    Had really good experience. Our pilot Mark made it enjoyable (I'm afraid of hights) with he's jokes and professionalism.

    While we booked a 45 min flight - due to low clouds and fog we were offered the opportunity to reschedule, cancel or take a slightly different flight of only 30 minutes. We really enjoyed our 30 min flight, and the refund for the change was almost immediate. Will do this again soon

    Very nice experience, kids absolutely loved it! The views you get are unbeatable. The flight was very relax, the pilot very kind. Must add it to your to-do-list when visiting the canyon.

    Nice tour, definitely a nice tour - But don't spend the $50 they offer to be placed up front: it's not honored since it depends on the weight of the other passengers. Keep your 50 bucks.

    Excellent customer service, highlight of our four-day visit to Grand Canyon. You will think that you are hovering over the huge canyon but ask your pilot what your airspeed is, you will be very surprised.

    Our pilot Jeff was great, explaining everything we went above, from departing, through the pine forest, and all the canyon itself ofcourse. The helicopter was clean, the ride was smooth, and the views was exceptional. Great value for the flight cost. My kids and I had the time of our life.
    Thank you.
