The most memorable would be that I was able to share this experience with my 2 daughters. The pilot was so great. The employees were so amazing. To be able to see in person what I see in pictures is by far no comparison.

Really BAD Customer service

The guy at the desk at Zion helicoptor should seek other occupation, we have never met such an unfriendly person working in Services. The flight and pilot was top quality, and therefore they get the 2 stars.
Amazing Family Adventure

I recently had the pleasure of taking my family on a helicopter ride at Zion National Park, and it was an experience we will never forget. The opportunity to view the park's stunning natural beauty from above was breathtaking. We were fortunate to have Jordon as our pilot, who not only ensured our safety but also made the ride even more memorable with his wealth of knowledge about the park.
Fantastic experience!!

Flexibility is key when booking this tour as they need the right number of people and weight to take off. I was fortunate enough to join another group as a solo traveler and was upgraded as a result so it was win win for me but my flight time changed twice. This was a fantastic experience and the pilot was very knowledgeable and polite. There is opportunity for some amazing photography and to see areas of the park most are not able to see either by physical limitations or closed to the public areas.
Birds Eye view of Zion.
Stephan_T, Mar 2023
Spectacular views and the pilot pointed out several interesting sites and explained the landscape in detail. The history of the area also covered during the tour.

This was a birthday present for my wife ... she loved it! Thank you for a great experience! The heliport, staff and equipment were all top shelf.
Good experience
Angela_S, Sep 2021
Great experience. A bit mis advertised. It was not 55 miles long. We were only in the air about 30 min. But while in the air it was great
Response from Host, Sep 2021
Thank you for the positive review, however, the flight is in fact 55 miles we have GPS data from your flight to support this if you wish to see the flight path we can email it to you.
Unforgettable experience.

Thank you Josh for choosing to fly with us and taking the time to review your experience. It was our pleasure meeting you and hopefully, you can come back to fly with us again in the future.

Was disappointed in the whole trip we just zig zagged through the hills close to the helipad I thought we would get closer to the park I guess my mistake for lack of research and asking questions I’ve been on many helicopter tours similar to this one like Grand Canyon and Mt Rushmore which gave you amazing sights that were unforgettable Wouldn’t recommend You get better views driving through the park. Save your money!!
Response from Host, May 2021
Dear Sara and Jeremy, we regret that you did not enjoy your helicopter tour. The 55 mile Tour is our most popular flight and the majority of our guests report a fantastic experience. Your flight route included highlights such as the Kolob Canyons, Red Butte, looking into the West Side of the Zion National Park. The flight then took you along the south side of Zion National Park and the adjoining Cannan Mountain Wilderness area featuring 2000 foot sheer cliff faces and multiple colored rock formations of sandstone and natural stone arches. We have added a flight map to the images section on Viator's website so that readers of this review can see the extent of the tour and the distance traveled from the helicopter pad.

From $289.00
