Well worth the money! This was my first time seeing the Grand Canyon and first time flying in a helicopter. I will say, save your money on the Skywalk, bur do the other stops at the overlook area. Skywalk won't let you take your own pictures, so it's a long line waiting to get your picture took.

The Grand Canyon West Rim with Skywalk experience is superb. Gia our tour guide is very entertaining, knowledgeable, has a good sense of humor and the best photographer. Nelson is a smooth driver . Very nice and helpful. Overall experience is excellent.

We had a fantastic day. The tour itself was great and the tour guide, driver and food provided by sweet tours was first class. We really enjoyed our day and learned so much. Will definitely do again and highly recommend! Thank you

That's just what it was an experience I will never forget. That's a story I can for the rest of my life. Good job Giant and Nelson.

Gia is an absolutely amazing tour guide! And Nelson got us to our destination safely! Would definitely recommend this trip
