Bill was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and I loved that our tour was 12 people. The day was packed but very well paced.... the tour exceeded my expectations! I was curious what this was going to be (although, I am a seasoned Viator user) as I was celebrating my dad's 65th birthday with a trip. He had never done anything like this and was very impressed with how smooth, professional, and spectacular everything was. Honestly, it was run so well. Again, Bill was fabulous!

The tour was great! We had an early start going to Hoover Dam first. That was amazing. And then on the way to the Grand Canyon, a few stops at souvenir shops and where the Joshua Trees grow. And then the beautiful, phenomenal, unbelievable Grand Canyon. The helicopter tour was the best! They were only short. Eg 7 minutes to get down to the bottom and then another 7 minutes back. I thought I wasn’t going to be scared but I wasn’t!

On the day we were meant to go on our trip the weather was against us, Julian our guide still gave us the breakfast so we had not got up in vain!! Adventure Photo Tours offered us the opportunity to go on the following day or have a full refund, we opted to try for the following day! Good choice!! Our guide Chris Jones collected us on time from our hotel, and we proceeded on our tour! The weather was great and first stop Hoover dam! we had ample opportunity to get some good photos of the area! Next Joshua tree farm, again ample time to get in a look around! We then arrived for the highlight, the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyons West rim!! After checking in the pilot arrived and introduced himself, following a safety briefing we boarded the helicopter! The pilot,Tim a very experienced and professional man made you feel very safe! After landing at the base of the canyon we had loads of time to get in several photos! The flight out of the canyon was as exciting as going in!! We then had views from both the Eagle and Guano points! Lunch was provided at a ranch, this is the home of the Native American Hualapai people!! The lunch provided was excellent, choice of chicken or ribs. Either is very filling!! The journey home was relaxing after an eventful day, we were provided throughout the trip with plenty to drink and biscuit snacks! Chris was a very intentive and knowledgeable guide and wherever we went he was able to explain what we were seeing, often in a humorous way! Overall a very worthwhile day out!!!
