Rated 5 out of 5 by Mari2014 Wonderful tour to get an idea of what the Grand Canyon is about
If you have little time this is a perfect way to get to know the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. In less than 4 hours you get an overview of it all that is breathtaking. I Wish I could have stayed at least 30 min more at the bridge/bridge area, store, etc. Ended up rushing at the store where I wanted to buy some things.
You cannot take pictures while on the bridge. Photographers take pictures of you and then you get 1 free. If you want the rest you have to buy them. Make sure you are prepare for that. I think it was $50 for the whole package. Find out. I suggest to Vegas.com or to whoever puts this package together to include price of photos at time of booking.
Other than that, wonderful.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Texo224 Great view of the canyon!
The skywalk provides a great view of the west rim and with the glass floor you can look down 4000 feet to the canyon below. The bad thing is you arent allowed to take a cell phone or camera with you to take photos. You have to pay for photos taken by the skywalk photographers, $40 to $110 depending on which package you choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mac11 very goog experience fly and conect with Grand Canyon
Helicopter pilot (John McArthur excelent in his job and as a service oriented person. You need to fix with the time that you spend at Gran Canyon, I felt pushed, they take their pictures and no time for me to feel and enjoy the Grand Canyon or even time for take a few fotos. Hope you can change tthat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LucasB Great tour!!
The tour was awesome!!
But the pickup time was scheduled for 5:50 AM and the limo showed-up only by 6:15AM, we were waiting since 5:45AM.
It's was 3-hours tour, the snack that was given to us at the end could be better.
All the other things were excellent!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Terence Superb highly recommend it
This tour is excellent you get what you pay for timely pick ups very knowledgeable and funny guides although there are several photos taken by a professional photographer on the skywalk itself only one is free for the rest you have to pay but that's minor if your in vegas for first time or even a second or third time I'd highly recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by memorymaker A super memorable outing...
This helicopter trip was outstanding. A life long memory. I didn't appreciate waiting nearly an hour after my pick up for the tour to begin, and the car that was to return us to our hotel was 40 minutes late.
Despite the waiting I would do it again for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elizabeth77 It's all about the helicopter ride!
This was a great experience! We loved our pilot and had a very smooth ride. The views are as breathtaking as you can imagine. This was my first trip to the Grand Canyon, and I didn't realize we would have so little time to tour the skywalk. This tour really is all about seeing the Grand Canyon from the sky - and it's worth it for the views from above - but the skywalk was amazing and I felt very rushed by our skywalk tour guide. That's why they call it the "skywalk express" tour, I guess. The skywalk tour gude got us some great pics in the time we had, which I appreciated. But, I was quite irritated at the "professional" photographer who failed to point out that we had nametags stuck to our backs in our picture. Once I realized it, the photographer said he that he noticed it, but thought it was funny. I should have asked him to re-take the picture, but felt like we were in such a rush I just didn't. Disappointing because we really had to stretch to afford this tour and it left a bad taste in my mouth. But that's the only reason I didn't go straight 5's on this tour. I would highly recommend it - just know what to expect! Love the ride, the pilot, the tour information, and the views from above!
