Picked up from hotel by coach and transferred to Central pick up point could upgrade to mini bus ( I would say no went at same time as bus) driver gave plenty info Hoover dam lake mead stop off canyon stop was about 4 hours helicopter trip and pontoon ride amazing!!! Did optional sky walk I'm afraid of heights and still managed it my advice leave out cowboy stop off (stop one) until last as if you are going to see the canyon this is the most commercial part of the tour lunch supplied at point 3 views are amazing well worth the price amazing memories

This trip has been an all time life bucket list trip. It did not fail to impress. Long coach ride from Vegas (3 hours) but flying over the rim and down to the canyon base and actually looking UP on the canyon - this is the best ever experience. Amazing and worth every penny.

Every aspect of the tour was expertly handled. The helicopter tour, the river tour and the Skywalk were all amazing. Thomas , our bus driver, was great and very funny. I highly recommend this specific tour, and Cool Destinations and all the employees we dealt with.

Every part of this day trip was wonderful! Winds gusts were 50mph but the pilot was great. Thanks to our tour guide, Felix.

Whether you already live somewhere along the Rocky Mountains, or whether you’re from Europe, this is the best use of a day if one happens to be in Las Vegas. Hotel pickup went smoothly. Transfer to travel buses was organized nicely. The drivers offered bits of history and tips to passengers. The Hoover Dam stop was just long enough. Once we arrived at the Hualapai territory, our driver quickly got us oriented to the system of shuttle buses. We had already been given maps, as well as reviewed the time table and dining options. Those of us who opted for the helicopter ride down to the base of the canyon, and a boat ride in the river did that activity first. It was amazing, and exceeded all expectations. We had ample time to make the other three stops, step out on to the SkyWalk, hike out on the beautiful terrain at Guano point, and ride horses at the Hualapai village. I was out of time at that point, but the staff was helpful and let me pack up my barbecue chicken with all the fixins, and take it back to the bus. Our tour group included Americans from all over, as well as many Europeans, south and Central Americans, and it’s safe to say everyone really enjoyed themselves immensely. Highest recommendation for this day trip.

This tour allows you to drive through the Nevada desert, helicopter down into the canyon, boat along the Colorado river and then shuttle around to the 3 different viewpoints of the West rim for photos. What an amazing experience. Make sure you have the whole day free if choosing this tour as we were picked up at 6:15am and got back to our hotel at 7pm.

Awesome tour! Getting to tour the Grand Canyon by land, air, and sea was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! Loved the tour!

On the way out we had a brief photo stop at the Hoover Dam. We had just enough time to walk up the steep incline to the viewing point, take photographs and get down again. On the way to the canyon the driver related a lot of the history about the dam, the area and Las Vegas its self, very interesting. When we arrived at the canyon we had to get checked in for the helicopter tour and was offered the option to do the Sky Walk for 25 even though we had not previously booked it. The ride along the canyon and slowly dropping to the bottom was very smooth. Our Hualapai guide took us up river then cut the engine and let us drift back down. Clear blue sky, warm sun, majestic cliffs and only the odd gurgle of the water to break the silence. Absolutely wonderful. The flight back along the canyon and back to the top was just as smooth as the decent. The Sky Walk was a bit of a disappointment because they let people walk on it with no shoe covers now and the glass has become scratched. This takes away a bit of the magic because your eyes focus on the scratches before taking in the beauty of the valley below. You have to choose what bits you want to do after the helicopter and boat ride, Hualapai Ranch, Eagle Point and Guano Point because there is not enough time to do them all justice. We can not recommend this tour highly enough.
