“Trip was flawless from start to finish, pick up was on time, and lift to and from the hotel was really laid back, ipads in the van are a nice touch, even though the trip to boulder city isn’t overly long from the strip. All staff were accommodating on arrival and friendly. The helicopter ride itself was made by Mike ‘maddog’ Davis who clearly is passionate about what he does, loved his insight into how the canyon was formed, and his open mindedness. I would happily recommend the trip with serenity to anyone.” – RobinAr95
“What an amazing trip – the whole team were first class from pick up to drop off – the girls in the office friendly and professional and Jim the pilot was the best. His knowledge and the way he guided us through the flight was first class he was entertaining and informative – the picnic breakfast was just right – I am a nervous flyer but 2 minutes into the flight I was totally at ease – definitely recommend.” – Susan T
“Travelled to the Grand Canyon, down into the west rim, had a picnic and a beer and absorbed the amazing views. Our pilot Christy was fantastic, knowledgeable, witty and really ensured we had a great time. I cannot recommend this company enough, great pick up, cold drinks a plenty, iPads to fool with on the way to the helipad. Has really made our holiday. Thanks again Serenity Helicopters.” – Mark P
