We explored our options for helicopter tours of the Grand Canyon while in Vegas. We decided to go with Serenity after checking reviews on TripAdvisor. We really had no idea what awaited us! Jordan picked us up from our hotel in Vegas right on time. We had a very nice black Mercedes van for the ride to Boulder airport. Jordan was a great guy! He was very informative and personable. He made us all feel very welcome! The staff at the hangar was also welcoming and helpful. They got us all checked in and ready for our flight. We were beginning to feel like we had made a great choice in choosing Serenity based on what we had seen so far! We got loaded into the helicopter and met the pilot, Mike "Mad Dog" Davis. We loved him! Hey was awesome with my son, had a great sense of humor, was very knowledgeable about the canyon and surrounding areas. He really educated us on the trip! He also had great taste in music! He really opened up our horizons with his customized playlist that he played while showing us some of the most spectacular sights on earth, from a vantage point that many have never experienced! He was also an amazing pilot! We can't sing his praises enough! We highly recommend doing this tour! Serenity and Mad Dog are the only way to go! Not only was he great in every other way, he was also very kind and understanding and a true professional! I had a little problem on the way back. I am prone to motion sickness, which I didn't share with our pilot! I was doing "ok" for most of the trip, BUT I was feeling ready to get set back down on the ground. Mad Dog told my son that he would try to find him some wildlife to see along Lake Mead. That kept me distracted also from feeling sickly. He found us some wild horses running in the desert! We couldn't see them very well, so he swooped down to show us a better view! It was so breathtaking!! I am so thankful we had the opportunity to see that sight, but I got sick! Instead of just asking for a bag, I tried to hold it, without much luck! Sorry if that's TMI! Mike was so kind about it, he didn't make me feel bad at all, even though he got splattered! If you happen to have a problem with motion sickness, DON'T let it stop you from experiencing this!! It was marvelous! I'd do it again in a minute, sickness and all! My only regret is not saying something about needing a bag, and making a mess! Just don't try to be strong and think you can keep it under control, like I did! Keep a bag close by, so you don't put yourself through any embarrassment or the other passengers through it either! Thank you ALL so much!

We took the sunset tour with canyon landing and dinner with Mike "Mad Dog" Davis and let me just say, it was the experience of a lifetime! His unique and personal style of tour was AWESOME! He is very knowledgeable about the area and gave us so much more than just a helicopter tour. We highly recommend this company and tour! We would give them more than 5 stars if we could!

Had an amazing flight with my partner with Mad Dog as our pilot, got picked up by an amazing Mercedes blacked luxury bus with drinks, iPads and Jordan as our driver. Arrived at the airport and got a decent brief and more drinks, walked out onto the runway and boarded our flight where we met our pilot Mad Dog. Very knowledgeably guy and pointed out all the interested features of the Canyon. His piloting skills were amazing. One of the passengers puked up on the way back and he handled it like a true professional. This small family run business is the way to go. My advice, get the USB of the journey as well, saves you taking photos and lets you enjoy the flight.

We were picked up right on time by an immaculate Mercedes bus with iPads at each seat. The driver was courteous, knowledgeable and helpful. Our check-in at their heliport site couldn't have been smoother, and again the staff was exceptional. The flight itself was incredible. Our pilot, Cole, had over 15 years’ experience and it showed. He was so nice and really knew his stuff. All in all, it was a wonderful experience and I'd highly recommend them.

The whole trip from the hotel pick up to the flight to the drop off these guys did a great job making you feel comfortable. The pilot was very knowledgeable and gave us a smooth ride to the landing spot. The pilot did a good job making sure everyone got great views of the hoover dam and got through the canyon super smoothly. The views were magnificent.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Grand Canyon tour with Mike "Maddog" Davis at Serenity Helicopters. This was no regular fly over. Mike was entertaining, from the minute we stepped aboard. He started the flight with music from Top Gun - Danger Zone. While it was a little cheesy, it certainly got the adrenaline flowing. Mike is extremely knowledgeable about the GC, how it was formed, the wildlife and surrounding areas. We learned so much and loved landing on the floor. The snack lunch was great with healthy options, drink of our choice and refreshing. The office and staff were all first class and very friendly and helpful. Jermone picked us up from the Vegas strip and was equally friendly. We'll certainly do this again if we are in the area. It was a splurge, but something we'll save up for and take our kids back.

I spent weeks researching flight companies. So glad I did. Serenity Helicopters offer a superb, very smooth and well run service that is much more personal than a lot of the other companies. I cannot fault them from initial contact to the flight itself. The whole experience is perfect. The ground staff kept me informed at all stages throughout. The collection from your hotel was exactly on the time I was quoted, and the driver Mico was superb and very friendly. The Pilot Mike (mad dog) Davies was excellent, offering lots of information throughout the flight. A truly amazing experience. A must do on your list when in Vegas. I would highly recommend this company. Well done all at Serenity Helicopter Tours.

Absolutely remarkable from start to finish! Couldn't have been more entertaining, enjoyable or informative if they tried! Mad-dog was the absolute man!

I generally take helicopter tours when travelling to new areas and I have to say that this was BY FAR the most entertaining one ever! Captain Mike "Mad Dog" Davis is awesome! Instead of listening to an old, worn video, we were fully engaged in conversation by the captain and he was hilarious! He made sure to forewarn us of expected turbulence in specific areas where it's common and his enthusiasm for the geology of the area was obvious. Ask for him by name when reserving; you won't be disappointed.

I have flown with Serenity multiple times and have never been disappointed. This is the best way to see the canyon. Mike "Maddog" Davis makes it fun and is full of cool facts about the history of the Dam and the Canyon. Awesome indie playlist throughout. The staff is super friendly and welcoming. We had a blast and highly recommend! Way better than flying with the bigger companies, less crowded and a more personal experience.
