    The windows on the helicopter open to allow for clearer pictures as well as a little fresh air while you move across the Grand Canyon. 4 people fit inside the helicopter comfortably and one more passenger sits in the front seat with the pilot.

    Helicopter or Motorcycle Tour of the Grand Canyon?

    Tough question but if you have the opportunity I would do both. However, from high above you can get a remarkable view of everything. From the motorcycle you feel the wind, you hear the engine and you see things right at eye level.

    I personally really enjoy riding the motorcycle so I would choose the bike tour of the Grand Canyon. However, the helicopter is just as much fun so I would probably take my family on the helicopter.

    How do you like that, no answer, choose both!
