Flight and views from the helicopter were amazing! Hummer tour is just the driving route through the park which you can do yourself, but what made it worth it was the guide. Ours was Trey and he was excellent! Knew how the formations were named, lives in the park and knows the local area. Trey made the whole experience much more enjoyable!

Helicopter ride was fantastic, don't be afraid of heights! You get how big and deep the canyon truly is.
Bucket List experience
mhalaflaca, Nov 2023
Excellent view of the Grand Canyon. Pilot was very informative and ride was smooth. Would have liked if the helicopter descended a little into the Grand Canyon. Excellent service upon arrival...very friendly staff.
Truly rewarding to our existence

It was a beautiful experience above the Canyons, very emotional and vulnerable. The overpowering Canyons make you feel very humble and acceptable to the nature we live in.
So much fun!
Kristen_H, Nov 2023
Kara was our pilot and she was awesome! We had three 18 year olds and two adults. It was such a great experience. We did the 25 minute Grand Canyon tour.
Awesome!
Jeroen_V, Oct 2023
The tour was awesome! Although we paid for the 25 min tour we got 45 min in the heli. The ground staff (big bold black guy) is not friendly so that’s why 4 stars out of 5. The pilot Dan (as I remember right) was really nice! He made my day.
Excellent
April_T, Oct 2023
Our pilot Kara, was super nice. Our hummer tour with Tyler was well worth the money. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. 10 out of 10
Great Experience
David_O, Jul 2023
The experience was amazing. The pilots and crew were very kind and knowledgeable. The sights were so beautiful. Thank You!
Would do it again
Edgar_P, Jul 2023
Great views. Little bit of turbulence from weather but adds to the experience and excitement. It would be awesome if they could fly into the canyon since they have TOP GUN music going in the back ground.
Best Tour so far

an unforgettable experience
ying_g, May 2023
I would recommend this helicopter experience to everyone who would like to experience the Grand Canyon in a special and holistic way. As my first helicopter experience, it was not stressful at all. All the services and tutorials made me feel safe and comfortable. During the journey, the pilot would drive through the Grand Canyon and fly the helicopter down to give us a clear view of the details of the Canyon. Besides, you would have a plenty of opportunity to take amazing photos both of yourself and the view.

It was an awesome tour and so beautiful. If you haven’t already done it you most definitely should do this. The guide was awesome and very knowledgeable
Very bad experience
Jonathan_G, Apr 2023
I did a google search: lasvegas helicopter tour and i found viator site that offered the grand canyon tour 25-30 min by helicopter. I didn't see the address where to go until paid. I looked on the site to see the adress 3568 airport in google map it referred me to the airport of Lasvegas where there is a helicopter compagny, i immediately though it was the right place. I went with my wife to the appointment the day of the excursion and there was nothing.. I am very disapointed to see that the address is the same in 2 different states that what is not indicated before reservation. I would like a refound for the inconenient situation i encountered with the lack of informtion on your site. I called viator and they told me that there is no refund possible because of the compagny policy. Is it possible to do something to help me with this bad situation.
Wonderful views and memories
