It was Fantastic, everything we've wanted to do. We wished we could have spent more time there, no fault to the tour guide. It was due to other tourist holding us up.

Tour was great, staff at heliusa not so much. When we called to confirm on the day we arrived at LV, Heliusa changed our pick up time from 9am to 6am! We paid a premium for the late morning departure as we had 2 young kids with us, so this is unacceptable. Heliusa insisted for us to take the 6am bus+helicopter tour and rudely told us to get a refund from viator if we didn't. When my wife asked to speak to the manager, the lady who spoke to us said she WAS the manager! That says a lot about this company. We didn't budge and countered every word she said and in the end she upgraded us to the more expensive all-helicopter tour which we thoroughly enjoyed. We all had a blast. This tour goes to the West rim. Personally, the South rim is more impressive than the west (we visited the South rim 3 years ago.) But for repeat visitors, this is a new way of enjoying the Grand Canyon.

Our tour guide Randy was great all day. He was very knowledgeable about the area. The whole day start to finish was a great value for the money. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting to get a well rounded experience.

From start to finish this trip was amazing, mainly down to our guide Rich who was funny and very informative. The ranch was great fun, the helicopter ride amazing, definitly do the horseriding. We stopped at the hoover dam which was incredible and also the vegas sign very unexpected. A must do trip!

Fabulous-starting from hotel pickup by our driver cum tour guide Rich (cool guy). The photo-breaks were nice and seemed to be well planned. Rich added a few extra spots to everyone's delight! Great food and wow - the chopper ride was the best and surprisingly the cheapest you can get in GC West.

Overall it was a great experience. Our bus was comfortable and our driver, Bill, was very friendly and was just wonderful as a tour guide.
The food at the ranch was good and substantial. The helicopter ride was safe and the canyon was breathtaking. Totally worth it, possibly once in a lifetime kind of a thing.

Brilliant day! Picked up bright and early from our hotel, Rich our tour guide was awesome, talked the whole way there with fantastic information and made lots of stops for pictures and information. We saw the hoover dam from the bridge and on the way back went to the dam itself, lake meade, black mountains, river colarado, Joshua forest and so much more. We got to the ranch and were whisked away in our state of the art helicopter 20 minutes of the spectacular Grand Canyon was enough and spectacular. Back at the Ranch we enjoyed a SUPERB lunch of juicy pork ribs which fell off the bone, cowboy beans, corn on the cob and roll while being serenaded by a real cowboy with Western songs. We took the horse ride although the option for a wagon was available, well worth it and the ride through the desert was such an experience no buffalo but it didnt matter, back at the ranch we tried lassoing, horse shoe games and enjoying the histories and stories of the Ranch. Staff were lovely and well equip especially with lots of cold water as it was very hot. Few more stops on the way home for pictures and back to our hotel for early evening dropped back at our hotel. Book it a fantastic day you won’t regret. Say hi from Kate and Elle if you get Rich he is such a great guy and tour guide. Can't rate this highly enough nice way to break your holiday up and get away from the busy strip to see another way of life and the desert, you will get so much for your money booking this trip it is just BRILLIANT 10 STARS!!!

Our trip to the ranch was fantastic! Right from the start we were picked up by Bill who was very welcoming. He drove us out to Hoover Dam and kept us entertained, then on to the ranch where he made sure everything we needed was looked after. The chopper ride with MD was great, in and around the Canyon, down close to the huge rock walls. Then the trail ride through the countryside. Not just along a made track, but up and down and through scrub and bush on horses that were easy to ride even for a novice. Then a magnificent rib lunch that was just what the doctor ordered after all the excitement. A stroll around the ranch and back into the bus for the drive home. We highly recommend this trip if you're going to the canyon. You could walk on a glass floor and look down or you can hop in a chopper and buzz through the canyon, and if you have an interest in the west or horses you just can't go wrong.

We found both elements of this tour to be enjoyable and therefore memorable. The Ranch experience was for us a new experience; the 'staff' were without exeption friendly and the food provided was excellent.

We are tempted to repeat the tour 'though it would involve us in an 11,000 mile journey!

Really great lunch and helicopter ride. Our bus driver was great, but I must say, the "show" was really not worth it and we waited around for over an hour just sitting there just to be able to go on our helicopter tour. I really would have liked to see more of Grand Canyon Ranch, but didn't wnt to spend the extra money to do a wagon ride or hoseback ride. For the moneyI paid for the tour, I feel like these should have been included anyway.
