Paillion helicopters were fantastic. The staff and pilot were just so helpfull and informative. I would thoroughly recommend this trip (Majestic tour) and this company. Initially it seems expensive, but its worth every penny.

A top flight. The pilot understood his job and flown safely over the canyon. He even played the explanations in our language. We can only recommend the flight.

Spur-of-the-moment decision for us, and really glad we took this tour. There are so many great vistas along the rim, but to see the canyon from above was spectacular.

If you are departing on a tour by helicopter from the Las Vegas area, then you will be returned by helicopter. Is there a particular tour you are interested in?
