What You Can Expect

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

Deluxe Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour with Optional Private Helicopter Landing

Your excursion from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon begins with a scenic helicopter flight over Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Fortification Hill and Temple Rock. Fly through the majestic Grand Canyon as you head towards your primary destination, the Grand Canyon West Rim. Upon landing, you will have approximately 3.5 hours to explore and take in the various overlooks and highlights of Grand Canyon West Rim. Enjoy a meal at the viewpoint of your choice.

You'll visit Eagle Point, home to the Skywalk. Upgrade and add the Skywalk onto your tour. The Skywalk is a glass-bottom walking surface that suspends more than 4,000 feet (1219m) above the Grand Canyon and extends more than 70 feet (21m) out from the edge.

At Guano Point, visit Highpoint Hike, where you'll see breathtaking panoramic views of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. Also see remnants of a historic tram that stretched 8,800 feet (2682m) across the canyon to a guano mine discovered in the 1930s. Visit the Hualapai Ranch where you can go horseback riding. Choose from several horseback riding options, including a 30-minute trail ride that takes you to the canyon rim or an arena ride (additional fee). Also at the ranch there is cowboy entertainment, wagon rides, roping demonstrations and more.

Finally, if you select the helicopter upgrade option, you’ll fly down to a private bluff at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. You'll descend and land 3,500 feet (1066m) below the rim where you will enjoy the mystique and grandeur of the Grand Canyon from an exclusive landing site only 300 feet (91 meters) above the mighty Colorado River. Enjoy this breathtaking setting and make sure to bring your camera for one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. The activity lasts approximately 40 minutes and features 20 minutes at the bottom of the canyon.

Please note: The listed price does not include a US $15 per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2014

This was a great tour and well worth doing. We booked the tour with a "below the rim" landing and this was just amazing, really gave you a sense of how big the canyon is. The skywalk was also brilliant, although you're unable to take your own personal camera's with you. So any pictures, you have to pay for via the professionals, which is a shame, as they're not cheap! We also had lunch included and this was a basic but really tasty meal and made a change to having burger and fries!

The helicopter ride was just a truly great experience in itself and the pilot was very fair in ensuring everybody got a front seat experience, for those that wished to check out the front view! We had a good amount of time in the helicopter and this is probably where a large cost of the trip goes, as it took at least 25-30mins to get to the Grand Canyon. We had not booked to see the Hoover Dam and felt we didn't need to, as the pilot flew us over the dam, so we got a good view of this to.

A brilliant service from the tour company and a special thanks to the pilot Migual.

My 14 year old nephew and I took this tour on our recent trip to Las Vegas. It was the highlight of the trip for both of us. Starting with the shuttle, which picked us up at exactly the time we were told, to the ease of check-in, to the helicopter ride itself, everything went like clockwork. We arrived at the hangar at 7:10, checked-in and waited for our pilot, Tony, to call us to the helicopter at 8:00. Very easy and efficient process.

The ride itself was spectacular. We flew over Lake Mead and to the bottom of the canyon. Everyone has to follow the same flight path so there was no leeway as to what you would see. Luckily, everything was beautiful. The visit to the bottom of the canyon was quick (about 20 minutes), but it was quite thrilling to be so close to the River. I have been to the South Rim twice, but this was my first visit to the West Rim.

From there we flew to the "airport" where we took the shuttle to the Skywalk. (We skipped the first shuttle stop since time was a little limited. The third stop was definitely our favorite and where we spent most of our time.) The Skywalk was a "once is enough" event. It's not as long as it looks in photos and, even with the very limited about of people this time of year, felt crowded. I'm glad I did it once, but wouldn't do it again.

The third stop (Eagle Point and Guano Point) was the prettiest with the best view of the Colorado. We also had a good meal there which was included in the tour price. We spent most of our time here before taking the shuttle back to the helicopter and flying back to Vegas. I'd say that this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but I would love to do it again some day.
