AWESOME and worth EVERY penny. If you want to see as much of the GC as is humanly possible in 1d: this is your tour. GCWT kept us appraised of everything during the trip (even suggesting an 'itinerary' on-the-ground to maximize time). Total time at GCW was approx 4h-- which is time to do most everything (heli, boat, lunch, Eagle and Guano Pts). I would also recommend you eat lunch at Guano: the food was very good and the portions were ginormous. Would HIGHLY recommend and would do again.

I had a fabulous time! The coach drivers were entertaining and informative; the helicopter pilot got us down and up very smoothly; the boat pilot was fun and helped everyone get a good camera shot. I had a great time and raved about it to my fellow conference attendees!

We took this trip whilst on a 4 night stay in Las Vegas.It was fantastic ! We were collected on time from our hotel in the pickup bus then taken to a marshalling point where we were given a thorough but short briefing before being fed and allocated the coach (1 of 4) for our particular toour.
The coach journey to the rim took over three hours but passed very quickly with the on board cabaret which was our driver Duane. The Flight into the canyon and boat ride were very special and all staff were helpful and polite.
There is a good selection of food provided which was plentiful and of good quality.
We were dropped off at our hotel about 7.30pm(started at 6.15am ) A long but very satisfying day thoroughly recommended.
A word of advice .... were sensible footwear and take layers of clothing it can be hot (or cold )

This was the trip of a lifetime. The views from the helicopter and boat are worth the price of the trip.

We saw everything from every angle!
Good organisation at the start of the day, took a while to get to the fab helicopter ride but not much hanging about after that!
We did the skywalk which, unfortunately, the owners have made all about the expensive photos - I wouldn't bother doing it in future.
Not much time to look aroud the vantage points and get food but then you are trying to cram a lot into a short space of time so that is to be expected!!!
All in all we're glad we picked this trip over any others as it gave you longer in the canyon.
P.S. brill, interesting and informative driver!

wow. what a trip. great coach,beat the queues for the chopper ride and boy, what a ride, smooth then somebody took the floor away and there was the biggest hole in the world i have ever seen. the boat trip along the colorado river at the bottom was amazing. the skywalk was awesom, infact there arent enough adjectives for this phenomenon. the only draw back was that we didnt have enough time to visit the ranch. would recomend this trip to anyone, even if you are travel sick! i did the coach, helecopter, boat and skywalk and was absolutely fine, and i can suffer on a kids swing!
thanks viator, it was fantastic, value indeed for money

The Grand Canyon is amazing! We were disappointed. Could not complete the tour with the helicopter and boat ride as there was a fire that caused smoke haze to make that part of the journey unsafe. There was still plenty of spectacular scenery to see and our time there went very quickly. The Skywalk was great and not as scary as I had thought it would be.
We had a meal included in the ticket and it was also very nice.

It was very interesting trip for all of us. Good drivers, comfortable bus and beautiful landscapes. The only thing is that it is not enough time to see ALL you want :-) though there was a lot to see within the framework of this tour. Very reasonable price for such package and very reasonable choice for those who wants to visit the Grand Canyon.
