Vince was a wonderful guide as well as a pilot. He made us feel so special. Enjoyed every minute of it. Only bad part was I believe our trip included stopping a skywalk where we could visit area and also was suppose to be flown to raft ride.
This was the highlight to our 10 day Vegas trip. We did many other tours and this one was the best! Recommended for all young and old!
The Grand Canyon helicopter flight was everything we hoped it would be. The pilot was terrific and really entertaining. What a great way to get a birdseye view of the scenery. The Colorado river float was relaxing while giving us a completely different view of the Canyon. Our guide provided the group with interesting and informative facts throughout the entire trip.
Pilots and captains, as well as all the support staff were friendly and competent. It was an all day event, but ran like a well oiled machine. I hated the early pick up, but that was because I didn't realize the drive to the airport was so far. Overall it was a very exciting trip and a good value. I would take this same trip again if I had the chance.
My sister, her best friend and I had the BEST time on this tour. It was a surprise for both of them. They didn't know what we were doing until the van picked us up that morning at 5:30am. That was just the first of many enjoyable moments of the day! All of our drivers were great along the trip. Our first driver, a woman, I'm posting this much delayed after our trip, so I've forgotten everyone's names was so great and she made a stop for us at the Las Vegas sign, which was particularly special, since we were there a week post LV horror, and the whole area had been made into a mass memorial for all the victims. This being my first time ever in Vegas, this first time seeing the famous sign will forever be etched in my memory. The crosses set up for each victim, all marked, decorated and adorned especially for them, seemed to go on and on. These memorials really put into perspective just how many innocent lives had really been taken. After our short stop we continued on to the helicopter adventure. After a brief info session, we stepped out to our heli with our pilot - a bearded Tom Cruise look alike, a co-worker couple from Sweden and away we went! The sun had just come up and the beauty was indescribable. Seeing this landscape from above was something I'll never forget! We stopped mid-way at the gift shop run by I believe the Hualapai Indians. My sister and I purchased a couple items, because they were cool, but also because the young man we were talking to there was genuinely one of the nicest people we'd EVER met. Our pilot Tom offered up a lot of very interesting info on our trip, and we did NOT want it to be over! BUT - we still had our river float coming up. We again had the greatest time on this portion! We had made friends on our initial bus ride with a fun couple from Wisconsin, who we are still in contact with, and we partied it up on the river! We brought drinks with us to enjoy we seemed to be the only ones who did?!? Our guide was informative and funny. Half of our raft was an Asian group that was covering themselves in their coats and were all DRENCHED in sweat. Even in October it got pretty hot on the river! We stopped at one point and a couple of the guys jumped right into the water as did we but we had suits on! We were tired after the trip - but not too tired to enjoy the Vegas nightlife! I think the point of this excursion, as with most, is you get out of it what you bring to it. So if you're out to have fun, you will!
Helicopter ride was the best part. Matt was the pilot and he was cool and very informative.. the rafting part was okay - the tide told a few too many corny jokes for my liking. Very informative and pretty.
This as my 2nd time on this trip did it last year as well . Both Tyler the pilot and Jodi were experts in commentary and answering any Questions . I would recommend it , its worth every penny
This was a great trip and everyone was really friendly and helpful. We loved the boat trip along the Colorado with Brian, very informative. We were lucky enough to get a limo ride back to our hotel, an added bonus with John!!! Fabulous trip, highly recommend!
Wow wow and double wow! The most amazing trip and incredible value. Darren the pilot was so knowledgeable about the area and pointed out so much of interest and the flight lasted for longer than we thought it would which was great. The raft part of the trip was equally fantastic. Jodi our raft pilot really knew her stuff and was so entertaining. We were on the water three hours which was such fun, stopping for lunch and at other points for photo opportunities etc. Wonderful day and excellent value with brilliant door to door service.
Loved this trip, top to bottom -. Captain Brian was great informative and entertaining. Be prepared, you will get wet if you are sitting in the front on the boat. Pilot Scott was equally amazing, providing much information on the sights. The views were spectacular! In a heartbeat, I would take this tour again.
5 star. great trip. Helicopter Pilot was informative and lively. Raft tour guide Jody was wonderful. I sat in the front and got very wet. It was a hot day so that felt great.
I've been on some great trips but nothing compares. The whole day is mind blowing. Yes it's an expensive trip. But it's honestly worth every penny. 5 star helicopter tours are amazing. Everyone of them make you feel special. Guys thank you so much for a once in a life in a lifetime experience
We were picked up at 5.30am from our hotel on the strip, we met our helicopter pilot Tyler and were up in the air by 7am, we flew over Lake Mead and the canyon for about 35 minutes then landed at one of the Indian settlements for roughly 20 minutes, then back on the helicopter for another 35 minutes over the Hoover Dam and more of the canyon and Colorado River. Tyler was a very friendly and informative pilot, all 6 passengers were 1st time flyers and he was brilliant with us, the views from the helicopter were incredible. After the helicopter we were taken to Lake Mead and then on to the bottom of the Hoover Dam for the 3 hour water raft ride along the Colarado river, the guide was very informative and ensured we drank plenty of water and followed her instructions to keep cool in 106' heat, it was another amazing experience, so tranquil and awe inspiring, we stopped half way for lunch and ended Up back at our hotel around 4.30pm. We highly recommend this trip, it was a truly unforgettable experience above and at the bottom of the canyon.
With neither of us having flown in a helicopter before, my wife and I were very nervous about the flight. This was put to rest as soon as we got to altitude and moving along. The flight was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the airport where we met up with the pilot and had a great photo op in front of the helicopter on the landing pad. Travis was our pilot and he was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us many fun facts all while being very personable. The views were incredible while flying, and we even got to see where we were going to enter the river on our raft adventure. Once done with the flight to and from the Grand Canyon, we were taken to the area for the rafting adventure where we were given our lunch and a sports water bottle. The rafting segment was totally different from the helicopter segment. While in the helicopter you can see the walls and how big they are, but you don't really appreciate just how high the walls are until you are floating down the river. After the river float we were taken back to the airport and back to our hotel. We would both recommend any one that is looking to do something memorable in Vegas, to go on this package. We both had a great time and would love to do it again.
Here are a few pointers if you are deciding to go on this trip
1. Bring some snacks. We got picked up from our hotel at 5:30am, and were dropped back off at 4:00pm.
2. Wear a long-sleeve shirt, a hat, and bring a can of sunscreen. There is no shade on the river and it gets hot.
3. Plan on a nap when you get back.
Incredible. So worth it. The trip went exceptionally smooth from pick up at hotel to drop off. Every single person - and there must have been about 20 - was super friendly, and professional. The guides were phenomenal: funny, entertaining, informative, interactive, friendly. I highly recommend
Everything went extremely well. From the booking online, transport, pickup/dropoff, to the excursions chopper and rafting, staff, etc.
Not one single complaint. I've posted reviews on both your Facebook and Website, together with pics!
Absolutely fantastic! Thank you to all! :-
This tour was not cheap but worth it. The flight over the dam and Grand Canyon was awesome. We landed at Grand Canyon west airport with just enough time to visit the gift shop but not enough time to do the Grand Canyon Sky Walk. I think it would be good to not land at the airport and do more flying in the Canyon. The boat ride was fantastic even though it was 114 deg F, the water was 40deg F and very refreshing. If it wasn't such a hot day I don't think I would have got into the river. Lunch was great with plenty of food and we got to take home the six pack cooler bag
Lesley the tour guide was amazing. She gave an informative talk that was peppered with the perfect amount of jokes. We would definitely do this again!
Both pilots, that of the helicopter and the raft trip were highly informative giving great reviews of the geology and history of the sites seen. The helicopter ride was unforgettable affording me and my wife the opportunity to see the land approaching and in the Grand Canyon in a way that can't be equaled. The raft trip was also fantastic, not only did we learn about the geology of the features along the Colorado river that we saw, but also we learned of the efforts that went into building the Hoover Dam. To top the trip off we got to see Mountain Goats and a Bald Eagle that was nesting along our route.
What a wonderful day. I couldn't have asked for a better way to see the Grand Canyon and also the Colorado river. The guides were exceptional and they made the day even better. If you want to see the canyon by helicopter and are interested in rafting the Colorado river then take my advice and book this tour immediately.
