Excellent experience, from the tour guides, lunch and deliver back to out hotel. Wonderful organization and people. The guides were informative and helpful. Beautiful tour of the Grand Canyon from air, land and water!
Excellent time
, Jun 2022
It was a great experience. Highly recommend this excursion. Guides were great and knowledgeable, the flight, rafting and antelope canyon tours were more than expected. Great Job to all
Great except for the 3 hour bus ride that wraps the day they did not tell you about.
, Jun 2022
So the first part of this trip is amazing and very well organized. The flight, the rafting trip, the tour of the Antelope canyon. The challenge we had was that they hike was about 10 minutes not 30 minutes. You walk out of the Canyon and over to a staircase back to the transportation that brought you to the canyon. Then at the end of the day - we assumed we would fly back, but no it was a 3 hour bus ride. Way too long after a long day and not good with kids.
Just amazing
, Jun 2022
Everything was on time, everyone was very respectful and the views are amazingly beautiful. I did this for my birthday and it was the best decision I made. It's worth the price don't let that fool you...treat yourself.
Long day - some nice views
, Jun 2022
The flight over the canyon was nice and antelope canyon was awesome - the raft ride was a little boring and the trip over all was a very long day. It would have been nice if they were more accurate telling you a backpack was not allowed when it was
Overall a great experience
, May 2022
Altogether it was a great experience. The only constructive criticism I might have would be to make the time in the boat a little shorter by maybe not stopping quite as much. It got a little monotonous. But overall very good

BEWARE - Viator Customer Service is HORRIBLE
Misti W
, Jul 2019
I’m sure this tour is wonderful but we wouldn’t know. The tour operator called us 15 minutes prior to us being at the airport to cancel the entire tour. (Due to mechanical issue with the plane) This was July 5th, holiday weekend. After multiple calls, we were offered a complimentary 45 helicopter ride. Only to find out ,afterwards, the tour company and Viator were in dispute about the “complementary” part, so we were charged almost $1,000 for a 45 helicopter ride...not the 12.5 hour tour. Multiple calls to both Grand Canyon airport and Viator, neither company honored their commitment. HORRIBLE customer service from Viator. Unacceptable and we will no longer be doing business with this Viator. (We’ve gone through Viator in multiple countries...until this disappointing experience) please find another company to book your adventure.

Major awesomeness
, Jul 2019
This is a fantastic trip. Our pilot, Jack, was funny and very informative during our flight over the canyon. The Antelope Canyon was worth the price of the whole trip. Our guide, Rico, went above and beyond at helping us get the best shots and giving us background and incidental information about the canyon. We were delivered to Justin for our trip down the Colorado. He was really nice and not rushed at all. It was really hot and he would pull into shaded areas whenever he found them. Our trip started early so we managed to avoid the crowds. Antelope Canyon is very busy between 9 and 3. As we were coming out it was getting crowded. It was nice not having to deal with driving and finding parking. We considered it well worth the money. The only real negative was the boat ride was a bit long. It could be run a bit quicker to shorten the time in the summer.
Family Trip Cancelled Day Before Excursion
, Jun 2019
This excursion was cancelled 13 hours before our family of 5 was to take this trip to kick off our vacation at the Grand Canyon. Viator had our trip cost money of over $2,000 since April and we had actually received a confirmation ticket on Thursday before our trip was to take place on Monday. No really good explanation for the trip cancellation was given except the plane needed maintenance. Why did Viator/Grand Canyon Airlines not know this on Thursday before the trip confirmation ticket was sent to us. Viator booked this excursion through Grand Canyon Airlines and the Airlines called us to cancel. They did not even offer to try and accommodate us with other excursions that would fit into the time we were at the Grand Canyon. So we as a family had to jump through hoops to try and book excursions to make up for this cancellation. Viator still had my money a week after the trip had been cancelled. Through several phone calls and firm language, we finally got an e-mail verifying that the refund had been initiated. There was no communication on this cancellation between Grand Canyon Airlines and Viator so what kind of partnership and customer service and follow up is that -- bad! Needless to say -- we will not be booking with Viator or Grand Canyons Airlines in the future.

We had a great time. Keep in mind that you will have to leave sharp objects at home for security checks before the boat ride. Everyone was nice and the trip was well organized.
Family Vacation
, May 2019
Great experience except for the last 3 1/2 hours - the bus ride from Lee's Ferry back to South Rim Airport. For some reason the bus driver, Gigi, felt it more important to take up the front seats with her hand bag and clipboard. I politely asked is she could move her things to the seat immediately behind her but she refused. My wife and I desired the front seats so we could have a better view for our trip back to the airport but Gigi refused to move her things. It's unfortunate that she felt her clipboard was more important than her customers. Where we had a great time with the balance of the trip, this act alone left us with a feeling of disappointment. Since we host family and friends every year, I estimate approx. $6,000 in lost revenue annually for this company since we will look elsewhere in the future. One rotten apple spoiled the bunch.

Great way to do a lot in a short space of time
, Apr 2019
We booked this tour as we had limited time in the Grand Canyon and it offered the chance to do a variety of activities. The plane ride is a great way to get a sense of scale of the Grand Canyon, though it was slightly windy the day we went so a bit bumpy. We found Antelope Canyon fascinating and our guide managed to help us get great pictures. I think we also got there at the right time as it wasn't too busy as we went through but when we were leaving it was getting very busy. After Antelope Canyon we were driven to the raft center to get our safety briefing and lunch. This was the only lull in the day as we were kept waiting for almost an hour. It was worth it though as the river rafting was worth it. Very relaxing and our tour guide River Dan was great with lots of interesting stories and facts. A long day but it was a great way to make the most of our time at the Grand Canyon.

We had the most amazing day! Started with a fantastic flight over the Grand Canyon and it was totally amazing seeing it from above : The plane was very small with 9 passengers so we all had a window seat to see the different areas of the canyon. We then went in large jeeps to the Antelope Caverns which are very narrow and small but the details of the rocks when the suns shines in is amazing. Our guide was fantastic and got us some amazing pics of the rocks. We then next went on a large raft for nearly 2hrs going down the amazing Colorado river! Gave you a different perspective of the canyon and the sheer height of the cliffs. Again we had a fantastic guide. There was a few stops along the way and where you could get off and go for a wander. We then headed to the bus waiting to pick us up at stopped a trading stop where you could purchase many items before the bus dropped people back off. A long day as was 12hrs but definitely worth it to see the amazing grand canyon :

Amazing full day trip! Our family...
, Oct 2017
Amazing full day trip! Our family of four had a rough start early morning3am since we needed to be at the Grand Canyon Airport at 5:30-6am and we were staying in Sedona, two and a half hours away. But it proved to be well worth it. After check in, they give everyone their breakfast box which really contained well thought out awesome food. Then off we go onto the plane! The Grand Canyon Navajo east end of canyon at daybreak was a wonderous thing to see. The pilot flew right over Horseshoe bend. Great photo ops! The left side of the plane is the place to sit if you can for the best photos. People sitting on the right side of the plane didn't even get to see Horseshoe bend. We flew over Glen Canyon dam as well -in the air about an hour-and landed at Page Arizona airport. From there a Navajo guide picked us up and transported our group to the entrance of Antelope Canyon. Antelope canyon is one thing you need to experience in your life. Beautiful! The walls, the light make for beautiful strange pictures. Use your iphone or android on chrome setting . Our guide showed us how to use the phone to take pictures worthy of National Geographic. My expensive camera didn't do half as well. The excursion gets you to Antelope canyon right at the start of the day which is awesome-way less people to get in the way. By the time our group left, a hundred people were lining up to go thru. After Antelope Canyon we were transported back to the rafting co. We were given our box lunches as we got on the bus and were taken through a 2 mile tunnel to the raft launch site near the base of Glen Canyon dam. After we loaded up, and met our guides, we proceeded s-l-o-w-l-y down the Colorado river. Lots of awesome rock formations and you also get to raft through Horseshoe bend since you flew over it first thing in the morning There are a couple of stops where you can swim in the 42 degree water if you wish there are also outhouses available The raft trip, my family felt, was about two hours too long. After the beautiful raft trip, we are all loaded onto buses to make the 3 1/2 hour journey back to the Grand Canyon airport. Its a beautiful drive and we did stop at Cameron Trading Co where they gave us only 30 min I was like a madwoman trying to grab things - -I love to shop. Back on board the bus, the driver put a great informative film on about river rafting the Colorado and we eventually got back to our car about 6pm. All in all, even though it was a long day, it was awesome and money well spent.
