Grand Canyon South Rim from Flagstaff with Optional Helicopter Flight

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your Grand Canyon tour begins with morning pickup from your Flagstaff hotel in a climate-controlled vehicle, and a scenic drive to the Grand Canyon.

    Head out of Flagstaff and pass through Oak Creek Canyon and on to the Colorado Plateau. Look for the San Francisco Peaks, a volcanic mountain range with Arizona´s highest mountain, and the historic town of Williams on Route 66.

    Upon arrival at Grand Canyon National Park, stop at the overlook at Grand Canyon Village to soak in the views across the majestic canyon. Keep an eye out for condors – the world´s largest bird.

    After lunch at Maswik Café, your guide takes you to the top viewpoints along the South Rim, Visit Yavapai Point, which also has a geology museum; Lipan Point, where you can look down into the canyon; and Desert View, which has a historic watchtower and Hopi art.

    If you booked the helicopter upgrade, take a scenic helicopter flight that provides sweeping aerial views of the Grand Canyon.

    Later, drive along the Little Colorado Rover and stop at the historic Cameron Trading Post. The trading post opened in the early 1900s on the Navajo reservation and carries fine handicrafts and art from Hopi, Zuni and Navajo artists.

    As you drive back to Flagstaff, watch the sunset light up the sky over the high desert. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

    Best tour we ever went on. The guide “Chris” was awesome, an expert guide who made the trip. The helicopter ride is a once in a lifetime must due tour. Breathtaking view worth every penny. Great for all ages, don’t miss this one.

    It would be better to go in May as weather is a factor on good picture taking. I don’t think slow walking with a cane will be a problem. The staff are attuned to folks with physical limitations, just let them know ahead of... More
