So glad we paid £200+ each for this! A lot of money for a couple in their early twenties, but one of the most memorable experiences of our trip. We were picked up from our Vegas hotel at 6am in a limo, and whisked across the road to the air field. We spent around 45 minutes here waiting, which didn't matter as we watched the sun rise. Before we knew it, we were getting into our helicopter and being whisked into the air. The views over Lake Mead were stunning, and we got great photos of the Hoover Dam. After landing in the Canyon, we had 15 minutes to take photos and explore a little, before reconvening for breakfast - champagne, orange juice, croissant and jam, honey and oats bar, blueberry muffin and a bag of red grapes. We switched seats on the way back which meant others could sit up front, and again, the views were beautiful. After landing, I stupidly left my camera in the helicopter and one of the girls inside went and fetched it for me.
Overall - worth the money for this once in a life time experience!
This is a MUST DO for everyone! Our pilot was professional and friendly, and the ride to and from the Grand Canyon was smooth! On the way out to the Canyon, and lunch, we listened to a narration about some features and history of the land and cities below. It was very interesting and I learned a lot! Lunch was fabulous, and the scenery was breath-taking! On the way back, our pilot pointed out several points of interest...Red Rock Canyon (and why it's red), why there was so much white showing on the shores of Lake Meade...again, super interesting. I'm so very glad we spend the money for this experience...once in a lifetime deal!
From the moment our limo ride arrived(right on time!) at the Downtown Grand Hotel, we were whisked away to the terminal. The ladies in the office were most helpful with information about our upcoming adventure.
Smooth take-off, and leisurely flight over Hoover Dam, and then Lake Mead. Soon we landed in the bottom of the Gorge at Grand Canyon, (west rim) and took a short trip in a pontoon, to experience the Colorado River. The second half of our trip was on land, talking to the Haulapai Indians, while eating an excellent out-in-the-open feast of bar-b-que lunch.
Traveling back to Las Vegas proved exciting..flying right down the middle of the Las Vegas Strip. What an addition to the Bucket List. What a trip
We can thoroughly recommend this Helicopter Tour. Booking, turning up on the day along with the Pilot all fantastic! It was definately the highlight of our Vegas Trip! Thank you.
My trip was excellent Iwas able to sit next to our awesome pilot Kelly. She proved additional information that as a scuba diver I found great.
I highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Vegas area and the staff made it extra special as this day was my birthday as well.
This trip was amazing. Dave our pilot was great. The champagne breakfast was brilliant, gave us a chance to take some amazing photos, and the trip over the strip on the way back was brilliant.
Recommend this Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour :-)
The experience was great. Smooth flight with onboard commentary, and obviously great views including the Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas Strip. However, I would ask the tour operators if the stay at the Grand Canyon for the picnic could be extended for 10-15 mins more. Found it rather rushed, for example, taking photos of a life time, enjoying the site, having the meal. The 30 mins at the base went very quickly. Nevertheless, I recommend this tour, and still had the rest of the afternoon to do other things in Las Vegas.
A wonderful experience. We took our two teenaged grandaughters on this trip and we know for sure it will be an unforgettable memory. The girls were very impressed with our pilot Heather, and the top of the line helicopter we rode. Very satisfied with the timely pick up and overall service.
If you can do this tour, we highly recommend it. The tour could have stopped after the limo ride and my parents would have been happy. We all loved it. Such a time saver and unique way to see Las Vegas. Our guide was very informative and professional.
The helicopter trip was fantastic, it is well worth doing, the only way to see the Gran Canyon and the picnic lunch was great.
From the pick up in the Limo to the picnic lunch in the Grand Canyon - everything was fantastic. The helicopter pilot was really friendly and informative I would highly recommend. A great experience, a 'must do' if you're going to Las Vegas.
Our trip into the Grand Canyon was awesome. My husband was so surprised by the attention we received from the moment we were picked up in a stretch limo to the champagne lunch in the Grand Canyon. The tour was the best we have ever done.
