The whole experience was amazing. The flight out to the canyon was awe inspiring. Once in the canyon we have no words to describe how beautiful it was.

Grand Canyon with champagne
Lynne_W, Sept 2023
The tour was very well Organised and everything ran very smooth. The views were amazing once landed in the Grand Canyon.
Best experience ever
Ema_G, Sept 2023
The views were breathtaking and our pilot was fantastic. We had a great group in the helicopter with us.
It was a great experience!
Rex_R, Sept 2023
All the staff was great! They were professional and available to answer questions. The pilot was informative and made you feel confident and comfortable. The views were incredible! However when in flight the helicopter was pretty warm even with the vents. It would have been nice if the helicopters route back to the base was the same one it took in. We didn't see much of the canyon nor the dam or reservoir. And it made it difficult for passengers sitting in the middle two seats in back to get a good view.
Logistical nightmare. Great pilot.
Margaret_B, Sept 2023
Initially this experience was very frustrating. We were not informed ahead of time that our tour time was changed. Glad I called to check, otherwise I’m not sure what would have happened!! Pick up was a nightmare- it was 30 minutes late and unclear instructions where to meet the shuttle. We weren’t told that the flight was from Boulder City, not Las Vegas, so it required an extra 40 minute trip by bus to the airport. Our pilot, Cole was great and did a good job of narrating the flight. The short champagne and snack stop was good too. I would not fly with Papillon again. Having done other helicopter tours in and around Las Vegas, I know there are better choices.
Melissa_F, Sept 2023
First time in a helicopter. I'm terrified of heights and get motion sick easily, but this ride was thoroughly enjoyable! Smooth ride and landing, great views through all the windows - even one on the floor in front! Thought our "light" snack would be cheese and crackers, but it was much more, as you can see in the pic. This was a "splurge" to celebrate our 40th anniversary. A wonderful way to celebrate!
Antonio_C, Sept 2023
Everything is unforgettable! Fabulous! Words, photos, and videos don’t express the feeling to be at the helicopter with the wonderful views. Pilots are also very good. Pickup service as well. Everybody is great!
Helicopter over Grand Canyon

William_M, Sept 2023
What a wonderful experience. We couldn’t be happier with experience. A must do! Captain was extremely helpful and also made a friend along the way. Thanks for the great memory
Wonder of the world - worth it
Karima_S, Sept 2023
Very much pinch yourself moment seeing the Grand Canyon in all its vastness. The glass of champagne was not supplied which would have given it a bit more ooomph. We went home with a compensation bottle! Loved having Kylie as our pilot (go the girls!)
Anthony_M, Sept 2023
I cannot put into words the experience. It's more than I expected, but I wasn't sure what to expect. A great team that's been around for some years now, have put together an experience like no other.
Great Tour!
Anthony_S, Sept 2023
Great Heli tour to the grand canyon. Matt was our pilot and was amazing and easy to talk too. The landing spot in the canyon was a great place and with really great views. Just wish the stop was a little longer but still well worth it.
Would do again
Mark_W, Sept 2023
first time on helicopter really enjoyed experience felt really comfortable in helicopter and relaxed
Definitely a must do!
Kelly_B, Sept 2023
The Grand Canyon Helicopter tour was amazing. We had Greg as our pilot who was very knowledgeable and gave us great commentary along the way. The picnic was beautiful. We loved the whole experience, except for finding out we had to pay an additional $35 fuel surcharge per person upon arrival, i thought that was a bit much considering the cost of our tickets. However apart from that it was very enjoyable.
Helicopter tour Grand Canyon
Valerie_S, Sept 2023
The whole experience was excellent, made all the better by the warm & friendly pilot Jimmy. Would thoroughly recommend this trip, it was just amazing.
Best helicopter ride ever!
Antoinette_B, Sept 2023
Jimmy is freakin’ awesome! Best helicopter ride ever! He was so informative and had us laughing which really eased our nervousness. If you can choose your pilot, choose Jimmy! Definitely worth the money spent and if you can, upgrade to ride in the front! Worth every penny!
A must do, fast easy way to see the Grand Cannon
Adrienne_P, Aug 2023
Company was well organised, stunning views and Sam had a good knowledge. Also the man that pick us up gave us tips on where to eat at a great price.
Absolutely brilliant!!
Anthony_M, Aug 2023
The tour was fantastic and sunset on the way back to Las Vegas was just amazing. Jimmy the pilot was a great guy too.
JASON_P, Aug 2023
The canyon and views are breath-taking!!!!! Out Pilot Greg was very interactive, fantastic! Once in a lifetime experience!
Worst experience!!!! Do not book!!!
Savannah_D, Aug 2023
This was the absolute worst experience my boyfriend have ever had while traveling. We were picked up from our hotel in an old bus that had no air conditioning. The driver was rude and yelled at everyone on the bus to shut up. We proceeded to ride all over Las Vegas to every single hotel to pick up other people. We were all about to suffocate from having no air and we were all sweating profusely. We drove for over an hour out to the helicopter just for them to tell us we couldn't go because of the weather. They then told us they would give us a refund, but never got our money back.
Great adventure
Darren_C, Aug 2023
Our pilot Robert was incredible! Very interesting and informative and communication was great. All in all it was created memories of a lifetime for my son and me. Thanks Papillon and Robert!!!!
