Exceptional experience, impeccable welcome and simple and clear instructions. I spent a fabulous amount in the Grand Canyon and the view from above makes it all magical. The Eliott driver was super nice, I think just like me the other tourists will keep a very good memory. Experience to be renewed if the opportunity arises.

Unforgettable experience .. taking the helicopter ride is already worth the money but getting inside the grand canyon is a unique experience in the world !! I highly recommend !!

The only concern was you keep sending me an email with change of location when in fact there is only 1 location for the helicopters

Our pilot, Jake, was great. The flight was smooth & perfect for our family adventure.

was great in a smaller vehicle great guide and the best lunch !!!!!
