What people are saying about Las Vegas

Helicopter & boat ride was awesome, such a contrasting perspective seeing the canyon from the bottom as the river is a lot wider than it looks from above! Bus driver was cool too with lots of stories. Skywalk was ok, but not really worth the hour queue - there’s more queues inside to get the photo. Because we did that we didn’t have time for lunch. Definitely recommend the trip though.

Well worth the money! This was my first time seeing the Grand Canyon and first time flying in a helicopter. I will say, save your money on the Skywalk, bur do the other stops at the overlook area. Skywalk won't let you take your own pictures, so it's a long line waiting to get your picture took.

Travis was the best guide and safe pilot! We were a little nervous but he was cool and calm throughout the tour! He was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor (Area 52) I’d recommend this tour to see the Grand Canyon. Views are breathtaking and life long memories!

Fab experience. We had a calm weather day which was good and you could see for miles. Would highly recommend.

It’s a wonderful experience the quiet, the views. Nice staff, clean waiting area and helicopter.
