We went on the plane tour to Grand Canyon West, the helicopter ride down to the floor and the pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River. We then went on the shuttle bus to the lookout points. The whole trip was brilliant and extremely well organised. We saw some amazing views,

What a fantastic experience! My husband and I did this trip in October 2019 when the exchange rate (UK sterling)was at an all time low so it did seem a bit pricey but oh my goodness was it worth the extra dollars. Compared to the 4 hour plus coach trip just to even get there it

I had been looking forward to visiting the Grand Canyon, which had been on my to-do list for a few years. I thought the Grand Celebration Tour would be ideal. How wrong I was. We went on 16 September 2019 and the organisation was a shambles. Waiting around for helicopter travel

We sincerely apologize that the overall tour experience didn't meet your expectations. It sounds like you booked a Grand Voyager or an Indian Country tour, as the Grand Celebration lands at the bottom of the canyon with a picnic lunch. We would like to hear more about went went amiss with the helicopter portion of your tour and to ensure that you received compensation for any aspects of the tour that were missed. Please email us at tourfeedback@flygcsa.com with your reservation number or last name used to book this tour so we may look into your issue. Respectfully, GCSA Management

We did the Grand Voyager tour and loved every minute. We started with a bus ride from Las Vegas to Boulder City, where we got into a small plane to fly to the Grand Canyon. There were large windows so wonderful views. At the Grand Canyon West Airport, we boarded a helicopter
