Grand Canyon tour - thoughts on this one please???

Wanting to do a GC day trip while we're in vegas 6-11 Nov.

Unfortunately we don't have time to overnight so looking for a fly/drive/helicopter trip or similiar.

This one seems really good and the cost booking on the internet is $389pp including all fees etc It's with Papillon Helicopters.

Flight from Boulder Terminal to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and return to Boulder City

20 - 30 min Helicopter flight over the North and East Rim

Guided ground tour

1 rim view stop in the Grand Canyon National Park

1 meal included

Complimentary hotel pick-up and drop-off

How far is Boulder City from Vegas? ANy other thoughts - negative or positive appreciated! Thanks.

OK...Boulder city is only 30 min. from Vegas. But the cost is quite high.

Why not try this (we are booking this tour w/ our 3 teens this Jan.).

lasvegasgrandcanyontour.com/BUS-grand-canyon…

It has solid reviews & the price is right--tho you must commit a full day.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, afraid I'm not too fond of long bus trips so the air option seemed great.

It's still a 9 hour day and hopefully we'll see a reasonable amount of scenery in that time :-)

Just wondered if anyone else from this forum has gone on this tour?
