Great experience! We actually drove to the west rim, but they closed the road. My kids were happy it closed since we ended up finding the helicopter tour into the canyon.

My boys talked me into this helicopter tour against my will. I’m glad we did it. It was awesome! Pilot Colton did a great job and made it extra fun for my son who turned 16. We were going to go on the glass bottom walk instead but this way much better! You could see everything. We felt very safe and would recommend this company. We stayed at the Grand Canyon Western Ranch which was adorable.

We found out about Wild West Helicopters via a third party site, which was compared to other Grand Canyon Helicopter tours on the West Rim. We decided upon Wild West due to the longer flight time, reasonable price and the fact it's on a genuine ranch. We hired a car and drove from Las Vegas and was not disappointed at all! Upon arrival the staff were super friendly and helpful. We had some issues in delays due to traffic in Vegas and the staff did everything they could to rearrange on the same day to make sure that we still got our helicopter tour. We were worried it would be cancelled due to our delay, but they made arrangements specially for us and couldn't thank them enough for this. On to the helicopter tour... Wow. This is truly an experience like no other. We were sceptical of how good the trip would be and honestly recommend spending the extra money and going for the helicopter tour over just visiting the skywalk. The flight into the Grand Canyon West Rim is exciting and the pilot was super knowledgeable about everything surrounding the area and the Grand Canyon. The moment you fly deep into the Canyon is truly breath taking and an experience like you wouldn't believe. The flight doesn't feel rushed at all and you get some truly spectacular views you wouldn't see if you didn't fly with these guys. Pictures and videos do not do this tour justice so get a few and make sure you take in the 'below the rim' experience. When the flight was over we stuck around the ranch for a bit and would recommend anyone doing this who has a spare hour or so after the helicopter tour. The ranch is so much fun and the food is fantastic. We had the delight of a cowboy playing his guitar and providing songs and humour to us while we waited for food. This is something you wouldn't get from one of the other West Rim tours so makes the whole experience much more authentic. If you are in two minds of whether to book with Wild West Helicopters, don't be. Make the booking and have the time of your life, you won't get to experience the Grand Canyon in a better way and with more knowledgable and friendly staff to share the experience with.

We chose this trip as it was more cost effective than other options. We hired a car and drove from Las Vegas, which was really good in itself and a great way to see the countryside, particularly the Joshua Trees. The ranch was easy to find and all the staff really welcoming and friendly. Our pilot Wade was knowledgable about the canyon and really added to the experience. I’d recommend this trip with this company to anyone.
