We visited on Thanksgiving day Nov 2018. We were staying at Ceasar's palace. The pick was on time as stated. Total number in the Mercedes Sprinter was only 12 (max is 14) which was perfect. After our pick up there were 2 others and we were off on our trip. No wasted time for shuttle transfers etc. either as we went to all the spots in our own vehicle (could leave our belongings there as well as it would be locked up when we got down) First was the stop at Hoover dam about 15 mins which is ample time for pics. We had chosen the helicopter tour of the canyon which was a great experience (about 30-40 mins total) which we finished first and met up with the rest of the group at the ranch. After a hot lunch which was very good we headed to the canyon and spent about 3-3.5 hrs. total walking around/hiking at Guano point. On our way back we stopped at Joshua forest for beautiful pics. We were back in Las Vegas by 5 pm (Total 10-10.5 hrs) and did not feel rushed in any way. Chris our driver and guide was wonderful. He was very cheerful all day even though he had to be away from his family on the holiday--clearly her loved what he did. Very informative about the area/events/history-even the flora and fauna. It was our kids first visit to the Canyon and they enjoyed it thoroughly (not easy to please teens as everybody knows!) We had a great time as well and learnt a lot of new things even though we have been there before. The journey was comfortable and breakfast/lunch and plenty of water was provided. Thank you Chris and Adventure Photo tours for a well organized trip and a memorable experience.

Great guide, fantastic experience and amazing views. The trip covered all the main spots I wanted to see and was informative. The guide was very helpful, for example he went out of his way to find us some bighorn sheep before the tour ended. It was my first ever helicopter trip and I found it an amazing experience giving amazing views of the canyon. I would recommend this trip.

Two in One would be more accurate. The Grand Canyon is great, no matter how you get there. So is the Hover Dam. You also make a 'quick' stop in the Joshua tree forest. The Rustic Hualapai Ranch, is a joke! There is Nothing rustic or real about it. The building are facades, some of them over mobile trailers. Our Tour guide Peter was absolutely GREAT! He make the whole trip worthwhile. We tipped him a 20, and probably should have given him more. PS: The Buffet, is not a buffet. You get your choice of a couple of things, and an all you can drink.

This was a great day. The Helicopter ride is very awesome, but the Grand Canyon was far more impressive from the top then from the bottom! Every aspect of the day was truly memorable, I even seen a marriage proposal! Make sure you make a stop by the magic parlor while visiting the ranch! Mark Crowe had coin and card tricks that were so unreal!

We were picked up on time and our trip was pleasant. The copter ride was awesome! The pilot was informative about the flight and very accommodating. Of course, the view was awesome! We didn’t have enough time to go to the ranch. I would have liked the time to do the zip line. Overall great experience! I would recommend it.

Over all good but the main attraction helicopter ride was only 14 min. 6 min in and 8 min out 20 min stay at the bottom. Flight should be an hour for the amount charged

Four of us did the trip and had an absolutely great driver, knowledge imparter, comedian Barry.
Out breakfast was on the seat as we got in, water available all day.
Barry pointed out so many things to us, was able to answer all questions.
Stop at the Hoover Dam was interesting and time for pictures and walk about.
Stop at the Joshua tree was amazing, seeing the trees, other cactus, fresh dung, holes dug into the ground.
The helicopter trip with Jamison as our pilot was fantastic. Most of this was our first ride. No one fainted, yelled or passed out!!!!
Heading over the first edge, banking around the outputting rocks was amazing and scary at the same time.
The views were breathtaking and were able to keep you well occupied.
The ability to walk around the bottom, see the landscape, take pictures was amazing.
Back up top, the lunch in the western set up town was great beans, ribs, coleslaw etc.
Drives to three sites to see various angles of the canyon and the great river below.
Drive home through the dessert, a few of the local towns Boulder, Henderson was interesting.

This trip was absolutely amazing from the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off. Our tour guide, Peter, couldn't have been any better and was extremely knowledgeable about the Las Vegas area, as well as the different locations we visited on the tour. We were picked up in a very nice new SUV and were given a bag containing a danish, a small bag of peanuts, a cheese stick, and a bottle of orange juice. My husband and I are not big breakfast eaters and already gotten a coffee before being picked up, so this Continental Breakfast' was fine with us. The first stop on the tour was the Hoover Dam and Peter took us to the perfect location for photo ops. Since it was still early, there were no crowds and we were able to get some incredible photos. Peter even took photos of my husband and I on my cell phone. Next stop was a visit to the Joshua Tree Forest which was very interesting to see the different types of vegetation. Next on the trip was the helicopter ride and landing!at the Grand Canyon. This was incredible!!!! We had another couple on our trip and our pilot had my husband and I ride up front on the way to the landing site and then we switched with the others It was breathtaking to see the canyon up close. After the helicopter ride, Peter escorted us to lunch at the the Hualapai ranch. The ranch was geared more for children, so we decided to eat and head to the canyon tour. Lunch was good, with a choice of chicken or ribs and typical barbecue sides. My husband and I had the ribs and they were really good. After lunch, we went on the tour of the Grand Canyon locations and Peter continued describing the history of the area and we enjoyed all of the knowledge that he shared. He pointed out different sites and told us about interesting things like the Bat Cave and he even took photos of us at the site where the famous car goes over the cliff scene from Thelma and Louise was filmed and I got a pretty decent photo of the wreckage. After the day was over, Peter provide cold bottle water and snacks for the ride back to our hotel. He continued to offer tidbits about the area and we could tell he definitely was very knowledgeable about the locations visited on the tour and felt that we had enjoyed a wonderful day of both a once-in-a lifetime adventure and an up close history lesson. The best souvenirs were the 100 photos we took on this incredible tour. Our guide, Peter, was patient, knowledgeable, took lots of photos of my husband and I, and there is absolutely nothing we would have changed about this day. If you are considering this trip, I would encourage you to book it...you will definitely be glad you did.
