“If there is a helicopter tour company that does helicopter tours out to the Grand Canyon that is better than Serenity, I’d be amazed. The company is first class right from the get go. The people who I talked to on the telephone were friendly and super helpful. We got picked up at our hotel right on time in a beautiful Mercedes Benz mini-bus limousine by Adrian who was a terrific driver. He talked to us about places we were going in Las Vegas and made some good suggestions about places to go. Think high back leather seats, iPads at each seat and total comfort. The Canyon was beautiful. This company really knows how to treat their guests. Everything is first class and you will not be disappointed.” – Traveleasier

“Serenity was great from start to finish. We flew with Cole and he was a great pilot when we sat for lunch he made an effort to ask us lots of questions and even wished me and another guest happy birthday, which was a nice touch. It was a totally brilliant experience and we highly recommend this to anyone who is thinking about going. We also asked Matt lots of questions about places to go and he gave us brilliant advice! Thanks to everyone for making our day.” – Chezza1985

“From the moment they picked us up, to dropping us off, everything went perfectly. Views from the Helicopter were great, while Mike kept us entertained with a soundtrack and explanations of the sights. Landing in the Canyon is a must as this was the highlight of the trip. Of note as well, were the staff at the airport, very professional answering all of our nervous flyer questions and providing refreshments. The two young fellows that drove us to and from the airport kept us entertained and told us about various favorite spots, not to be missed in Vegas (and great advice it was!). Overall, just a great experience for my entire family, not to be missed!” – obrien1
