The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure!

Went on Valentine's Day with my wife. We both enjoyed it so much. Went on the Grand Peak Tour and the scenery was so beautiful. The pilot was so informative of the area and was great with the tour. Definitely recommend this Tour.

This was so much fun! Pilots Will and Eli were so nice and very professional. My daughter, her ten-year-old son, and I enjoyed every minute of our ride to view the spectacular Christmas lights of Colorado Springs. So that's three generations of happy travelers. Highly recommended!

The ride was smooth, not like a small plane at all. Great view of Xmas lights. Cautious and professional pilots rescheduled when conditions warranted it. Nice people! Thanks!

Surprised my girlfriend with a Heli tour and ended it with a proposal over the royal gorge. Our pilot Will Sanders was the man! We had issues with wind speeds at pikes peak(pikes peak or bust tour) however Will was quick to make the call in the morning of the flight and adjusted the flight plan for a safe adventure.... More
