Then descend into the depths of the Grand Canyon as you fly over the mighty Colorado River, past million-year-old geological rock formations. Make sure to have your camera ready, as around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and pillars with amazing natural vivid colors. After leaving the Grand Canyon, enjoy views of other natural wonders in the wilderness of the rugged Mojave Desert.
Upon landing in Boulder City, take a short drive down to the Colorado River launch area for your river float at the base of the Hoover Dam and the newly constructed bypass bridge. Here you'll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will help you board your comfortable river raft. Float down the river and through the Black Canyon, with high walls that will leave you breathless! Keep your eyes open for desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting.
The raft stops at a secluded beach on the river so you can cool off in the refreshing clear waters. You can also enjoy your picnic box lunch on the beach while taking in the sights and sounds of Black Canyon.
Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. You'll have the chance to shop for souvenirs before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.
Bonus Grand Canyon West Landing:
Tour includes an approximately 30-minute landing at Grand Canyon West Airport with time to explore the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop where you can purchase Grand Canyon and Skywalk souvenirs, jewelry and items crafted by Native American artisans.
Please note: The listed price does not include a $35 per person airport and fuel fee, payable at the time of tour check-in.

5 Star gave us a first-class ride from our hotel to the airport, where Mischa (our pilot) was amazing! Her personality just shined as we headed to the helicopter for an absolutely amazing ride past Hoover Dam and into the Grand Canyon. There was no wind, so she gave us a bird's eye view of everything. The helicopter ride could not have been better! Mischa was very informative about the area as well. We then rode in luxury again to our rafting trip. Leslie was our tour guide for the rafting trip and she was very informative as well and an amazing boat operator. There was a little mix-up on our transportation back to the hotel, but a wonderful gentleman from 5 Star gave us a ride back. Come to find out...he was the owner! Thank you all for a great day!!!

Helicopter tour was amazing thanks to 5 star grand canyon helicopter tours. The pilot was just super friendly and a really cool person. The raft ride was also awesome, but it would have been nice to be in a smaller raft and maybe a shorter ride.
