Wonderful trip! Long day but well worth it. Robert was great. Lunch was great. Canyon was stunning. So glad we did it!

I got picked up at 7:20 am, the last hotel pickup and the 12th passenger on a minibus. About half of the passengers chose to take the heli-trip and the other got that extra hour not far away. The helicopter took 7 passengers.

Once we passed the outskirts of Phoenix, the driver passed out sandwich order checklists so we could choose our own and the bread was made that morning. He put in the order over the radio and we picked them up in Sedona where we stopped for 30 minutes. Along the highway our driver narrated about some history which was very interesting.

Once on board the helicopter our seat had been assigned based on our weight. I was given a front seat second in from the door. We were not allowed to bring bags or purses, only cameras, cellphones and a bottle of water. Even though it was winter, our driver had told us it would be on the warm side, and the jackets were stored. We were strapped in and ready to head over the edge into the canyon. The ride was about 50 minutes. I was able to take some video. Afterwards, we had a couple more stops for lookouts. I was dropped back off at 7pm. Great Day!
