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!

Our first helicopter flight. It was a great experience. Our pilot was so nice, explained everything and made us feel very comfortable. Our only complaint, it was all over too quickly. Thank you for a safe flight.

Absolutely awesome!!!! Convinced my wife to go on the Christmas light tour over the Springs and she loved it as did I. Being out of the Blackhawk cockpit for 3 years, it was a much needed and welcomed flight. The pilot (Eli) is the epitome of a professional aviator. Very knowledgeable, polite and has a great control touch. Will, also... More

Great trip with skilled pilot. Finally managed to get up close to my favorite part of Sawatch Mountains. Puts a smile on my face whenever I think about this great Birthday present.

This was the first time my girlfriend had ever been in on a helicopter. Will was behind the controls and i have to say he made the first experience the best it could be. He showed us all over the royal gorge, did some cool lean overs on the helicopter and the whole time made us both feel really safe.... More

Royal Gorge Helitours / Colorado Vertical Adventures is a MUST DO if you are around Canon City, CO, or near the Royal Gorge. The sights are simply breathtaking and astonishing. My brother and I visited Colorado for the very first time in October and decided we would try this helicopter tour. We are glad we did. Eli, Marylyn, and Will... More

Everything was wonderful! The scenic view, the chopper, the service... Everything was great! We did the Pike's peak tour that pretty much covered everything. I recommend royal gorge helitours! A shout out to Eli for going out of his way to hand us the phone we left inside the helicopter! Thank you for the amazing service!

The pilot was great, friendly and knowledgable. I enjoyed the ride, if I had the money I'd take a longer trip, it seemed like we barely got going and it was over!
