What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: Grand Canyon Skywalk Express Helicopter Tour

Skip the Line: Grand Canyon Skywalk Express Helicopter Tour

This Grand Canyon experience begins with a hotel pickup in a luxurious stretch limousine, with transportation to the pre-flight lounge. After boarding an Airbus helicopter, enjoy music, narration and pilot commentary with the sight of major landmarks and historical points of interest along the way. The 45-minute flight passes over Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the beautiful mountain and sandscapes of the Mojave Desert; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead and finally along the winding path of the mighty Colorado River and into the incredible landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

The helicopter will land at Eagle Point, at the top of the West Rim of the canyon, to experience the breathtaking view from the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Skip the line and head straight to the bridge to enjoy the view. A professional photo will be taken and included along with a complimentary souvenir bag. Also, take time to explore this Native American village and meet members of the Hualapai Tribe. Learn more about their storied history and culture as residents of the Grand Canyon.

On the return trip, enjoy more of the sights and sounds from the sky, including the beautiful Las Vegas strip, before a final limousine hotel drop-off.

From pickup at our hotel and back again the service was great.
The helicopter to the canyon was the only way to go. Our Pilot John was quite entertaining and informative all the way. Only way to go !! This was our second trip with the helicopter company. The guide at the Glass Walkway was so nice to all of us. We had a great time. We will recommend it to our friends.
