The Grand Voyager tour provides one of the most complete Grand Canyon experiences available. This tour combines the thrill and adventure of a helicopter, airplane, and boat excursion and packs it all in to 7 hours. Guests are treated to a scenic flight from Las Vegas to our remote station at Grand Canyon West. Upon arrival a helicopter will take guests down to the very bottom of the Grand Canyon where a pontoon boat waits to carry them on a cruise up the Colorado River. A light meal is provided at Guano Point at the top of the rim which is one of the few locations in the entire canyon that affords guests a near 360 degree canyon panorama.

The whole experience was fantastic! It was my 50th birthday and certainly a day to remember Posted by Mrs C Appleby from United Kingdom
"It was 100% worth it, and a great way to spend a day while visiting Vegas!"
Our tour was simply amazing. From start to finish, every last detail was arranged for us as we explored the breathtaking Grand Canyon. From the helicopter ride through the canyon to the pontoon boat cruise up the Colorado River, in one day we saw more than most people see in a week. It was 100% worth it, and a great way to spend a day while visiting Vegas! Posted by Dave from New Jersey
"10/10 papillon you left us with a lifetime of wonderful memories THANK YOU"
We had the trip of the lifetime to the grand canyon. Our Pilot Greg was friendly and offered wonderful commentry throughout the flight. The boat ride on the colorado river was breathtaking and we could have stayed in the sun surrounded by the canyon views all day infact my only complaint would be the boat ride was over all too soon. The skywalk is a once in a life time oppertunity so if you get the chance to do it you should! we were also lucky enough to get to experiance the ranch which was sweet and old worldy! 10/10 papillon you left us with a lifetime of wonderful memories THANK YOU Posted by Elaine Harris from Melbourne Australia

"Well done for making this experience for both of us an utterly enjoyable one."
I took this trip with my 11yrs old son and i can only highly recommend it. We utterly enjoyed our coach driver (from New York, sorry cant remember name)so funny and entertaining. It was high season and very busy, but still manage to do everything that was planned. I have since highly spoken about it to all my friends and collegues, i am planning another trip to Vegas, this time south rim,and i will use Papillons again and again.Well done for making this experience for both of us an utterly enjoyable one.

"An all round great day."
very well organised and friendly and helpful staff all the way. An all round great day. Posted by Glenn Bassett from Adeliade South Australia
"All of this was great and even the lunch was tasty."
We were really pleased with the whole experience. There are so many tour companies offering tours that we didnt know which company to use, but I went direct to the Papilon Website and picked one from there. We had a very helpful "online" chat with one of your representatives which was useful. We then booked up on line for a family of 4. We chose this tour because it seemed to offer everything - an aircraft flight over Lake Mead and Hoover dam, a helicopter into the Canyon, a short boat trip and a bus ride to a viewing point and lunch at the West Rim. All of this was great and even the lunch was tasty. We were very pleased and would certainly recommend your company as the organisation went like clockwork. Many thanks.

Excellent! Day of a lifetime! Worth every penny! Posted by Denise Jamieson from Scotland
"The entire experience was top notch!"
The entire experience was top notch! I was very impressed...and I plan events and special activities for VIP cosmetic surgeons all the time. I would highly recommend this. I traveled with myself and my two children ages 9 and 7. Everything was punctual, professional, well-organized, clean. We loved the interaction with the Native Americans on the reservation. My kids loved the BBQ lunch. Of course, the scenery was breath-taking and fun to explore at the various stops. Posted by Victoria Ceh from IL, USA
"What a fantastic experience!"
What a fantastic experience! We only had a short time in the area and to fit all this trip provided was magic.With a good group it made our day. Posted by Stewart & Mary Bartlett. Northwhich, Cheshire, England
"Worth every penny!!!!"
Just an amazing experience!! Spend the extra money and enjoy the canyon every way possible. I know it isn't cheap, but the difference is well worth it. Particularly for an experience that you aren't likely to do twice. The service was great. These guys have this tour down and promptly get you to each and every activity. Going to the bottom of the canyon in a helicopter is simply an awe-inspiring experience. It is a busy day and the 7 hour estimate hotel to hotel is accurate. Now for the review. We were picked up at our hotel promptly on time. We taken to the airport near Hoover Dam and all of us were sorted into our groups for our tours. We were bussed to the airplane and were seated and quckly in the air to enjoy seeing Hoover Dam and then off to the Grand Canyon. The airplane portion of the Grand Canyon was relatively brief, but with the helicopter portion to come, not at all an issue. Once on the ground at Grand Canyon West, we had a short wait to get organized and then bussed to the helipads for the flight to bottom of the canyon. The boat was waiting for our arrival for a brief boat ride on the Colorado. Very nice views and great pictures. Then back to the top and promptly bussed over to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which is where lunch is provided. We were early to the Skywalk and had absolutley no waiting to enjoy this stop. The views up, down and all around from here are wonderful. We had all the time we wanted and then enjoyed lunch and off to Guano Point for more spectacular views of the Grand Canyon. Back to the air strip and flown back to Vegas and bussed back to the hotel. Posted by richard,,Missouri, USA
"... had the best time ..."
"What a great way to spend by birthday!! I had the best time on this tour and will recommend it to all my friends & family. Everyone was so nice & great customer service. It exceeded my expectations indeed!!" Posted by Travi, FL, USA
This was totalling an awesome experience. My husband and I could not wait to see the Grand Canyon. Everything was so well organized and everything ran so smoothly. From our pick up at the hotel to getting on the small plane, the helicopter and the pantoon boat. The meal we had at Guano Point was very, very good. All the pilots, operators etc. were wonderful and friendly. Seeing the grand canyon was something we will never forget and Papillon made it so easy and pleasant of an experience. We would and have recommeded your company. We will go again and when we do we will go with Papillon Tours, it was so worth it. thanks for the experience!! Posted by Maria & Livio,Ontario,Canada
