One of the most exciting ways to see the Grand Canyon by air is on a Grand Canyon helicopter tour. Helicopter tours are allowed to fly approximately 1000 feet lower than the airplane tours, but due to the vastness of the Canyon, it’s hard to say which is better. Grand Canyon helicopter tours are available in a couple different helicopters. One is the Bell helicopter, which is choice because of the large windows. Another is the Eco-Star helicopter which has “quiet technology” meaning less noise with the enclosed rear rotor. Air tours aboard the helicopters have narration in multiple languages.
