We had such an awesome experience. The helicopter flight was about 1 hr 20 min (longer than we anticipated) and the pilot was phenomenal. Very professional and knowledgeable. The rafting trip was soooo wild..!! Incredible scenery and wildlife (mountain goats and hawks) and the guide was insanely cool (Jeff a.k.a Mike Rowe from Dirty Jobs). Made it very enjoyable with commentary and facts to created a very memorable experience.

Helicopter tour was awesome. Vince was our pilot. He was very knowledgeable and provided useful historic and geologic information. He made sure everyone was ok and enjoying the trip.
Matt was our skipper for the float trip. He was also very knowledgeable and presented interesting information. Our float was in the morning but was still rather hot. Matt found shade for us and stopped twice for us to cool off in the water. He also pointed out big horn sheep in the mountains on our float. We all enjoyed both adventures.

The helicopter tour was great, we had never been in a helicopter before - definitely recommend it! The boat trip was a little long but super informative and cool.

Vince was a wonderful guide as well as a pilot. He made us feel so special. Enjoyed every minute of it. Only bad part was I believe our trip included stopping a skywalk where we could visit area and also was suppose to be flown to raft ride.

This was the highlight to our 10 day Vegas trip. We did many other tours and this one was the best! Recommended for all young and old!

The Grand Canyon helicopter flight was everything we hoped it would be. The pilot was terrific and really entertaining. What a great way to get a birdseye view of the scenery. The Colorado river float was relaxing while giving us a completely different view of the Canyon. Our guide provided the group with interesting and informative facts throughout the entire trip.

Pilots and captains, as well as all the support staff were friendly and competent. It was an all day event, but ran like a well oiled machine. I hated the early pick up, but that was because I didn't realize the drive to the airport was so far. Overall it was a very exciting trip and a good value. I would take this same trip again if I had the chance.

This tour is great and adventurous and we had a good time. If I was going to be picky I would complain that the float part of the tour was very, very, very long! Like 3-4 hours of floating. It was extremely hot and the boat was quite full so I was relieved it when it came to an end. But it was beautiful scenery and a lovely experience.
Also, there was never a chance to be at any look out area of the Grand Canyon. It was just a fly over in the helicopter. I was hoping it would include a stop to the area with the glass bottom look out point.

Our tours were switched around, because we were originally scheduled to river float in the afternoon. However, that wasn’t an issue. We had a very detailed tour of the Hoover Dam area, and at least a couple of hours floating down the Colorado River. Our driver was very knowledge and friendly. We got soaked from the water spraying, but it was quite refreshing, and relaxing as we had a concert and late night before. I thoroughly enjoyed, and would recommend it. However, the helicopter ride was not very pleasant. I was crammed in the front between the pilot and my male companion. I am a small person, and had to sit sideways because I didn’t have enough room to sit back, and even hung over the seat, The shoulder belt dug unto my neck as well. There should have only been one person sitting in the front beside the pilot. The scenery was spectacular, but because of that I just wanted the ride over with. I was really disappointed in that, and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone.

Helicopter pilot was very knowledgeable and shared lots of tidbits with my kids. He was engaged throughout the entire tour. A larger person was seated next to me in back of the helicopter that made it very cramped. Ad on tour states over 250 lbs requires 2 seat purchase. The river tour was VERY wet. The wind picked up that afternoon and everyone was covered over in ponchos. The ad mentions a lazy meander down the river. It was anything but. We got drenched. My kids shoes did not dry out for 2 days. No warning of this in the ad. Person I talked to on the phone said you were on the water from 10-2. We did not leave Hoover Dam until 11 and pulled into dock at 1:20 PM. This included a 20 minute stop to eat. It would have been better if Brian our boat driver was easier on the throttle and we all would not have been subjected to heavy spray from the river.
