We spent most of the day in The Venetian. We had breakfast at the Casanova Italian which was lovely, then made our way to the Gondola ride. Our ride included outdoors but unfortunately it was closed for maintenance, which was a huge shame as it was a beautiful day outside, but nevertheless, the indoor ride was beautiful still. We shared a Gondola with another young couple around the same age as us who were from the US and very nice! Our Gondola man was so lovely and had a wonderful voice and sang to us, made jokes, played around a little by tipping the boat side to side and was very informative! We visited Zeffirinos for a later lunch, I had the salad to start and lasagne for mains, whilst my boyfriend had the soup to start with Chicken Marsala for mains. The food was beautiful and was also given fresh warm bread and cold ice water which was always topped up. We also had a lovely view of the Gondolas below, as we were sat upstairs. Afterwards, we went to Madame Tussauds which was great! It was pretty short walking around but we got some great photos. We also went into the 4D Experience, which was fun too! We got rained on, poked at and things around our feet as we sat and watched! My boyfriend found my reactions very amusing lol! We also got photo print outs of us on the Gondola after our ride and also in Madam Tussauds, as before you go in you can have photos taken. Not included in this package. We paid extra but worth it for the nice photos! - We massively saved by pre-booking and it was a great day! Thanks Viator!
This is a great package. We enjoyed touring Madame Tussauds and taking photos next to the figures. The Italian restaurant dinner was really great and the Gondola ride along the canals with a humorous gondolier was fun.
Gondola ride outdoors was short but very friendly staff members. Madam Tassauds was a great experience! But the lunch in this deal.was by far the best Italian restaurant my wife and i have attended. Very friendly and professional staff members and awesome food. Definitely worth a big tip!
It's a great deal. You get to enter the Madame Tussaud, eat at a nice restaurant and enjoy a gondola ride at the Venetian. This "tour" was the first thing we did when we arrived at Las Vegas for our honeymoon and we did not regret it. It's a very good starting point of all the great things end experiences you can have at this terrific city. We ate for lunch at Zeffirino's which is located in the Venetian and you can watch the gondola rides and hear the beautiful voices of the gondoliers! Food was very nice and the staff at the restaurant is very friendly. The gondola ride though is very very very short... 5 minutes tops! But anyway it was a very nice experience.
Fun day . Went as soon as it opened and MT was done in an hour with plenty of photos. Outdoor gondola ok , singer was fun . Pain had to book in inside and then walk outside again to ride or upgrade to indoor possible for 10 dollars pp.
Lunch was much better than expected . Great food/ service
The food was amazing in zafferinos and the staff were very obliging. The gondola ride was lovely, the gondolier was very friendly. Madame tussards was also very good. Great deal, well worth the money we paid. Thank you
Good humor and excellent music, overall a well done show. The venue at the Venetian is very good as well.

"Like Clockwork" ..... From being picked up at our hotel, The Venetian, to boarding our helicopter for the flight down into the base of the canyon everything was timed to precision. This trip will always be regarded by both myself and my wife as the best trip we have ever been on. The views are breathtaking and our decision to fly from Boulder City to the canyon as opposed to taking the "losing the will to live" three and a half hours coach route was money well spent and you should all do the same.
The Hualapai Indians administer 1,000,000 acres of the rim and the amenities provided by them are second to none, all for your pleasure and comfort. Tarmac roads, landscaped areas, all for your benefit.
They funded and contracted the building of the "Skywalk", the glass platform you can walk out on but your view from this tourist attraction is no different from the adjacent flat areas of rock next to the same area of the canyon. Also, the banning of photographic equipment and mobile phones on this glassed area also defeats the object of paying extra to walk out onto it. So, in essence, save your money. My wife and I were able to take lots of photos and videos of the decent into and out of the canyon by helicopter and also the flight to and from the canyon from Boulder City Airport. Our 16 year old daughter is studying the Grand Canyon rock structure, flora and fauna at college so we were able to assist her with lots of photo images of the same.
A truly breathtaking trip made perfect by the organisers at Viator.

Excellent value for money. Madame Tussaud's great fun. Gondola ride brilliant. Gondolier very knowledgeable and fab singer. Finished off with really enjoyable meal in Zefferino's. Would definitely recommend.
A lovely day all around. Madame Tussauds was a lot of fun. The staff at the gondola ride were very kind and helpful to my husband who needs a wheelchair at times. The lunch at Zefferinos was delicious and peaceful. The restaurant is beautiful.
Absolutely amazing. Began with a Limo picking us up from the Venetian Hotel and then a drive along to LV Airport. We met our pilot Chuck and had the most thrilling trip over the Hoover Dam Lake Mead and on to the Grand Canyon. Our pilot took pictures of us with our cameras and laid out our champagne picnic.
Only 6 people in total on the tour so it felt special. Sat in the front of the helicopter on the return trip and flew over the strip before returning to the airport. Thoroughly worth the money.

Great value for money. Only on the Gondola for about 12 minutes but was still a great experience. Staff were extreamly polite and sociable even singing us a song towards the end.
Really good in Tussards, and was a welcome break from the sun.
Lunchtime meal was execptional. Beautiful restaurant upstairs, fantastic food and the staff could not
do enough for us
Would highly recommend.
Awesome way to spend the afternoon. The Gondola ride was very nice and relaxing. The wax museum was fun and lunch was amazing! Great food choices. Beautiful atmosphere.
Incredible!!!! The staff couldn't have been better. I wanted to propose in Vegas but kept read about how woman hated the gondola proposals (which apparently is very popular among men) so I decided to try this option. The pilot was aware ahead of time of what I was doing and had our table setup away from the others. He took pictures and the ladies in the office had my fiance a dozen fresh roses when we got back!! I can't really tell you how amazing it was. I would recommend this for anyone who wants a romantic experience seeing the grand canyon!!
We upgraded to a private gondola and indoors as the voucher was for outdoors and it was well worth the extra money, the Gondola driver was absolutely brilliant and sang a couple of songs and happy birthday in Italian........brilliant. Madame Tussauds was excellent too I strongly urge everyone to go to the 4D experience. We had lunch and that was very pleasant too, we sat eating listening to the Gondola drivers singing. Brilliant day, thoroughly enjoyed every moment.
