Everything are memorable except for the helicopter ride...They should of tell me in advance that it need to be cancelled because of the wind condition insread i have to go to their place just to tell me its cancelled....my suggestion is know the weather condition first before accepting the helicopter ride.. special mention to Eli without him I am totally disappointed with this tour..Thanks to him
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Thank you for your review and your comments about Eli. Yes, it's a disappointment to us also when the weather doesn't cooperate. In the desert it can come up to gusting and dangerous conditions is a short period of time, and helicopters aren't designed for those conditions. Therefore, customer safety is paramount over making money. Please come back and visit with us again. Very best regards, Will & Donna Tryon - Owners

The helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon was great!!! Sorry to say it was only 20 minutes to take pictures but lucky for us it was a beautiful day to fly and take pictures.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
Hi Terell, Thank you for the review. Yes, the flight over the rim and landing on the bottom of the Grand Canyon is a little short, but a real eye opener! But, it certainly is a chance to take images at the bottom that only a very few on planet earth have taken. The ground tour plus the helicopter allows for stops at Hoover Dam, the 900 Year old Joshua Tree Forest, Eagle Point, Guano Point, the Indian Village as well as the Skywalk, if you dare. So glad you had a fun day. Thank you so much, Will & Donna Tryon - Owners

Our driver was very good at explaining details of the area while we were on our way to the Grand Canyon. Clayton was polite, attentive and funny! We stopped at several spots and were able to take pics and hang out for a moment. Giving 4 stars because the helicopter ride was not the 45 minutes they announced, it was 35. Granted it was super hot but still they should stick to what they offer. Overall a good experience.

Hi, Thank you for your review and we are happy you had a good time with Clayton. He's a lot of fun. Please let me know who told you the helicopter flight was 45 minutes. Thank you so much, Will Tryon - Owner
