We were picked up on time and our trip was pleasant. The copter ride was awesome! The pilot was informative about the flight and very accommodating. Of course, the view was awesome! We didn’t have enough time to go to the ranch. I would have liked the time to do the zip line. Overall great experience! I would recommend it.
Four of us did the trip and had an absolutely great driver, knowledge imparter, comedian Barry.
Out breakfast was on the seat as we got in, water available all day.
Barry pointed out so many things to us, was able to answer all questions.
Stop at the Hoover Dam was interesting and time for pictures and walk about.
Stop at the Joshua tree was amazing, seeing the trees, other cactus, fresh dung, holes dug into the ground.
The helicopter trip with Jamison as our pilot was fantastic. Most of this was our first ride. No one fainted, yelled or passed out!!!!
Heading over the first edge, banking around the outputting rocks was amazing and scary at the same time.
The views were breathtaking and were able to keep you well occupied.
The ability to walk around the bottom, see the landscape, take pictures was amazing.
Back up top, the lunch in the western set up town was great beans, ribs, coleslaw etc.
Drives to three sites to see various angles of the canyon and the great river below.
Drive home through the dessert, a few of the local towns Boulder, Henderson was interesting.
This trip was absolutely amazing from the moment we were picked up until we were dropped off. Our tour guide, Peter, couldn't have been any better and was extremely knowledgeable about the Las Vegas area, as well as the different locations we visited on the tour. We were picked up in a very nice new SUV and were given a bag containing a danish, a small bag of peanuts, a cheese stick, and a bottle of orange juice. My husband and I are not big breakfast eaters and already gotten a coffee before being picked up, so this Continental Breakfast' was fine with us. The first stop on the tour was the Hoover Dam and Peter took us to the perfect location for photo ops. Since it was still early, there were no crowds and we were able to get some incredible photos. Peter even took photos of my husband and I on my cell phone. Next stop was a visit to the Joshua Tree Forest which was very interesting to see the different types of vegetation. Next on the trip was the helicopter ride and landing!at the Grand Canyon. This was incredible!!!! We had another couple on our trip and our pilot had my husband and I ride up front on the way to the landing site and then we switched with the others It was breathtaking to see the canyon up close. After the helicopter ride, Peter escorted us to lunch at the the Hualapai ranch. The ranch was geared more for children, so we decided to eat and head to the canyon tour. Lunch was good, with a choice of chicken or ribs and typical barbecue sides. My husband and I had the ribs and they were really good. After lunch, we went on the tour of the Grand Canyon locations and Peter continued describing the history of the area and we enjoyed all of the knowledge that he shared. He pointed out different sites and told us about interesting things like the Bat Cave and he even took photos of us at the site where the famous car goes over the cliff scene from Thelma and Louise was filmed and I got a pretty decent photo of the wreckage. After the day was over, Peter provide cold bottle water and snacks for the ride back to our hotel. He continued to offer tidbits about the area and we could tell he definitely was very knowledgeable about the locations visited on the tour and felt that we had enjoyed a wonderful day of both a once-in-a lifetime adventure and an up close history lesson. The best souvenirs were the 100 photos we took on this incredible tour. Our guide, Peter, was patient, knowledgeable, took lots of photos of my husband and I, and there is absolutely nothing we would have changed about this day. If you are considering this trip, I would encourage you to book it...you will definitely be glad you did.
Une journée magique même si nous n'avons pas pu faire l'hélicoptère suite à un crash dans le grand canyon la veille , finalement partir en pick up a été super . Arrêt au barrage Hoover , au ranch Halapaï et au grand canyon avec un guide à l'écoute et vraiment exceptionnel . Je refais volontiers et je conseille à tous les amoureux des grands espaces . I love .....
This trip is an amazing value for money. Our guide for the day was Phil who had an in depth knowledge of the area and the history around all the areas we visited. He had a good sense of humour and was always concerned about the well being of his group, making sure he knew where we were at all times without limiting us unless necessary. The helicopter pilot was very professional and ensured we all had a good trip, but the visit to the Native American Village was also really interesting. The meal served for lunch was really tasty and the extra effort put in by Phillip to make sure everything was organised and on time was much appreciated by all.
The helicopter ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon was awesome, but we also really enjoyed driving to different points of the canyon such as eagle point, the skywalk, and guano point. Our tour guide Mike was great. He always made sure we had enough time to see and do everything we wanted to do at each stop. He made sure we were comfortable and had enough water to stay hydrated in the 112 degree temps. I would highly recommend this trip.
