    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Grand Canyon National Park, AZ

    Enjoy a memorable helicopter experience over the Southern and Northern Rims of the Grand Canyon.

    You will have a "birds eye view" to this Natural Wonder of the World! After flying over the Kaibab National Forest, you will enter the Dragon Corridor, the deepest and widest part of the Grand Canyon. Marvel at the Canyon's legendary beauty while relaxing in comfort. Have your camera ready as the colorful vistas will leave you awe-struck. These sights, only accessible from a helicopter, will sure to be a topic of discussion for years to come!

    If you select the 'Hummer' option, after you have landed you will travel to the Grand Canyon National Park with stops that may include Moran Point, Grandview Point, and other points of interest along the rim on an approximate 2 hour hummer tour. Your expert guide will point out all the highlights on your journey to the most picturesque parts of the Grand Canyon National Park.

    This has been the most amazing experience of my life. Grand Canyon from a helicopter is a absolute must. Half an hour seemed a long time. So worth the money. Highly recommended with papillon helicopters as well. From checking in, getting you ready to the pilot, all very

    We were worried that the rain would stop us. But it cleared enough and we got out. This was worth the money in our opinion. We paired it with the buckwild hummer tour, I would recommend not doing that part. If you have a car, just drive yourself.

    Basically it is a lottery, you might be satisfied or, like me, hugely disappointed. In my case, they put 6 people on board, 1 in front and 4 next to windows, while I as assigned the seat in the middle with an obstructed view. I paid exactly the same amount of money, as

    We offer our apologies that the allocated seating left you dissatisfied. Seating is allocated by the weight and balance calculations of the aircraft; this is an industry standard of safety as small aircraft must be properly balanced in order to fly safely. There are times that the aircraft must be flown with fewer number of people - again, this is for safety reasons and not for profit. We also offer front seat upgrades as an option to our passengers. Most guests find our seating comfortable with good views as we only fly helicopters designed specifically for sightseeing. We regret that our offers of compensation and an additional tour were not acceptable, and we do hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to Las Vegas. Respectfully, Papillon Management
