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!

Want a bird's eye view of one of God's greatest creations? Take a helicopter tour over the Royal Gorge. We were both very pleased with our trip this past weekend. Could not have asked for a better time! Please give it a try. We will be telling all our friends about this "find." Happy flying!

This was great! The ride was really smooth and the pilot knew what he was doing. It is very relaxing. This is the best view of the gorge.

My husband, our kids--14,12,& 6, rode & had a blast!!! Pilot Eli was wonderful & informative!! We will be back next time. Holds only 4 people at a time--that would be the only set back if you have more than 4 people to ride at once. But I would highly recommend this to everyone!!!

We were here in May 2013 and my boys enjoyed it then, but now that they're a tad older, I think they loved it even more! My 13 year old was asking about going up again all the way from OK to CO!

This was our third time using helitours and will continue to go every chance we get. WE have never had a bad experience and can't wait until the next visit. We got the chance to ride in their newest helicopter this past week. I believe Eli said our flight was only the fourth group to ride in it. AMAZING GROUP... More

My 13 year old son and I took a Helitour over the Royal Gorge. It was a first for both of us and it was an unforgettable experience. The views you capture from high above and inside the gorge will leave you breathless. The pilot was very experienced, knowledgeable, and friendly. They also have a paint ball course on site... More

I am currently training towards my private license to fly Helicopters, and I thought this tour would be a great opportunity for my wife to see what it's like to be up in the air. She absolutely loved it. We rode with Will, and I will tell you this, he is a fantastic pilot. He took everything extremely serious -... More

After doing another gorge flight, I thought the day couldn't get any better...I was wrong!!! I got to play my first game of paintball moments after landing. They have an awesome course set up on the back part of the property!!! It was adults against kids!!! Total blast!! I would recommend trying a round!!!!
