They want there:

There is an airport in Tusayan where there are sightseeing flights by helicopter and plane. The company offers overflight circuits of various lengths. I recommend visiting the Grand Canyon IMAX, where they watch a video about the Grand Canyon and the footage it offers is a great price but $ 10. A short helicopter flight costs $ 200. I can only recommend it for those who have never flown a helicopter, it is an experience in itself. It is necessary to define this all morning and maybe a piece in the afternoon, because the queues for flights are longer.

There is an airport in Tusayan where there are sightseeing flights by helicopter and plane. The company offers overflight circuits of various lengths. I recommend visiting the Grand Canyon IMAX, where they watch a video about the Grand Canyon and the footage it offers is a great price but $ 10. A short helicopter flight costs $ 200. I can only recommend it for those who have never flown a helicopter, it is an experience in itself. It is necessary to define this all morning and maybe a piece in the afternoon, because the queues for flights are longer. You need to be patient. It is not possible to order a seat in flight. When buying a ticket, they consider everyone so that they can distribute the weight to the helicopter. This helicopter can accommodate 6 people. It is a wonderful spectacle above the deepest canyon in the world. Already from the flight one sees what is not on land and it is the seabed, which is today at an altitude of 2100 meters above sea level. so it cuts deeper and deeper.

On the edge of the Canyon

Here it is beautiful to see what used to be the bottom of the sea and where it is today.

Suddenly there is a 2km deep abyss below us.

Beautiful coloring

Both from the ground and from the air, the individual color of the canyon can be seen.
