Las Vegas Super Saver: Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

Grand Canyon Express Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas

See the world’s most incredible canyon from above as you enjoy a breathtaking 45-minute helicopter ride from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, flying over nearby sights like the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and Colorado River on the way. Anyone looking to maximize their sightseeing time during their Vegas trip will appreciate this amazing helicopter ride to view some of the Southwest’s top natural and man-made attractions.

Start your flight with either a morning or afternoon arrival at the heliport near the Las Vegas Strip (depending on the option selected). Then strap into your sleek, modern A-star helicopter as you take off for the short flight to the Grand Canyon. 

Glide above the craggy, canyon-strewn landscape of the American Southwest, passing over iconic sights such as the Hoover Dam, the Colorado River, Lake Mead and several extinct volcanoes heading to your final destination. As you fly, your pilot will provide interesting narration about the sights you pass on the way.

Soon you’ll arrive at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, considered by many to be one of the most jaw-dropping natural sights in the world. Spend the next 40 miles (64 km) buzzing over edge of this superlative-worthy canyon, snapping a few aerial photos as you fly. Soon you’ll head back towards Las Vegas, turning for one more sky-high pass above the city’s famous Strip of neon-lit casinos, before touching down at the heliport to end your excursion.

Excellent tour, very informative and spectacular views. Not too short as to be over too soon but not so long as to start getting dull. Just right!

Amazingly experience cost was affordable as some tours were way to expensive. We did not land but felt no need to either. The pilot was fun and knowledgeable. Pointed out loads of sights and information on them. Would recommend this to anyone. Thanks for the experience.

This was an excellent tour. We were lucky: the day was calm and not very hot. Thus the ride was very smooth. The pilot was very friendly and provided a lot comments and jokes in addition to pre-recorded narration. I highly recommend this tour.
