Amazing experience. Pilot was really informative and friendly. Defo worth the money. When we landed I just wanted to get back in and do it all again. Sunset was beautiful and fab views of strip
Brilliant tour with a great pilot/guide. Well worth the money. Everything was well organised and efficient
This tour was wonderful. There was a decent amount of "down" time between when we arrived at the airport until the time we took off. The trip was fantastic - landing right near the rim - nice amount of time for pictures and the light picnic with champagne. They even accommodated the one person in our group who was gluten free! I would absolutely recommend this trip.
ASTOUNDING VIEWS! VERY PROFESSIONAL! WORTH EVERY PENNY! From booking this tour, experiencing the tour and to being dropped of at my hotel, it was an all perfect ride! I was picked up by a limousine as expected, got to sit next to the driver and had an entertaining chat with him.
The helicopter ride was such a thrill! My first time ever and we had one of the best weather conditions ever. No bumpy ride at all. Great music for take off, interesting explanation from the narrator and the pilot added some extra information as well. Having seen the South rim of the Grand Canyon I knew what to expect a little bit but it's really impossible to describe when you fly over the West rim and dive in between the two ridges.
After flying over Vegas, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, the Grand Canyon appears ahead of you, looking so impossibly large and overwhelming! The picknick is a surreal experience almost, expecially since the sun sets leaving beautiful shades on the rim and making the most beautiful pictures possible. Who can say they zipped from their champagne, while being surrounded by this true wonder in nature.
Yet, the BANG to my tour was the trip back to Vegas when you could see the sun set on the horizon. The closer you get to Vegas the more lights appear in front of you. It's when you understand that Vegas is huge! So many lights and such an awesome feeling to be able to fly directly along the Strip. I would advise anyone, to book this tour as a SUNSET TOUR!
I actually will be back in a few years and book the same tour in one of their bigger helicopters to be able to also reserve a place in the front. It's the only thing I regret. I sat on the second row and could make great pictures but next time I want to be in the front and take it all in....
Thanks Helicopter tour company! And a special thanks to Benny who was my limo driver on the way back.
Awesome experience and the highlight of our first trip to Vegas. We took the sunset tour with Sundance and everything was spectacular. We are still talking about it. Well worth the money. Strongly recommend.
This trip was done last minute with us because of family commitments, and booking last minute is always a worry - however, they were absolutely fantastic from start to finish it was amazing...
doing the sunset trip I can't understand why anyone would do a day trip you get the best of both worlds.
the one thing that let it down was the transport back, we landed and the car to pick us up was an hour - I just think when you pay something this expensive that it should be on time, we were stood In a car park in the middle of nowhere
My wife and I took this tour on the second day of our honeymoon, and what an amazing way to kick off our stay in Las Vegas! From the awesome limo ride to the airport and back (plus a stop at the Las Vegas sign before dropping us off!) to the fun souvenir photos, entertaining music during our flight, and romantic picnic at the foot of the Grand Canyon, this experience far exceeded our wildest expectations. Our pilot was incredibly skilled and knowledgeable, and everyone at Viator did everything possible to ensure we had a memorable time. The Grand Canyon's amazing beauty doesn't need much to enhance it, but seeing it this way made memories to last a lifetime!
Tour was amazing!!!! It was well worth the money!!! Its a def must do for anyone that wants to visit the Grand Canyon. Pilot Alex was amazing as well, very fun and friendly!
This was a fantastic experience, hands down the best thing we did while in Vegas! I would absolutely recommend sunset helicopters for any trip you want to take. The sunset trip was incredible but it had to be perfectly timed so they keep you on a tight schedule. We didn't spend a long time in the canyon, about 40 minutes, but we also had to get back in the air to catch the sunset and make it out of the canyon by dark. It's a must see trip and worth EVERY PENNY! Don't let the cost of this trip stop you from going it was completely worth it :)
We got picked up by a Stretch Limo which was nice.
Didn't have to wait long before we took off. Raymond, our Pilot was very nice and plesant.
Took off and enjoyed a great journey to the Canyon with landmarks being pointed out on the way.
We landed and got to look around and take some photos before enjoying a quick bite to eat ( an extra 15 minutes would have been better ) and then took off again for our return journey.
This was at Sunset and the journey was just as perfect as the outward one but made ten times better by the stunning view of the Vegas strip all lit up at night.
Definitely worth doing by Helicopter !
