Going to the Grand Canyon West Rim was a once a lifetime experience. So happy I faced my fears and walk the Skywalk. The view was spectacular, I was in awe. Our bus driver/Manager Felix was the best, he gave some knowledgeable information on which place is the best to eat. I recommend this tour 100%.
This was our first visit to Las Vegas and we were so happy that we chose this tour! Although it was 9 hours long we did not feel the time as our Tour Guide Tom, made it so interesting and enjoyable. The Hummer arrived at our hotel on the dot and the ride was smooth, believe it or not! The Hoover dam experience was great! The Grand Canyon and Skywalk Tour was amazing! and the visit to the Reserve where we had lunch was perfect to top it off. We completed the tour ahead of time and were safely returned to our hotel half hour early!. We would highly recommend this tour as it gives a hands-on experience and the Tour guide was excellent!
We were several times at the Grand Canyon South Rim. Was the first time at the West Rim - and it was really great. The trip from Las Vegas is just approx. 2:30 hours. The skywalk is just one of the highlights. Also Guano point is great there are shuttle buses available because you have a beautiful view of the Colorado river!
The bus driver was very nice and gave us a lot of additional information. Lunch was ok, too. I would recommend visiting both sites South and West Rim.
Thank you Ingo, Germany.
Great skywalk was awesome be prepared to wait in a long queue to get your photo taken at skywalk Hoover dam was impressive views of Grand Canyon unforgettable
This was a long day and didn't help with the fact that the tour company organising the trip called us at 4.30 in the morning to make sure we were awake and to be ready for 6am and to be 10 minutes early and then they were over half an hour late for picking us up - so this didn't get the day off to a good start.
Once at the Grey Line main depot a talk was given and you were then split into different groups, depending upon which trip you had booked. Once at the depot there were facilities for drinks and to get some breakfast, which it doesn't tell you this on the booking sheet.
It's quite a few hours on the coach to Hoover Dam and then the Grand Canyon, but our guide Trevor was brilliant and funny and made the trip go quite quick.
The Grand Canyon is amazing and the views from the skywalk are also fantastic - the only downside is that you can not take your own cameras with you so if you want photos you have to have them taken with the guys that are present on the skywalk. They take plenty of photos and have some good options available. We had our photos taken with them and got all the photos sent to us on email for around 68.
We had a good lunch and a day that we'll never forget - would recommend.
What an experience!. First stop, The Hoover Dam, which is part of the trip, interesting to see, you get about 30 minutes to walk across it and take pictures which is sufficient. Then onto The Grand Canyon. This is definitely one of the wonders of the world, mother nature at her best!.The coach ride was good it takes about 2 hours from Vegas and the air conditioning is a god send as it can very very hot here.There are shuttle buses to take you to 3 different locations around the canyon and you can choose all or just one of them it is your choice. You get about 3 hours to enjoy all the wonders the canyon has to offer. The
skywalk experience is a must even for people like me with a fear of heights!, they don't rush you to get off and you get your photo taken over looking the canyon. Amazing!!. The tour guides at the canyon are very helpful and friendly, you are left to wander around on your own but they are there to help if needed. Would definitely recommend this tour as part of your Californian experience.
over looking the canyon!. You are given lunch at one of the sights which was good
The tour was awesome. The Grand Canyon was exciting, breathtaking, and fun. I totally enjoyed the Skywalk at the Grand Canyon. This tour made my Vegas vacation very interesting. I highly recommend this tour it was a lifetime experience.
OMG!! The tour was great from start to finish. I don't have enough space to write down everything. Check-in process- Easy and professional. Bus Driver- hillarious. We laughed going and coming. Hoover Dam- Quick but great. Grand Canyon/Skywalk- Excellent, professional (staff), and AMAZING.
This tour was great and definitely worth the money! My friend and I had talked about renting a car to visit the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam, but didn't want to make the long drive by ourselves. This tour was the perfect alternative! We visited the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. It had a more natural appearance due to the lack of fences/roped off areas that are found in other parts of the Grand Canyon. Our tour guide, Thomas, was awesome! He was very knowledgeable and entertaining during the long bus ride. The Skywalk provided a unique view. While pictures were taken of you on the skywalk for purchase, I did not like that you were not allowed to bring your own camera up there. The tour was said to depart at 7:30 and while it did depart from the company at 7:30, hotel pickup time was 6:05. This ended up being great because it allowed for plenty of time exploring the Grand Canyon, but I would have like to have known originally that pickup would be an hour and a half earlier. I do wish that the Hoover Dam part of the tour was a bit more extensive. Overall this was a great tour and I would highly recommend the tour and the tour guide, Thomas!
We loved the trip to both the Hoover Dam and the Grand Canyon. My only recommendation is that we could have shortened the four hour trip down to one and one-half hours. Maybe there could be a bus to take those who do not want to go up in a helicopter or go out on the skywalk a shorter time frame to return to the hotel. Otherwise, it was wonderful!!!!!
Absolutely fantastic!!! Our Guide Ahmed was brilliant so knowledgeable about about everything the Hoover Dam where we stopped for a quick photo oppurtunity, the Grand Canyon and the Hualapei Tribe all the plants growing in dessert and the local farming. We opted to do the skywalk which due to our early start 6am we were the only ones out on it and thanks to Randy standing right on the edge of the canyon more scary to look at than the skywalk!!! we got some great photos with not too much sky!! we went on this trip as a couple and luckily there was only 1 other couple on it with us and they were also english so we had a lot of laughs with plenty of banter back and forth the Hummer Hoss was really comfortable with loads of room even with 3 adults in the back seat and was always wonderfully cool upon our return out of the 45 degree heat. If i were to return to Vegas and want to book an excursion i would not book with anyone else this was by far the best day of our holiday exceptional.
the tour was fantastic we upgraded to the helicopter and boat when we got there which was well worth it the only downside was with doing this was we were pushed with time , the wait for the chopper was about 50 minutes and then we had to wait for the boat by the time this was all done we had little time for the skywalk and no time for Gunan point which was a shame as this looked fab, if this had been said at time off booking we may off stayed with our original booking , but saying all these points it was still a great day and would recommend the grand canyon to anyone .
We can highly recommend Maverick air and helicopter tours to the Grand Canyon. It was so well organised and all drivers and pilots very professional and punctual. Special thanks to Shermon our pilot who was very personable and professional. Great flying for someone who gets airsickness and kept his lunch down! The skywalk was awesome and so glad we chose to do it. Also the helicopter ride into the canyon was fantastic. Also a very yummy BBQ lunch. Justin our helicopter pilot done a great job and the views of the canyon were just beautiful. It was the highlight of our trip to US.

My girlfriend and I picked the Helicopter Tour with Skywalk option, this is the first time I visit the Grand Canyon and 2nd time for my girlfriend, we have never went onto a helicopter before. First and foremost, our pilot Tony was excellent, beside the fact that he looks like Tom Cruise, he was very nice, humorous, informative and accommodating during the entire trip. He rotates the 7 passengers to ensure everyone get a chance to sit at the front. It was ashamed that we forgot to give him gratitude at the end. This package itself is very great, everything was as described, the only hiccup was the lack of sign of the shuttle pickup area in the hotel, this is probably something that the hotel itself has to work out with all these helicopter companies. As for the tour itself, it was amazing we were very cost conscious and had done a lot of researches to compare different packages/companies, most of the concerns regarding the helicopter skywalk combo are related to the lack of time available at the Skywalk, but we did not find any negative comments on this package and decided to go with it, Viator also offers the best price comparing to other agencies offering the same package. It turns out that we made the right choice, we had a full 2.5 hours to tour around the Skywalk, Eagle Point and Guano Point, we even got tired and burnt enough at the end that we thought about leaving early. I highly recommend this package if you do not want to spend 8-9 hours on the road with the bus tour and if you do want to check out the Skywalk. Please also remember that no camera/phone/GoPro is allowed at the Skywalk, they have staffs to take photos for you at different posts and it costs 17 each if you want a hardcopy.
Great all round trip very well done by grey line tours from a very funny and well informed driver to the actual experience of the Grand Canyon and skywalk would highly recommend..
Grand Canyon is worth seeing!!!! Enough to see everything, strongly recommend the skywalk.
It was a great trip! Bus ride was good too and it made few stops to get food :) skywalk was amazing!!!! Grand Canyon was unbelievable. Would definitely recommend it to others!
This trip was everything we wanted in seeing the Grand Canyon, our Captain had a wonderful sense of humour, the view from the aeroplane was amazing, glad we didn't do the skywalk as got just as good a view from Eagle and Guano Points and helicopter ride to the bottom was brilliant.
This tour was amazing! ! Very comparative price offering , comfortable and well organized by Travel Agent. Optional skywalk tickets and lunch vouchers were very worthwhile to purchase in advance. Wonderful experience of Grand Canyon and Hoover dam trip. ....Thanks VIATOR....
This was a fantastic package that i choose,it gives you many perspective,and fantastic views of the west rim of the grand canyon.The helicopter flight was just breath taking in the canyon,and the boat ride was ok but needs to be a little longer,butt he views of the canyon when you are on the colorado river were just amazing especially with the sunlight shining on the canyon,the skywalk is a brilliant piece of engineering and the view downwards through the glass to the bottom of the canyon awe inspiring. The hoover dam view from the viewing bridge is ok but i would have liked to have been on the dam itself,this was not the view i was expecting,but what you do see of the hoover dam is still pretty impressive.
The whole day that i spent doing this tour was just awesome,our bus driver thomas was just magnificent,his knowledge and enthusiasm brilliant,the staff at airbridge just so accommodating and friendly and no issue or problem to big,they are there to make sure you have a great time,and the personal at viator just fantastic,with all the help they provided me.I highly recommend this tour package to everyone,and i definitely will use viator again for further tours and packages.
We loved the tour: our pilot, Ray, was very professional,and informative and put us all at ease. The tour itself including the landing on the floor of the canyon as well as a scintillating visit to the Skywalk was wonderful. This Grand Canyon tour was truly the highlight of our trip.
The Grand Canyon was amazing ! The only bad I could say about the trip was you were rushed especially when you do the helicopter the boat ride and the skywalk. I think if they gave you a half hour more you could do everything and not be rushed
We thoroughly enjoyed our helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. Our mid-morning tour preference was booked, so we went early in the morning - but that meant the Skywalk was pretty much deserted and we were able to spend quite a bit of time taking in the view. Phenomenal. Alex, our pilot, was incredibly nice and extremely capable. Great experience.
This trip is a trip of a lifetime. If you have limited time but want to see everything the Grand Canyon has to offer, this is the trip for you! We chose the optional helicopter ride and Skywalk tours and they were well worth the extra money. Everyone was extremely nice and accomodating. We thought we were a little rushed so we got our lunch to go. Turns out either way we had enough time at each stop, although we skipped the indian village at the recommendation of the pilot, to afford more time at the Skywalk and Guano Point. He was right! Each facet of the tour was amazing, from the plane ride, to the helicopter ride to the beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend this tour.
Grand Canyon was amazing. Skywalk was fascinating and not as scary as I thought it would be. Driver Thomas was very knowledgable and entertaining during the entire ride
