I've read through the forum about trips to the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas and noted that the South Rim is the place to go.
My dilemma is whether or not to add the helicopter ride to our plane flight to the South Rim.
The circumstances are that my friend and I won't have time to drive to the South Rim and stay overnight. I'm likely to come back to Vegas and will be able to do this but my friend probably won't, not in the near future anyway.
They really wanted to do a helicopter flight over the canyon but didn't realise that these trips were to Grand Canyon West. So, we're prepared to pay the money and take the plane flight to the South Rim but adding on a helicopter trip whilst there, is expensive and as others have said, is at the expense of being on the ground.
From others who have done this, did you think the expense (both money and time on the ground) was worth including the helicopter trip as well?
