Amazing experience. Pilot was really informative and friendly. Defo worth the money. When we landed I just wanted to get back in and do it all again. Sunset was beautiful and fab views of strip

This tour was wonderful. There was a decent amount of "down" time between when we arrived at the airport until the time we took off. The trip was fantastic - landing right near the rim - nice amount of time for pictures and the light picnic with champagne. They even accommodated the one person in our group who was gluten free! I would absolutely recommend this trip.

ASTOUNDING VIEWS! VERY PROFESSIONAL! WORTH EVERY PENNY! From booking this tour, experiencing the tour and to being dropped of at my hotel, it was an all perfect ride! I was picked up by a limousine as expected, got to sit next to the driver and had an entertaining chat with him.
The helicopter ride was such a thrill! My first time ever and we had one of the best weather conditions ever. No bumpy ride at all. Great music for take off, interesting explanation from the narrator and the pilot added some extra information as well. Having seen the South rim of the Grand Canyon I knew what to expect a little bit but it's really impossible to describe when you fly over the West rim and dive in between the two ridges.
After flying over Vegas, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, the Grand Canyon appears ahead of you, looking so impossibly large and overwhelming! The picknick is a surreal experience almost, expecially since the sun sets leaving beautiful shades on the rim and making the most beautiful pictures possible. Who can say they zipped from their champagne, while being surrounded by this true wonder in nature.
Yet, the BANG to my tour was the trip back to Vegas when you could see the sun set on the horizon. The closer you get to Vegas the more lights appear in front of you. It's when you understand that Vegas is huge! So many lights and such an awesome feeling to be able to fly directly along the Strip. I would advise anyone, to book this tour as a SUNSET TOUR!
I actually will be back in a few years and book the same tour in one of their bigger helicopters to be able to also reserve a place in the front. It's the only thing I regret. I sat on the second row and could make great pictures but next time I want to be in the front and take it all in....
Thanks Helicopter tour company! And a special thanks to Benny who was my limo driver on the way back.
