Best of the West Rim: Grand Canyon Air Tour with Optional Helicopter, Boat Ride and Skywalk Admission

Grand Canyon by Airplane, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk Ticket

This sightseeing tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then enjoy the 30-minute trek east before arriving at the Boulder City Municipal Airport to begin the 1-hour flight.

Start with a pilot meet and greet, then climb aboard and buckle up in the fixed-wing Vistaliner plane, featuring panoramic windows for the ultimate sightseeing adventure.

Begin by flying over the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States, and its place of origin, the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering on the border between Nevada and Arizona. Fly high above the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, 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.

Upon landing, take the West Rim Shuttle to Guano Point. Enjoy a light meal along the West Rim while admiring the panoramic views of the Grand Canyon. Additionally, visit Eagle Point at leisure for more incredible scenery.

As an added option, take a helicopter ride to the canyon floor and float along the Colorado River. Climb aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter and swoop down before landing on the canyon 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. Then enjoy a 15-minute pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations. 

As an additional bonus, experience the breathtaking view from the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon.

The tour ends with a return flight to Boulder City and a hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Great experience. Did not add the helicopter or boat ride, but did do the skywalk. It was well worth it. There was plenty of time to walk around at various points at the Grand Canyon before heading back to Vegas. The pilots were very friendly and I felt very safe.

This was a fantastic experience. Had plenty of time at each part of the trip. The plane ride to the canyon gave great views of the Hoover dam and lake mead. The helicopter trip and boat ride along the Colorado river were the highlights. Every part of the trip went smoothly. The lunch served over looking the canyon was good. The skywalk was good just one note you cannot take your own cameras onto the skywalk. An amazing trip will always remember it. Good value
