My wife and I had the pleasure of experiencing a breathtaking scenic flight tour of the Canyons in a helicopter. What we loved the most was the personalized commentary we received from our professional and experienced helicopter pilot and guide Tracy. And we could ask questions! It's rare talent to find both a skilled pilot AND one who is passionate and knowledgeable about the changing geographic landscapes and formations that we fly over. The helicopter flight was like no other flights that we experienced. The front seat provides an almost 180 degrees view of the front and it feels like flying through the aerial scenes of a sci-fi movie or Top Gun. Experiencing the canyons, rivers and arches from a bird's eye view is nothing like what you experience from witnessing it from a lookout points or hiking on ground level. There were moments we felt completely overwhelmed with wonder and awe at how majestic the landscape was, as our helicopter cut over the cliffs and circled over arches.

We had a wonderful experience in our 30-minute helicopter tour over Canyonlands. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Jon, our pilot, was very knowledgeable about the area, an excellent pilot, and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience when visiting Moab. This was a first helicopter ride for my husband and I. Our tour happened to take place on my birthday, due to reschedule because of extreme heat the day before, so the staff made it extra special with some non-alcoholic champagne before our flight - they really went the extra mile to make our experience unforgettable.

Took my 11-year-old and he loved it. It was his first time flying and Jon did a great job flying and explaining the features around Moab and the parks. If you've only flown on planes, helicopters are completely different and a great way to experience Utah.

We had an amazing time on our helicopter ride and will do it again. We were awestruck looking over the canyons, arches, hoodoos and the Colorado River. If you're tossing this tour around as an idea - do it!!

John was great, thanks for the great flight and info guide From the other 2 of the 4 J's on the flight Jay and Jerry
