Las Vegas, Nevada
Absolutely fantastic is all I can say. We chose the afternoon trip which on the return to Vegas gave us a spectacular view of the Strip with the last rays of the sun glinting off all the buildings. Our Limo picked us up on time, the staff at the airport were polite, friendly and the checking in procedures were easy and very efficient. The flight out to the canyon took no time at all and our pilot gave us some great background information on the areas that we flew over. Being a music buff, the choice of music that played was perfect - very West Coast californian and very appropriate, so well done to the person who chose it. On landing at the Caynon, everthing ran smoothly. Would have to say the only bit we were a bit disappointed by was the Skywalk. When we arrived, it was great that there were not too many people however the building is incomplete - it looks like it is still in progress, we were told that it had been that way for a number of years...hmm for the money we paid perhaps not worth it. The Grand Canyon is grand enough with doing the walk. The food for lunch was plentiful and tasty. Don't forget though to bring sunscreen and drink lots of water. As it was my daughters first trip to the Canyon and indeed first helipcopter trip - well worth the money, well done.
