Rated 2 out of 5 by elilbitz Room for improvement
Tour looked promising from the start when we were picked up at our hotel in a nice shuttle bus with a very outgoing, entertaining, kind and fun tour guide. I think her name was Memo.
After arriving at the Dam, we were on our own to explore and follow their guides. We didn't have a lot of time to explore the entire place and the tour group here was very large. Too large. There was some interesting things learned from the tour, but it was the bare minimum compared to what I've seen from other sites and tours offered. Be forewarned - you cannot bring food or drink here, and what they have to offer at their cafeteria is poor quality fast food and snacks.
We were on another shuttle to the airport for the air tour of the Canyon. This shuttle was on it's last leg. It was rattling and old. Very noisy.
The air tour was a Huge Let Down. The Co Pilot was very personable and friendly and stood for photos prior to flight on what was a 12-14 seater. There was NO A/C ~ which is awful in summer months out in the desert!! I don't think there was any air circulation at all, for that matter. The pilot and co pilot made their welcome announcement and then we were directed to use headphones to listen to the tour. The headphones cranked out a pre-recorded "tour" of basic information abut the dam, the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon. It was not specific to the tour. And the tour was over some of the more bland areas to be seen. I could see a random helicopter here and there and kept thinking it would be better, as they got in closer to see more of the colored rocks and crevasses, etc. Much of what we saw was the more grey and brown sections with less interesting rock formations. And I would have liked to hear more about the villages down below. Learned nothing about them. They were out in the middle of no where with miles and miles before any stores or anything.
Gift shop at end had a few nice things.
Shuttle home was fairly new. Got us back quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephanie2009 Great tour - perfect!
Would absolutely recommend and was worth every penny! The tour guides were great at the Hoover Dam and the captain made sure we saw some spectactular views of the Canyon. Start to finish everything ran smoothly and my husband and I came away with some amazing photos and great memories. And a good way to see both sights if you have limited time in the Vegas area.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gq1984 Wasn't what expected
I was looking for a tour with a helicopter ride over Grand Canyon and thought this was one of it, but air tour was by plane. As it wasn't what I want I didn't take the air tour. I believe it could be more explicit the air ride is done by plane to avoid mistakes like mine (what seems to be common as on same day another couple had same issue).

We saw breathtaking views from our airplane! The pilot was really nice and I would highly recommend this flight to anyone interested in seeing the Grand Canyon!

Rated 4 out of 5 by J123 Great tour. But Bus pickup 45 mins late and pickup at airport never arrived.
As stated above in the review summary. Luckily the airport had it's own free shuttle which they kindly allowed us to avail of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Yoyo48 A Great Tour: I highly recommend it!
I was very pleased with my my Air Tour of the Grand Canyon And Discovery Tour. I was picked up on time, and everything happened as was outlined in the description of the tour; you really can't ask for more than that. I would highly recommend any tour with Vegas.com
