Great communication and organization. Pilot was excellent and very knowledgeable. Would definitely do it again! If you want to see the grand canyon but want to avoid the extreme heat, this is a great alternative to hiking and the views are even better. I only put 4 stars because I was the only person wearing a mask in the group!

Great Grand Canyon Helicopter Experience

We were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness of the waiting area and the the overall building. The helicopter was in very nice condition; it sat 7 people rather comfortably. We had a very smooth ride to and back from the canyon with lots of history, stories and geographical explanations from our very competent pilot Jessie. We had a wonderful experience and would highly recommend this trip and felt that it represented good value for the money.

The whole excursion was amazing. The Pilot was very professional but still a great Guide, he shared all of the history about the land, Grand Canyon, and the People. A must see. This is the only way to see the Grand Canyon to appreciate the "Wonder." Well worth the money😊

I have never been in a Helicopter before so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was GREAT!! Our pilot was funny and the ride was amazing. Not only did we see the sights but our pilot gave us a little history lesson as well on the surrounding area. I would definitely do it again. Thank you for the experience, and the memories.

This excursion was expensive; however, my only requirement for visiting Las Vegas was that I must see the Hoover Dam and some of the Grand Canyon. So, for me, this was a once in a lifetime thing. And it was excellent! All passengers were picked up from our respective hotels (and dropped off afterwards, following a champagne toast). I was upgraded from an early morning air only flight to one that landed. I had never been so close to the Hoover Dam and the bypass bridge, and they are a sight to behold. The view from the air is amazing. Pictures do not do it justice. We visited the Hualapai Tribe's Skywalk, and I was surprised and ecstatic because the lines were very short on this particular day (7/19/21). My group was able to walk right up and only wait a short time to walk out on the glass. For me, it was a breathtaking experience that I will never forget. Ever since I had heard about the Skywalk, I have wanted to see it for myself, and I finally did! We also were able to view the Las Vegas strip upon returning to the city. I just found everything to be so great, and I am very happy that I put my fears aside and went on this tour!
