Owner description: The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. 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!

My two young sons and I took a tour and loved it. The pilot made it especially fun for my boys as they talked back and forth and had a fun time and learning experience. I would definitely recommend it for families. And the price seemed reasonable and a good value.

I plan to visit Royal Gorge Bridge and take a route railroad. After searching for a while, the Helitours website popped up, I read all information and found out that this much be better than railroad. A pilot, Will, was so kind. He offered us a special price for our family. Looking the bridge from the top view is unbelievable.... More

There's no other way to see this view of the gorge and bridge. They are very reasonably priced and the ride is thrilling. The pilot was very nice and confident. It was my first time and I was scared and thrilled at the same time. This is a view of the gorge like no other. You can do a short... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of riding with Eli over the gorge and the ride was breathtaking! It's evident that Eli takes pride in and enjoys his job and that makes the customer's experience that much more pleasurable. He took us on some fast turns and dives that were better than any roller coaster I've ever ridden! We... More

What a wonderful experience this was, from the rustic feel of the building to the most polite and kind person behind the counter I've ever met: and thats not mentioning the amazing helicopter ride. Well worth the time and money for a great experience that was good for all ages. Ask to have the doors taken off the helicopter if... More

This was the first helicopter ride of our lives, but it certainly won't be the last! Our pilot, Will, was awesome- first making us feel comfortable and safe, then pointing out all the interesting details of the area during our flight. Our only regret was that we didn't book a longer tour, but we received a Thank You email from... More
