Founded in 1985, Sundance Helicopters operates the largest and most experienced helicopter company in Las Vegas. Sundance offers two types of aircraft. Choose the the newer EC-130 Ecostar if you desire more legroom and comfort. Sundance also offers the still classy A-Star for the more economy minded. Featuring daily fully narrated (foreign languages available) Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours, many with landings on the canyon floor! We carry more than 160,000 customers safely each year creating memories to last a lifetime. All of our tours originate from Las Vegas so no long transfers to non Las Vegas airports and true limousine transfers help make the Sundance experience extra special for you, your family, friends or special guest.

Everything about Sundance Helicopters is amazing. Even the website itself is very informative and it easy to navigate thru the different packages available. The facility is very clean and there is plenty of seating just in case you arrive early. There is also a coffee station available for the early birds that book a morning tour! All of the staff...

We choose the GRAND VOYAGER EXCLUSIVE trip. From the limo pick-up, the friendly check in girls, Drew the pilot, the river cruise and then seeing three stops at West Rim we had a great day. Breakfast in the sun at Eagle Point was fresh and tasty. We had plenty of time to enjoy the views and the trip home over... More

I can't begin to tell you how amazing this tour was from start to finish. We got picked up in a limo and taken to the helipad.

Hello Chaplaa83. Thank you for sharing your experience with us. I agree with your thoughts on the views of the Canyon. There really is nothing like seeing it from the air. Our champagne picnic is a popular tour and we are pleased you enjoyed your lunch. We are sorry you had to leave too but you are always welcome back!... More

We took the mid morning tour in order to enjoy the complimentary lunch provided as we had done this in the past. The limo pick up is great and checking in is easy just make sure you don't lie about your weight as they check you. The pilot was very friendly and knowledgeable and made the experience amazing with the... More

Thanks Paul for the nice words. Its true, weight does matter especially if you're travelling with a group (we don't want to split up parties). Hope to fly you again someday...perhaps for a 12-min city lights tour!? Take care. More

We visited the Grand Canyon for a champagne lunch and it was fabulous. Friends of ours had gone ;to the Grand Canyon a few years ago and said they spent hours on a bus. They are definitely envious.
