    Hey Lisa

    I worked for Maverick Helicopters at the GC for a while and while not the only company they do have the best service and the best no accident record.

    If you have the money do the 45 min tour its $240 and you get to see parts of the canyon most don’t. The 25 min flight is still good just cost $180 huge difference if price is an issue. Tell them you also heard about a $10 cupon from one of the hotels and they will honor it. Shush don’t tell them I told you Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    I did the helicopter tour when I was over there NYE this year – it seriously was the best $300 I ever spent. We landed in the canyon & had a champagne breakfast. Seriously do it! The ride out to Boulder City airport was about 45 mins.
