We had a wonderful experience in our 30-minute helicopter tour over Canyonlands. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Jon, our pilot, was very knowledgeable about the area, an excellent pilot, and friendly. I would highly recommend this experience when visiting Moab. This was a first helicopter ride for my husband and I. Our tour happened to take place on my birthday, due to reschedule because of extreme heat the day before, so the staff made it extra special with some non-alcoholic champagne before our flight - they really went the extra mile to make our experience unforgettable.

Took my 11-year-old and he loved it. It was his first time flying and Jon did a great job flying and explaining the features around Moab and the parks. If you've only flown on planes, helicopters are completely different and a great way to experience Utah.

We had an amazing time on our helicopter ride and will do it again. We were awestruck looking over the canyons, arches, hoodoos and the Colorado River. If you're tossing this tour around as an idea - do it!!

The entire experience was great! The pilot was super nice and knowledgeable. We were lucky and had a gorgeous day. Absolutely worth!

Pilot was very informative. We were able to see amazing sights from a different height. The views were amazing. Worth every penny!
