We (the wife and I) stopped at several of the pull outs on our way prior to taking the flight and there is absolutely no comparison for what you can see from the air it definitely was money well spent

Stunning views of Grand Canyon

This helicopter tour was fabulous. The views are spectacular and breathtaking flying into the Grand Canyon. The ride was very smooth and our pilot was friendly, informative and professional. It was definitely a thrilling adventure. Unfortunately the high winds were a factor and our tour operator offered a reduced tour time from 45 to 25 min for $30 less (which we found to be bare minimal and had hoped for a better price reduction). Alternate options included to reschedule for a diff date or refund. We opted for the shorter tour since we could not reschedule to a different date. One thing that bothered us was that we would need to call Viator for our refund and the helicopter check-in agent told us it would not be easy and would take at least an hour on the phone and basically wished us good luck with the lack of service by Viator. We hope to call once we get home and have a good experience w our refund.
