Deluxe Grand Canyon South Rim Airplane Tour from Las Vegas, Nevada - the best trip !!!!
This was a great trip by a very professional organisation - when our helicopter component was cancelled due to weather, they gave us a number of options to make good: partial refund, shorter trip the next day or the whole tour again. Companies cannot always control what goes wrong but can control how they deal with it and this was handled very well. The trip itself was fantastic taking you to two view points, just remember the south rim is generally about 20 degrees Celsius lower than Las Vegas.
Great service collection from Airport and we were promptly on our plane to the Grand Canyon. Awesome views, but unfortunately due to weather circumstance were unable to utilise the helicopter section of our trip. Viator were fantastic and refunded this portion promptly. Would recommend and book with them again without doubt
Amazing and well worth the Value. Added helicopter ride which was breathtaking. Would recommend this tour to everyone
I was too scared to do the helicopter and I don't regret doing this airplane tour. Very well organised from beginning to end. And the scenery at the GrandCanyon was stunning.
Awesome tour! Definitely a MUST! The staff at the airline company were the best! My friend and I did the tour without the helicopter tour and still enjoyed ourselves! The first stop at the Grand Canyon South Rim was definitely the best and if you did the helicopter tour, you did not get to stop there. Worth every penny!!!!
Had a great time on this tour, the two stops in the south rim offered breath taking views and there was plenty of time to take photos and eat our packed lunches. The pilots were friendly and very helpful and the bus driver was knowledgeable and funny!
Absolute must do tour, excellent staff. Only quibble, we did not bring our mobile and therefore did not get a message regarding start time, and the number provided was incorrect. This meant we nearly missed the flight, fortunately the hotel had a correct number.
Otherwise, definitely do this tour ! A lovely day out with tremendous views and well taken care of.. Could have done with a veggie option that wasn't cheese, but the lunch was otherwise ok.
absolutely amazing trip, everything ran on time and without a hitch, wonderful service
Great way to get to the South Rim -fast and comfortable -all very well arranged. Canyon itself is amazing -views at South Rim viewing points are incredible-a must see.
Having been to the canyon before and done the west rim in a helicopter, we decided this time to do the south rim. Boy, what a difference! We took our ten year old this time and we all loved it. I did extensive research and decided that the jet and the trolley ride was the best combination and value for money. We couldn't have been more happy. From the pick up at the hotel to the drop off back at the hotel, the whole trip was well worth it. We had Bruce driving our trolley at the canyon, he was well versed in the area, keeping us engaged and informed. The time spent by ourselves was ample, with plenty of photo opportunities, and a lunch that hit the spot at just the right time. The pilot and co-pilot were friendly, letting us go to the cockpit to have a look around and take photos. I would highly recommend this tour. Thank you to all the staff for a great tour.
I researched extensively for this trip as I really wnated to go to the South Rim and eventually decided to book through Viator because it was the best rate.
It was one of the best experiences of my life and well worth every penny... from pick up to drop off everything went smoothly and each and everyone of the employees I encountered from the bus drivers to the pilots were excellent.
The bus pick up was on time and only slowed down by my fellow trippers who couldn't get themselves to the meeting point on time.
I had the best expresso in the waiting depot, it's clean and well maintained and the staff are friendly.
The light plane was piloted by a women which received a big thumbs up from me and the views amazing. I would suggest sitting on the left handside as there is more to see from those seats. The trip in a light plane for me was a new and great experience.
The bus driver who collected us at the other end was great and very accurate in his conversations and instruction.
The Grand Canyon South Rim was sensational and up there with the Great Wall of China and the Great Barrier Reef I've visited both in my opinion. The colours, the animals and the peacefulness not to mention the size blew me away! I could have spent a couple of weeks there.
The helicopter ride was the icing on the cake and whilst I was a litle envious of some of my fellow tripopers who hadn't booked the heli ride and were going to to another part of the canyon I wouldn't have missed flying through the Grand Canyon in a helicopter... the canyon almost felt in touchin distance and you really appreciate it's jaw dropping size and the wonder of nature right there. The sightseeing planes they use in the canyon give you a real birdseye view and I was lucky enough to be sat right next to the pilot... although it really wouldnt have matter where I'd been sitting as you could see right round from every seat.
10 out 10!
We were really looking forward to this visit to the grand canyon. I was nervous about the helicopter flight. I don't know what there was to worry about the pilot was fantastic and the flight was amazing. I was very impressed with the whole trip and would definitely it Ely recommend it. Once again thank you
We had a great time on our Grand Canyon South Rim Airplane tour! Everyone was great! We also did the helicopter ride in the Canyon. So worth the extra money! I was skeptical about spending the extra to do the helicopter ride, but scenery was breathtaking! It was something we will never forget!
The trip was excellent .Very well organised and going on the early trip ie the 8.00 am gave us an opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon before the crowds arrived . The whole experience was fantastic
This was so worth the money I paid for. My family all loved the whole experience.
Make sure you add the helicopter ride because that is something you do not want to miss out. The airplane tour was fun too, but it was the helicopter tour that made everything a lot more special and exciting.
However, I do have to note that we were lucky and that's probably why we enjoyed it a little more than other people. In the helicopter tour that I added we were in a helicopter for 6 people. Of the 6 people, 3 people get to sit in the front where you get to sit next to the pilot, so you will get a full view of everything. The back seats are a little more limited in view because you get to see things through the side window. If you are sitting in the middle in the back, you basically do not get to see much. Of my family of 4, 3 of were in the front, and my brother was at the back. At least he had the access to side window. One of the person in the helicopter was in the middle back, and she obviously didn't look too satisfied.
Great way to spend an afternoon surrounded by beautiful lanscape. Guides and pilotes all super nice
Travelled with two adults, two young teens and one child.
From first booking on-line before we left the UK to being dropped back off at our hotel, the whole process was extremely smooth and efficient.
Very amiable, professional and knowledgeable staff.
Clear and easy instructions on all legs of the journey: booking, hotel pick-up, tour and drop-off.
No waiting around. On the whole, a really slick operation and delivered on all the claims made - unlike a lot of tour operators.
Okay, the lunch was a bit naff but it was a nice touch, anyway.
Having done both now, I highly recommend the airplane, south rim tour rather than the west rim, helicopter tour from Vegas. Although to get the most from this tour, I would suggest adding on the helicopter ride as an add-on at the time of booking. The walk-up price is much higher. :-
Fantastic experience -the pilots of both the plane and helicopter where friendly and enhanced what was definitely a highlight - not just of this holiday but will be in the memory forever
