Helicopter Tours from the Grand Canyon West Rim

This aerial tour over the Grand Canyon begins at the West Rim, where a crew awaits at the launch site for a meet and greet. On this 15-minute flight, soar high above the canyon, passing over West Rim attractions like Guano Point, Eagle Point and the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor.

There are two upgrades to consider. While hovering high above the canyon, swoop down between its walls and land on the floor. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Additionally, enjoy a 15-minute pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations. 

Please note: Total tour duration can range from 45-minutes to 1-hour. This time is inclusive of check-in, wait and tour time.

The Helicopter trip was Good with bit of a thrill. Plus point is that the management changed the date of our trip on our request without any additional charges. The negative points are, its too expensive, and very short trip. It only lasts for 5 minutes in the air, and without any communication with the pilot, he does not explain anything about the Grand Canyon.

Really friendly and helpful staff, fantastic flight down to the bottom of the canyon. Plenty of time at the bottom to explore (we didn't go for the boat ride) very relaxed. No shade down there so take your hat!

Fantastic experience, we were a group of three and had a helicopter to ourselves! One of the highlights of out 14 day California road trip, not to be missed if visiting Vegas. Drove ourselves to the start point at the West Rim. Similar trips on sale on the Vegas Strip were going for $399 each .
