We chose the dinner tour which we knew would be a group flight/dinner in the Grand Canyon for us and up to two other couples.
A large comfy van picked us up at the designated location across from our hotel and we met our fellow helicopter travelers. As it turned out, we had a young Russian couple from Canada and a mother and adult daughter from England as our travel companions and everyone promptly began to get to know each other.
We were a friendly fun group of six including Jim and I and I remain a firm believer that if you have great traveling partners you can’t go wrong.
The safety video was soon pushed to the back of our minds as we took off up into the blue sky and soared over the desert toward the Grand Canyon and oh-yes....we definitely were flying over water. We were accompanied by a second helicopter carrying a group who were planning to have a champagne-toast in the canyon.
As we jumped out of the helicopter, we saw a few tables with sun-umbrellas scattered across the scrub dotted space and soon our pilot/dinner host, had our table decorated with flowers and set for dining with a table cloth lovely linen napkins and wine glasses.
Not surprisingly, Matteo also turned out to be a fabulous maître d’ for our sunset canyon dinner. A true man of many talents! We all swapped stories while eating dinner and too soon it was time to leave our stunning view to return to the city.
