Grand Canyon West Rim Day Trip by Coach, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk

Las Vegas, Nevada

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
The day started early ,we were told to meet at 6.15am .The coach arrived 45mins late and we were then taken to a transit area to register ,this was really a stop to try to sell more additions to tours .We were hearded with at least 200 others and were given coffee and a pastry and then put on another coach .This was all a bit of a shamles and wasted another 45 minutes. We eventualy caught a coach and set off , the driver raised our spirits with his humour and knowledge .We stopped at the Hoover Dam which was impressive and also at a small shop in the desert for refreshments . When we arrived at the Grand Canyon we were sent into a small room and this was also a shambles as there were several different tour agencies and the room was packed .We could not hear the helicopter saftey breifing for all the noise . Then things improved ,we boarded the helicopter and flew to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and then travelled on a boat on the Colorado river . The views were awe inspiring and photos can not do justice ,the helicopter ride was a must do once in your life and the view from the river gave an entirely different perspective to the canyon . We then boarded the helicopter to fly back up to the rim and after travelled around the West Rim on the shuttle and had an edible meal of chicken and rice. The actual helicopter ,boat and Hoover Dam were all spectacular but the organisation of the coaches and transit really need sorting out as it puts a dampener on the rest of a great tour and wastes over 90 minutes of time that could be spent at the Canyon.
