My son, Eric Slayer lived at the Canyon. He took me on the helicopter ride over the Canyon, it was amazing. The beauty there is just breathe taking. Everyone there was so friendly. I'll be glad to visit again in April.

Words cannot describe to moment you enter THE canyon... it is beyond awesome! The 40 minute flight is fabulous - you don't feel rushed and you have time to absorb the natural beauty of this fantabulous place. Make sure this is on your bucket list!

The only way to see the Grand Canyon is from the air so I would highly recommend booking a helicopter flight to see an experience it.

We flew the "Majestic" package. It is a 25-30 minute flight out of Tusuyan Arizona across the canyon to the north rim and back. Would do it again but would request a front seat next time.
