During our trip to Las Vegas we planned to surprise our children and took them in the helicopter flight. It was not cheap, but the trip was valuable. The helicopter ride offered better view of the Grand Canyon and was a beautifully new experience. We enjoyed every bit and our children were already flying in the air. There were many helicopters flying in a row and every place was beautiful. The Las Vegas casinos were full of lights and the street performances and light shows were admirable. We avoided the strip shows as we had children. The tour was perfect.
We enjoyed every bit of this tour for four days and the best part was that they allowed us one day free all for ourselves and this was indeed like offering us our personal space. Everything was fine but I was a bit disheartened as lot of Grand Canyon could not be seen. We felt like most of the time was spent in Vegas and the Canyon beginning. Of course, Hoover Dam is worth a visit, yet if more time was allocated to spend in the Grand Canyon itself, it would have certainly been the best. If there is one such tour dedicated only to Grand Canyon, I will certainly book that tour.
Excellent tour with unforgettable experience and lots of wonderful memories. Our tour guide is very professional, speaks fluent English, well-organized, very informative and has a sense of humor. Our driver knows the routes very well and interacts with passengers. Nice travel and view in comfortable front VIP seats.
Excellent tour. Very ambitious for four days, but it exceeds our expectations. Our tour guide, the best, he has the right balance of the politeness of East and the Humor sense of West. Amazing experience, and we want to join other tours in the future. No doubt, I will recommend it.
Neal J. Dillard
Overall the three night four days tour was 4.5/5. The tour guide was excellent, he speaks fluent English and his guide direction, his patient to talk and explanation was clear and make the whole tour very interesting. We went to many places within four days, thanks for the bus driver too. Itinerary was organize, it wasn't delayed, we were the first bus all the time, have not to wait in line that much.
I believe our tour was very enjoyable because of our tour guide, He was very knowledgeable and consistent throughout the whole trip. He spoke both in Chinese and then translated in English. Every time we got on/off the bus, he would always count if everybody was on the bus and will wait for you. I'll definitely go another package with the tour guide and this travel agency.
