We booked the all inclusive package, the entire thing from start to finish was excellent, the service was outstanding and they were very efficient! They do door to door pick up and drop of service, which was fantastic! The tour included the plane to the Grand Canyon and we got to see Hoover Dam which was great (sit in the... More

I booked the day trip that included bus to Bolder airport, flight to the Grand Canyon, Helicopter ride to the bottom and a short boat ride on the river and return including lunch and bus to vista points. The timings were pretty tight but this group is very well organised and it went really well. Yes it is fairly expensive... More

When I first looked at the price my first reaction was: no, lets find something cheaper. But when browsing through the cheaper options you don't get this experience. My plan is not to do this often so we decided to bite the bullet and do the full package of plane-helicopter and boat. We loved it. It was worth the steep... More

I booked a trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and flew with Scenic airlines. The check in process at the terminal was very simple and straight forward, although I was somewhat surprised that there was no security screening??? I was given a seat number and then boarded the small aircraft. It was fairly old, cramped and smelt... More

We booked a tour that included a helicopter flight down into the Grand Canyon, pontoon on the Colorado river, and skywalk - that says it's going to be a 7 hour day; we spent over 3 hours of that day just waiting to be picked up and waiting at the boulder city terminal. Then we were only given about 1... More

We chose a light aircraft flight and it was a hit! Very efficient check-in. Very friendly service. We were 4 people and we got all the space near the windows - great! Very efficient boarding. The very small airplane, but very convenient. People who have problems with flying can be a problem, because in high winds sheds light aircraft. The... More

We had a very early start, picked up at our hotel in Vegas at 4.30 am. We caught a bus to Boulder City, then a small plane to the canyon, went on a helicopter down to the canyon floor (the best part!!), went down the Colorado River on a pontoon, back in the helicopter to the top, then boarded a...
