Took the tour out over lake mead, the hoover dam and then land in the canyon for lunch and a beer (or champers) follwed by the flight back.

Took the afternoon flight which involved a pick up from the hotel in a luxury minbus which ferried us to the boulder city airport. this was about 30 mins i think, but we were chatting to the other 2 couples on the same flight and so i cant be sure....it wasnt long anyway!

When we arrived at the airport we were ushered into Serenity's very nice little hanger which was more like a little wine bar than an airport, complimentary water, pretzles, muffins etc prior to and after the flight.

The trip itself was awesome, not the smothest helicopter flight ive been on, but the weather was a little stormy the day we flew, and it certainly wasnt too bad. Scenery....EPIC, cant describe it further than that. Landing in the canyon was a nice touch and lunch was adequate.

Big thanks to Shelby, Brittany, Molly and Jennifer for makeing the trip so good, we wont be back as i think this is a once in a lifetime trip but I certainly would recommend it.

Cost wise we paid $370 each including taxes and booked via the tour company in the pharmacy (CVS possibly?) next to the montecarlo Hotel, i belive that the cost in the brochure was $400+ plus taxes, so a little discount might be available if you shop around.

Just returned from our trip to America,and have to say that the highlight of our holiday was the trip to the Grand Canyon with Serenity Helicopters. From our pick up at the hotel by Dave to the lovely welcome by all the girls at Boulder City,and not forgetting the main man Chad.
Everyone made you feel at ease and gave clear instructions as to what to expect from the trip. We would recommend this company as all the staff are friendly and proffessional. We ordered the DVD and was told we would receive it in about 3-4 weeks,we did the flight on the 14th Sept and we arrrived home on the 24th Sept and the DVD was waiting for us. A fantastic memory of a fantastic day!!!!!
Thanks again, Love to everyone at Serenity Helicopters. xx

From start to finish it was the experience of a lifetime! Our limo van driver David was great at keeping the conversation going. Caitlyn, Jenn and Brittany were sweet and knowledgable. Our pilot Chad was laid-back & informative, making our time in the sky a spiritual experience. Loved the music in the headphones between Chad's comments about what we were seeing. The landing and views throughout were incredible! Highly recommend Serenity for a personal touch!

From the moment we were picked up at our hotel from the lovely Molly we knew it was going to be a great trip. On arrival we met the very charming Shelby and Anabel (Happy Birth Day Annabelle!  ), the atmosphere was extremely welcoming and relaxed - The Champagne helped with this also!! And I guess the girls could tell we were a little nervous as they kindly kept refilling our glasses!

As for the flight, it was our first time in a helicopter but Jennifer put us right at ease with her laid back personality. Awesome sights on the way out to the canyon, including lake Mead and the Hoover damn – on which Jenny was very knowledgeable which was great.

We landed in the Canyon for lunch and although the rain started it was still an amazing experience with breath taking views.

Definitely once in a life time and would recommend it to all.

The best way to see the Grand Canyon. Also great views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel by shuttle bus. Short drive to Boulder City where we took off from the airport there. The views were incredible and we had a picnic after landing in the canyon. Jennifer, our pilot, was very informative and made the flight very enjoyable. The flying was more comfortable than being in a commercial airliner. The staff were all wonderful, cheerful, and friendly. Cheers to Jennifer, Shelby, Anabel, Molly, and Caitlyn. The experience was the best and made our trip to Las Vegas special.
