Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour with West Rim Picnic

Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour with Basin Landing and Picnic

Before you enjoy a helicopter ride over the Grand Cayon, relax with iPads and wifi during a 25-minute van ride from Las Vegas to Boulder City. From there, experience the majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon from high in the air, on a a scenic helicopter flight to the West Rim. Your air-conditioned helicopter grants you an aerial view of the canyon’s iconic curves and multihued landscape, plus Lake Mead and Hoover Dam en route. A spectacular sight from the sky, Hoover Dam snakes through the rock canyon walls, cutting its way into the landscape. Choose to upgrade to a sunset flight, and watch the rocks change colors as the sun sets over the canyon. During the flight, you can relax and listen to your pilot's commentary about the Grand Canyon and its surroundings via audio headphones.

Once you pass over the terra cotta–hued landscape, you’ll descend and land 3,200 feet (960 meters) below the Grand Canyon’s rim for a Champagne picnic. Pop the bubbly and take in the sights from inside the canyon, with your pilot/guide nearby to answer any and all questions about the natural wonder or your helicopter flight.

After your picnic, catch one last sky-high peek at the Grand Canyon on your 35-minute return helicopter flight. Your trip will end at Boulder City Airport where you'll be returned to your Las Vegas hotel.

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 :-

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

This was an incredible experience. The Helicopter company staff are so professional and think of everything - from the pickup from your hotel in a black Mercedes van with all the extras iPads, cold drinks to the playlist in the helicopter, and the lovely picnic. Everything ran seamlessly, and the staff were very professional and friendly. The helicopter tour had stunning views and our pilot let us know lots of interesting facts whilst also allowing us time to take in the views whilst listening to music. A must do!

This was an unforgettable tour of the Grand Canyon and surrounds. Words cannot describe the beauty and awe of this natural wonder of the world. Our experience was the best ever. The staff from Jordan our driver to the lovely staff on the ground right through to Jim our Pilot are the best. They are a credit to your organisation. Jim was friendly, professional and gave us a fantastic story of the area. Well done. Dianne and Frank from Melbourne Australia.
