If you see a storm in the distance opt out

Considering we thought we were going to die, I wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone if the weather looks iffy. Our pilot was the only 1 out of the several others that took off shortly after us who thought it would be safe to fly into a thunderstorm & land in the Grand Canyon. It was so windy that I had to steady myself (I'm not petite, 5'9" & 150 lbs.) It was terrifying to be flying in the canyon in such high winds & thunderstorms. Not sure why this pilot was allowed to take such a risk with 6 passengers on board.

The smile on my wife’s face as we took off and stayed throughout the experience and even after landing back at the heliport. Our pilot also did a wonderful job of pointing out highlights and providing context about what we were seeing. And yes, you also get a flyover of Hoover Dam and the Strip.
