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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2016

This trip was excellent!! We were picked up by limo and taken to the departure building about 5mins drive away - really comfortable area to wait in before our trip!!
Our pilot was Johnny and he was absolutely great, very knowledgeable and put everyone at ease!!
When we got to the Canyon, we were whisked to the Skywalk by our guide Glenda who was also excellent. We had some great photos taken on the Skywalk and then got to take our own from the ledge at the side before our journey home which included flying over the strip!!
Overall I'd massively recommend this tour - better value for money than any other we could find, and great for time - saves spending 10 hours on a coach!! Loved it!!

Very fun trip! Being able to skip the line was worth it. You get one free photo but they take so many good photos, you will want to buy the entire package of pictures...they are really good.

Cant rate this highly enough absolutely highly enough, and the company who we flew with were so professional, obviously I was really anxious about my first helicopter flight but they made me feel so safe it was great. The flight showed us all aspects of the canyon and hoover dam and we took some great photos while in flight, then the skywalk part was also so well organised .
Overall I would highly recommend this trip through Viator.
