What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Day Trip by Coach, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk

Grand Canyon West Rim Day Trip by Coach, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk

Your round-trip journey to the Grand Canyon West Rim begins with hotel pickup on the Las Vegas Strip. Board your climate-controlled motor coach equipped with comfortable reclining seats and video monitors, and relax on the approximate 3.5-hour drive. Watch the scenery slip past through oversized panoramic windows and make a 15-minute photo stop at Hoover Dam over Lake Mead.

On arrival at the Grand Canyon West Rim, board an A-star, six-passenger helicopter with large vista windows for a 5-minute descent approximately 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor, where you’ll board your pontoon boat.

Enjoy a tranquil 15-minute ride down the mighty Colorado River, gliding past soaring sandstone walls. Then re-board the chopper for the return flight back up to the rim. Swap your helicopter for a shuttle bus tour to Guano Point for a bird's-eye view of the canyon. You'll also stop at Eagle Point, where you can view the Hualapai Village and browse for jewelry and crafts, before continuing on to the Hualapai Ranch for your cowboy cookout.

After a buffet lunch, board your coach for the return drive to Las Vegas, with drop-off at your hotel.

Grand Canyon Skywalk Upgrade:
Perched 4,000 feet above the Colorado River at the West Rim, the Grand Canyon Skywalk boasts incredible vistas on a glass bridge jutting from the edge of the canyon. Photographs are available to purchase in the gift shop after your walk.

Please note: The listed price does not include a USD $20 per person processing fee, payable at the time of tour check-in. The fee is required by our local supplier and is not within our control.

Cannot give enough stars for this! The helicopter and boat both give completely opposite perspectives both as amazing as the other. Whilst it might be a little expensive in my mind it is worth every penny.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

I would highly recommend this tour. The helicopter and boat ride on the Colorado river is a must. I was not sure about the Skywalk but think it is a must to say you have done it. Not a lot of time to see the Canyon itself so think this should be looked at but the tour itself was amazing.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

The Grand Canyon was amazing ! The only bad I could say about the trip was you were rushed especially when you do the helicopter the boat ride and the skywalk. I think if they gave you a half hour more you could do everything and not be rushed
