The only way to see the Grand Canyon is from the air so I would highly recommend booking a helicopter flight to see an experience it.

We flew the "Majestic" package. It is a 25-30 minute flight out of Tusuyan Arizona across the canyon to the north rim and back. Would do it again but would request a front seat next time.
