We flew the "Majestic" package. It is a 25-30 minute flight out of Tusuyan Arizona across the canyon to the north rim and back. Would do it again but would request a front seat next time.
Hi. Where did you buy this helicopter tour? Do they take you from Las Vegas? If not, how do you get to the airport to take the helicopter?. Thanks a lot.
