Excellent experience. Outstanding views of the canyon and Hoover Dam from the helicopter, awesome to walk out over the canyon rim on the skywalk, and to land at the bottom of the canyon. Helicopter pilot was very good and helpful.
Great trip - Mustang helicopters were really good - excellent helicopters and funny/professional pilot.
The tour was very good and well organised but we had a problem
Myself and my wife were both 65 years old just before we came out to the USA
and when we went on the trip we were told that we had not booked to go down into the
canyon as it was a big trip for us we thought we had booked all in with you and then we had to
pay a further 300 to go down this was money we did not want to spend
Helicopter is definitely the way to go, shaved many hours off a bus tour with the same destinations. A small group of 6 or 7 people under the guidance of a knowledgeable pilot suited me fine. I wanted to get down closer to the Colorado river and look up at the canyon walls, so the optional Below-the-Rim landing was great for that. Skywalk didn't feel as exposed as I thought it would be, so if you are only a little bit afraid of heights, have a go - it felt very safe to me.
From start to finish, this tour was amazing. our pilot was excellent and gave great commentary during the helicopter ride. We landed below the rim which was well worth it, we had time to take photos and enjoy the view before we headed back up! There is a bus service which takes you to the 3 areas. The first being the ranch we didn't get off here we carried on to the second stop to take in the views which were brilliant, but the most spectacular viewing area is Guano point. We had our lunch here, which was very tasty. I would definitely recommend this trip and I would go again myself.
The trip was for my daughter and #39;s 20th birthday....she told me she had amazing time... thank-you
Great helicopter tour from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon including a visit to the Skywalk and a landing at the base of the canyon. Everything was perfectly organised - from the pick-up at the hotel in the morning to the drop-off in the early afternoon. Highly recommended!
This trip puts the WOW in WOW. First time ever visiting the Grand Canyon and to get to see if via air was even better. We had Capt. Keith flying our helicopter and he was a terrific guide and a highly skilled pilot. Flyovers on the Hoover Dam was a bonus. Flying into the Grand Canyon, the helicopter just gets sucked into the scale of how big it is. Recommend you take the early morning tour to avoid all the tourists coming in by bus as once you get to the landing area for the lookouts and Skywalk, that line can be quite long to get on the bus and you only have so much time at each stop. The Skywalk was a glad I can check it off the bucket list. You can't bring a camera out there, but they will take your photo of you. Pretty nifty to actually walk right out over the canyon. Lots of spots for other photos. Grab your lunch at this stop as the main transportation hub doesn't honor the lunch coupon. The flight down to the canyon floor was probably the best part of the trip. This is the sound of silence. Amazing. Saw it above, below inside, one happy birthday boy.
Extremely well organized!!! I wouldn and #39;t imagine crossing all these distances by bus or missing the views we had. It.wouldn t be the same for sure.the landing below the rim was nice.our pilot Miguel was amazing.Skywalk not advised for those fearing heights!!!extreme sensations.
It is not the South rim or the north rim. But this was very convenient and the west rim allows you to helicopter in to the floor. Also the skywalk allows you to walk out aver the canyon and look straight down 4000 feet.
This trip was everything that I expected. Our guide was knowledgeable and I felt completely safe with him on the copter my first time in a helicopter.
This was an absolute highlight of our holiday and from the minute we were picked up and transported to the helicopter it was an amazing day. The Grand Canyon itself was humbling to behold and not being too crowded we were able to see everything without too many people. Our Pilot was a wealth of information and we were fortunate enough to have no other passengers when we flew down to the West Rim so were able to sit up the front and really take in the view. I did think the Ranch was a little tired although a few new buildings were in the process of being built but it was something different to see. All in all a great day out. We went early in the morning and by the time we were leaving in the afternoon it was becoming a lot more crowded so this may be something to consider.
wonderful experience that we would do again and recommend to others. The perfect way to experience the beauty of the Grand Canyon
A really pleasent trip! Probably the best and smoothest way great way to experience the Grand Canyon. I haven and #39;t been at any of the other rims, but we enjoy the western rim. Lots of nice views as well as the Sky walk and west rim seems to have a warmer climate than south rim during winter months.
The whole day was fantastic and recommend the Below-the-Rim Landing, however once you have arrived by Helicopter the Skywalk was a little underwhelming.
The helicopter trip and views, above and below the rim, were phenomenal they exceed my expectations. The rim activities added some more depth but the crowds detracted a bit from the pleasure of being there. I thought the Skywalk was interesting but wouldn't recommend it--it just didn't add very much, especially since cameras weren't permitted.
The helicopter tour of the canyon was excellent. Our pilot was very nice, professional and informative of the canyon, lake mead, etc. We were very pleased with everything about this tour. Good job!
We had a perfect day and was the highlight of our 6 days stay at Vegas. Highly recommend the tour and pay for the extras - land below the rim as well as the skywalk!
You have to go to the canyon floor to really experience it. Traveling by helicopter from Henderson reduced the trip from 4 hours to 45 minutes. The trip is to the West rim so it includes the skywalk which is unbelievable. 4000 feet straight down. You cannot take your cameras on to the skywalk you have to buy their photos of you. But you can take pictures right next to it The helicopter ride to the floor made the trip. on the floor looking up is surreal.
It's breathtakingly beautiful to experience the Grand Canyon this way! We all had a wonderful time. Our compliments to our pilot, Jeremy! Thank you so much!
I purchased this tour for our Anniversary. It was fabulous !! Our pilot Miguel was very informative. The helicopter is the way to go as it saved time and the views were incredible. the whole way there. Definitely do the trip to the bottom it and #39;s quick but amazing. Skywalk was incredible too !!
