I loved this helicopter tour. I finally got a ride in a helicopter and it was even more cool then I thought it would be. The Grand Canyon was very neat to finally see. Brian was the pilot and after landing at gift shop, I talked to him about pilot stuff, because I would love to fly a helicopter at some point in my life. He put me in the front next to him for the flight back and explained the controls and gauges and let me listen in on the radio channel so I could here the communication that pilots do. Very cool. I definitely recommend this tour.
