Owner description: 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.

The views are hard to match on any other tour I've been on. It's a great tour and the flight coming back over the strip was a nice bonus. I didn't care about the lunch. You are in the air about 35 minutes each way and in the canyon for 35 minutes or so. It's a great experience.

We bought the Sunset Escape tour and were picked up on time at out hotel in a fancy limo. Staff was courteous and friendly at the airport office. The flight started about 15min late. This was our first time in an helicopter and we were very excited about it! When flying over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon... More

We are a family of 4 with 2 small children (aged 1 & 3). We weren't sure whether the extra cost of having a picnic landing would be worth it - but boy were we happy we went ahead. it was certainly the best experience for our family out of our 4 week USA holiday. An exciting way to see... More

Sundance Helicopter is a class act. We originally had booked our tour several days before our trip to Las Vegas. The weather forecast for our scheduled tour date was cloudy. Therefore, we called Sundance two days before our scheduled tour and asked if we could change the tour date. Sundance was able to change our date and the day of... More

Stunning views. Great, friendly, knowlegeable pilots Perfect amount of time too Trip back is almost more beautiful than the trip there! My favorite part is jamming out to the tunes in the chopper because I can belt out lyrics and no one else can hear me because its super loud and were all wearing headphones.

This company was very organised. We were picked up from our hotel by a stretch limousine and taken to Sundance. Everyone was processed so quickly and efficiently. The most amazing flight over the Hoover Dam and down into the canyon for a champagne lunch. The meal was excellent and served in the most incredible place on earth. We then flew... More

Our Sundance Helicopter Sunset Grand Canyon Tour on Sunday 7th December 2014 was without any doubt the best ever vacation trip we have experienced. The original afternoon flight for the Friday was cancelled due to really bad visibility and to be far Sundance made the correct decision, however they immediately re-scheduled us for the Sunday Sunset flight and oh boy...

What a great day. Landed in the Grand Canyon on Thanksgiving. Everything run smooth from limo pick up to drop off. Pilot Ryan was fabulous with all the info required. Champagne lunch in the canyon was lovely. Great views and would definitely do again.
