We had an absolutely fantastic time on our helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. The tour was well organised, the pilot and helicopter top notch and the sights unbelievable. The Skywalk is well worth a visit with its spectacular views. Not cheap but worth every penny.
I took my fiancé on the the Grand Canyon Helicoper Tour for his 50th Birthday. The tour from lift-off to landing was well worth the money. Beautiful weather, the scenery was breathtaking; our pilot was informative, friendly and a pleasure to spend the day with. The Grand Canyon was crowded however they do a remarkable job of moving a large amount of people efficiently and effectively. Super Great Day!!
fantastic experience, great enthusiastic pilot, a totally amazing day A vegas must do !!!
This was a great tour and well worth doing. We booked the tour with a "below the rim" landing and this was just amazing, really gave you a sense of how big the canyon is. The skywalk was also brilliant, although you're unable to take your own personal camera's with you. So any pictures, you have to pay for via the professionals, which is a shame, as they're not cheap! We also had lunch included and this was a basic but really tasty meal and made a change to having burger and fries!
The helicopter ride was just a truly great experience in itself and the pilot was very fair in ensuring everybody got a front seat experience, for those that wished to check out the front view! We had a good amount of time in the helicopter and this is probably where a large cost of the trip goes, as it took at least 25-30mins to get to the Grand Canyon. We had not booked to see the Hoover Dam and felt we didn't need to, as the pilot flew us over the dam, so we got a good view of this to.
A brilliant service from the tour company and a special thanks to the pilot Migual.
My 14 year old nephew and I took this tour on our recent trip to Las Vegas. It was the highlight of the trip for both of us. Starting with the shuttle, which picked us up at exactly the time we were told, to the ease of check-in, to the helicopter ride itself, everything went like clockwork. We arrived at the hangar at 7:10, checked-in and waited for our pilot, Tony, to call us to the helicopter at 8:00. Very easy and efficient process.
The ride itself was spectacular. We flew over Lake Mead and to the bottom of the canyon. Everyone has to follow the same flight path so there was no leeway as to what you would see. Luckily, everything was beautiful. The visit to the bottom of the canyon was quick (about 20 minutes), but it was quite thrilling to be so close to the River. I have been to the South Rim twice, but this was my first visit to the West Rim.
From there we flew to the "airport" where we took the shuttle to the Skywalk. (We skipped the first shuttle stop since time was a little limited. The third stop was definitely our favorite and where we spent most of our time.) The Skywalk was a "once is enough" event. It's not as long as it looks in photos and, even with the very limited about of people this time of year, felt crowded. I'm glad I did it once, but wouldn't do it again.
The third stop (Eagle Point and Guano Point) was the prettiest with the best view of the Colorado. We also had a good meal there which was included in the tour price. We spent most of our time here before taking the shuttle back to the helicopter and flying back to Vegas. I'd say that this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I would love to do it again some day.
It was the most amazing day of my life! The tour from pickup to dropping off was perfect.the helicopter pilot was a great laugh the grand canyon was stunning and I cannot wait to go back. Thanks viator for help making our holiday so special.
Our Grand Canyon Helicopter tour was the highlight of our Las Vegas visit. From the pick up our curbside shuttle to the helicopter ride, lunch and the site tours was spectacular. Special kudos to our pilot Matt for his informative description of the sights to his professionalism in the flight. We would rate this experience as 5 star and highly recommend it.
Efficient, well managed, great aircraft and the pilot even played the theme from Top Gun as we were taking off!
Great excursion. The team at the helicopter centre were friendly and helpful and our pilot excellent and entertaining. Going down into the canyon is a must. The site could be clearer as we thought we had booked all the options but your selection and checking out is not as clear as could be.
Most exciting and lovely. The pilot was excellent, knowledgeable and friendly. The helicopter was in perfect condition. The 45 minutes trip from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon was extraordinary, with fantastic views. The descent into the Canyon was amazing, it was so stimulating and serene at the same time, wanted to stay all day long. We will do it all again, worth every penny. Highly recommended. Five big starts……! Don’t forget your camera…..!
