This is one of the best things our family has ever done while on vacation! We had a phenomenal experience. Our limo was 25 minutes late, but Sundance called to let us know so we weren't upset about it. When we got to the airport our wait was very short. We had an excellent pilot (Chris) who made us feel at ease immediately. Seeing the Hoover Dam and the Skywalk on this tour was a perfect use of our limited time. We would recommend this trip to anyone. It's expensive, but is worth every penny!

This is a fab tour! We we're only in Vegas for a week travelling from the UK, and this tour gave us all the impact of the sights with no time wasted hanging around! First class service, and would definately recommend!

The information on the flight was very good. Our guide at the skywalk was also very knowledgable and friendly. Our pilot had great humour and was very competent. Highly recommend this tour

Really recommend this tour, was worth every cent. I am both height sick and have a fear of falling so when the pilot said to sit in the front, I was a little concerned. A few times I just closed my eyes (like when we flew over our hotel) but a few minutes in I was fine and all fear left me as I was mesmerised by the beauty of Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon.
There isn't alot of time to spare when you arrive at the Skywalk so if you were hoping to go to the teepee or see an Indian show, you won't have time. Life's a trade-off, to get front-of-line to the Skywalk was great and the photos came out amazing.

A fantastic 40th birthday treat for my boyfriend! Our pilot was cool, calm and collected which put us completely at ease. It's almost like VIP treatment once you land at the Grand Canyon and the Skywalk is amazing! You also get to stand right near the edge outside!!! This trip was well worth the money as you get to fly over the strip on the way back too. Music in the helicopter was great as well, played 'Indiana Jones' just as you were flying up to, and over, the edge of the Canyon....superb!

Great trip. Helicopter is the only way to do the Grand Canyon. Chuck the pilot was knowledgeable with a very pleasant personality. Glad we did the early tour and avoided the bus tours at the skywalk.

Limo picked us up at hotel at 9am then went to the Luxor to pick up the other 4 people due to join us but they were no shows. Waited there for 10 mins then the limo driver said that was it and took us to the airport. That meant we ended up with a private helicopter for just the two of us. It was amazing! I booked the quickest tour possible and it certainly was that. 45 min flight there with pilot giving us all sorts of info, then flew right up through the canyon with the Indiana Jones theme blasting through our earphones :-). Landed, escorted straight onto a van for the 5 min drive to the skywalk. The driver then accompanies you on the tour so straight past the queues and through the back entrance onto the skywalk, photographer took lots off photos. Spent 10mins on the skywalk then back through, chose our 2 free photos which were put into lovely leather souvenir cases. 10 mins to walk around and take our own photos at the edge, back into the van, back onto the helicopter and 35 mins back to the airport. Limo back to the hotel and we were in the wicked spoon eating lunch by 1pm. This type of whistlestop tour might not suit everyone but it was perfect for us. The limo drivers, tour guide (Rick) and our pilot (John)were all lovely, good fun and full of info. John had only been back in Vegas 2 weeks as he spends his summer months fighting forest fires - he was full of fab stories!
I'd totally recommend this trip. Not the cheapest way to do the canyon but for us it was perfect.
