If you can afford it, do it! We just did and it was amazing. The moment you come out of the woods and fly into the canyon... breathtaking!

I travelled with Justin the pilot who added zero to the experience other than fly the chopper and play music. No commentary or chat, nothing on the flight plan, nothing on landmarks, nothing on the river, nothing on the changing colour of the river. I...More

We flew the "Majestic" package. It is a 25-30 minute flight out of Tusuyan Arizona across the canyon to the north rim and back. Would do it again but would request a front seat next time.
Hi. Where did you buy this helicopter tour? Do they take you from Las Vegas? If not, how do you get to the airport to take the helicopter?. Thanks a lot.
