Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the VIP Deluxe Grand Canyon West Rim and Valley of Fire Helicopter Tour. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We did the VIP Deluxe tour - this included a limo pickup from our hotel on the Vegas trip, helicopter flight out to the Grand Canyon and over the Hoover dam, landing down in the bottom of the canyon enjoying a few glasses of champagne and lunch. We then had a return flight flying over the valley of fire and the Vegas strip. The price also included a photograph of us standing in front of the helicopter. Total flying time was circa 2 hours
This truly was a once in a lifetime experience! We booked via viator and secured a discount hence circa 650 for 2 including all fees
Out pilot was called David - he was great and in addition to the recorded commentary he kept adding other bits of info
The whole experience is very well organised - from booking, to check-in through to the actual flight it was all very professional and effortless
We looked at the other helicopter company's in Vegas but went with this one - we were very impressed and I would be happy to recommend to others - watch out for some booking sites as the price may seem low but then you will be stung with other fees at the check-in. This wasn't the case with this helicopter company - we only had to pay 10 each as a fuel surcharge - read all t and cs carefully if you choose other companies so that you understand the total cost

It was a phenomenal experience. The Grand Canyon is very impressive and of course, not only from the helicopter perspective. We can recommend this tour highly enough.
Absolutely fantastic experience not to be missed. The tour company was very professional, with the pilot Sam being a credit to the company. Only negative was that they had to be reminded to give us our complimentary photo and DVD.
I really enjoyed this tour expect that the helicopter operator was very smug and i would say rude - maybe he was just tried but needs to be more friendly to the tourist.
The limo wasn't all that but mmm overall I did enjoy this trip.
Great trip-met some really nice people, pilot Fred was very informative
The company went to great lengths to provide the service despite airspace limitations imposed by the President's visit to Las Vegas. Staff ( ground and Pilots) very professional and well maintained aircraft
Brilliant! Collected on time, safety information given prior to tour, friendly and informative pilot and very pleasant champagne picnic. Amazing views of the Canyon and also the Strip on our return journey. Slightly cramped seating if in the back of the helicopter and if unlucky to have a full 6 passenger load.
overal a great day. fantastic trip to the Canyon. Pilot was very kniowledgeable and experienced. Valley of Fire option was so so. We flew over it, but couldn't see a lot from the back of the helicopter. Lunch was basic but nice. Most annoying thing was the Limo driver who reminded us that a tip was customary as he supplied the water in the car. He also couldn't stop screaming "awesome" which was not. My recommendation would be to definately go to the canyon via helicopter, valley of fire up to you, and hopefully you have a less annoying Limo Driver.
