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. « less

We were originally scheduled to have the tour on a Monday, but Vegas decided to surprise us and flash flood. We ended up having to reschedule for the Wednesday and had no issues. I was under the impression that we would get to land in the Grand Canyon for a 15 minute opportunity to walk around and take photos, but... More

For my 30th birthday me and my boyfriend chose to do the helicopter ride from the strip to the canyon (we did the canyon by bus two years and was such a long day) and all I can say is wow! Picked up in a stretch limo and arrived at a really well organised set-up at Mccarran. Was wearing a... More

We were picked up by limo from our hotel and taken to the Sundance terminal at the airport to check in. we had to wait around for about 45 mins to an hour for our flight. It went by in no time though. Luckily we had one of the newest helicopters in the fleet and our pilot was so good... More

I booked our Grand Canyon Sunset Landing tour over three months in advance, and paid for an upgrade to the roomier, safer, EC-130 helicopter - which also has much more glass for better all around viewing. We made a special side trip to Las Vegas and got a hotel for a night just for this helicopter tour. Everything was in... More

My wife and I decided that we wanted a sunset helicopter ride that landed at the base of the valley near the Grand Canyon. All of the trips originating at the Grand Canyon just do a fly over below the rim. We drove over 4 hours each way and rented a hotel to make the Helicopter ride work. We paid... More

Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately based on the information provided in your review we do not believe that you flew with Sundance Helicopters. Sundance has not owned any jet rangers for for nearly 10 years. From your review details we believe that you flew with another helicopter operator located at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. We would... More

We'd booked the sunset tour before we went on holiday as we wanted to do it on our last night before flying home and didn't want to leave it until we got to Vegas in case there was no availability. We'd exchanged a few emails regarding limo pick up and passenger weight, in the days before and as we were... More

Purchased this Helecopter trip with Champagne and Luch at the bottom of the Canyon in mid August as friends informed us this was a "must trip" to take in Vegas. It was amazing. The views were breathtaking. Our Pilot was a Chap named 'Don' from Colarado on his first season I think. Don is a brilliant guide and pointed out... More

I purchased the sunset Grand Canyon tour with champagne picnic, canyon landing, views of lake mead, hoover dam and the Las Vegas strip. Although; the views were breathtaking, we sat 7 (including the pilot), which was very cramped. The "upgrade" to the limo was joke! When I ride in a limo it's for luxury. We had NO AIR CONDITIONING -... More
