The helicopter flight out to the Grand Canyon is about 45 minutes, views are beautiful. They land you in the bottom next to river and provide a picnic meal. The flight back was in the evening and sunset was spectacular. Very relaxing time.

Professional, informative, breathtaking views, loads of fun. From the limo ride to the airport, the check in and tour information, the pilot’s friendliness and the snacks provided at the canyon, we were very impressed. Will highly recommend this company!
