Depart from the Phoenix/Scottsdale area aboard a Detours Arizona van or shuttle. You will climb the Sonoran Desert filled with native saguaro cactus. Enjoy a 1 hour stop at Williams, Arizona to stretch your legs. Spend approximately 3 hours at the Grand Canyon National Park with the opportunity to walk the rim trail and shop. While in the Grand Canyon, explore a 30 mile section of road that winds along the rim of the canyon, showcasing the best rim views and history along the way. At the Grand Canyon National Park, you will board an Eco Star EC-130 helicopter for a 45-50 minute aerial tour over the Grand Canyon. Your flight will include views of the Kaibab National Forest, the North Rim, and eastern end of the canyon. You will follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River, enjoying views of the Painted Desert and Desert View Watchtower in the distance. See Marble Canyon and Point Imperial and climb above the North Rim. Head south through the Dragon's Corridor (deepest, widest point in the canyon) and then leave the Grand Canyon, flying over the South Rim back to the airport. Board the Detours shuttle for a ride back to Phoenix/Scottsdale with views of the Navajo Nation and Painted Desert, and a stop at the authentic Cameron Navajo trading post.
