This was the most amazing experience of my life ! The pilot we had was funny and really Knowledgeable. At times when the flight experienced “rough air “ we would look at him and he’d be so calm and it assured us that we were safe and we quickly relaxed and enjoyed the tour.if it wasn’t 114 degrees out there I would totally do it again!

Cost for a Canyon floor tour $388 per person. When I tried to reserve an add on service fee of $30 per person plus $30 per person prime time fee (for choosing AM time) then another $30 per person transport fee. Transporting is part of itinerary and should be included in cost. No thanks. This is a joke.

We booked a helicopter tour which included a landing at the fire valley, and suddenly the itinerary got changed by the company. The helicopters were very old and dirty, none of the pictures looked generally good due to the windows being disgustingly unclean, and the helicopter looked like it hadn’t been cleaned or properly sanitized for the passengers’ safety (COVID-19). The customer service in the building was repulsive, the employees were rude, ignorant and refused to cooperate. To finalize this horrid experience, the limousines arrived 45 minutes late, with no sanitation which was a very large covid hazard so we ended up taking an Uber.

The helicopter tour was the highlight of our trip. And, as a private pilot, I was impressed with the focus on safety in all phases of the flight. Wonderful sights in the Grand Canyon, sunset view, puffy white cumulus clouds, and a fun and knowledgeable pilot. Next time I go to Las Vegas, I'll take the tour again, but I think I'll go for a tour that includes a landing. It would be awesome to video a decent into the canyon.

We absolutely did not have a good experience with this company. We booked an event on Tuesday. They reached out to me and were trying to reschedule us. Unfortunately, we were getting married and not flexible on Tuesday. We stayed with our original time on Wednesday. They then called a couple hours before our scheduled time to reschedule us for a late afternoon event. They later called and canceled that event. They told us we could take the evening excursion however it was going to cost me more money. I don’t feel like it was my fault that they canceled or tried to reschedule my flight twice and then have the audacity to tell me that I would have to pay more money for a different excursion that I didn’t sign up for. It was a complete lack of professionalism and terrible customer service. I have read countless reviews from this company hopefully this is an isolated incident.

Hi N8128GGlindsayb, You booked your tour as the Las Vegas Strip and all tour companies were coming back on line after the COVID-19 shutdown. During this phase, all suppliers and tour companies were challenged with fewer guests/bookings. Our suppliers must operate with a minimum of 4 passengers per helicopter and GC Flight is bound by their policies. The tour you selected did not have the minimum number of guests needed to operate. We, then, attempted to move you to a different supplier/tour. The tours available on both days were upgraded tours and, therefore, a few dollars more. Please understand that we are all doing the best we can during these uncertain times. Thank you for your feedback! Best wishes and congratulations on your marriage!
