We had never been in a helicopter before nor had we seen the Grand Canyon. I do NOT advise others to do what we did, hope we could get on a flight without making reservations ahead. But we got very lucky and were able to get a flight. All at Papillon were very friendly and got us on board and... More

The Thai wife, my brother, his wife and I had our first flight over the Grand Canyon. After a bit of research we chose the Grand Celebration tour through Papillon. The online booking process was simple and the followup emails and call effective. We chose to drive out to the Boulder City Airport from Las Vegas rather than take the... More

We took the early morning Grand Celebration Tour. Pick up from hotel was super early and we were transported out to Boulder City to check-in. We choose to upgrade to two front seats and 'm so glad we did. The flight out to the Canyon was just spectacular with views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. We touched down in... More

The flight to the Grand Canyon was amazing and Papillion did a great job. I must admit lots of people recommended Maverick rather than Papillion. Papillion were a lot cheaper than Maverick which did make me wonder if they offered the same service but I shouldnt have worried they were amazing. Marcus our pilot was really good and answered all... More

Picked up in a stretch limo and taken to the airstrip. The helicopter flight was amazing flying over the Hoover Dam, landing for lunch in the canyon and then flying back over the Vegas Strip.

A helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon with landing was our main reason to visit Las Vegas and Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters really nailed it. Our pilot/guide was Jeff from Bolivia and he was excellent. Great pilot, tons of personality and did a great job of making everyone comfortable and handling the flight with ease. We took the Sunset trip... More

Grand Canyon flight with champagne picnic. Just do it. It is the trip of a lifetime. My wife was a touch nervous to begin with, but as soon as we were 20 feet in the air this turned to sheer delight. TIP: Book the front seats. Better view and more leg room.

Everything was perfect, and I do mean everything, from the glorious weather, spectacular scenery, attitude of the staff, duration of flight and promptness of the service. In fact, as I went with a school friend, I now have a very envious husband & a good excuse to do it again ;)
