What You Can Expect

Las Vegas Combo Tour: Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight and Colorado River Float Day Trip

Las Vegas Combo Tour: Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight and Colorado River Float Day Trip

After hotel pickup, board your state-of-the-art helicopter for a 60-minute scenic air tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim. Your flight will take off in Boulder City, where builders of the Hoover Dam (formally the Boulder Dam) lived during the dam’s construction in the 1930s. Enjoy panoramic, 180-degree views of the impressive Hoover Dam, the bypass bridge and Black Canyon, and fly past the extinct and colorful volcano, Fortification Hill.

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 $45 per person airport and fuel fee, payable at the time of tour check-in.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

Awesome! Combo helicopter and rafting trip is the way to go! Get to see the sights from the top to the bottom. Worth the money. A must do.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

We were greeted quite hospitably by the ground crew at 5 Star. This was an experience not to be missed. I felt very confident in our Pilot Matt and his professional skills and congenial mannerisms our flight was fun, fascinating and awe inspiring. Our pilot's take off and landing skills seemed to a recognized and appreciated forte'. Onto the River Tour, what an absolute amazing adventure and tranquil yet informative glide down the waters of the Colorado. Our Capt Slade made sure we were well-infomred about safety before taking off and was quite knowledgeable and fun with his history and stories. I would definitely do this part of the tour a 2nd, 3rd and even fourth time I only wished I had a kayak.
