Our family was very impressed with this tour.
Very friendly and professional from pickup to the dropoff.
Grand Canyon Lake Mead and Hoover Dam well worth the trip.

Take morning tours as the afternoon flights can be bumpby this time of year due to thunderstorms. pilot was great and made sure that everthing to see from air was easy to photo. Transfers went smoothly and went off without a hitch. A can't go wrong tour----------TAKE IT!
We had a really fabulous day, we were picked up promptly at 8am from our hotel by the driver at Vegas 500 and after checking in at the airport we were greeted by our pilot Cathy (with whom we had a great day and even pursuaded her to come on the Skywalk with us). After take off from the small airport in Vegas we had a fabulous view of Vegas and the surrounding areas and there was an in-flight commentary which helped to get an idea of exactly what you were seeing, the flight took about half an hour until we landed at the airport at the west rim. Cathy got our tickets for the Skywalk and we then boarded a bus which took us to the Skywalk at Eagle point on which the driver gave us a hilarious description of the area. No queuing at the Skywalk as we already had our tickets, all items needed to be put into lockers which are free. There are photographers on the Skywalk who take plenty of photos for you which you can then purchase in the giftshop (we couldn't choose which ones so paid to have them put onto a USB stick), the view from the Skywalk is magnificent but it is more of an experience feeling like you are walking on air as there is just a glass floor (you do need to wear covers over your shoes) and you can see right down into the canyon. After leaving the Skywalk you can look around some native huts where you then board another bus which takes you up to the Viewpoint at Guano Point where you are left to roam around at look at the views which are breath taking we had about an hour to have a look around, then re-boarded the bus to take us back to the airport where there is a gift shop. There was bad weather coming in so we made our way back to the plane and our pilot Cathy did a magnificent job flying around the weather but seeing a storm from the air was fab. We also had a fabulous birds eye view of the Hoover Dam on the way back. All in all a fabulous day would highly recommend!!!!
Exceptional! Great people, easy logistics. They even drove our camera that we left in the van back to our hotel before we realized it was gone! Highly recommend this group for tours.
We thoroughly enjoyed our flight and tour - We had free time to take picture and to attend the souvenir shop. Our pilot was excellent, very funny and interacted with us from the beginning of the tour until the very end - This trip is a MUST do when in Vegas!
The light plane tour was just amazing. We were lucky enough with our party of four to be the only ones in the plane to the Canyon. Seeing the canyon and Hoover dam/lake Mead from the air was the best way to appreciate the scenery as only three days prior had been on the Hoover dam/lake mead tour which was also great but seeing from the air is the best way to go to the Grand Canyon. The pilot and staff and the shuttle driver for the tour company Vegas 500 Air Tours were very professional and made the tour a great experience.
Great tour. Everything was on time. Our pilot was a very charming and capable young woman who did a marvelous job. It is a well organized tour. We had heaps of time at the western rim to see the 2 lookouts and the bus between is very regular. On the flight back we were given a great view of Hoover Dam. This is the best way in my opinion to visit the grand Canyon you don't need to spend hours on a bus. Some of the bus tours had been there for hours and were facing a very long drive back to Vegas. You don't need to be there for hours it is spectacular but at the end of the day it is still a big hole in the ground and there are just so many photos you can take. It's a small plane seats 7 people only and the flight can be a bit bumpy. We loved it and highly recommend this tour to others.
It was an amazing adventure.
Everything worked out perfectly.
We do recommend it:-):-):-)
any way you can get to the grand canyon is worth it for me!!! it is just a must see ! the plane was a little "hairy",but not that terrible. the pilot told us that sometimes the heat causes turbulence,so I was prepared.On the way back to Vegas he flew over Hoover Dam, which was pretty cool. But get to the canyon .. IT IS JUST AWESOME!!!!
The staff was very attentive. The trip met every expectation! Seeing the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, and Lake Mead was beyond our imaginations! Thank you for a lifetime experience!
My wife and I took this tour via the semi private plane (abt 6 ppl plus pilot). They picked us up and dropped us off at hotel. We had perfect timing at both canyon stops at the western rim. We left hotel at 6am and were back at abt 11:30am - sounds like a short trip but it wasn't.
