There is no doubt that a Grand Canyon helicopter tour is going to leave an impression on anybody that finds themselves going on one because this particular natural wonder looks amazing in photographs, but it is even better in the air. The good news is that there are a number of companies based in and around the area that provide these tours, but what kind of things should you look out for before going ahead and booking?
To begin with you are going to want to know exactly how long the flight is going to last and also where you will be going as it does vary not only between companies, but between flights on offer from the one firm. Clearly the longer the flight the more it will cost you, but with regard to where you will be going the main thing is to ask about the rims you will be visiting as each company must apply for a licence to get to a certain area and some companies are limited in what they can show you.
Another thing you are advised to do is check that they do offer a low-level tour because this is the best way to experience the sheer size of the canyon as you do need to get as close to it as possible to see how rough and imposing it actually is. Do also try to find out if they can take you to Hoover Dam at the same time as this is also rather impressive as the scale of it really does have to be seen to be believed.
