Helicopter tours are a traveler favorite.Vegas helicopters only go to the West Rim.Tusayan helicopters only do the South Rim and are not permitted to fly below the rim.
On the topic of landing tours,these kinds of tours are only out of Vegas.There's also a trip that lands on the top of the rim and comes with tickets to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
The rafting tours that I recommend are 1-day and feature no white water rapids.I like these trips because they are affordable and can be done by kids as young as 4 years of age.
The South Rim has two such rafting trips.It departs from Tusayan and goes to the base of Glen Canyon Dam where all 19-passenger pontoon rafts are docked.
There are number of excellent bus tours that go from Las Vegas to the West Rim and the South Rim of the National Park.The most popular one is the South Rim trip.
The deluxe version of the 1-day float tour starts with an airplane ride from Tusayan to Page.You hop a Jeep and do a 4x4 tour of Antelope Canyon(a/k/a slot canyons).You go to the Dam,board a raft and set course down the Colorado River to historic Lee's Ferry.
Make sure you purchase your tour on the Internet on a secure website.Because that's where the best tour deals are to be had,I recommend the Web.I understand how exciting it is to get a great price,but always remember to complete your transaction online--it's the only surefire way to lock in special Web-only pricing.
Day trips range from helicopter rides to 1-day rafting tours and all are guaranteed to make your stay at the National Park a memorable one.
West Rim bus tours are an equally great value and come with many side trips.There's the one that includes a helicopter ride to the bottom with a boat ride down the Colorado.

Of course,Grand Canyon tours are popular,with helicopter rides in particular selling out.I recommend you book them at least a week in advance if you want to make sure you get seats on any of these fine trips(including airplane tours).
