The Pilot was Great
FRANK_L

The Pilot, Alex, was wonderful. However, if you are seated in the rear seats you only see half of what's pointed out. Yet you pay the same full price. Only saw a very small piece of the Grand Canyon.

Both my wife Pam and myself are still trying to find the words to describe this experience. Above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Our pilot, Fred, was very knowledgeable and made the flight that much more. Thanks and thanks again. This is the way to see the Grand Canyon. Also, the folks that helped at the station were the friendliest folk around. It was one of those events that we will remember for a long, long time. Thanks for the memories....

Once we checked in we actually upgraded our tour to the 45 minute version and it was outstanding in every way! Would highly recommend this company and this adventure was one of the highlights of our entire trip!

I had to sit in the back in the middle, so I didn't have the best view. I'm sure that it was because I was heavier than the other passengers. It was a great ride, but I wish I could have had a better seat.

Our pilot was a really nice guy. Talked us through all the areas we were passing over and made us all feel very comfortable. I really REALLY enjoyed this tour, it was an amazing experience. Well worth it. The parking at the airport is super, loads of spaces and only a few miles south of the entrance to the national park. If you don't have a car with you to leave a bag in, then don't take a bag (inclu handbag) with you as it wont be allowed on with you. I highly recommend this trip.

Wow. What a great ride. Nice "terminal", professional people, great friendly pilot, smooth ride, beautiful view, and what appears to be a very modern Helicopter... 4 X 4 Seating on our trip, the filled the front row (Pilot + 3), and the back row had 2, one on each window, so that way everyone had a window seat. would recommend to everyone.
