Avoid the back seat...

Avoid the back seat behind the pilot, not a good seat. Most of the beautiful sights are on the right side of the helicopter.

I am convinced that if you haven’t seen The Grand Canyon from the air- then you haven’t really seen it. Our tour was expensive but worth every single penny! The views are beyond description and beyond comparison. We have done many helicopter tours all over the US in every city we visit. We even did one that flew us over and under the Golden Gate Bridge. This tour however- beat every single one of them- hands down! It was the best and our absolute favorite of all the helicopter tours we have done. The helicopter was one of the best we have been in. Full view windows and awesome seats for everyone Our pilot- Forrest- was absolutely the best! He was very knowledgeable and personable. He really made the tour complete. Thank you Forrest for such an amazing once in a lifetime experience! The experience and the memories will stay with us forever! Note to readers- don’t forget to tip your pilots! Trust me- they earn it!
