No question, a MUST DO for your Vegas trip. The sights and experience from the helicopter are unforgettable. From the moment we were picked up to the end of the day, Mitch & Robbie were excellent hosts who had the whole bus laughing and intrigued by the weird and wonderful facts of Las Vegas. We upgraded on the bus to include the boat tour which means you actually land at the bottom of the canyon. So for an extra $30 each, this was much better value than the Sky Walk. You will get just as good photos standing next to the Sky Walk so not worth it in my opinion. Hoover Dam was good to see too, but a bit dark for photos towards the end of the day. +ve’s - friendly informative tour service, good lunch/snacks provided, comfortable transportation, amazing views/photos to take home -ve’s - if you sit on the right hand side of the bus, you’ll get better photos passing Hoover Dam... we were sat on the left. Also you don’t get to walk across the dam which would have been a bonus.
Our family of 5 thoroughly enjoyed the day. We were contacted by the tour company in the days leading up to the event confirming our trip. We were then contacted the day before to confirm the pick up location and time. The coach departed at 7am and did a stop at the Hoover dam. The helicopter ride was really worth the money. We took fantastic photos of the Grand Canyon. We were then taken on a gentle boat ride along the Colorado river before taken via helicopter back to the top. We then took the shuttle bus to other viewing points before being taken back to Vegas via coach. Arrived back in Vegas for 5.30pm. We had a choice of sandwiches for the journey all included in the price. FYI we were glad we didn’t do the sky walk. Note you can’t photos whist walking on the bride, you have to buy their professional photos.
The trip was comfortable. The guide was knowledgeable and courteous. While we spent more time than needed at some of the sites - like "Last Stop" - I would have enjoyed a stop on the way back at the historic 'Boulder City'. The helicopter tour could have been longer by ten minutes helping see both sides of the canyon closer. The boat ride was very good.
was great Jorge and Eve were our drivers.... everything was as described and we were given background and history about alot of what we saw... highly recommend helicopter and pontoon boat addition .. didnt do skywalk...
