Our Pick

The Grand Canyon

High on people's lists already is the Grand Canyon. We believe that there's no better way to see this Natural Wonder of the world that is visited by millions of people every year, than by helicopter.

When you embark on one of the Grand Canyon tour you can choose a tour to suit you. Our favourite tour here though is the Skywalk getaway with Helicopter and Boat Tour which includes.

In a word... no. It's much more dangerous to be in a car and nobody is panicking about hoping in their car to work in the morning so there's no logical reason to be afraid of helicopter rides.

Most helicopter tour providers offer insurance as a public liability insurance so it's not necessary the majority of the time.

Many people want to fly at first light, which happens about 20 minutes before sunrise. At this time, you'll get a magical sky, and a peaceful experience, but it does require a very early start – sometimes as early as 4am!
