Grand Canyon West Rim Combo: Luxury SUV, Helicopter and Boat

Go for the combo: Travel to the Grand Canyon West Rim from Las Vegas by luxury Tour Trekker, fly in a helicopter to the bottom of the Canyon, cruise down the Colorado River, then spend time at the West Rim. It's one of the best ways to experience the Grand Canyon, as traveling by SUV ensures tour group numbers will be small and you'll enjoy a more personalized visit.


  • Luxury Tour Trekker and helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon West Rim from Las Vegas
  • Drive through Joshua Tree Forest
  • Round-trip helicopter descent to the canyon floor
  • 15-minute pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River
  • Scenic views over the Grand Canyon from Eagle Point and Guano Point
  • Opportunity to take the Grand Canyon Skywalk (not included)
  • Deli-style lunch

What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Combo: Luxury SUV, Helicopter and Boat

Grand Canyon West Rim Combo: Luxury SUV, Helicopter and Boat

On your SUV/helicopter combo day trip you'll also visit Boulder City and travel over the new Hoover Dam bypass bridge. As you travel along Diamond Bar Road (Indian Hwy), you'll experience the beauty of the Joshua Tree Forest framed by the towering Grand Wash Cliffs as you approach the West Rim. The drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is approximately 2.5 hours each way.

On the crest of the Grand Canyon, your helicopter awaits you for your seven-minute, 4,000-foot (1,200-meter) descent to the mighty Colorado River below. You'll then board a pontoon boat for a commentated boat ride down the Colorado River which lasts around 15 minutes.

Back at the top of the canyon once again, you will have approximately 3.5 hours to explore, using the complimentary shuttle service to Eagle Point, Guano Point and Hualapai Ranch.

  • Visit Guano Point for fantastic views of the Colorado River
  • Explore the Indian Village at Eagle Point to gain insights into Native American culture
  • Take an optional stroll on the Grand Canyon Skywalk (not included, approximately US$30), the newest attraction on the West Rim, for amazingly unobstructed views over the canyon

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Our tour to the West Rim was wonderful. Our pickup at the hotel was on time. Jim was our tour guide and very friendly and informative. A quick stop at the Hoover Dam for pictures was sufficient. The helicopter ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and the boat ride was awesome. You get a whole different perspective of the Canyon than seeing from the top. The ride from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon was not as long as I feared. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Wonderful day with a small group. Really liked the fact that Jeanne stayed with us the entire day, but still allowed us time on our own. She was very knowledgeable and am glad we took the drive out instead of a quicker flight or helicopter to the canyon. Just a great day. West rim is awesome with the helicopter tours.

Awesome! We had a great day, with four other tour members on a very personal tour with many highlights. Our guide, Jerry was very knowledgeable and got the balance right by keeping us informed and making sure we got the most out of our day with some amazing views, great photos and great tips. Only one couple in our tour did the Skywalk - they enjoyed it, but said the helicopter and water views meant it wasn't really worth the extra cost?

This was the highlight of our 12 day West Coast trip for my wife and our friend (Mine was probably the USS Iowa at San Pedro).
Not the cheapest option, with the Jeeps, but smaller group size minimised any delays at Helicopter etv, and Bob was excellent at keeping us moving, whilst allowing enough time at each stop. We avoided the Skywalk, and appreciated the extra time to explore at Eagle Rock, and just take in the scenery.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

My dealing with this company have been nothing short of perfect. They are reliable, punctual, competitive and deliver exactly what they. I would highly recommend them to any potential visitor to the Canyon and as for our Tour Guide, Robert, who was knowledgeable, friendly and most helpful. Well worth the experience and all I can say is go with them.
