Fantastic Experience. Pilot was very knowledgeable and polite. May seem expensive compared to driving, however flying out from Las Vegas over amazing scenery including Hoover Dam and the Canyon Skywalk, then landing in the actual Grand Canyon for morning tea and returning before lunch was well worth it compared to an 8 eight hour drive one way. If you can fit it in your budget I highly recommend it
This was a great experience! Our pilot was very nice. The flight to the Grand Canyon is amazing! The picnic setting is so beautiful (snacks could be a little fancier) The only down side was the trip from and back to the hotel when we shared a medium bus that took an hour each way.
Fantastic. One of the highlights of our US trip. Highly recommended.
For me this was the very first helicopter flight I have been on and I absolutely loved it. The pilot would joke around and tell us interesting facts about the canyon and the places we flew over. The highlight for me was the landing into the canyon, getting so close to the rocks and making tight turns - it was sensational. I would say this tour is a must for anyone visiting Las Vegas
The idea of riding a helicopter always scared me and the idea of having our toddler with us was an even scarier thought. But our pilot put me at ease right away because the take off was very smooth and so was the entire flight. The flight was not at all boring -- Bitter Sweet Symphony was playing while we were approaching the Grand Canyon, which was pretty cool. You also get some trivia about the locations on the way. It was also quite quick (compared to actually driving to the Grand Canyon) so having a toddler with us wasn't even an issue. Our 17-month old loved everything about it. You obviously will get the best views of Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam and the bypass bridge. You will get to see the Skywalk and get flown into the depths of the west rim of the Grand Canyon where you will land on the bank of the Colorado River. The picnic was nice and the site was beautiful and serene so you feel close to nature. If you only have a few hours to spare in Vegas and want an absolutely unique experience this helicopter tour will give you the most for your money. It definitely was worth it for me.
Absolutely fantastic trip , couldn't recomend it any higher , professional courteous knowledgeable - well worth a 5 star rating
Best trip EVER!! It's worth every penny. I try to take a nice trip once a year but the helicopter ride that lands inside the Grand Canyon is an experience like no other. Definitely worth it!!
best day ever Danny our pilot was so great. Five stars doesn't come close.
It was a fantastic tour. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see the Grand Canyon up close.
Great day was had by the whole of our party. The helicopter ride was great, as was the view of the Canyon. Collection and return to the Hotel went smoothly and everything was dealt with professionally and politely. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
I am a nervous flyer but just loved this helicopter flight. It was a windy morning but didn't affect my enjoyment and I felt very safe on board. A chatty pilot gave a history of landmarks underneath us. Landing in the canyon was a definite highlight. The temperature inside the helicopter cabin was cool (air con )and I would suggest wearing a fleece/sweater, but once inside the canyon and walking about, not needed. This was an expensive tour but take a deep breathe and DO it !
The most exciting and breathtaking experience ever. The pilot is great at provided everyone the opportunity to sit in the front seat to experience the view from the front of the helicopter. It was just amazing.
This was the greatest experience ever to see the Grand Canyon up close and personal. We landed in the bluff and was provided champagne and a little picnic. We were able to explore and take photos of this beautiful land.
Danny was our helicopter pilot and he was excellent would definitely recommend, he was very informative and amusing. We were picked up from our hotel on time and actually took off on our tour early.
It was a wonderful experience for all of us. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the beautiful facility where the air strip is. Our pilot was very nice and personable. We took turns sitting in the front of the helicopter. The view from the air was amazing. It is definitely a recommended trip.
This was a 50th birthday present and it was definitely worth it. Awesome is truly the word to describe it. The rate was cheaper than going buying direct. I had to rebook because I was confirmed but was told the next day that someone booked a minute before me and I had to rebook. I wasn't too happy with that since the price was higher but not by much. Nonetheless, it was still worth it. ($688 for two plus another $90 for the Indian reservation fee of $45 ea. So we paid $800 for 2. Plus we bought the CD and photo combo and 2 hats for $111.) I would recommend this over the Skywalk if you're deciding which option. Six passengers accompanied the pilot. Seating is based on weight distribution. The pilot was great and did some good math so we all got a chance to sit in front. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, so I thought...but now the kids want to go!!
5 stars are not enough, an absolutely amazing experience! Everyone treated us exceptionally well, especially our pilot Kyle who made us feel like family. Thank you so much for the highlight of our vacation!
My 6 friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Even the pick up from the hotel to the airport was fun. The helicopter pilot was very knowledgeable as well as entertaining. The flying was very exciting and the Canyon was amazing. I didn't realise how good the trip was going to be. It's a must do if your in Vegas.
What a wonderful experience! Our family had a tremendous time, with memories and images to cherish of one our worlds' amazing and sacred locations! Our pilot Tony was super smooth and capably shared his deep knowledge and history of the surrounding areas we flew over! Don't hesitate to do this!
