This was a fantastic tour, a definite highlight of our jam-packed trip around America. We had no hassle with our limo pick up from our hotel and were quickly at the heli-port. There was a bit of hanging around and a few last minute helicopter switches but not too much of an issue.
We throughly enjoyed our flight there when we got to sit in the front. Our pilot Michelle was lovely and made us all feel at ease. We had a nice chat with her during our picnic stop in the Canyon. A great view to the Canyon with audio tour and a tasty meal was provided.
It was a little squishy on the trip back as we were now in the back and with another couple too, overall not too bad. We did however miss a lot of our view of the sunset and the strip due to the couple in the front seat. The male occupant had made a fuss about sitting in the front, proceeded to sleep most of the return flight and then held his camera up high to film the entire section of the flight above the strip meaning we couldn't see it well nor could we take pictures over his shoulder without his camera in the way.
Not a massive drama but a bit disappointing as this was somewhere new we had never been and would've enjoyed to see properly.
We had a bit of a wait time for our return pickup along with about 10 other people as there only seemed to be two limos to drop off a number of people. There wasn't a lot of communication although we were provided with some more champagne by one of the staff members still remaining in the building.
All in all a terrific experience which was well worth doing and which we will not forget. Thanks Michelle and Sundance.
