We are travelling from the UK and visiting GC South Rim in the last week of July. We will have 2/3 days there (in an RV) and fancy the idea of doing a helicopter flight down to the floor, possibly with boat trip added on. I've worked out (from all the really helpful stuff in this forum) that you can only do that from GC West, and have been looking at the package which does a flight from Tusayan to GCW, helicopter down then pontoon float trip. We did a flight over the canyon 8 years ago so don't want to repeat that, and I've always wanted to ride in a helicopter - but is this trip worth the expense? Would we be better just doing a flight down without the boat? or is it worth it at all? I know it will be very hot, especially on the canyon floor. All comments on good and bad bits gratefully received!
