My husband and I were in Vegas for 2 nights of our 2 week USA trip. We are from Australia so this was pratically a once in a lifetime experience for us. I found Papillon to be the cheapest out of all the companies doing helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon which is why we booked with them and it... More

The trip with Papillon was very beautiful! We had a flight time of about 1h and 10 min. Our pilot was very good in flying but did not talk too much what was a pity (we would have loved to get some background information about the canyon). Don't expect to see a lot of the Hoover Dam as you only... More

We booked the early morning 7am flight ( which was fine due to jet lag!) we arrived at our pick up point 10 minutes early and the bus was already waiting. We were first to be collected which did mean a trip to several other casinos, although being our first time in Vegas it did give a quick sight seeing... More

Booked a helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon with a champagne breakfast with Papilion . We were picked up at our hotel and taken out to Boulder City Airport where the winds were gusting to 30 mph. We were introduced to our pilot who assured us all that we were safe yo fly , we took off very smoothly and... More

I went on the rather expensive morning champagne breakfast flight and I also paid extra for a front seat. Expensive? Yes, it's not cheap but, it IS the Grand Canyon and, unless we're really lucky, we can't do something like that every day! There is no way I can speak for other operators, there may be better ones out there... More

Great experience that helps you appreciate the size of the Grand Canyon! We had a prompt pick up from our hotel in Las Vegas to Boulder City, easy check in with a discrete weigh in, to decide where you sit in the helicopter! Our pilot got the balance between talking to us about the area, and letting us appreciate the... More

What an amazing ride over and into the Grand Canyon. Spectacular views that it is so hard to describe, our helicopter pilot was very informative. We landed right into/onto the Grand Canyon and our pilot supplied us with a mini picnic basket each and champagne. It was well worth the money and I definitely recommended it

Great experience. Booked while in LV for the next day and on-line booking process was very easy. Picked up on time and transferred to the airport (Boulder City). Comfortable terminal during our wait. Our pilot (Josh) was very knowledgeable and took time to answer all questions to the best of his ability. He also took the time to explain how... More

My husband and I were on Las Vegas for his conference and we booked a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, Lake Meade, Hoover dam and Mojave desert. We were picked up at our hotel early morning and brought to Papillon Helicopter's field in Boulder City. Our pilot, Evan, reviewed safety procedures with us and then off we went with... More
