Both the helicopter tour and the sunset hummer tour were amazing! This was our first visit to the Grand Canyon and to experience our very first views from the helicopter was incredibly beautiful and awe inspiring!!! Chills and a lump in my throat… We really appreciated how enormous the canyon is. Our only regret was that we didn’t book an hour tour! Both our pilot and hummer driver were very informative and fun! ! Would definitely recommend this wonderful adventure.

We enjoyed the ride over the South and North Rims. A truly different perspective than walking along the rim. We were so excited to have this experience.
Wonderful

The awe and wonder of the view from above and what great power it took to move the earth in such a way….God, He is the source of that power. Thank you for the experience and thanks to the skills of the pilot.
Amazing incredible views
Kimberly_S, Jul 2023
The views were incredible of the Grand Canyon and the National Forest. Even though my kids feel asleep during the ride, my husband and I very much enjoyed the helicopter tour and pilot guide. 10/10, it was a once in a lifetime experience that we are so glad we did. The tour requests that you arrive 30 minutes prior to your time of departure. However, after arriving first for our tour time, we proceeded to wait an additional 30-45 minutes after our scheduled time to finally board the helicopter. Other groups came and completed their tours before we finally took off. This was very frustrating, especially having small chip with us who were getting impatient.
Great time

The entire experience was awesome. From Check in to Exit
Jeff_A, May 2023
First, we felt very safe as this was an organized process to get on the flight. Second, the boarding was done in a fast was with a full explanation of what we needed to do. This is hard to do over the sound of the helicopter. The flight was awesome and we got to see the beauty of the canyon from above. Finally, at the finish, we were unloaded again in a safe and organized fashion. Thanks for a great experience.

I can’t remember the pilots name, but he was so nice and funny. The music that was playing was perfect for the tour.. All 4 of us were just overwhelmed by the beauty of the canyon. Everyone who goes the GC should this helicopter tour. Thank you for a job well done!!!

Thoroughly disappointed!
Linda_L, May 2023
I am a professional photographer. I was placed in seat six of the red helicopter. I saw none of the center of the canyon; only the walls. I asked if the pilot could turn or go over the center and he said no. I was in tears by landing and for hours afterwards. For about $280 I only saw the walls. I believe that ALL passengers have some time to view the center.
