On our visit to Grand Canyon, we did the helicopter ride with Sundance Helicopters. On arrival we were taken to their counter by our guide. After submission of booking docs, we were asked to wait for our turn. It took us about 45 minutes till we were asked to walk to the helipad which was a 2 minutes walk from their office. The flying time was less than 1/2 hour and the ground staff & pilot were helpful and friendly. We had also booked Colorado river boat ride for which we were dropped at river base for a twenty minutes boat ride. We were then picked up again by the helicopter to take us over the Grand Canyon to the helipad. It was a great experience.

We had visited US with SOTC group and booked the tour from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon by bus with return via Hoover Dam. We had booked bus tour, helicopter tour and Colorado river boat ride. It was a truly amazing experience. We started from Vegas early morning around 9.00 and it was a nice drive of almost 45 minutes from our hotel to Grand Canyon through Sierra Nevada mountains and then to the Arizona state. On the way as you pass through the desert, you will see big Cactus trees all over. Upon arrival, our guide took us to the Sundance helicopter counter and after checking, we were asked to wait for our turn which took around 45 minutes wait. We were 4 people in the helicopter other than the pilot. We got the front seat which is always the best. It was a great experience to be hoovering over the Grand Canyon as we flew along. After 15 minutes we were dropped at the base from where we were to do our boat ride. The boat ride on Colorado river was nice and was for about 20 minutes. Then we again boarded the helipopter and it was about 10 minutes flight to the helipad. Needless to say that you get excellent view of the Grand Canyon from the helicopter and boat ride which are not visible from the Skywalk. It cost us $360 per person but worth it and included packed lunch. The ground staff of Sundance were helpful and the pilot as well. The whole tour took us almost 2 1/2 hours including waiting time. We then did the bus tour through the desert. The weather was very warm more than 40 degree C. Must carry hat and water.

We booked the sunset tour with a landing in the canyon. We got picked up from the hotel on time in a limousine. We then went and collected four other people and went to the airport. We were weighed in and given a safety briefing then we went to our helicopter. The pilot was first class, we were a bit apprehensive before but the flight was excellent. We had a bout half an hour once we had landed and were given a snack and a glass of something to drink . Then we flew back over the strip as the night was drawing in. A very enjoyable way to spend the afternoon. The only small fault was that our driver didn't wait to take us back, luckily another driver took us back. The whole experience was near faultless and would recommend Sundance without question

If you are debating what tour to do, look NO further! This is the best experience you will ever have! This was worth every penny we paid and I would do it again. We had Brian and he was extremely accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly. It was the best adventure we have ever been on and a time we will never forget. I was nervous about getting on a helicopter, but am so thankful I did it! Highly suggest doing the morning tour as it gets very hot in the afternoon. We went in September and did the 6:45am tour, watched the sunrise over the Grand Canyon wall. As we were leaving around noon it was getting to be unbearably hot. Wear comfortable clothes, shoes and water! You will need it!

This was by far a once in a lifetime and about the best money spent. We went for the package that included the heli flip, pontoon ride and a return hotel transfer. They sent a Limo to pick us up at 5:30am [we took the 6am flight option]. It took about 20 min to register and then we met the pilot and took off. Its approx 30 min to get there and you fly over the Hoover Dam and you can see the dam wall [but don't go near it]. The trip was as explained on their website. I must recommend going for the full package as well as the earlier flights - it gets really hot in the canyon and can't imagine being there pass noon. We were back at our hotel on the strip approx. 1/1:30 pm, if you need to know the total duration.
