I took my wife to Vegas for her 40th birthday as she had never been there before. One of the things that she absolutely wanted to do was visit the Grand Canyon so I started researching and decided to go with this company and I'm glad I did. It was top notch from start to finish.

We booked an airplane ride over the Grand Canyon/Lake Mead/Hoover Dam through Scenic Airlines and we have absolutely no complaints. We were booked up at our hotel right on time, had a brief transfer to a larger bus and arrived at the Boulder Airport where we were checked in and processed quickly. The flight itself was amazing - we were... More

Everything was great except the flight itself.. We picked Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam Scenic Tour. We flew over the Hoover Dam at the beginning. My husband and I were on the right hand side of the plane, Hoover Dam in view from left hand side. I couldn't see the dam, nor take pictures. Thinking we'll have another opportunity on... More

An excellent experience. Pickup from the hotel and back was prompt in comfortable vehicle. The flight was excellent. Whilst it would have been lovely to go by helicopter deeper into the canyon, this was a more relaxed experience with more time to enjoy the fantastic vista and take photographs. Real value for money all round.

Absolutely fantastic experience! The agency is top notch from start to finish including everyone from the bus driver to the pilots. The tour moves along in good time giving you plenty of time to enjoy each part. I would highly recommend taking this tour as a highlight to visiting Las Vegas. An absolute must see and do for everyone!

My wife , son and myself took an airplane tour to see the Grand Canyon and Lake Mead. They pick you up at your resort and we were in the air for around one hour. It was really breath taking. We got half price coupons on travelzoo. Would recommend the morning tour since we were picked up at our hotel... More

We had a great day seeing the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, Hoover Dam etc. The pilot, first officer and staff in the airport were great. Very friendly and polite. They have headphones on the plane explaining things as you see them out of the plane window. Great trip!

We were originally booked with TakeTours who stuffed up my booking and did not confirm our trip with the tour group so our seats had not been reserved however they had confirmed with me via chat. I only found this out the night before departure after contact with the tour group. I do not recommend them at all. So searching... More

We looked at the itinerary and thought we may not have enough time to do everything. Well we were picked up from our hotel in Las... More
