If you are looking for something out of the ordinary this is the adventure to try! This was very helpful after viewing the parks from the ground. We got to see some of the Canyonlands which was spectacular to say the least. Our pilot, Ben, was informative and put even the most skittish flyer at ease. I have never flown in a helicopter and sitting in the front seat was so relaxing with him beside me pointing out all the highlights of the area. Worth the money and more…..would do it again in a second!
