Viator Traveler's Reviews

A great experience! The pilot was very knowledgable and answered any questions. It was amazing to see the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River from the helicopter! A very different experience than seeing it from the ground. We loved the small size of the group as that made it more comfortable and interactive.
We've recommended this tour to all of our friends.
Most incredible experience I have had in a long time. Everything was perfect, from take-off to landing. There is literally no bad seat in the helicopter, the ride was super smooth and the pilot, Sam, was fantastic. We left a little later than expected only because Sam wanted us to catch the sun setting on the way back. Which we did, and the view of the whole tour was amazing. I highly recommend doing this tour.
This helicopter flight with Sundance Helicopters should not be missed. The staff went out of their way to help us. The staff were polite and efficient.
The pilot was friendly informative and extremely professional. We felt very save. An experience of a life time. Don't miss Sundance helicopters.
