We flew out of the South Rim airport on a 25-30 minute flight to the north rim and back, and words cannot describe the experience! We had visited the Mather viewpoint earlier in the day with another couple and that had been breathtaking for sure-once we got there, that is. Finding a parking spot was a bit of a gong... More

Wow! What a way to see the Grand Canyon. Our female pilot was terrific. The music played on our way out was inspiring and the presentation playing while we were flying over the canyon was just right. Would highly recommend this trip.

So I took the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon despite hating heights. I can honestly it was worth the initial fear to see what can only be described as indescribable views. Absolutely amazing. Lovely to see that the canyon has not been spoiled by civilisation. Our pilot Shelby was very knowledgable on the Canyon and was happy to answer... More

It was great experience for us. Definitly worth to do it. We did 45 minutes tour. It is unique experience to see the Canyon from this perspective. It is not cheap but we reccomend to take this opportunity.

The helicopter ride was very impressive but we spent the extra money to get the longer tour, supposedly was going to be 45-50 min. It was 40 min from takeoff till we touched down. Not fair advertising. Our pilot Mandy was not very friendly, did not make any effort, never pointed out anything on the trip or told us where... More

Though low budged we decided to pay 199$ for that trip. Unfortunately I didn't got a window seat. Others tried to give me room to see, but still. I got always cameras in my view or people leaning against the window. I couldn't see down into the canyon, because the helicopter went straight into it. I just had the view... More
