"Couldn't have been any better. Always had good experiences with Cloud 9 and the tour providers. No exceptions. Keep up the good work and feel free to use me as a referrence anytime. Thank you."
"Helicopter tour - Had mechanical issues with heli- took off an hour after scheduled. Ken, the pilot, was very accommodating about this. Staff at customer service counter at Boulder City airport uncoordinated in terms of how this impacted our river tour following the helicopter ride."
