The title of this tour does not disappoint! What a fantastic tour from a very professional outfit. Our Pilot John was quick to assess any pre-flight nerves and kept up a string of corny jokes to keep everyone at their ease as well as a very informative commentary. The journey was incredible and gives some pretty amazing photo opportunities and landing on the canyon floor gives a fantastic perspective. Back to the rim and we did the whistle stop tour of the 3 visit points. If i had one complaint it would be that this a bit rushed if you want to see all of them. An extra hour would make this faultless. In the end, we had too little time to spend at the last stop where some native american crafts were being sold. But overall this was the highlight of our Vegas trip we would highly recommend the operators Sundance helicopters.
We took the 1:00 pm tour hoping it would be sunset on our way back and we lucked out. It was great. You start with a 40 minute helicopter ride from Vegas. There is a recorded commentary for parts of the trip, plus the driver chimes in as well. Our driver was John S. and he was great. On the way to the Canyon we flew over the Hoover Dam and the Joshua Tree forest. Once at the Canyon, we landed at the bottom for a 15-20 minute boat ride on the Colorado river where we learned more about the Canyon. We then flew to the top of the Canyon where we had about 2 hours to stop at three stops by bus. I would recommend skipping stop 1 unless you'd like to take a ride on a horse and carriage or mechanical bull. Stops 2 and 3 were the best. I wish we had more time at Stop 3. The views were incredible. It would have been nice to have an extra hour for this part of the tour to really get to enjoy the views. Also, we didn't stop to eat, so I cannot comment on the food. On the ride back the sun was setting and the lights were on on the strip. We flew over Freemont Street and the Strip. It was great. Also, the driver is very fair about sitting up front. On the way to the Canyon our party sat up front and on the way back the other party sat up front. The pilot is knowledgeable and can answer questions. I would highly recommend this trip.
Awesome in every way!! Not to be missed. From pick up by limo to return by limo could not be faulted. Helicopter flight was just amazing, flying through the Gran Canyon was amazing. Boat trip on Colorado River was excellent. Much better than expected. Time at rim was a bit on the short side for us but suited others. Scenery just spectacular. Our helicopter pilot, Raymond was excellent and informative. A definite must do trip.
Brilliant! An excellent day! Our pilot, Byron, was fantastic......very informative with his commentary and witty as well!
Absolutely wonderful trip. The helicopter ride was a great way to see the Grand Canyon and landing at the bottom for the boat ride was the best!!
you have to do this tour, amazing experience that you can fly through canyon, only with helicopter that you can do this, highly recommended
Fabulous way to see one on the World's wonders. Great pilot, made day very enjoyable. I would use this company again.
Worth every penny. A great adventure with breath-taking views and plenty of memorable experiences. The tour is well organised and the crew are friendly. Only downside is wanting more time at the eagle viewing point.
What a wonderful experience. The staff was friendly and very helpful. A must if you are in Las Vegas.
Had an awesome day. Our pilot Weston was great. He explained everything we were seeing and even answered the out of the blue questions from the 6 year old in the back seat.
All in all a day we will remember for many many years.
Employees at sundance are great! At every point colorado river, in the sundance office, at the grand canyon: there is immediately someone who leads you the right way.
The tour was exciting. However the skywalk was not so impresive as we thought,
Amazing trip can't rate it highly enough! From the limo pickup, the great helicopter ride Alex our pilot was very informative to the boat trip again our guide was very good the lunch was tasty and as for the views, what can I say. Then we flew down the strip to finish the day. Fantastic VIP treatment all the way well worth the money.
Awesome but the boatride was way too short. Would have liked more time on the helicopter to see the other end of the Grand Canyon. I am told that is far more scenic.
I went on this tour two days ago and it was amazing. My dad and I booked the early morning departure for 6:45am. The ride to the grand canyon was amazing. We had Devin as our pilot and he was great! The views on the way to the canyon were incredible, as was the descent into the canyon. The boat ride was a little short, but was a great different perspective of the canyon I would have never otherwise seen. After being flown back to the rim and getting on the bus, we got off at the first stop. There wasn't much to see from this stop, but it was a cute little place. The second stop was the skywalk, which we purchased. I highly recommend the earliest tour, the weather was cooler and we got on the skywalk with no line as soon as it opened. We were able to spend some time on the skywalk without it being too crowded. I stayed there for about an hour taking in the breathtaking views before heading onto the last stop. Upon arriving, we got our lunch even though it was about 10a. It was delicious and we were able to eat with an incredible view. I highly recommend waiting until the 3rd stop for food, though I did not try anything at the previous stops. The only drawback was that we were told to be back on the bus by 11:15a to get back to the helicopter for our ride back. Upon arriving we were told to come back around noon so we walked around the gift shop. When we came back around noon, we were told to wait a little longer for our pilot. If we had known we were going to have so much extra time, we would have spent it at one of the last two stops. I highly recommend this tour to everyone, the views were incredible.

Very well organised trip from start to finish. Excellent way of seeing the Grand Canyon. Plenty of time at the Canyon and good choice of lunch menu. Would highly recommend.
Truly magical - from Limo pick up to the flight with an awesome and clever music track to the Grand Canyon experience itself - this cannot be beaten and gives memories that will last a lifetime. Do be aware that there is an error in the Viator description for the Skywalk add on. It does NOT include a fast-track/skip the line option - so you will queue for around 20 minutes or so - and there is no free photo or souvenir pack - but this does not detract from the experience.
The trip was great. We had a very good pilot. Thank you Travis. Saw much and was very please with the ride.
