Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Excellent tour. Very well organised and our pilot Chris was professional and friendly. Sensational views of both the grand canyon and hoover dam on the plane trip, and definitely much faster than driving.
Something to note about this tour that may not be clear in the description is that after the flight to the canyon, you board buses that take you around the 3 sites - it's not a guided tour. But the buses are well coordinated and timed, and its only about a 5 min bus ride between the destinations, so a tour guide isn't really needed. We had just enough time to see and do what we wanted (including the skywalk) but others on our group who chose to do the helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon and the boat ride were really pushed for time to get everything done and spend enough time at each location. So something to think about if you're wanting to do it all. Something else to note is that the helicopter flights to the bottom of the canyon can be cancelled if the temperature is about 100 degrees fahrenheit - which happened to other members of our group on the day. So if you want to do the helicopter tour in summer I recommend taking the earlier tours in the morning.
One small issue - we purchased the photo package of the 2 photos of us in front of the plane to be emailed to us and never received them. Still trying to sort that out now but I'm sure it will be resolved over the next week.
All in all it was a fantastic trip and it was definitely worth the extra $ for the flights for the great views and saving time.

Fantastic day tour. We booked to the tour the day before and were driven around in a small air conditioned mini bus. The tour guide Levil was awesome - friendly and very knowledgable. The express tickets at the empire state building and for Ellis Island and the statue of liberty were awesome - we just breezed past everyone else who lined up for ages. The tour commentary while in the bus was great tour - I wish we hadn't bought the ticket to the downtown hop on hop off tour the day before because this was much better.

Fantastic tour. Alex the tour guide was helpful, knowledgeable and funny. I wasn't expecting to enjoy the visit to the school but it was delightful and the kids were cute. The tour is timed so that you get to the zoo at Panda feeding time (panda is asleep otherwise). The markets were a culture shock but very interesting. Definitely a tour not to be missed.

My Review

Good tour. The tour guide Danny was informative and friendly but his jokes were a little bit lame! The Sampan ride at Aberdeen was great and we got some time at Victoria Peak to explore and take photos before taking the tram ride down. Also got a decent amount of time to look around Stanley markets and Repulse Bay and take photos etc. The Jewelry factory was more of a sell then an educational process - actually would have preferred to spend more time learning about how jewelry is made than being sold to. But otherwise a good tour and a great way to see the key sights in a short period of time.
