Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour with Basin Landing and Picnic

This Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then make the 30-minute trek east before arriving at the Boulder City Municipal Airport to begin a 35-minute flight to the Grand Canyon. 

After boarding the helicopter, the flight passes over sites like the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering, and the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of beautiful Lake Mead. Soar along the winding path of the mighty Colorado River and into the incredible landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above this worldwide wonder, then descend down between the canyon’s walls, over the mighty Colorado River and past geological rock formations that span millions of years. Be sure to bring a camera for the one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. After landing at a private spot some 4,000 feet beneath the rim of the canyon, enjoy a complimentary champagne picnic lunch.

When leaving the Grand Canyon, the return flight will include panoramic views of the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness and more before arriving back in Boulder City.

I must say the cost was well worth the experience. The pickup drive, Spencer was on time, courteous and fun. Got us to Boulder safely. The check in at the airport was painless. We had drinks and snacks and ready to board the helicopter very quickly. Staff was helpful and friendly.
Mika was our pilot. Soft spoken and safety conscious. There were a few bumps due to the wind. We landed in the canyon and had drinks and snacks for about 30 minutes. Back over the mounttaims and Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. What a cool experience!

Everything was as advertised, and better! First, the entire team was unbelievably hospitable! From pick up by Stuey in a very comfortable van, to the team at the terminal. They could have not have been more accommodating. Then the trip with Captain Mike Davis was a flight of a life time. My kids enjoyed his knowledge of the area, and the tour. He has a great sense of humor, and the soundtrack from take off to landing was phenomenal! The views from the helicopter were terrific, and flying into the canyon was amazing. Landing on the private bluff was fantastic, and I would say worth EVERY penny! Thank you Crew for a job well done!

This is a first class operation that I would recommend to anyone going to Las Vegas! Jim, our pilot was so nice and talkative. If you have never been to the Grand Canyon this is the way to about AWESOME!!! We just went on Aug. 15th at noon and it was pretty hot. Jim recommended Oct.-Nov. or Feb.-Apr. for the best weather. I will be sure and book this trip every time I go to Vegas from now on, as I am not a gamble! Thanks Serenity you were great!

This was an excellent tour. Everything went smoothly from picking us up at our hotel, to landing in the middle of the canyon, and then returning us back to our hotel. Our pilot, Jim, made the trip very memorable for us. We had a great time. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend this tour!
