Viator Exclusive: Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour with Optional Below-the-Rim Landing and Skywalk Upgrade

This Grand Canyon experience begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup en route to Henderson Executive Airport just south of the city. 

After boarding the aircraft, the 45-minute flight passes over sites like Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead; Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano before soaring 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.

Upon landing at the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, enjoy approximately 3.5 hours to explore the various overlooks and highlights in the area. Visit Eagle Point, home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Upgrade for a ticket to experience the breathtaking view from this unique vantage point.

Then at Guano Point, see the Grand Canyon up close from the top of an old Guano Mine. Hike the side trail to the mine or go up and over the rocky hill to see incredible view from what feels like the top of the world. Also, visit the Hualapai Ranch to go horseback riding (for an additional fee) or enjoy a variety of cowboy entertainment activities, like wagon rides, roping demonstrations and more.

Make sure to take time for lunch at one of the viewpoints, which is included in the price of the tour.

As an added option, take a helicopter flight to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. While hovering high above, swoop down between the canyon’s walls and land on the bottom. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. 

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

Notice: There is a maximum capacity of six people per helicopter, plus the pilot. The listed price does not include a $15 (USD) per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. All passengers 18 years of age and older must present a photo ID at the time of check-in.

Was initially very easy to book, transfer to airport was very relaxed an informative. Checking in was straightforward everything was explained. The flight was amazing views of Hoover dam and Grand Canyon from the air is something everyone should see. Pilot was friendly and kept us informed of where to look. The canyon itself and the skywalk was amazing, it's a must do for anyone who visits Las Vegas

Excellent! Pick on time at our hotel at 7.40 (flight at 9.00), smooth transfer to Henderson airport, all the staff was nice. Our pilot, Andrew, was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Helicopter flight: truly a great experience! And 3 full hours at GC West, to use as wanted, with free shuttle there.

An excellent day, where the views speak for themselves! The helicopter was a great experience, particularly the trip to the bottom of the Canyon which gave spectacular views of the Canyon. A nice lunch at Guano point. All in all a very slick operation and highly recommended.

This is an incredible way to see the wonder that is the Grand Canyon. If it is not enough to see from above, the view from within the canyon is just as awe inspiring. You get a completely different perspective from the bottom. Plenty of time to see all the spots on the west rim. The company is very professional with excellent facilities. Highly recommended!!

Seamless service from pick up, transfer to airport, helicopter ride and canyon experience. Right amount of time in canyon.

Only downer, lunch however that has nothing to do with Viator or this tour which was with the local helicopter company. Had to wait ages so mad sure you give yourself a it of time and food was less than average.

Highly recommend this tour, Viator and Maverick.

This was an excellent trip and was thoroughly enjoyed by us both. Tony was our superb guide and pilot, who was both knowledgeable, engaging and was excellent throughout our whole trip. We paid extra for the below-the-rim landing and the skywalk - both were certainly worth doing. The skywalk was a little disappointing as you aren't allowed to take your camera out there I understand why but still disappointing, however the experience of walking on it was quite something. The below-the-rim landing....just wow. Something that has to be experienced!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This tour was the best we did, helicopter the best way to get to the canyon. Our pilot was great, but we all
expected the tour to be longer than it was.
