This is without doubt the best way to see the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas Strip. From start to finish the customer service of this company was top notch and our pilot Chris was friendly and informative. We landed in the Canyon for a picnic and had great views of the Colorado River. The tour took approx... More

I had an awesome time, got a great view of Sin City as well as the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. It's the best way to see Vegas. Could have spent a bit more time in the canyon but all in all a good experience

We started the helicopter ride and it was fantastic. Unfortunately after the hoover dam we noticed a sand storm. We were told it was too dangerous to land in the canyon and had to turn round. When we landed we offered a full refund by the very hard working staff. The level of service offered was top notch and the... More

My husband and I did the air only helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon and it was exactly as we expected. The shuttle was on time and not over crowded (only us and one other couple in a limo) the wait at the airport was minimal and the staff was very friendly. We lucked out as there was a mother... More

The music was really cool. Miguel our pilot was friendly and professional. The picnic meal was in a little cane lunch box which was presented well.... More

This is an excellent tour. The music they play is great, but the tour narration is really old and lame. Riding in the helicopter is awesome. They did offer me an upgrade for $20 to a "better helicopter with Bose speakers and cushioned seats," which I thought was a little sleazy. The breakfast/brunch was all carbs--croissant, muffin, energy bar, orange... More

Thank You for your comments. We do agree, we would rather collect our passengers at the main entrance of their hotels, however it is the individual hotel/owners discretion to designate what happens on their properties. We are glad to hear you enjoyed you tour. Frances M. Customer Experience Agent More
