It was everything we imagined at would be. Breathtaking scenery, wonderful helicopter flight, and fun river cruise. We would definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent, well organised from hotel pick-up, activity and return to the hotel.
We did have a hip-cup at the Colorado river, to me had no consequences, allowed me more time to view the wonderful scenery and talk to other people from around the world.
Brilliant, would do again if we return to Las Vegas
Unfortunately, our boat ride was canceled due to mechanical issues which really stunk. However, the experience of the helicopter ride alone is not to be missed. Our pilot was amazing: friendly, knowledgable, and a lot of fun. He noticed my husband's Star Wars shirt, so he played a song from Star Wars as we landed. Amazing staff -- from the limo driver, to the people who check you in -- you feel welcome, and appreciated (which is always nice when you part with some money to do something). Over all, highly recommend and we plan on going back during our next trip to Vegas. Nothing beats leaving your hotel at 7 and being back at 10:30 after seeing the Grand Canyon. Most bus tours are 15+ hours and you need a whole day. For this, we barely needed a morning. AAA+++
Picked up in stretch limo which was a bit of overkill. Asked by operator on arrival if w could change to afternoon tour because of mechanical problems with one of the helicopters but flatly refused. However, helicopter pilot was brilliant and provided very informative tour out and back from canyon.
Fantastic - I booked this trip for my partner's birthday and we both loved it - well worth it!
One of the best tours we have ever been on. A great day was had by all. The experience will be with us for a long time to come.
Most amazing day of my life, great host/tour and the most amazing views from above and on the ground. Even got proposed to which topped the tour off!
Our pilot was professional, friendly and well informed. I would highly recommend Viator's services to everyone.
The helicopter flight was an amazing experience. Booking through Viator in advance meant I didn't have to get stressed about booking trips out there. Once you are in Vegas it is difficult to see the wood from the tress for all the people trying to sell you trips. I don't like big tour groups and this was ideal, a small party of six including myself and my partner were in the helicopter ensuring spectacular and unobstructed views. I was disappointed with the boat part though and would not recommend this as an extra. It is very short, 10-15 minutes and you don't travel any further into the canyon than the people who just paid for the flight and sat on the picnic table watching. In fact I was a little embarrassed when we walked back as the others in the tour could see it had been a waste of time. Overall though the experience left us with big grins on our faces!
Fantastic trip, only slight criticism was that there is not a lot of room in one of the seats in the rear of the helicopter. If you get the chance, sit in the front. Other than that it is great. Being on the water makes all the difference as you get a perspective on the sheer magnitude of the place. Just do it, you will not regret it.
Thanks to US President Obama - my tour was bit screwed due to flying restrictions in Vegas as he was in town. However Viator helped me salvage fair bit and offered an alternate tour. The ride in the stretch limo and then the Helicopter was fabulous. The marvel of Grand Canyon was out of the world.
