It was awesome! Check in was a breeze. Chris our pilot was great. At all times he was informative and let us know what was happening and what to expect. Sitting at the side window gave us a magnificent view. The Grand Canyon is one thing on your bucket list that needs to be ticked.

I had the front seat so the view was perfect. Pilot was friendly and informative. Weather was perfect. Only thing I would change was getting a little lower/closer....we stayed very high. Still Highly recommend this trip.

If you are visiting the Grand Canyon, this is a must tour! It is expensive, but very worth every penny. To fly above this magnificent wonder of nature is like nothing that can be described in words or photos. Booking was easy, navigation to the airport is quick and the tour company is very friendly and professional. We did a 22 day road trip through the National/State parks of CO, SD, WY, UT, AZ, and saw sooo many beautiful parks and sites-this however, was the highlight of the trip. You won't remember how much you paid for this trip in a year, but you will have the experience of a lifetime that you will never forget. :

No other way to really see the canyon. Pilot did a great job felt safe and at ease the entire flight.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

We walked the Grand Canyon prior to taking the tour and there is no comparison to being able to see it from the helicopter. The pilot was very informative and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2018

Absolutely outstanding way to see the majesty and incredible size of the Grand Canyon. Highly recommended. Eric was our pilot, shared great information about the geology, development, and size of the canyon. The weather was perfect and the flight, a bit bumpy at first, smoothed out over the canyon. My daughter was in the front row and me in the back. Views mostly unobstructed, even from the back. I can't imagine a better was to see the GC for the first time.

Our pilot spent an extra 15 minutes in the canyon with us making it over an hour. He was fabulous and made sure we saw, photographed and video taped all the good stuff! I would highly recommend them!

Unfortunately on the day of our scheduled flight it was very windy. We were advised that we would be unable to take the 45 minute flight due to safety reasons. Either we could come back tomorrow, which wasn't an option for us as we were leaving Arizona then, or we may be able to take the 25 minute flight if the returning pilot okays this. Fortunately we were able to take the 25 minute flight.
The views from the helicopter were spectacular to say the least. The pilot was very imformative with his commentary throughout the flight.
If you are considering whether or not to do this flight, as I was, I would highly recommend you do as you will not be disappointed.
Were advised by the staff there to inform Viator of the alteration to our booking and apply for a refund of the difference between the 45 and 25 minute flights, which we did. This process took a while to complete but was worth it as Viator refunded us the difference for which we were grateful for.
