us after we messed up our booking. thank you. great copter flight, visited many views of the canyon, our guide chista had a head full of facts for us.
Since our trip to the Grand Canyon was to be short, we thought the best, most informative way to see it would be to take a guided day tour. This was the best decision we could have made. Tim, the tour guide, was full of information and stories of landmarks and colorful characters of the area. The day started with an 8:30 a.m. pick-up from our motel and lasted until about 5:00 p.m. We stopped at numerous points of interest and were treated to a fine lunch at a restaurant on the reservation. I would definitely choose this tour again!
This was a great way to see the sites. Having a local guide take you around helped us make sure we made the most of our limited time. Catherine was extremely knowledgeable and was willing to go off the beaten path if we had something specific we wanted to do. The tour was 8 people so it was nice and small. The day wasn't the best for photographs but it was a lot of fun anyway. The only part of the tour I would say could have been skipped was the Navajo reservation, except that is where you ate lunch. I would have enjoyed more time at the canyon itself or seen something more, like the view of Sunset Crater from a higher vantage point. All in all, was a great experience and I would highly recommend you do this, especially if you only have a few days in the area.
This is a terrific way to tour the Grand Canyon. Our guide confirmed our pick up time at Flagstaff the day before. He was prompt to pick us up at the hotel. Eduardo was very knowledgable about the history of the Grand Canyon as well as the entire culture both past and present of the surrounding area. He gave us adequate time to tour at the drop off points and kept the entire group on scheduling by defining the time to return to the van. The tour was well organized and allowed us to enjoy the sights. This is a great way to see the south rim of the Grand Canyon.
