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

With lots of research we chose this particular tour. Poss one of the most expensive but we thought we would only have the opertuinty once. I do not think we could have done better. 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

My wife and I have been to Vegas many times and we have been on Lake Mead a ton of times, including numerous houseboat trips. We had never seen these sights from the air. We found a deal on Vegas.com for $99 per person and decided to do it. It was well worth the money and we had a blast.... More

This was a nice way to see some of the Grand Canyon. I did the highlights air tour, about 4 hours, 70 minutes from takeoff to landing. The aircraft I flew on was a 1976 DEHAVILLAND DHC-6-300, with over sized windows for sightseeing. You get some good shots, but a Helicopter would be better for photo ops, as you may... More

This was a really fun thing to do with the family. The music on the plane headphones did get annoying.

So we did the hour air tour on a small aircraft. Good points first: Scenic Airlines offers a pick up and drop off service included in the price from your hotel if you're staying in Vegas. On arrival we paid no extra fees, which is always nice! The plane was in great condition and the pilot was really friendly. The... More

Thank you for taking time to post a balanced review, and we truly appreciate your feedback. The reason we opt to use recorded narration is because our passengers speak a variety of languages, whereas most of our pilots speak English or Spanish. By offering prerecorded narration in 16 different languages, our passengers can learn about the Grand Canyon and the... More

We did the Highlights Air Tour taking us over Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, the Colorado River and Grand Canyon West Rim. This was the highlight of our trip! We had a short 3 night stay in Las Vegas and didn't want to eat up a whole day bussing to the Grand Canyon. This is the PERFECT trip for the short... More

Most of you have probably read about how beautiful the Grand Canyon is, but seeing is believing. If it is on your bucket list, seize the chance to see it for real. You won't regret it. This is an excellent way to experience the canyon and the Hoover Dam and worth every penny of it. We booked in advance to... More
