Amazing tour. You get to see everything and are not rushed. The staff and pilots were phenomenal. Safety first. I was picked up at 10:00 and dropped off at 6:00. Fantastic value for your money. If you want to do it all this is the tour.

The original booking of this trip was easy and Viator was helpful in making it happen. On the day of the trip when we were supposed to be picked up from our hotel MGM grand in Vegas, the shuttle had another name not Viator. The driver didn't want to take us, but then we asked her to look again on the list, our name was there. She ended up taking us to catch the airplane ride. After that arrival to the plane, the trip was fabulous, worth seeing especially flying over the canyon, lake mead and hoover dam. The pontoon ride down the Colorado river was very short, but all in all a very worthwhile adventure.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Had an awesome trip with great experiences right from dealing with the supplier of the trip all the way through to the day itself.
Everything went very smoothly with minimal waiting around and the organisation of all aspects was very professional.
We didn't do the skywalk and don't feel that we missed out! The free lunch is huge and was very tasty and served extremely promptly so it dd not impact on the time we had.
The plane flight and helicopter rides were exhilarating and fun. The boat trip was actually a lot more enjoyable than we expected 2 adults, 1 11 yo child and provided some fantastic pictures.
Definitely worth doing this trip as a once in a lifetime experience.
