We decided to fly by helicopter to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and chose this company. We are so pleased we did. There 3 of us and we were picked up at our hotel in Las Vegas at 5.10am and driven to Boulder City Airport. After a quick check in, a watch of a safety video and a trip... More

We drove to the Airport (it's several miles south of the park entrance) and after a brief wait boarded the new Eco-Helicopter with another couple, making 6 in all. Craig was the young and informative pilot; after flying over the scrub forest on the South Rim, you go over the edge -literally! We had a long flight (total almost 1... More

I highly recommend this as the best (and fastest) way to see the Canyon. The team at Papillon are friendly and offer a great experience. We landed for a champagne lunch and loved the time looking around and taking photos.

This was a fabulous way to see the Grand Cannon for the first time. It was worth every penny.... The staff was nice and the experience was safe.

I have just returned home to Sydney Australia from my 5 week US holiday. The highlight of my trip was the one hour experience with Papillon Helicopters. The staff were professional, helpful and made the event as exciting as you would expect. My pilot, Becky, kept me informed and relaxed. The ride cost me $270 US including taxes and was... More

The helicopter tour was fantastic. Not only the views but the hole experience. The music was a perfect match with the flight! It made it even more spectacular! We would recommend this to everyone.

Our Papillon helicoptor tour was fabulous! Best money we spent during our trip. Words cannot do justice to the views seen from the air, flying over the Canyon. Becky, our pilot, was so fun and put us at ease. Definitely recommend this tour!

First visit to the U.S.A. so Grand Canyon too, also first flight in a helicopter. An experience we would repeat in a moment and encourage others to as well. Having already spent two full days walking & on the bus routes around the Canyon, our finale was to be the flight through it on the third morning. Ignoring the exhilaration... More
