Everyone was very nice and accommodating. The pilot was great, knowledgeable, and entertaining. The views were spectacular. Stopping at the gift shop/snack area was also very nice. We were able to purchase some very nice handmade items. The only downside, we had to go back. It was a beautiful adventure, we waited years to do. It really was worth every penny spent. Thanks for the memories!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Amazing experience and very well organised. The helicopter company staff were amazing and the pilot was very interesting. If, like us, time was at a premium, then this trip lasts half a day rather than the 4 hours one way driving to the Grand Canyon. The Helipcoptor was modern and very smooth. Amazing views!
