    Hey Guys,
    I'm thinking about a helicopter tour to Grand Canyon. Just want to do the ride. No landing, even no limo transportation is needed.

    Can anyone recommend a tour which is worth the money. Actually I'm thinking about Golden Eagle with Strip from Papillon and Silver Cloud Tour from Maverick.

    Think, both flights just go the west rim, or? Never been there before, just visited the south rim by car. Is it worth it?

    Thx for your advise!!! :kiss:

    I did the Grand Canyon trip to the west rim with Maverick about 4 years ago and I would recommend them, they do a few different trips and I did the one where you land in the canyon

    Maverick is far superior with a better safety record and better service. I don't recall the name, but the do have a tour that does not stop or land.

    Here's a video of what to expect from Maverick:

    I did a Maverick tour with pick up and delivery to my hotel. A stop in the canyon with a champagne snack. Great trip pilot was exceptional and I would do it again except I have the been there done that T shirt and trip video.
