WOW. I booked the Western Journey tour and words can't describe this day. After taking off from Henderson airport we flew over Lake Meads and Hoover Damn all the way to the West Rim - and what a flight it was! Half an hour of amazing scenery and helpful commentary by our pilot Chris.
Absolutely breathtaking and it really helped that the Maverick helicopters were specifically designed for sightseeing with a lot of windows everywhere from the floor to the roof. I highly recommend spending just a bit more and go for these helicopters. You're only going to fly over the Grand Canyon once in your life.
At the Grand Canyon, I had time to go see the Skywalk, have lunch at the ranch (food wasn't anything special) and just enjoy the scenery. The Skywalk was less spectacular than I expected but being able to walk on the very edge of the canyon at Guano and Eagle Point totally made up for it.
All in all, the best thing to do in Vegas, period.
