Helicopters don't land right at the south rim. You can take a tour by airplane that includes a helicopter once you get to the south rim airport they will fly you over the south rim and back to the airport where you can then take a shuttle to the different photo stops along the edge. Check tours on Vegas.com there is a couple otherwise your only other option would be a bus tour which takes forever.

John is correct, Helis out of Vegas do not fly to the South Rim, they go to the skywalk.

South rim is The canyon view to see. Went with Maverick last July with my son. Bus to air field, 30 min flight to GC area, van ride to a lodge for the standard turkey sandwich lunch and amazing views, then a 20 min helicopter ride over that part of the canyon. It is not really comparable to the west rim its so much better/bigger. Longer yes, more expensive yes, but if you want THE view of GC and you need to do it in one day, not driving for many hours go south rim, Maverick for us was great
