    Hi Sarah, I’ve been told by friends that the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon is a must! :)

    Budget for all of them then take it day by day. The majority of people on my tour did most of the optionals.

    Hey check out my review from April
    I think they’ve changed a little just before I did it. E.g they don’t do a Harbour cruise anymore. I did almost everything because to be honest there’s not always a lot to do if you don’t. Exceptions are the hot air ballooning because not doing it means a sleep in and bike tour in the Grand Canyon because you have heaps to do there anyway. Top 3 for me, helicopter ride (do the longer one, totally worth it, I’ll
    Post photos if you want), speed boat tour (just really fun) and sea world and jeep tour a tie!
