We used Home | Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters
They have several packages, we picked lunch on the Canyon floor. Six people plus the pilot makes for cramped quarters in the helicopter.
We flew over Hoover Dam and as you can see, the bridge was still under construction.

Been there then many times, but any more I would rather deal with the Texas July summer days over Vegas in July.

The highway to Grand Canyon is a great getaway and some nice camp grounds at the South Rim. If you'd like some info on other great sites to see around Grand send me a PM and we'll get you hooked up.
Most of all have FUN!!
This member is right on target! Good Info! Youroo!!

thank you again. Yes I think its going to be a little on the hot side. our son, wife and grand kids are going in July so we thought it would be a good chance to meet them down there. have a little holiday together and get a chance to see how it is to drive down there at the same time. in our home town by lake superior, a hot day is 20c .lol
