Best I ever did. A different world.At sunset best time of the day. Good pilot. Landing for drink, snack and little walk. Was top. Enjoyed it so much. Thanks!
Fantastic tour and Sundance helicopters were super professional and helpful. I would say to definitely go at sunset if you can as the views of the strip are great on the way back. A not to be missed experience.
I cant describe how beautiful this ride was! Amazing tour inside the Grand Canyon and the return at sunset time was an amazing and different experience! Kids loved it! Our pilot, Cade , really cool guy from Utah showed the best of the area and the soundtrack was pur rock! Tottaly recommended! Very good investment to all the family!
Amazing trip. Limo picked us up exactly on-time from the hotel and delivered us smoothly to the airport. Check-in was quick and efficient, very pleasant staff. The helicopter trip itself was awesome, stunning scenery and our pilot Sam gave us interesting commentary throughout the whole journey. Even though it was a very windy day, the whole ride was smooth and comfortable. Arriving back in Vegas with the strip lit up is truly a sight to behold. Would recommend this to everyone, it will be the highlight of any Vegas vacation. If I had to find a negative, it would be that the limo organisation for the return transport to your hotel is a little messy, but this is really a small point considering the overall tour.
Absolutely amazing experience! Highly recommend this tour. Nice new looking high tech helicopters and good reception / check-in area gives you a feeling that safety is taken seriously. We had a great pilot who chatted to us in the air through the headphones and occasional recorded narration was also interesting. Some great pieces of music on take-off and landing added to the emotion but I will not spoil the surprise by telling you too much here - Nice little champagne toast and sandwich based picnic in the Canyon. We had plenty of time for questions and pictures before heading back for a sunset flight over the Vegas strip. Awesome! Not cheap, but we thought was worth every penny! Thanks Sundance helicopters!
I cant tell you how amazing the entire experience was. They picked us up in a limo - we were the first pick up so we picked up 3 other couples. Then we arrived at the heliport, and they were well organized there. They put us in our groups and they explained everything. then we boarded and flew out. We are so happy that we paid extra to land in the canyon and to go at sunset - though the food was truly picnic food and not my style. The colors of the sunset splashing on the canyon walls was truly breathtaking and our pilot was so good at giving us the history that I have to say this is a must do tour - and the flyby of downtown Vegas at dusk? Worth it!
