Team at Heli-USA Airways/Grand Canyon Ranch
My brother and I planned a surprise trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon for our mom's 60th Birthday and it couldn't have been better. We had an incredible time with you all. We flew to the Grand Canyon West Ranch on 3/18 and back on 3/19 with Tom. Our time flying with Tom and staying at the Ranch was definitely the highlight of our trip. My mom had never been on a helicopter before and she absolutely loved it. Tom provided an incredible narrative during our entire flight (both ways) and ensured that our flights were safe and sound. When it came time to leave the Ranch, there was some confusion surrounding the flight manifest, however Tom ensured that the appropriate flight manifest was followed. It meant a lot to us to see him make sure that everything was done according to plan. Tom's obvious love of flying and of the area surrounding Las Vegas came through loud and clear to us during our flights. It would have been very easy for a pilot on this type of trip to treat it more as a bus driving experience, with little interaction with his passengers, but this was certainly not Tom's approach and I want to make sure that you all know how great our trip with him was. The Grand Canyon West Ranch was fantastic. We loved our time there. Every aspect of our time on the Ranch was memorable. Our meals and our cabin were wonderful. The sunset horseback ride was awesome and everyone we met at the Ranch – both the team at the Ranch and the other families visiting the Ranch – were special folks who I am so glad to have met. Casey is an incredible entertainer and we're certain that we wouldn't have enjoyed our time at the Ranch nearly as much without him. Susan and her team at the Ranch are quite the group. They were available to meet our every need and it meant so much to us. Barbara was fantastic in answering all of my questions regarding our reservations – her prompt replies and attention to detail were extremely important to me and set me at ease about planning this special experience. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us to have such an amazing trip.

Las Vegas wedding party
A group of twelve of us spent two nights at the ranch as part of a friends wedding trip to Vegas and were bowled over - so peaceful, so different and so friendly we all wanted to stay longer - given what a varied party we were, aged from mid fifties to five year olds there was something for everyone. To hear coyotes howling at four in the morning was amazing and the repartee with our "waiters" at breakfast and dinner was better than a Vegas show - truly a not to be missed experience!
- O M C Dean-young, Brampton Bierlow UK
On a whim, I took my 7-year-old for an overnight stay. What a surprize! We were greeted with a gunfight, welcomed by a singing cowboy, and served the greatest meals in the ranch house. That night, my son O.D.'d on 12 marshmallows over the biggest campfire I'd ever seen. When my son asked Casey, the singing cowboy, if he could sing Michael Jackson's Beat It, he figured it out on the spot! The best weekend of the year!

Sleeping in a Tipi
Had a short, but fantastic stay at the ranch, would have loved to stay longer but we were on a tight schedule. From the welcome we received on arrival, to the breath-taking sunset horse ride, then a great meal with great company (and a few drinks), to the special entertainment from Casey and his side-kick - it was a wonderful experience. To cap it off we slept in a Tipi under a million stars and the watchful eye of Spirit Mountain. Thanks for the everything.
- Graham & Lynda, Brisbane, Australia
We visited the ranch as part of the helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon in May 2010. This has to be the most peaceful, calm and spiritual place I have ever been to. A complete change from the noise of the LV strip! Everybody at the ranch were friendly and full of knowledge about the ranch. The spring water was very welcome on a hot day and a slightly tummy-churning helicopter ride!! If I am honest, I know the Grand Canyon is a magnificient specimen of nature, but I loved the ranch more! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone heading out to Nevada. Thanks to everyone there.
- Susan, Windsor, England
Best part of the entire holiday
We had a fantastic time on the ranch and it was the best part of our holiday, everyone was so friendly and couldn't do enough for you. My Mum really loved singing round the camp fire with Casey. I would recommend this to anyone, stay there as long as you can manage....
- Thanks to everyone, Sharen and Carole
After 8 days in Vegas I wasn't looking forward to staying at the ranch, but our 2 night stay was the highlight of our holiday. Great atmosphere, great staff and great singing round the campfire by Casey and his rasta friend! Bought his cd's as gifts for our parents and they loved them. Can't wait to go back - booking soon!! A must stay.
- Leanne & Shaun, Pembrokeshire, Wales
A home away from home!!
We stayed with you guys for 2 nights as part of a 8 week honeymoon, and we can honestly say that staying with you was the highlight of the whole 3 weeks we spent in America. You all made us feel so welcome, especially Ras Nobu, Mike and the lady at the front desk (how awful - we have forgotten her name!) You looked after us so well and you never know, maybe we'll head your way in a few years once the kiddies are born to show them just how wonderful this place is!

An Amazing Place with Lovely People!
There are very few hotels I've stayed in that I have enjoyed enough to want to leave a review but my stay at the Grand Canyon Ranch was an experience I will not forget. It's a wonderful place in a fabulous location and all the people there could not have been more helpful or friendly. The little cabins are lovely, the food was great, the campfire under the stars with music provided by Suzy and Gilbert was a delightful way to spend a couple of evenings and Ted was a constant source of information and entertainment. All the ladies at the main office were always on hand if you needed anything and in general the service here was better than any 5 star hotel I've ever stayed in. If you want to spend a couple of nights somewhere that will leave a real smile on your face this is the place to go!
- Kathy, London, UK
Loved the peace and spirituality of it
My son Sam and I (June) visited your ranch a couple of times before and found it a wonderful, beautiful experience. The staff Casey, Avis and the receptionist exceptional as far as friendliness. We have purchased Casey's CD's. We are returning x3 log cabin and we look forward to it once again (I was the spiritual medium www.junefieldmedium.com).
- June Field, Dundee, Scotland
An Unbelievable Visit
The helicopter ride, views of the Grand Canyon, the Ranch, scenery - our first ever horse ride - everything was fantastic, we had to pinch ourselves to believe we were there. On gloomy days we only have to look at our photos to bring a smile to our faces. Thanks to everyone for making this trip a treasured memory. Special thanks to Casey - ironing is not sure a chore when singing along to Casey.
- Georgette & Jim Hill, Tipton, England
I spent an overnight at the ranch a few days ago and I can only say that it was fantastic! The staff were very kind and friendly and the pine cabin very comfortable and nice. To see the sunset was great! The evening singsong around the campfire was brilliant! Especially with the guy who sang Bob Marley, he is areally fun guy! Thank you for making this night, a special night! I hope to return someday!

Relaxation under the big sky
My son and I had a fantastic time at the ranch last week. We arrived to the welcoming of a low-key family-type atmosphere. We got set up in our really nice cabin and then joined everyone for family style dinner. A sunset horseback ride followed and then music and marshmallows around the campfire under the never-ending sky of stars. I had no idea that the Milky Way extended to the southern horizon!! We really liked Mike. This gentle man knew and played lots of songs, but was as laid back as the atmoshphere on the ranch. All of this great experience, in the shadow of a sacred Hualapai mountain peak. Great food and close to the Skywalk, too. When my whole family goes back, we are staying here again - no doubt about it!
- David Visser, Edwardsburg, Michigan USA
Camping in the canyon
Fantastic views from the helicopter the canyon was something else. the stay at the ranch and sleeping in the teepee brought a new meaning to camping for us. thank you casey for the marshmallows and all the songs round the campfire and all the new friends that we made that night and the unforgettable horse ride.
- All the best to everyone, Andy & Eliz, Kilmarnock Scotland
Thanks for the wonderful hours on your ranch. Esp. the horseriding at sunset, the campfire and the stars at night - we´ll come back :-)
- Greetings from Germany, Martina & George
Thank you Casey. We all enjoyed our visit and stay The highlight of our holiday.
- William, Ann & Christopher (He is enjoying your CD's), Plymouth UK
From the helicopter lift off to oue sda goodbyes this was a fun diversion from the bright lights of Vegas. The welcome, food, accommodation and entertainment were all excellent. The staff/cowboys were all willing to advise and answer any questions we asked. Would recommend the evening horse ride, shame in our case it was a bit over casted but we still enjoyed.
- Beter Ford, Halifax in the UK
Fantastic time, and a real highlight on our lads tour of the States. Hospitality, food, atmosphere, scenery and experience everything (and more) you'd expect. Special thanks to Gilbert and Casey - hope the bagpipes didn't scare the horses! Hope to be back soon - thanks again to all, it's a special thing you do!
- Colin, Chaljy, Skidney & Kev, Galashiels / Edinburgh, Scotland
Loved the Ranch
The ranch and the people were great to us when we got stuck there for 12 hours. Will definitely go and stay there again soon. Couldn't ask for a better time.
- Dekurly, Edgewater, Maryland USA
Wish I was there!
What an amazing time we had. We were on our honeymoon staying in Las Vegas for 10 days and we didn't think our holiday could get any better. Until we booked with Heli USA to fly over Grand Canyon arriving at the ranch. I recommend the horse riding but I may be biased as I have my own at home. Dinner was amazing the steak was to die for my husband had two and told me later he really wanted another but didnt want to seem greedy. Everyone was so friendly and we had a great time singing round the camp fire with Casey who amazed us all when he started making up songs about us off the top of his head. We were lucky as it was quiet and only had two other couples with us made it all the more special. The whole experince was truely one of the best days of our lives and we continue to talk about it nearly everyday. As well as our return journey we so hope to make soon. I would highly recommend it to anyone. THANK YOU for making our honeymoon so super special.
- Debbie & Damon Ball, Chesterfield, England
Best vacation ever!
Voted by my 16 year old daughter to be absolutely the best night on a vacation ever. Incredible food, great accommodations, and unparalleled hospitality. We not only made memories, we made friends who changed our lives. We will definitely return.
- Beverly, Washington, Pennsylvania, USA
One of the Highlights of our Holiday!!
Thanks to everyone at the ranch for making our overnight stay a wonderful experience. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived until we left the next morning. The evening meal was excellent and we were especially delighted when Casey sang a song to us to "celebrate our 40th birthdays even though it was 14 months ago!" (it took us a while to save up for the trip!). The evening singsong around the campfire was brilliant - Casey is a walking songbook!. The helicopter trip back over the Grand Canyon was awesome - the pilot definitely knew his stuff and pointed out lots of interesting things and bits of trivia. This was definitely one of the highlights of our holiday and if we come back to Vegas we hope to return to the ranch.
- Elaine and Paul Parkes, Stoke on Trent, England
Highlight of a wonderful holiday
We had four days in Las Vegas with our trip to and overnight stay at the ranch halfway through our holiday. As amazing as LV is the stay at the ranch was even better and gave us a nice break from the noise and bustle. Staff were welcoming (special thanks to Avis) and the host/entertainer Casey was wonderful and worked hard to make our stay special, but did it without making it look like work. Accommodation in the cabin was great. On some sites, reviews have complained about the facilities, get a grip folks the whole point of this tour is to offer a taste of the old west and provide authenticity. Actually the facilities are more than adequate anyway and so was the food. Cannot recommend this trip enough and well done to everyone involved. We will treasure the visit for the rest of our lives.
- Preston and Eilene Keeling, UK
Great place! Thanks, Casey!
We had a marvelous time, especially due to Cowboy Casey, the singing Cowboy. We brought our two 8-year old girls, one of whom is ALSO named Casey. She had her birthday while we were there; Cowboy Casey sang her Happy Birthday every time he saw here, plus sang on-the-spot songs for both girls. We all loved roasting marshmallows and singing around the campfire. The cabins were comfortable, the food good, the people terrific. (One warning - the ranch is great, but it is still a 13 mile car ride and additional money to see the Grand Canyon if you don't choose the helicopter ride.) Thanks again.
- Nancy, Alexandria, Virginia
What an Amazing Place
This was an amazing trip for my family and I. We talk about it all the time. The staff were all so very nice to us. My kids loved being able to run and play without an adult standing over them. My best advice would be to forget you are grown up, forget your dignity, join in everything and have a great time. I have never met a kinder group of people. The scenery was amazing. We even saw tree frogs, coyote, and yes you guessed it, a road runner! This truely was every childhood game of cowboys come to like. Now just where was the Lone Ranger?
- Jennifer Taylor, Oxford, UK
Hi everyone at Heli USA
My wife and I would like to thank all staff and pilots for the great job they do and the wonderful time and flight we had last week. This will be a lasting memory for us both, one that we can repeatedly watch on the DVD we purchased. We will certainly tell friends and family if they go to Vegas that a flight with Heli USA is a must, Once again we thank everyone and when we are in Vegas again we will look forward to visiting West ranch.
- Bye for now, Margaret and Michael Green, England
thought I would send a quick message to thank you for the fantastic time we had at GCWR, we stayed with you from 14th - 16th Oct and it was a great start to our trip to the U.S. The friendliness, hospitality, entertainment, food and accommodation was awesome. So a big thanks to Mike, Darlene, Virginia, Billy, the 'Rasta Ninja' and the 'little witch' for making our stay so special (apologies to anyone I forgot!). Please tell Mike that we followed his advice and took the road through Oak Creek Canyon on our way to Phoenix - it was a good tip! I hope business is booming for you and you get some rain soon!.
- Mark & Tracy Griffiths
Casey Adams music rocks!
I came with my family on june 29 2007. I recommend the ranch because of its horse rides (stay calm on the horses). I came to the ranch for my mom and dads 20 anniversary. I loved everything. I would absolutely stay there again.
- Louis, Oakton, United States
Had a fantastic time
After nearly 3 weeks driving round we stayed at the ranch for 2 nights and had a fantastic time. We needed time to relax and chill and the atmosphere there and the friendly and helpful staff certainly helped us do just that. Casey is amazing and entertains everyone with his great sense of humour and songs. (I now have his CDs in my car which bring back smashing memories each time I play them) We recommend the horse ride and the fun gun fight, and the food was simple and delicious. The cabins were comfortable and lovely and really made you feel as though you had gone back in time. Anyone thinking of going to Las Vegas or just driving in near the area should consider a break at the ranch, you certainly wont regret it. Thanks to everyone there for making it a memorable stay.
- Chris and Carole Hughes, Warrington, England
A completely different experience
If you want to experience the world with no pollution, then go here. Its just amazing. When we went we took part in the sunset horseride. Amazing, it was an out of this world experience.
- Littledib, Sherborne. U.K.
We had a great time at the ranch
I loved the atmosphere of the place and found it very relaxing. We thought Casey Adams was an excellent entertainer and made the camp fire singalong a very memorable experience. I would certainly recommend the ranch to anyone and it was one of the highlights of our holiday in the USA.
- Jean Still, Sanderstead, S Croydon, UK
OH MY GOD!!!!!
Oh my god what an experience, the helicopter ride, the views of the canyon, the stay at the ranch (bring warm clothing, stayed in November). Totally amazing. My husband Steve & I went as part of our Vegas Trip. Highlight of trip. !!!!!!! My husband wants to be a cowboy when he grows up!!!!!!. Cant fault anything. We had 'Thanksgiving' at the ranch, ate pumkin pie! to sweet but different. Sang with Mike around the campfire (THANKS MIKE) for being so good.

- Avril Moore, Scotland

Pegasus Grand Canyon Chariot of Fire
I just wanted to send you a big thank you for an awesome experience and a perfect flight by your pilot. The experience will stay with my for ever and will be one of the top helicopter flights I ever take. Once again many thanks for the perfect package from door to door...
- Thank you, Anthony Crook
Great People especially JD and Casey
We found this great place on our last visit to USA and all of the cowboys were so nice, It was a shame we could not stay however we are returning April 08 with 12 people and we shall try to persuade them to give it a go for the night. There is a very high spiritual presence at the ranch and I could feel a little spirit called Sally it was really amazing.
- Loved the place, Teresa, England
A trip of a lifetime
Dear Casey, I would like to say how special you made our stay at the ranch. It was a trip of a lifetime wish we had made our stay longer. On a funny note you told my partner Chris that if he did not marry me he would be crying for fifty years, well he had proposed by the time we left and i said yes. so thank you for your words of wisdom and it would be nice to come out to the ranch to get married so we will start saving. Once again thankyou very much to you and all the staff.
- Kane Weeks and Chris Dowell
A remarkable experience
My girlfriend and I just completed a trip to Vegas and the last part was your canyon tour. I must say it was a remarkable experience. Our pilot, Phil, was excellent and the helicopter ride was great. The ranch was very nice and we were extremely happy with the quality of the food we received for dinner. Usually in a "tourist" type environment the food is so-so as more emphasis is on quantity not quality. not in this case. we also bought the video and enjoy it very much. I imagine we will be back that way in a year of so and will use your company again. Please tell Casey Adams that he was a great singing cowboy and we enjoyed his show very much!! thanks again.
- Keith Rhodes and Judy Colson
Car Trouble at An Amazing Place
We did not actually stay at the ranch but we did have a very pleasant experience under very adverse conditions. On a recent trip to Las Vegas, our party of six decided to visit the Grand Canyon West Skywalk. The ranch is located about halfway on a 14 mile unpaved road leading to Grand Canyon. We drove past the ranch on the way to Grand Canyon and noticed that they advertised cold beverages. We made a mental note to stop on the return trip. On our return trip, we did stop about 6 PM. At that time, we discovered that we had a flat tire. While attempting to change the tire, we notice another tire was also going flat. Here we were, in the desert, no cell phone service, and one spare tire. Our first thought was to call AAA on a ranch phone but discovered they don't come out that far on an unpaved road. The next idea was to call the rental car company for a replacement car but we were three hours from the nearest rental car location. We would then have a three hour drive, putting us back in Vegas after well after midnight. After discussing all the options among ourselves and the ranch management, we determined the only solution was to leave the car and catch a ride back to Vegas with a tour group that would be leaving in about 3 hours. After a while, a young man that worked at the ranch, Justin, came up and asked if he could help. We discussed the situation and he offered assistance. He said he was experienced in tire repair and fixed both flats in short order. We continued the trip and returned to Vegas, very grateful for the hospitality offered by the ranch personnel. Justin, Darlene, and the assistant manager (regretfully I didn't get her name) were very helpful and very concerned about our welfare. If they take care of people in distress in that manner, I can only imagine how they take care of people that stay at the ranch. It was our general consensus that the ranch was very authentic, staffed with exemplary personnel, and expertly maintained. We plan to go back and find out.
- Wayne and Parbara Pasanen, Orange Park, FL, USA
What a blast!
They offered the best heli packages around, most liked everything about the ranch especially the meals (not too big, just right), be sure to bring warm cloths and boots if you're going hiking or trail riding. From the minute we arrived we were treated like long-lost relatives being welcomed home. Casey and the rest of the gang made us feel so comfortable. There were 4 of us so we stayed in one of the "loft" cabins ~ about 50 yards from the main horse corral, which was great. I'm a big Louis L'Amour fan so I sat on the porch of our cabin in the big 'ol rocking chair reading my book just before dinner while I watched the sun set and listened to the horses. I did the same the following morning when I was treated to a mini-stampede as some of the horses decided they'd rather drink the water in the creek in front of the cabin than go into the corral. What a hoot. Sitting around the campfire listening to Casey sing his songs while playing the guitar was a highlight to our stay. Any song you can imagine, he can play, note-for-note, and sing, verbatim. He went from singing some country and western song right into Led Zeppelin's Stairway to Heaven and American Pie. He was just awesome. He also seemed to have a specific song for each group that come into the ranch depending on what part of the world you were from. He sang "Sudbury Saturday Night" for us and a song about the tobacco fields in Tillsonburg. What a treat he was. A true host and gentleman. We only stayed one night at the ranch but felt as though we knew everyone there. We even received hugs upon our departure - what a place. We can't wait to go back!

A Must Visit
This was an amazing part of my honeymoon. I am saving up to visit again. So much fun for everyone. A must visit place in your lifetime. Thanks for the time I spent there. Also a big thanks to Casey.
- Alan Price, Sunderland UK
Casey made the visit very special
If you are looking for true America the west ranch is a must....great family experience for a wide variety of tastes....horse riding, music, photography....authentic food etc. Casey Adams really made our visit a one in a lifetime special occasion...my son really enjoyed playing the guitar with Casey he's a real gentleman. If you are in the area go ahead and treat yourself to a fabulous time. The whole package was great, food, music and location was simply the best. There was something here for everyone, horseriding, scenery, music, nice people. Great hospitality from the whole team.
- The Goodwin Family, Staffs
The Best "West" Experience
We took a three week drive to discover the West but didn't really find it till we came to The Grand Canyon Ranch. There's simply nowhere like it for that authentic western experience. Never mind the Tepee's and Cabins, Gunfights and Stories, Horse Rides to see the sunset or the Great Food. Not even the campfire where we sat around listening to old cowboy songs, with some of us remaining long into the night to watch the stars from beneath Spirit Mountain. All that was amazing, but it's the people that run the ranch that make the ranch the place it is. Warm, Welcoming and Western. You'd be a fool to miss it.
- Chris and Terri, Dublin, Ireland
Hope to visit again one day
Just to say thank you for a brilliant time last Tuesday/Wednesday. The cabin was gorgeous and the sunset ride was fantastic (it has taken me 6 years to get my partner on a horse and he loved it!!) Everybody obviously works really hard - please pass on a big thank you and compliments.
- J Brewer
Hello to Grand Canyon Ranch
Could you please forward to Casey Adams and all those at the Ranch, our thanks for a fantastic time spent with you all recently. My wife and I have recently returned to the UK after a short vacation in the US. Having spent a considerable amount of time in the US over the past thirty years - our time with you was a fantastically enjoyable experience.
- Thanks again, Roy and Jan Edwards from Gloucester, England
I have recently send a card to say many thanks to all of you for making our overnight stay on the 05/04/07 so very special. Maybe you did not receive this card or you are far to busy to reply. What is of course understandable. I had such a wonderful time on the Ranch and it was such a brilliant experience. The horseback riding could not have been more to my liking. Thank you for the delicious food and I really enjoyed the entertainment. All in all everything was so precious to me and I will never forget a moment of it. We bought a Casey Adams CD and listen to it all the time. Unfortunately he was not there to sign the CD. How can I find out more about Casey or contact him? Could you let me know, please.
- Many thanks, Nicola
Are we there yet?
Offering a 50th anniversary gift to my parents, and going along with them. I am counting days, I swear if they don't want to go -but I doubt it!- I'll lock them up in a closet and go alone.... My French Dad is a western buff with a whole room in his Lyon area house dedicated to John Wayne and a mix of cowboys and indians stuffs, my mom is just happy anywhere in the US! Downcounting days already from June 18th.... 17...16...!
- Emmanuelle Huguet, French citizen living in Houston TX
Traveled with Family-Friends, recommend for hose who want a bit of fun with friends! Most liked the food, the horse ride, the staff, the cabin... have a cowboy hat, boots and wrangler jeans to make more authentic for you!
- Josie Blacknell, Brighton, England
Absolute highlight of 2 week holiday in California
There were 8 of us traveling to various locations (4 children and 4 adults). We were welcomed with open arms to the ranch. Accommodation, food, company, horses and fab campfire singing were all first rate. The trip over the Grand Canyon in the helicopter was breathtaking. I have highly recommended this ranch to everyone I meet. The children (9,11, 13,13) have taken lasting memories with them as we have. Thank you so much.
- Love the Hepple & Page Family xxxx, Doncaster (Yorkshire)/Luton (Bedfordshire) UK
Loved the whole experience!
This was fantastic and I would defiantly recommend it to anyone... Watching the sunset over the Grand Canyon while drinking champagne on a horse with a cowboy singing 'back in the saddle again' is something I'll never forget.
- Daisy from Belfast, Ireland
A Memory I will always Cherish
My son and I took the heli there and back, staying overnight. It was, at least for me, the best part of our stay in Las Vegas. The horse riding was so different to anything in England. The entertainment was brilliant. Casey Adams, with his friends, entertained all evening and the next morning.
- John from Camden, England
The Experience of a Lifetime
If you want to experience something completely different, this is the place to go. The helicopter flight from Heli USA was superbly operated. The staff at the West Ranch are so friendly and the horse back riding and the sunsets are unforgettable. Casey Adams sang to us from 4pm until practically 7am the next morning. We took my friend here as a surprise 30th birthday gift and we couldn't have dreamed of anything more memorable.
- Robin Nix, UK
I want to be a Cowgirl and work a ranch!
Stayed here half-way through our honeymoon. The overnight experience itself was brilliant - BBQ dinner, songs and stories around a campfire in the evening and an early morning horse riding session which leads you to some fantastic views in Joshua Tree Forest.
- Rebecca Whip, Manchester, UK
Simply the Best
This was the best ever experience I've had. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and went out of their way to accommodate my husband and myself. The horseback sunset ride was great and my husband loved this, especially as it was his first time on a horse.
- Lesley Anderson, Aberdeen, Scotland UK
An experience of a Lifetime (mostly thanks to Casey)
We stayed at the ranch for two nights in one of the cabins which was very comfortable - comfy beds and plenty of hot water. We did consider one of the teepees but thought they would be too hot in the daytime and too cold at night but I think we were wrong. We were met by Casey who was welcoming and funny. We didn't know what to expect and comments on the web were mixed. If you are looking for 5* accommodation, this is not it, but food was good (fish or steak for dinner and basic breakfast), cabins were comfortable and staff helpful and friendly. My husband (who has never ridden a horse before) and my daughter went on the sunset horse ride and persuaded me to go on the second night. The horses walk but the gradients are quite steep in places. Jeans and boots are advisable but hard hats are provided. After this came dinner and then we were invited to sit around the camp fire, under a sea of stars, toasting marshmallows, whilst we were seranaded by Casey Adams (CD availble in shop!). He asked for our requests and was able to sing and play most of them. A truly lovely man. The next day, we took a helicopter ride over Grand Canyon which was spectacular. In the evening, we took another sunset horse ride. dinner, camp fire and bed. We saw coyotes, a Mexican wolf and bats on the ranch plus a variety of butterflies, birds and insects. There is a relaxed atmosphere, the staff and cowboys are patient and helpful and I can honestly say that we enjoyed the whole experience. We would certainly recommend staying at the ranch but if you want excitement and being on-the-go all the time, this is not for you. Our thanks go to Casey Adams who really made it for us. We was friendly and helpful and made us feel really welcome. We are certainly going back some time in the future. Thank you to everyone at Grand Canyon Ranch and we hope to see you all again soon.
