Frustrated at the beginning but enjoyed the experience in the end.

I gave your a 4/5 because I was frustrated at the beginning. I looked for Viator Helicopters in that street and nobody knew, until someone at Papillon said Viator is an agent. You also did net send me a confirmation email. We were thirty minutes early but we took about 15 minutes moving from helicopter company to company. But after that everything moved very smoothly.

Beautiful day for a flight over the canyon. Angela, our pilot, was great. One of the smoothest helicopter rides I've had of three. It was expensive but unforgettable so worth it

Because of snow and low cloud cover on Monday our helicopter flight had to be rescheduled for Tuesday morning. Papillion Helicopter Tours were great they called us Monday 3 hrs before and were amazing at making sure we got it sorted. Monday Afternoon The Sunset Hummer Tour was amazing our Guide Jerry from Buck Wild Hummer Tours was a Native American not only did we get history about The Grand Canyon we got history about the Native American tribes as well. Watching the sunset was an amazing experience something truly special Tuesday 9am We got to Papillion Helecopter Tours booked in watched a 5 minute safety video and within 15 minutes were up in the air. Our pilot was amazing showing us the Grand Canyon and its beauty. It was a flight to remember If you're going to the Grand Canyon these two excursions are a must.
