Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure! « less

I though that helicopters where rough riding. I had no idea it would be so smooth yet exciting. I think the pilot flies helicopters in his sleep, as every move was flawless and it seemed as if the chopper flew it self. We got a very informative tour. I had no clue how pretty the Royal Gorge was until we... More

Will is the pilot and he is an excellent one. He is safe and is interested in making customers happy. The helicopter is comfortable and safe and Will is very informative and a friendly guy. It was the highlight of the trip!

We went on the bridge tour as part of the 'Ultimate Package' through Royal Gorge Rafting and Zip-Line. The tour had phenomenal views of the Arkansas River and the bridge. Our pilot, Will, was very experienced and made the tour fun and adventurous, with some great banking and thorough knowledge of the gorge, bridge and history. I recommend making this... More

My husband and I had booked the Pikes Peak helicopter tour. When we arrived the weather going towards Pikes Peak looked very threatening with lightning in the forecast. Our pilot Will took us on a shorter ride which was so much fun! The setting sun on the Royal Gorge bridge was beautiful. We also got to see big horn sheep... More

I surprised my husband for our second anniversary with a flight over the gorge. We was so shocked when we pulled in, but he couldn't wipe the smile from his face. It was wonderful! Excellent pilot and staff. We did the $129.00 flight and absolutely loved it. My husband went on and on about it!

Our family did the bridge run and enjoyed every moment of it! If you are going to the Royal Gorge, there is no better way to see it than by helicopter. It was an amazing experience and definitely a must-do! One of our favorite parts of our vacation here in Colorado!

We took the Cripple Creek Pikes Peak Tour and loved every minute of it. The ride was very smooth, the scenery amazing and the pilot excellent. He gave us lots of information. We would definitely recommend getting the video although we wish it had audio. If we are ever in Colorado again we would definitely do it again.

My birthday was on July 8 and we of course had lots of options to celebrate here in the land of plenty. We came across this on a web search and are we ever glad we did. We opted for the 40 minute ride and, again, a huge home run. Will is a super nice guy and a great guide.... More
