The Grand Canyon is huge, so it's a good way to see this area by a helicopter. Luckily, I had such an exciting tour. I started touring at the Grand Canyon National Airport, located in Tusayan.
When I got into my helicopter, I got a security briefing and got a small vest and a headset. And then I sat in the seat and the helicopter was ready to fly. Because this was the first time I was on a helicopter, I was a little scared. But when it took off, I realized it was very safe, and it felt relaxed.
My helicopter was an ECO-star. Thanks to the tourist glass, it provides tourists with a full idea of the whole area. I sat in a leather seat and I had to say it was really comfortable. The helicopter flew and did not tremble silently, so I could concentrate on dramatic beauty. It seemed to me that I took a bird's eye out of the bubble from the canyon.
There were two kinds of tours, one of which is the Canyon Dancer tour and the other is The Canyon Spirit. The former one will take you through the Kalibaba National Forest, the Colorado River and the northern edge. But I think later is more interesting. The tourist can experience the formation and depth of the canyon. Finally I knew how deep the canyon was. I spent 45 minutes before this great trip.
Our pilot was also our guide and was informative. He answered our questions and led us to see the formation. I was surprised to see that some trees alternate under the sunlight and the red earth makes Canyon an amazing place. I still photographed and wanted to remember the beautiful scenery forever.
After landing, I bought a DVD of our flight and a photo of our group. They were witnesses of my whole journey. There were also many souvenirs with the Grand Canyon logo, such as sweatshirts, hats and T-shirts. I bought my hat and intended to send it to my father. This short trip was great.
