Rated 5 out of 5 by Morris73 Great Way to See the Grand Canyon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our helicopter tour of the canyon. Our pilot was great and very informative of the history and landscape. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DRitter Must take this adventure!
Everything about this this trip was top notch including the limo rides to/from the hotel, the customer service at the lobby and our great pilot, Tom. This is a must do activity in Las Vegas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mistafrank Definitely worth doing at least once!
After reading other reviews before booking our helicopter tour, we chose Grand Canyon Tours. The other options (Maverick, Mustang, Sundance) also looked good but Grand Canyon offered the roomier helicopter and didn't have any previous incidents or accidents.
Originally, we scheduled the 'air tour' only. However, nobody else booked the same tour at the same time so Grand Canyon called to tell us we couldn't be accommodated since there were no other parties traveling. Before we could get upset, Grand Canyon offered to upgrade our tour at no charge to the tour landing in the Grand Canyon for lunch. We had the same amount of air time (about 90 minutes) and got to land in the canyon and walk around so it was a definite plus! We got picked up by the limo driver precisely at 3:40p like we were told. The helicopter was great. Seats were comfortable. The pilot was friendly and professional. Unfortunately, my headset didn't work on the way out to the Grand Canyon so I missed all the information about the sites below but on the way back he switched out the headset so the return was more enjoyable. The best seats are up front and against the side windows (if you are fortunate enough to get them) but its all determined by your weight so you may or may not get the best seating. My girlfriend had a tough time seeing since she was stuck in the back middle seat. Something you'll deal with no matter which operator you pick. Overall even though this is expensive, it's definitely worth doing at least once and far better than taking the bus tour to Hoover Dam. Great experience with Grand Canyon.
