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.

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!

5 Stars, This was the greatest birthday of my life, my friend got us this helicopter to the grand canyon for my 30th birthday and it was by far the highlight of my year!! The pilot and staff were very accommodating and even sang happy birthday to me. I will remember this for the rest of my life thank you.

The tour was simply amazing, flying high over the desert was one of the most memorable things I have ever done in my life, and once we landed at the grand canyon it only got better, the weather was perfect, the food was great, and the views were magnificent, I would recommend this tour over and over again. Thank you Viator!!

Absolutely fabulous trip. I was a bit apprehensive paying so much money but have to tell you this has been one of the top experiences I have had. From the initial hotel pickup to the helicopter tour and the drop off back to the hotel the service was excellent. The tour itself way passed any expectations I had and the Pilot named Mike was brilliant with his one liner jokes and great knowledge and flying skills over the Grand Canyon. The main word for my party of 4 was WOW WOW WOW and it will not fail to blow you away as the Grand Canyon is something else :-
