Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

It's easy to see out the window on the comfortable airplane, which has only one column of seats on either side. And there's the opportunity for more spellbinding views with a helicopter descent into the Grand Canyon or a visit to the glass-bottomed Skywalk perched high above the canyon floor.

What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk

Grand Canyon West Rim Air and Ground Day Trip from Las Vegas with Optional Skywalk

This Grand Canyon West Rim tour experience begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup, followed by a quick trip to Henderson Executive Airport just south of the city. 

After boarding the aircraft, the 45-minute flight passes over sites like Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead; Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano before soaring 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 landing, take a shuttle to Guano Point to see the Grand Canyon up close from the top of an old Guano Mine. Hike the side trail to the mine or go up and over the rocky hill to see an incredible view from what feels like the top of the world. Enjoy a Native American-style barbecue meal while admiring the beauty of the canyon.

Then visit Eagle Point, home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Upgrade for a ticket to experience the breathtaking view from this unique vantage point.

As an added option, take a helicopter flight below the rim of the Grand Canyon to an exclusive landing spot. While hovering high above, descend down between the canyon’s walls and land on a bluff above the Colorado River. Be sure to bring a camera for a one-of-a-kind photo opportunity.

The trip concludes with a return flight and hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Notice: The listed price does not include a $15 (USD) per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. All passengers 18 years of age and older must present a photo ID at the time of check-in.

Shame about the wet weather on the day, but it didn't dampen our enjoyment of this natural wonder. The pilots Ray and Matt were consummate professionals but fun as well. The flight from Vegas over the Hoover dam was quick and easy and the helicopter flight into the canyon was a real experience.
Well organised - a bonus of having to be picked up at the hotel at 5 a.m. was that it was very quiet at the Canyon and we had the place very much to ourselves and we were back by just after lunchtime to spend the rest of the day inVegas.

Awesome trip this must be the best way to see the grand canyon. Achieved three of my bucket list on one day. Flight in a cessna, flight in a helicopter and ssaw the canyon from the top and the bottom. Well organised from start to finish great pilots Tim-plane and Scott - chopper right down to the pick up bus drivers. Skywalk is a must so add it to your trip. If you are thinking that the price is a little high, think again, I'd do this trip again if only just to stand one step away from mortality on the edge of the canyon
Mother nature at its best. You simply must do this trip. Well done to all to the local tour companies. you guys rock and make peoples dreams come true.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2016

We took the early tour on 17 March 2016, we were picked up at 5.45am and it was well worth the early start. Everything went like clockwork, the pickup, the flight to the Grand Canyon, the helicopter ride. All the staff were polite and helpful and made you feel relaxed. We've never been in a helicopter before. It was ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC. Megan, the pilot of the plane made you feel relaxed, and the helicopter pilot, sorry we forgot his name was brilliant too. They both helped with taking photo's and advising the best shots. We cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Maverick as a company were brilliant. If you're thinking of doing it, go Maverick. Thankyou for an experience we will never forget. Anna and Dave
