If you only have time or money for one adventure out of Las Vegas, this must be it. The pilot was super friendly and knowledgeable and kept us amused with his jokes. The pick up by limo from the Bellagio started the adventure in style. Seeing the strip, the Hoover Dam, the Grand Canyon from the air was very special. The raft ride on the Colorado River was relaxing and spectacular at the same time. The photo opportunities were endless and the view from the sky deck stunning - not for the feint-hearted. Only criticisms were that we were squeezed into the helicopter like sardines - one too many in my opinion. Also - no good food to be had - the Indian Village was a total let-down.

The title of this tour does not disappoint! What a fantastic tour from a very professional outfit. Our Pilot John was quick to assess any pre-flight nerves and kept up a string of corny jokes to keep everyone at their ease as well as a very informative commentary. The journey was incredible and gives some pretty amazing photo opportunities and landing on the canyon floor gives a fantastic perspective. Back to the rim and we did the whistle stop tour of the 3 visit points. If i had one complaint it would be that this a bit rushed if you want to see all of them. An extra hour would make this faultless. In the end, we had too little time to spend at the last stop where some native american crafts were being sold. But overall this was the highlight of our Vegas trip we would highly recommend the operators Sundance helicopters.

We took the 1:00 pm tour hoping it would be sunset on our way back and we lucked out. It was great. You start with a 40 minute helicopter ride from Vegas. There is a recorded commentary for parts of the trip, plus the driver chimes in as well. Our driver was John S. and he was great. On the way to the Canyon we flew over the Hoover Dam and the Joshua Tree forest. Once at the Canyon, we landed at the bottom for a 15-20 minute boat ride on the Colorado river where we learned more about the Canyon. We then flew to the top of the Canyon where we had about 2 hours to stop at three stops by bus. I would recommend skipping stop 1 unless you'd like to take a ride on a horse and carriage or mechanical bull. Stops 2 and 3 were the best. I wish we had more time at Stop 3. The views were incredible. It would have been nice to have an extra hour for this part of the tour to really get to enjoy the views. Also, we didn't stop to eat, so I cannot comment on the food. On the ride back the sun was setting and the lights were on on the strip. We flew over Freemont Street and the Strip. It was great. Also, the driver is very fair about sitting up front. On the way to the Canyon our party sat up front and on the way back the other party sat up front. The pilot is knowledgeable and can answer questions. I would highly recommend this trip.

Awesome in every way!! Not to be missed. From pick up by limo to return by limo could not be faulted. Helicopter flight was just amazing, flying through the Gran Canyon was amazing. Boat trip on Colorado River was excellent. Much better than expected. Time at rim was a bit on the short side for us but suited others. Scenery just spectacular. Our helicopter pilot, Raymond was excellent and informative. A definite must do trip.
