A real great tour. I was very satisfied with how the staff treated me and my wife. We were made to feel very welcome and were very looked after. The trip was one of a kind and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is even thinking about it. Great value for money and well worth it.
My wife and celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and decided to book this tour. This was the highlight of our trip while in Vegas. We had a great time. we were picked up at our hotel, driven to Boulder City Airport. Went through a safety orientation. Then flew to our destination. The pilot was very knowledgeable, and the views were spectacular. We saw Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the awesomeness of the Grand Canyon. We landed on the West Rim of the Canyon for a short time, then took off again back to Boulder City Airport. Overall is was a great experience, and i highly recommend this Helicopter Tour.
Very nice! First class operation. Our pilot was very good and informative.
Well organised. Quick transfer to boulder city, driver friendly and I formative. Front of house staff at the terminal also friendly and Phillip our pilot looked after us , again full of info . Happy to answer questions ( no matter what our children asked).
Good commentary from pilot,amazing sights of the Canyon ,Hoover etc.Did not expect landing to be a commercial stop.Expected a land based view of Canyon.
Return trip could have been more interesting.
Tour time was changed from original time set after we called and confirmed time. They over booked and would and did not try very hard to work with us. We did get a time Findlay to tour but not after messing our original plans up. We also had other tickets and had to loose time and money to deal with agent. Will not use again or recommend to family that is going soon.
I had a great tour guide - van driver. He was gracious and gave a good idea of the helicopter trip. I was disappointed that the time in the canyon was so short. No sooner had we been in the canyon that we arrived at the souvenir shop. It seemed to me the purpose of the trip was to get to the shop. I paid for the video but was in the back row near the window. Nobody would recognize me or see that I was in the helicopter. I should have been in the front row if I was paying $ 74.59. The ride should have been longer and avoid the souvenirs altogether.
WOW thank you Viator I recommend everyone take this helicopter tour it was amazing
The helicopter tour was great. The pilot was very informative, personable and engaging.
One negative aspect of the trip was the hidden fees. I did not appreciate showing up at the air terminal office to discover I owed another $90! The trip was expensive as is. I would have appreciated having the total cost upfront because it may have altered the company I decided to go with.
