An unforgettable experience and in my mind the only way to really see the Grand Canyon other than days of hiking. The air ship was really cool as was its pilot. Very much recommend!

We were very lucky to have blue skies and no wind. Audio in the helicopter was lousy. Couldn't hear and wanted too learn more about the canyon.

Please accept our apologies over the malfunctioning headsets. Tour narration is an important part of each tour, and we want to ensure that our guests can learn about the canyon in their preferred language. Please reach out to our Guest Relations department for assistance, they may be able to obtain a partial refund for the missing narration; you can reach the department at guestrelations@papillon.com. Our hope is that you were still able to enjoy the views of the Grand Canyon! Respectfully, GCH Management

This was a great ride, enjoyed by all. To travel over forest and see the Grand Canyon open up beneath us was breathtakingly beautiful! We are able to see both the north rim and south rim. Our pilot was very informative and pointed out many different structures within the Canyon

A good way to see them when you are short on time & cant do the actual hike. It is a different angle but equally spectacular view couldn’t do the North rim because of weather but overall loved it.
