The staff were friendly and excited for us to take our first helicopter ride. Both pilots were amazing during our flight and ensured we knew what we were seeing and were comfortable with the whole process. Would totally recommend this company for a tour of the red rocks around Sedona!

Jaw-dropping Gorgeous

Our pilot was knowledgeable and pleasant. The people at the office were friendly and thoughtful about safety. The staff was accommodating to our schedule when out flight was canceled on the first day for safety reasons. We had a wonderful flight the second day. The scenery was jaw-dropping gorgeous and worth every penny.

Our Pilot, Christian was amazing at describing the terrain, pointing out the highlights and explaining some of the history. This is a true bucket list item that should not be missed. He also gave us more ideas that allowed us to change some of our plans to make our visit to Sedona even better!

Visuals, closeness to the scenery, great narration of the history and pointing out sights of early dwellings that are hard to see from the ground. Very smooth ride even though we did have some winds. Music was very complementary to the tour.
