Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Grand Canyon West Rim VIP Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
Great experience. Although not cheap, it was worth the price and the best way to see the canyon, the Hoover Dam and the Strip in Vegas. Well Done.Reviewed by: Groa I F, March 2013
unfortunately we picked the day it was raining for the first time in 6months!. eventually we took off to the cowboy ranch first as we got upgraded. but due to the weather we were at the ranch for about 3hrs. having said that we were looked after very well there. we eventually took off for the grand canyon and it was well worth the wait. fantastic views and an informative pilot!Reviewed by: stephen c, April 2013
Interesting, helpful guide, amaxing views and most definately a must see however this is a long journey and it would have been nice to have been offered a refreshment whilst the pilot refuelled.Reviewed by: Keeley T, April 2013
It wasn't what I expected, but I have never been on a helicopter before. It's worth doing once. You do get "lowered" into the canyon opposed to flying into it. I thought the fly over downtown Las Vegas and the strip went by too fast. We encountered a long delay before our flight was ready - apparently this happens often. Don't be the last flight as you may not be able to travel - too dark.Reviewed by: Keith S, April 2013
Well, we paid for VIP which says we are supposed to get a 90 helicopter ride over the canyon with no stops and we were supposed to go deep into canyon. Well, We flew over the canyon, not for very long, maybe half an hour and we did not go down into the canyon at all. We questioned the tour guide after our stop (we were not supposed to stop) to a museum that did not have anything in it. Pilot was just ok, not really much of a personality. Loved the sites. Luckily I got placed into the front with the pilot because no way would I have been able to deal with getting squished in the back with 6 people who brought bags with them. People should be told that nothing extra except cameras and water should be allowed as it is cramped for space with full capacity. Got back to the airport 45 min. before tour should have ended. So, disappointed in this, especially for the price.Reviewed by: Darcy C, April 2013
