The experience (grand canyon bus/helicopter tour) was great and the ease of booking was good too.
I was honestly quite impressed with how the ride was. My friend had been on the same one before and begged me to go with him (he's quite the adrenaline junkie). I expected just a plain ride and then getting to see the Grand Canyon and then we'd be back, but it was so much more than that! The pilot really made the trip memorable and fun with his commentary and stuff! He was quite funny! My friend also enjoyed the second trip way more than the first one. I guess it depends on who your pilot is!
This made for a great road trip, combined with a helicopter ride. A bit pricey for a road trip, but well worth the price if you're looking for an adventurous day
