Reviews & ratings from fellow travelers
Read what other travelers think about the Grand Canyon West Rim Tour, Helicopter to Canyon Floor & Colorado River Pontoon Boat Combo and optional Skywalk (Bus). We only accept reviews from actual, confirmed travelers who purchased the tour / activity from us, so you can be sure the reviews are unbiased and authentic.
We loved the helicopter trip and the pontoon boats on the river. The perspective one gets on the river is totally different than at the top of the Grand Canyon looking down. It is so very beautiful and awe inspiring frm the river!
My only complaint is the time spent waiting for your turn on the helicopter and especially the long lines waiting for the bus transport between the different points.

was a great trip our tour guide tommy was awsome...was way more than we expected. would have liked to have a little more time at the canyon as we did not get to see the village another hour would have been great.

We had a wonderful time, the Helicopter and Boat ride were amazing and Skywalk was great. Good choice of food. Only down side was could have done with a little more time to get round all 3 stops after doing the heli/boat experience.

Great day tour guide was great and very helpful. Helicopter is more expensive but totally worth it best way to see the canyon. And the pontoon ride is very cool as well

A definite must if you want to experience the Grand Canyon!!! With the helicopter, boat, skywalk and lunch at the view point, we didnt have time to visit the ranch though. The complimentary coffee, juice & pastry early morning was a nice surprise. Our bus driver Mike was very entertaining. Organisation of the tour is excellent and we never waited more than 5-10 minutes to do anything. The helicopter/boat experience of the canyon was completely different than the experience of viewing the Canyon from the viewpoint. Both was a once in a lifetime experience of Gods creation that you cannot put into words.

our driver dwayne was absolutely brilliant, he made the trip worth it alone. He was very informatiff and made the ride to the grand canyon fun. The helicopter tour was amazing and we loved the boat trip which was very good, even though my wife struggled to get back up to the helicopter this was not anything to do with yourselves. The cowboy town was fun and the food there was really good to, the corn bread was to die for. We will recomend this trip to all of our friends as we really had the time of our lives.

It was a wonderful tour. The bus driver did a great job and added interesting information about
Nevada as we drove to the Grand Canyon. It was a great tour!

An early start for a great day! The driver was really informative and chatty going, realised we were tired on the way home and let us sleep or watch a film (but the screen nearest us didnt work).
W had a couple of quick stops enroute which was nice. We chose the coach, helicopter, boat trip and sky walk, but could go to the last viewpoint as we ran out of time. We got back to the bus, only to find that we waited 30 mins for others to get onto the bus, this time would have benefitted us to see the last viewpoint which was rather annoying!
A definate awesome experience!
