The smart and exceedingly comfortable transport in the form of a black van with wifi enabled iPads for each seat was already waiting as we turned up at our appointed time for the journey to Boulder City. Adrian, the driver, was friendly and chatty as we made our way to the hanger for check-in. The formalities of weight check and ticket confirmation were done rapidly by the friendly staff at the desk who called us all by name. Drinks were offered and after a short wait we were all marched our to the helicopter for a photo call. The pilot, Cole, was confident, friendly and informative as he guided the chopper over Lake Mead, the Hoover dam and on towards the Grand Canyon. Excellent views afforded great photo and video opportunities and after 30 mins or so we made an imperceptible landing on the most exclusive picnic site. Views above and below met all expectations and lunch was served (salad, cheese, grapes chocolate cake) along with the drink we had requested during the van pick up ride (choice of soft drinks, champagne, wine, beer etc) as our pilot filled us in on the geography. The trip back to Boulder City incorporated a refuelling stop in the middle of the desert and some weaving through the rocky valleys. A total of 2 hours had elapsed by the time of our landing at the airstrip and helipads. The seats in the helicopter were comfortable, the headsets allowed commentary by our pilot and his personally chosen evocative playlist and attention to safety detail was impressive. It was a memorable experience by a company obviously geared to delivering quality and confidence in what to many making their first helicopter flight might otherwise have been an anxious time. It's not cheap but if you want to experience the Grand Canyon at its most impressive it's worth every cent.

Our trip to the Grand Canyon was one to remember. A fantastic trip. Serenity were brilliant. They picked us up in style and took us to Boulder. Our pilot Matteo was great with good knowledge of canyon. He served our breakfast in the canyon and helped make this a wonderful trip for us to remember. Thank you to all serenity staff. Would definitely use this company again.

Incredible customer service awesome staff, very friendly and accommodative. The whole staff was awesome, Sam, Shawn, chrissy, and Shelby and I can't forget our incredible pilot Jim! He was the highlight of our tour! He was very knowledgable about the sights and history with also being able to throw some jokes in here and there. We absolutely loved it, he had us laughing the whole time! I highly recommend for everyone to do this at least once in their lifetime and use serenity helicopters, you won't be disappointed!! First class service and tour!! Sam and Joe from PA! 1st year anniversary.

Having done the heli tour of the Grand Canyon on wed 17th oct I hav to say I was left dumbfounded!! The awesome view an breathtaking scenery of the Grand Canyon cannot be viewed better than in a helicopter.

With myself having a slight fear of heights and flying in general I wanted to do the bus tour. My friends however wanted to so the helicopter. After doing it I'm glad they pushed me into it!!!

Serenity themselves were excellent. Arthur collected us from the hotel and was full of information and we all had a good laugh on the way to an back from boulder city.

The staff in the office were very friendly an helpful as well.

Highlight of the tour however has to go to Jim Gisclair the pilot. As I mention I have a slight fear of flying but Jim made me an my group all feel very comfortable. He was a fountain of knowledge. Some real, some not ha ha. A real story teller an made the trip through the canyon a real treat. Being a group of Irish lads we enjoy the craic and Jim delivered on that score, having the laugh an cracking jokes with us all.

All in all the trip round the canyon with serenity was amazing. A once in a lifetime trip made all the better by this excellent group of people an Jim's awesome playlist of music!!!

Thanks for all the memories guys

We took the Grand Canyon Tour with Serenity Helicopters and had the best experience ever. We had our 11 year old daughter with us and we have been home a week and she hasn't stopped talking about it. From the limo driver, Adrian who picked us up in the morning, to all the office staff and especially the pilot Jim, we had the most fantastic adventure. If you do nothing else while you are in Vegas, you have to do the helicopter tour and landing in the Grand Canyon with Serenity and Jim...We just received the CD of out trip in the mail today and have sat and watched it twice already. Thank you all for a wonderful memory.
