What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour and Colorado River Boat Ride

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour and Colorado River Boat Ride

Your helicopter flight will take you soaring above the mighty Hoover Dam and extinct volcanoes. You'll then descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) below the rim to land along side the Colorado River, where you'll sip on champagne and enjoy a light picnic lunch.

Then continue your adventure with a 15-minute pontoon boat ride on the mighty Colorado River for a close-up view of these world-famous geological formations. Your return helicopter flight along the Grand Canyon and the north shore of Lake Mead is completed with an exhilarating flight over the Las Vegas Strip. On landing, your limousine is waiting to whisk you back to your hotel.

There is a maximum capacity of 6 people per helicopter plus your pilot.

Please note: the listed price does not include a US $10 per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in.

IMPORTANT: The boat portion of the tour may be cancelled due to high water levels in the Colorado River. In the case of a cancellation, extra time at the base of the canyon will be offered or a partial refund will be issued

It was everything we imagined at would be. Breathtaking scenery, wonderful helicopter flight, and fun river cruise. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Excellent, well organised from hotel pick-up, activity and return to the hotel.
We did have a hip-cup at the Colorado river, to me had no consequences, allowed me more time to view the wonderful scenery and talk to other people from around the world.
Brilliant, would do again if we return to Las Vegas

Unfortunately, our boat ride was canceled due to mechanical issues which really stunk. However, the experience of the helicopter ride alone is not to be missed. Our pilot was amazing: friendly, knowledgable, and a lot of fun. He noticed my husband's Star Wars shirt, so he played a song from Star Wars as we landed. Amazing staff -- from the limo driver, to the people who check you in -- you feel welcome, and appreciated (which is always nice when you part with some money to do something). Over all, highly recommend and we plan on going back during our next trip to Vegas. Nothing beats leaving your hotel at 7 and being back at 10:30 after seeing the Grand Canyon. Most bus tours are 15+ hours and you need a whole day. For this, we barely needed a morning. AAA+++

Picked up in stretch limo which was a bit of overkill. Asked by operator on arrival if w could change to afternoon tour because of mechanical problems with one of the helicopters but flatly refused. However, helicopter pilot was brilliant and provided very informative tour out and back from canyon.
