The entire staff was very professional. Chuck, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and friendly. The sites we saw at the look out points at the south rim were breath taking. Taking the plane was a quick and pleasant experience. Back in Las Vegas by mid afternoon. I highly recommend this tour group and tour.

This tour was the best thing I did on my hoilday to America. I would recommend if you only have enough time to take one tour, to make it this one. Everything was better than expected, and the bus driver was fun and very informative.The plane ride was awesome as well, the views were incredible.The south rim of the canyon was mind blowingly beautiful, and the two spots we stopped at had heaps of areas to take awesome photos.An hour at the first stop was about the right time needed, but We could have spent a little more time at the second stop.It was a full day from pickup to drop off, and a trip to remember.There was also the added bonus that we could choose to watch an Imax theatre movie at the airport area on arrival. This is well worth doing. I came out feeling as though I had just had a rafting and helicopter experince of the canyon! Way cheaper than doing the real thing. It also gave a great history of the exploration of the canyon.A thoroughly recommended trip with Viator.

The trip to the rim was "FABULOUS". I was disappointed in the "bus" ride back to the hotel. 'the driver asked if we would mind if he dropped us off ACROSS the street from our hotel; Caesars. Everything except that (which after we got off the bus on the opposite side) we were sorry we said okay to the driver, so that was the only disappointment we had. but the trip out to the rim made us want more. so we will be back to the Grand Canyon!!! but will not be so nice to the next bus driver who should have done his job.

The grand canyon south rim air and ground tour is a must go.Everything starting from the pick up from our hotel all the way to the drop off at our hotel was really professional and well handled.Our time at the 2 grand canyon lookout points was perfect.Not to long and not to short(about 45 min. to an hour at each point).We got plenty of beautiful pictures also.My wife is Japanese so we took the Japanese guided tour and our guide Zippy was full of knowledge and just the most wonderful person you could meet.The local tour company was vision air.Thanks for the memory of a life time.If you are thinking about booking this tour,stop thinking this is the grand canyon tour to go on.Highly Recommend this tour!!!!!

This was trylu amazing. We did the West Rim the day before which was OK but nothing like this. If you go the the Canyon just once, do this tour

Awsome trip! Our Friday trip was caneled due to bad weather, but Viator really communicated with us the night before and the next morning as well and we resccheduled for Sunday. Very good experience. The Canyon had snow and it was beautiful ! Viator did everything right. If there was anything odd about it, it was that the Pilot never spoke a word to our group and the co-pilot wasn't much better, otherwise, it was great. We also booked two concerts, a Comic show and a day experience and all our will call tix were waiting on us. So, ignore Obama and go have some fun in Vegas. PS: The Aria Hotel was perfect !

This trip was the highlight of our recent US holiday. It was a treat for my 50th birthday - what a way to celebrate! The canyon is amazing, spectacular scenery which goes on for miles. The hotel shuttle collected us as arranged, the hour long flight to the south rim gave us excellent views and photos of the canyon and Hoover Dam. The lunch box provided was enjoyed by all four of us. We were driven by coach to 2 view points and our driver, Chuck, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. All - in -all a great day out which I can thoroughly recommend, unless you have time for an over-night in the Canyon which I would aim for if I went again.

This is an excellent tour. It costs more than the 5.5 hour coach trip but is well worth it to fly over the Hoover Dam, see the desert and Hoover Dam from the air and get back within a reasonable time. The trip was well organised, our coach driver was informative and entertaining but it would have been nice to have had more time at the South Rim. The plane was smooth and modern, the lunch provided was more than adequate and overall it was a trip to remember.
