From South Rim: Grand Canyon Spirit Helicopter Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 45 minutes
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to the Grand Canyon. Our driver, Dominick, picked us up at The Little America Hotel in Flagstaff. There were 9 of us so we had the entire van to ourselves, which was nice. Dominick was very friendly, very knowledgeable, answered any questions, took many pictures for us (and did a fabulous job at that) and was just did a great job as our tour guide. It was one of the best days we had on our vacay...even though we were learning things, it was pleasant and enjoyable. I would recommend this tour 100% and if you are lucky, you will get Dominick as your tour guide. I want to also add to this that we had been to the Grand Canyon 3 years ago, we drove ourselves and were happy with what we saw. However, this time, with the tour, we saw so much more..places we hadn't even known about.
Our guide, "Kevin" was very knowledgeable. We appreciate that he took us to the parts of the Grand Canyon that were not busy. With the hundreds of cars coming into the park we were concerned that we'd be shoulder to shoulder on the rim of the canyon, but he knew just where to take us to see the beautiful sites and no crowds. That knowledge of where to go to avoid the crowds, but still all the amazing views was worth the price of the tour. Our small group enhanced the experience. We are glad that we purchased our tour. I had a Senior Pass to the park and could have gotten into the park for free, but I chose to purchase the guided tour of the canyon and it was worth the price.
They make it easy and pick you up at your hotel. Our guide Anthony was the best! He didn't overwhelm us with too many facts and let us enjoy our trip with our own self exploration. He was always ready to answer any questions we had. My day was so full and rich, that I literally forgot it was my birthday. It was the best!
Our guide Matt was exceptional. He was full of wonderful facts about the canyon, Flagstaff and Oak Canyon. We visited numerous sites at the canyon that Were not over populated. If you go ask for Matt, he is great!
This was an amazing way to see the entire Grand Canyon! Our pilot, Forrest, was great, and the helicopter was comfortable. "Breaking the rim" was one of the most exciting experiences we'll ever do!
