Ken, the pilot and the ground team were awesome. I had breakfast at the airport and dropped in to see if i could find a fit for a flight. They were very accommodating and made me feel welcome and safe.
I would highly recommend this team for a great air view of Sedona's geological history and topography.

What a wonderful experience!!! Captain Kirk was an amazing pilot that not only took us on an outstanding adventure but his commentary was exceptional. Jamica assisted me with my proposal to my girlfriend after our ride was over and everything went perfectly because of her help. The value for this experience is well worth the price and highly recommend Guidance Air for your enhanced Sedona experience.

My husband and I were in Sedona this week to celebrate our anniversary. Sitting at Mesa Grill eating breakfast yesterday and watching planes fly in and out for the second day in a row, the topic of taking a helicopter tour came up for what was probably the 20th time during the course of our trip. As we finalized our meal and paid our bill, we decided we were going to walk the hundred feet out of our way and ask about the tours in person. When we walked into Guidance Air one of the employees asked what they could help us with. We said we were looking for a miracle. Was there any availability for a helicopter tour before we left Sedona? We were planning on leaving right after breakfast so this was a big ask. Thanks to the amazing, miracle-worker employees whose names I'm not going to get right (Bria and the Australian?), within 20 minutes we were boarding a helicopter with pilot, Kenn. Kenn was knowledgeable in the history of the area giving us a lesson along the flight. He was also skillful in his navigation maneuvering the helicopter so that the ride was smooth and even, like we were floating through and along the canyons. What a phenomenal and legitimately life-altering experience! We can't recommend Guidance Air any more highly. Everything was truly amazing.

Fantastic red rock scenery and first class service. Christian was an excellent pilot and guided us to a number of canyons not accessible by car. The check-in process went smoothly and the entire team at Guidance Air was professional and friendly.

I would recommend an early flight as windy conditions can happen in Sedona later in the day and could cause re-scheduling challenges.

If you think the red rock landscape around Sedona Arizona is stunning from from the ground, it is over the top beautiful from the air. My wife and I were on a 2 week trip around trip Arizona and of course Sedona was on our must see list. We were staying at a local hotel that as it happens was within a one minute drive from Guidance Air, a local helicopter tour company. We saw online that the company does a tour of Native American dwelling sites. For anyone interested in archeological sites, or just history in general, this is the tour to take.

But the surprising thing is how beautiful the Sedona landscapes are from the sky!

My wife and I made the short trip to Guidance Air from our hotel. We met Stacie in the company office that is adjacent to the tour operations take off and land site. We were greeted with a smile and a fantastic attitude by Stacie. All tour guests must watch a 2 minute or so safety video about their upcoming tour. We were driven in a van to the takeoff and land site for our tour.

I was a little concerned for my wife, who has not been on a helicopter in 30 years. Would the ride be rough, or would there be high speed banking.

Well, our pilot Kenn, the ultimate pilot and tour guide, made the trip feel like a magic carpet ride!

Before takeoff the wonderful Stacie helped us into the aircraft and made sure we were properly buckled in and had our headsets on to listen to Kenn. We could also talk to Kenn to ask questions.

The tour was flat out incredible and worth every penny. The views of Sedona from the air are mind blowing. Kenn pointed out at least three Native American dwelling sites while my wife and I took numerous pictures and videos.

After the tour, Stacie met us at the landing site for pictures with Kenn and the aircraft. She transported us back to the office for a nice glass of wine.

Thank you Stacie and Kenn for showing a couple of intrepid travelers from Florida an experience that we will not forget.

Last minute decision to jump on a helicopter with my wife for her birthday turned out to be a forever experience that we will talk about forever. WHY:

1. The ladies in the office are SUPER nice and we had a trip booked and paid for in 3 minutes flat!

2. We got excited to the Helicopter like royalty.

3. Christian was our pilot, who has this calming and assuring voice that took the swetty palms right out of my wife and made her feel comfortable.

What a great trip. They have an incredible company.

We can STRONGLY recommend GA tours

Our son and daughter-in-law gave us the sunset dinner flight. The staff was so kind and thorough getting us checked in and boarded for our flight. Ken was our super pilot and pointed out formations and highlights. Don't miss this experience. We then enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Mesa Grill just next to Guidance Air, using a voucher which was a part of the package we had received as our present. Exhilarating!

Unbelievable!!! We had never been in a helicopter and what a way to start! I associate helicopters with the show Survivor! Every season a reward challenge involves a helicopter tour of amazing scenery! We were not disappointed!
We booked at a kiosk in town with a very friendly guy that gave us all the info we needed to book our tour. We did the 45 minute tour. I would not book anything less than 30 minutes unless you absolutely could not afford it. This is a pricey thing to do, but you will never forget it and worth every penny.
The ride was very smooth and the pilot told us many things about the area we had not heard. The views were amazing. I could have stayed up all day!!

We did the Sacred Spires trip and couldn’t have had a better time. Our pilot, Matt, was friendly, knowledgeable and highly skilled. I’ve hiked Sedona countless times, but this was a whole new perspective. A flight with Guidance Air should be on the itinerary for every trip to Sedona.

My family of 6 visited Sedona in July 2021 and booked the Heli/Razo Combo Tour. First let me say, that this is probably the best deal for your money. Now, while I would have loved the helicopter ride to be a bit longer, our pilot gave a great history of Sedona and suggestions on “not to miss” places to visit. You can tell he truly loves what he does. And, you just can beat the views of the red rocks from the sky. It’s something you’ll not want to miss out on. Afterwards, we headed to Sedona ATV. I thought we were getting on ATVs with a tour guide, so was surprised when we showed up and they handed us the keys and a map and said…”Have a great time” 😊 Honestly, though it was great to have the freedom to explore on our own and we certainly did, through some gnarly trails, a monsoon, and lots and lots of red dust. A word of advice….don’t wear white. Finally, I cannot say enough about how nice the folks at Guidance Air and Sedona ATV were. From the pilot, to the girls who checked us in, to the folks at Sedona ATV, they were all some of the most welcoming, helpful, and polite people I have ever met. Book with them, you won’t regret it.
