The weather did not allow the helicopter ride (storms) so we were re-scheduled for the following morning to an early airplane flight. It took us a couple of hours to negotiate the change and get a slot assigned but the provider finally got us in a plane and we could enjoy the Grand Canyon.

Worth every penny! Our pilot Tristan was very informative and showed us so many sights within the 30 minutes. My partner isn’t the biggest fan of heights but he went and truly enjoyed it and would recommend anybody who isn’t keen on it to do. The views from the ground are nothing compared to the sky.

This was an awesome experience!!! The soundtrack they put together for the flight is part epic, part calming. The pilot did an amazing job. ObvIously seeing the Grand Canyon was majestic. Absolutely zero complaints. I want to helicopter everywhere now. XD
