My wife and I went on the 40 minute helicopter ride and loved every minute of it. The check-in process was fast and easy, and our pilot Will did a great job of flying and narrating the tour. A very smooth and stunningly beautiful trip through the Rocky Mountains and Pike Peak.

This was an amazing adventure! We took the evening flight for 30 minutes. The views were stunning and Will was an awesome pilot. We would definitely do this again.

I surprised my fiance with a helicopter ride with Colorado Vertical Adventures and it was just a great experience. The ride itself was really thrilling with an unbeatable view of the Royal Gorge & its bridge as well as Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains in the distance. The drive from areas like Colorado Springs is easy. The staff was... More

We took my son on a flight for his 8th birthday and loved every second of it. He got to sit in the front seat, we listened to Christmas music while taking in the beautiful night sky and lights of the holiday. Our pilot was wonderful! He was great with kids, provided historical overviews of some of the main attractions... More

This is the second time we've flown with these guys, and we'll be back for more. Their customer service is great, and our pilot Eli has both times been willing to customize our ride- we're more interested in the technical side of flying rather than the scenery (although the scenery is excellent as well) and he dished out a ton...

I took my grandchildren on an evening holiday helicopter ride. Found this tour over Colorado Springs better than a holiday helicopter tour over Denver. The Broadmoor, Seven Falls, etc., from the sky were breathtaking!! Our pilot, Will, did a great job!! Will recommend to friends! Will also does Pikes Peak from the air where wild animals are easily seen. This... More

We saw the 'heli tour' sign outside the office and took a spontaneous short flight with Eli. Definitely a good impulse decision - the views were great, Eli was calm, professional and knowledgeable. If you're new to helicopter rides this would be an excellent first experience. Absolutely recommend to others.

My 14 yo daughter was in stunned silence when we landed. How rare is that? LOL We went while the Christmas lights where up. The views are what dreams are made of. There are no words to describe how beautiful flying at night over the city with lights appears. The staff are very professional and very accommodating. This is an... More
