    Amazing views that very few people are able to see! Our pilot was very knowledgeable on the landscape and area, I would highly recommend doing this. The folks that helped were very respectful before and after the flight, and they also give you a complimentary beer upon returning back to the office!

    Seeing Sedona from the sky
    chris, Sep 2023
    We had an amazing helicopter tour! Starting with the staff greeting and preparing us for the flight to the amazing and knowledgeable pilot, Ken. The only negative thing to mention is that the trip had to end. Lol. Scenery in Sedona is breath-taking and utterly stunning. Would definitely use this company again.

    Magical
    James_C, Apr 2023
    Dan was great getting us checked in and answered many questions we had patiently. The pilot, Jake was well versed in the area’s landscape-pointing out and naming all the buttes and caverns. To see Sedona from above was magical! My wife and I highly recommend this tour!
    A must do in Sedona.

    The staff were friendly and excited for us to take our first helicopter ride. Both pilots were amazing during our flight and ensured we knew what we were seeing and were comfortable with the whole process. Would totally recommend this company for a tour of the red rocks around Sedona!
