The tour was fantastic! Would recommend to others who wish to tour the canyon and dam without using up an entire day on a ground bus tour.
We really enjoyed the flight over the West Rim. It was breath-taking. The commentary was very good and audible. There were plenty of photo opportunities and the conditions on the day were awesome. We could see for miles.
My wife, two adult daughters and I had a very enjoyable experience on our Viator tour over the Grand Canyon. The entire trip was very well organized, facilities and accommodations were outstanding and the scenery was spectacular. My only disappointment was that we didn't receive more information via the tour guides or recorded messages as we were flying. I'm the kind of person who likes to hear details about what we are seeing and I just didn't feel we receive a lot of that on this flight. For instance, I had to ask after we landed how far we actually went into the canyon. Also, it would have been nice to go at least as far east as the "south rim" and to see the new glass walk-way (whatever it is called) that allows people on the ground to walk out over the canyon. None of that was pointed out to us during the flight.
Overall a very good tour. A little mix up with the hotel pickup but the staff was very helpfull and made sure we made it to the tour in time. All staff was plesant and easy to work with. The flight was good, great views you couldn't have seen any other way.
Absolutely brilliant, Grand Canyon was breath taking. The staff at Boulder City airport and the the airline could not be more helpful and friendly.
good tour, neat safe and clean plane, good views of the grand canyon. a definately must do if you dont have alot of time in vegas
saw some nice views pos would have got closer with helicopter but enjoyed trip.
Excellent flight but seeing helicopters down low inside the canyon made me wonder if we should have paid a bit more for this option. Next time maybe!
For the price of our afternoon tour, this was a great experience. Communication at Boulder City Airport was very poor. On arrival we were told once checked in that we would be called in 30 minutes. An hour had passed before we had to ask what was the delay and were then told earlier issues had impacted the schedule. It would have been more professional to have kept us informed and an apology wouldn't have gone amiss either! Once on board communication again was poor, we were not instructed on how to use our headsets or given any indication when the commentary had started-the volume was down on my headset and so I missed all the Hoover Dam information. Spectacular views were plentiful and so overall was still worth doing.
A very well organised trip, with fairly prompt (and very early in the morning) pick-up. Unfortunately, the weather was a bit rough so the aircraft had to fly a bit higher than usual which meant that we didn't get a real idea of the scale of the canyon. If we could have flown a little lower it would have been more exciting. It was advertised as 4hrs altogether but it was only about 3 hrs from start to finish. If we went again we would probably spend a little more and take a flight right down into the canyon. A good trip for the price.
What a great way to see The Grand Canyon, Flight was pleasant. Not very well informed on what to do and where to proceed after we arrived at the airport, and even less after the tour. The flight its self was fantastic! Seems like they lack on the organization skills.
very early start 04.30am, but definately worth it.amazing views and commentry. Internally plane was extremely tatty .
