Very organized operation. We didn't have to wait more than 30 minutes before we were escorted to the helicopter. The helicopter has large windows so you can take unobstructed photographs of the canyon. After the flight we checked their gift shop that has beautiful Native...More

This is one of the best things we ever did. It's amazing to view the Grand Canyon from above, there are no words to describe this experience. The crew at Papillon work very effectively; we were quite early and were booked on an earlier flight....More

We visited Las Vegas in mid-May 2017, staying at the Bellagio. We found most things more expensive than we'd imagined and that included Grand Canyon tours. We were looking for a helicopter only tour (we didn't want to spend hours on a bus) and we...More

We tried to do the Grand Canyon tour in February. We took off, went over the Hoover Dam, and ran into a wall of thunder clouds that made us turn back. These guys totally invited us to come back, full service. We went up today,...More

I booked the grand celebration tour to the Grand Canyon via helicopter, for my partners 30th birthday. As someone who suffers from severe anxiety, I was dreading going in the helicopter. My nerves were soon helped by our pilot, Michael, who was lovely and friendly....More

Hi there I am thinking about booking The Grand Celebration Tour. Will there be an opportunity where we will get to take a picture from a ledge at a great height? As I understand it we land 4,000 feet below the rim but will we get the opportunity to also see it from a height on ground? (not via helicopter) I'd like to get that standing-on-the-edge picture if that makes sense Thanks,

Do you get to land in the bottom of the grand canyon with meal included too? if so what do you charge per person for this trip and would collection be arranged from the Aria hotel be included? There will be two of us and we are looking at mid June 2017 to do this trip
