What to Expect
Your morning starts with early pickup from your Las Vegas hotel by air-conditioned coach and a brief photo stop at Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. On arrival at Grand Canyon National Park, the bus drops you at the canyon’s West Rim. Board a helicopter and descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor, and then cruise along the mighty Colorado River on a pontoon boat and see the rock layers up-close. Next take a helicopter ride back up to the canyon’s West Rim and board a shuttle bus to Guano Point for a bird’s-eye view of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. Then you have just enough time to stop at Eagle Point, visit Hualapai Village, and enjoy a cowboy cookout lunch at Hualapai Ranch. After lunch, hop back on the bus and end your tour with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas. This tour offers an optional upgrade to add on the glass-bottom Grand Canyon Skywalk.

Terrible experience with Gray Line. Would not recommend this company- as their policies and unprofessionalism is alarming. Never even got to go on the tour- lol.

Dear lynnlF7151TP, As you are well aware, this is just the tip of the story. It is very interesting how you fail to mention that your party wanted to cancel with a full refund on the day of the tour due to a stomach illness. When we informed you that what we could accommodate your party by simply rescheduling your party when everyone felt better- we were told that your party had other activities that they would prefer doing. Under those circumstances a refund was not warranted. Of course, your party followed with nasty posts on social media and threats of lawsuits, and then the offered to rescind if we would agree to your terms. Turns out, we don't like blackmail. Sincerely, GL Vegas Customer Service.

Honestly, this was the highlight of our stay in Vegas! The helicopter boat tour and Grand Canyon itself were exceptional. Why I’m giving this a 3 star review is because we had a negative experience with the driver, Sam. While we understood the Las Vegas marathon was going on and

Dear Katherine H, Thanks for being a Gray Line customer. We are happy that you enjoyed your day at the Grand Canyon, as it is truly a spectacular place to visit, with scenic views that you can not find anywhere else. We are also sorry that our driver was unable to get you close to your hotel due to the massive traffic issues caused by the closure of Las Vegas Blvd. (The Strip) for the running of the annual marathon. On behalf of everyone at Gray Line I want to wish you all the best in your future travel experiences. Sincerely, Zachary
