We took a ride through the canyons with Michael as our pilot and were treated to grand vistas as well as history and geography information that made the ride more complete. Michael was extremely professional and made our experience completely comfortable and fun! Totally worth the money!

The staff at Gateway Canyons tours are amazing! I have a fear of flying and some years ago had a bad experience with a helicopter ride, however my husband loves helicopters. I explained my fear to Sandy and she was amazing. She took a lot of extra time with me over a period of several days to explain their approach... More

This is one excursion that is worth the extra money!! For a chopper ride it is comparably priced considering the elevation and terrain. The helicopter is air conditioned, with large windows, comfortable seats, and very spacious. I took my husband for our 7th anniversary and this was a gift he will never forget! Our pilot was friendly, helpful, informed, and... More

Five of my female friends chose to be brave and schedule a helicopter tour. From the friendliness and professionalism of the pilot, he set our fears at ease by describing everything to expect during boarding and the actual flight. (Plus he was very discreet when weighing us in......he did not even gasp...what politeness!)

My son is an aspiring filmmaker and had the opportunity to video and photograph footage that will be a part of his next movie project. Do... More

After hosting a conference at Gateway Canyons resort, thanks to the generosity of a friend, my wife and I where able to accompany him and his wife on the air tour around the canyons in late March.

Gateway Canyons Air Tours is located on-site at Gateway Canyon Resort. It has a fantastic range of air tour options of the local canyons and monuments. Of course, the best way to see anything is by air. In addition, I highly recommend a helicopter transport between Grand Junction and Gateway, which is normally an hour drive, can be done in... More

The tours either to the San Juan Mountain loop or to the Arches and Canyon Lands with both flying over the Colorado National Monument give you a view and feeling that can only be described as seeing is believing.

My brother and sister-in-law gave my parents and me this tour as a gift, and it's one of the best gifts I've ever received. We flew over the canyons of the beautiful Colorado National Monument, and beyond, toward the LaSalle Mountains, and even though I've lived there a good part of my life, seeing the landscape from this vantage point...

Our kids bought us this Air Tour for our 25th wedding anniversary, which was spent at the beautiful Gateway Canyons Resort. Unlike many tours in which you wonder if the arrangements will even be made, this tour operator called the day before to confirm the trip. We were then picked up promptly by Miffie Blozvich, the Marketing and Development Director,... More
