We had booked a trip for just visiting the canyon but decided on the way to change this and include the helicopter ride and boat ride on the Colorado river. Best decision ever! Being in the helicopter was my favourite part and seeing the canyon from all angles is priceless. The Hualapai are lovely people as well

Many say it is not worth the trip. But it is. I have been twice to the south rim, and this was my first visit to the west rim and I really enjoyed it. It is not such a short drive from Las Vegas (about 3 hours) but it is not as long either. Please know that the road is... More

Was a great drive although desolate but that was the great part. Good roads so not a problem now since they are all paved. Loved the desert mountains and Joshua Trees. The park was great. Helo tour was WELL worth the money with the little boat ride at the bottom of the canyon. Very nice people also. Loved this trip!

I've been to the Grand Canyon National Park, and we didn't have time to head all the way to the North or South Rim, but I wasn't letting my friends who had never seen the GC head out of Las Vegas without seeing this incredible view! A little over 2 hours from Las Vegas to the rim, the last bit... More

Far and away the best part of my trip to vegas. Breathtakingly beautiful and completely indescribable. The only way to appreciate the magnificence is to see it for yourself.

Stop one : Hualapai Ranch: It looked like it is still under construction.We saw a magic show.It was entertaining. We did not participated much here because we were anxious to see the canyon.... More

The West Rim is much better than I expected. The helicopter ride down to the bottom of the Colorado River with a 15-minute boat trip is marvelous. Yes, it is not cheap ($200), but worth it, especially for first time helicopter riders. I just don't know why some people rate it so low. I hope the pictures attached can tell... More

We decided to head to the GC since we were done early at hoover dam. We were headed to the south rim but the gentleman told us that west rim was closer so we drove there. BIG mistake. We arrived at the west rim. We saw signs about the sky walk which seemed cool. You have to go through the... More

The view is beautiful, but there is a 44 dollar fee just to get to the sites, and then a 27 dollar fee to go on the skywalk. Even worse, you are not allowed to take pictures from the skywalk, you have to pay for the photos a photographer takes. The lowest price for photos is 15 dollars for one... More

We were staying in Vegas and went to visit the grand canyon.. The skywalk is amazing!! There are helicopter tours as well but they were all sold out.. We didn't know that we have had to book them in advance.. It definitely is worth seeing the canyon from the within from the helicopter...
