BJ was our guide and he was fantastic. Made the trip humorous and enjoyable. Breathtaking views and a smooth ride. Worth every penny!
An awesome mixture between a roller coaster ride and a sightseeing trip! Although it is quite pricey, it is really worth it. The feeling you have when you fly over the edge into the canyon is indescribable. Our pilot told us plenty of information about the Grand Canyon. Fortunately, we could sit on the first row so that we had a great 180° view, which is not possible from the rear seats. It was one of the best experiences of our lives.
The helicopter ride was Awesome!! The pilot was wonderful, the only thing I wish was that we could have blocked out the voices of the other people on the flight. They spoke in Italian and were very excited so were we, but they didn't stop talking. We couldn't hear the pilot. We watch it on mute.
It was great! All very organized, very professional pilot. And the view of Canyon totally amazing!! Must do!
Certainly a MUST do ! Once in a lifetiime experience ! Nice welkome. Friendly people. Great pilot.
Hope to be able to do this again
Highly professional and fantastic experience. We highly recommend using this tour company as they provided an exceptional tour over the Grand Canyon with views that cannot be rivaled from the ground.
This was our first helicopter ride and our final view of the canyon after spending three days exploring the trails on foot. The flight with our pilot, Rivers, was smooth and exhilarating. Rivers' commentary was informative as well as humorous. He put us at ease right from the start and made sure that we were shown the sights but don't expect to dive into the canyon though. The flight path is strictly controlled to keep all aircraft safe and to avoid any disturbance within the National Park. Even so, the view is always spectacular. And don't forget the ground staff - they were welcoming and cheerful - all part of the excellent service.
It was GREAT!! Especially our Guide, Rivers!! Such a fun, up close and personal experience. :)
This flight was just amazing! Going over the rim for the first time was a real 'wow' event and the whole trip was memorable and exciting. Our pilot, Vern, was first class, very friendly and informative. Would recommend this trip to anyone.
The flight was breathtaking. When you first go over the edge of the canyon it is definitely a WOW moment. The pilot was informative and very pleasant. It's the only way to see the Grand Canyon properly.
It was breathtaking to say the least. In one spectacular hour I got to do two things I've always wanted to; see the Grand Canyon and fly in a helicopter. Worth every cent and I would do it again in a heartbeat. So get out there folks and start enjoying the life you were meant to and empty that bucket list. This was an inspiring beginning. I highly recommend taking this once in a lifetime experience. The pilot (Thomas) was knowledgeable and fun. Everyone at the tour company was awesome.
For me this was a "bucket list" thing to do, take a ride in a helicopter and it was everything I thought it would be. The pilot was excellent, had a good sense of humor and was very informative. The weather, unfortunately, was overcast but can't help that. Both my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So far, it is the highlight of our trip.
A bit pricey and they get you for extra fuel surcharge which was unexpected. BUT, worth it anyway
