How To Get To The Departure Site
Anthony_S
, Jul 2022
The overall Tour was incredible, and highly recommend it to any/everyone. Though, if you're not from the area and/or taking this tour for the first time, it is very confusing on how to get to the departure site. My kids and I were staying in Grand Canyon Village, booked a 9am helicopter tour weeks prior, and were under the impression that the departure site was nearby (either within walking distance or the helicopter company would provide a round-trip shuttle). To our dismay, we learned that we need to take the free (Grand Canyon Village-provided) Purple shuttle 10 miles south of Grand Canyon Village to the "Grand Canyon National Park Airport" located in a town called Tusayan. We realized this the day before the tour (not a big deal - at least we thought so). We read the (Grand Canyon Village-provided) map and it said the Purple shuttle runs every 20 minutes starting at 8am from IMAX. We thought IMAX was located in the Grand Canyon Village Visitor Center since there was a similar movie-like attraction there (and is also the main hub for all of the shuttles 'Red, Blue, Orange and Purple'). We arrived at the Canyon Village Visitor Center by 7:55am, only to read the sign "there" that (more clearly states), the Purple shuttle arrives at the Visitor Center by 8:30am "coming" from the town of Tusayan (which again, is the city the helicopter company operates from and is the departure site). Obliviously this didn't work, as it would have made us late for our tour. So we tried Uber, but Uber does not provide service in that area. We called the helicopter company to let them know of our situation and ask if they could pick us up. They said no (to picking us up) and instructed us to take the Purple shuttle once it arrives, and since we'd arrive at the departure site by 8:50am (still ahead of the 9am departure time), they would see if they can hold the helicopter. Once we boarded the Purple shuttle, we then learned the the Purple shuttle doesn't take you directly to Grand Canyon National Park Airport (the departure site). Rather, it drops you off at the Best Western Hotel which is a quarter mile from the departure site. As soon as we were dropped off, we sprinted through a local trail that takes you to the departure site. We arrived by 8:50am (an incredible feat unto itself), only to be told that we were late, and had to be bumped to a later time that day. Moral of the story, arrange for a local TAXI CAB to take you to Grand Canyon National Park Airport (if you have no other means of transportation). My additional two cents: it would be nice if this was all spelled-out once you book the tour with the helicopter company OR (novel idea), the helicopter company provided round-trip transportation - after all...the Customer and the helicopter company are there for the same reason.

I highly recommend this trip. Seeing the canyon from land is an amazing experience. We were able to take the helicopter after the land experience and it gave such a different perspective. Our guides for both experiences were engaging and knowledgeable. I will never forget approaching the canyon via helicopter. Seeing both the south and north canyons have such a great contrast.

Did this tour a few years ago, back in 2012 and it was an amazing ride and the pilot was awesome. You could tell that he loved his job and had a great time doing it. I can’t say the same thing with my most recent trip. The ride was not exciting nor was the pilot. It was disappointing.

I want to stress that all pilots/operators/staff were very professional. The hummer tour was disappointing. I had expected that we would have more narrative of the sites, instead it ended up being more of a shuttle to a couple of places along the rim.
