Super nice and competent staff, we felt very well taken care of throughout and will always keep the helicopter flight in great memories. After the flight there was the opportunity to take pictures in front of the helicopter. You could also buy professional pictures and / or a video of the flight.

Yes...a helicopter ride to view the Grand Canyon is a pricey line item to the vacation budget, but SO worth it. The only way to truly take in and appreciate its beauty is from the air. Our Maverick pilot was knowledgable and made us feel very comfortable and safe! We loved every second and highly recommend this experience as a must.

What a wonderful tour! I was scared to death to fly and this was smoother and way more comfortable than any commercial flight I’ve taken. The pilot was super nice and informative. The tour route was perfect and we saw everything. I absolutely loved it and they far exceeded my expectations!
