The bus ride out and back to the canyon went very well. We opted for the helicopter and boat rides - a must do! We went to Eagle Point and Guano Point. Both of these are short (5 minute) bus rides from the previous drop off. Since we did the helicopter and boat rides, we did not have a lot of time to spend at each location, but you need to make sure to get to each of these locations. We had a total of 4 hours at the site. I wish we could have spent all day, but it is a long ride from Vegas, so time is limited. I recommend this tour.

My tour to the West Rim was the best experience. The bus driver was very informative and funny. A full day of lots to see, helicopter and boat down Colorado river and to see Grand Canyon was amazing especially on the Skywalk. This trip I would recommend .

First off our bus driver Dwayne was AWESOME! He was entertaining, accomodating and made sure we all got the best bang for our buck. It was very windy the day we went and they were unsure if the helicopters were going to fly. Fortunately for us the pilots were fantastic and despite less than ideal conditions they did a great job. Flying in and out of the canyon is breathtaking. The pontoon trip down the Colorado river is so relaxing and refreshing. The lunch was delicious and all the staff out at the canyon were great to deal with. A much enjoyed diverstion from the craziness of VEGAS!

This trip was the most amazing day ever! An early morning pick up but well worth it considering what's coming. Our driver Mike was fantastic, he had everyone on the coach laughing with his humour, but was very knowledgeable also with lots of facts and information on the local area. Do this trip!!

Absolutely brilliant. From our tour guide, Uncle Russell to everyone on the bus. the wonderful views, had a small problems when we got to the canyon - our names werent on the list - but a phone call cleared all that up and we got preference for our delay. Lunch was nice. The helicopter trip was great, the boat trip wonderful. The skywalk was amazing. Hopefully one day I will be able to do all again. They even gave us a wake up call at our motel - how good is that. A+++++++++

This day trip is brilliant. Not too long in the bus and you have a few stops along the way. Definatley prebook the boat and helicopter ride beforehand as they charge you a fortune if you book it there. The ranch isn't much, so after the chopper ride and boat ride, go to the 2 lookout points first of the grand canyon. All in all, a great day!

One of the best tours ever - especialy the helicopter to the base of the canyon, highlight of the day

Exceptional ride. Despite hours by bus to get to the helicopter base, this route is that you can see the dam Hoover Dam takes all day but certainly worth every dollar spent.

This tour is amazing, if you want to see the Grand Canyon from all different perspectives then this tour is for you! The helicopter flight and boat down the river really made the tour spectacular and the skywalk was such a unique experience. The day ran smoothly and would definitely do it again.

Coach ride was very nice, helicopter flight was surreal. Flying along the West Rim, down along the Colorado River and landing to take a fanastic, 20 minute, bontoon boat ride up and down the river, discussing the area with a Native American from the Hualapai tribe. Meal at Guano Point was fanastic and so were the views. This was a very nice excursion, but be prepared for the very bumpy dirt road ride into and out of the West Rim area.

This was a fabulous day trip. The helicopter ride into the canyon was amazing and the pontoon boat ride on Colorado River was breathtaking. A steep walk from helicopter to boat was not mentioned but plenty of time allowed. Skywalk was bit disappointing as not over steep part of canyon.
