Increible Experience

What an incredible experience! This was our first visit to The Grand Canyon, and also our first Helicopter flight! The whole experience is something we will always treasure and the highlight of our Holiday this year. Our pilot Maureen was extremely professional and friendly and empathised with those who were nervous about the experience. We were all impressed with the precise control she had over the aircraft - all in a days work for a professional Helicopter pilot I suppose, but nevertheless something which gave us confidence that we were in safe hands. Maureen was very knowledgable about the area we were flying over and keenly responded to our questions and observations. Her overall relaxed and lighthearted demeanour helped us to relax and enjoy the ride.

Amazing views of the Canyon

I am petrified of heights and just didn't think I would be able to go with my hubby to do the helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. However I took the plunge and booked with Papillon Helicopter tours. It was just under 300 dollars each but I have to say it was well worth it. The pilot was great and really entertaining putting us at ease. We flew over the Hoover Dam, Lake Meade and the Canyon. The flight was really comfortable and had great views so you could easily take as many photos as you want. A small mini bus picked us up from our hotel which was the Encore and after picking a few more couples up it took around an hour to get to the heliport. We then had a good 1 hour and 10 mins flying time then we were taken back to our hotel. A great experience.

Apr, 2016Great way to view the Grand Canyon!

We took a tour of the Grand Canyon with Papillon during our visit to Las Vegas. We'd never been to the Grand Canyon before, and this was DEFINITELY the way to see it! The pilot was super friendly and explained everything that was happening and what we were seeing, and she had a great sense of humor, made the ride really fun. Got to see Lake Meade and the Hoover Dam from above as well as views of the canyon that we never would have gotten any other way. Wonderful experience!
