Best time of day for a Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone. My sister and I leave next Thursday the 23rd for our Grand Canyon adventure and she still is totally in the dark! Has no clue she's going! Thank god it's happening soon because I don't know how much longer we can keep her from finding out and it's getting exhausting!

I am trying to arrange a helicopter tour and have no idea if one time of day is better than the other. Does anyone who has done this have suggestions? I'm considering using Papillon, and welcome any rants or raves about the company too. Or if you have other tour operator suggestions...

Here are the times suggested on their site.

7:00 - 8:00 AM

9:45 - 10:45 AM

12:30 - 1:30 PM

3:15 - 4:15 PM

6:00 PM

I was thinking the 3:00 would have nice dramatic light - better for photos. Thanks!
