Your round-trip journey to the Grand Canyon West Rim begins with hotel pickup on the Las Vegas Strip. Board your climate-controlled motor coach equipped with comfortable reclining seats and video monitors, and relax on the approximate 3.5-hour drive. Watch the scenery slip past through oversized panoramic windows and make a 15-minute photo stop at Hoover Dam over Lake Mead. On arrival at the Grand Canyon West Rim, board an A-star, six-passenger helicopter with large vista windows for a 5-minute descent approximately 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the canyon floor, where you’ll board your pontoon boat. Enjoy a tranquil 15-minute ride down the mighty Colorado River, gliding past soaring sandstone walls. Then re-board the helicopter for the return flight back up to the rim. Swap your helicopter for a shuttle bus tour to Guano Point for a bird's-eye view of the canyon. You'll also stop at Eagle Point, where you can view the Hualapai Village and browse for jewelry and crafts, before continuing on to the Hualapai Ranch for your cowboy cookout. After a buffet lunch, board your coach for the return drive to Las Vegas, with drop-off at your hotel.

Whether you already live somewhere along the Rocky Mountains, or whether you’re from Europe, this is the best use of a day if one happens to be in Las Vegas. Hotel pickup went smoothly. Transfer to travel buses was organized nicely. The drivers offered bits of history and tips to passengers. The Hoover Dam stop was just long enough. Once we arrived at the Hualapai territory, our driver quickly got us oriented to the system of shuttle buses. We had already been given maps, as well as reviewed the time table and dining options. Those of us who opted for the helicopter ride down to the base of the canyon, and a boat ride in the river did that activity first. It was amazing, and exceeded all expectations. We had ample time to make the other three stops, step out on to the SkyWalk, hike out on the beautiful terrain at Guano point, and ride horses at the Hualapai village. I was out of time at that point, but the staff was helpful and let me pack up my barbecue chicken with all the fixins, and take it back to the bus. Our tour group included Americans from all over, as well as many Europeans, south and Central Americans, and it’s safe to say everyone really enjoyed themselves immensely. Highest recommendation for this day trip.
This tour allows you to drive through the Nevada desert, helicopter down into the canyon, boat along the Colorado river and then shuttle around to the 3 different viewpoints of the West rim for photos. What an amazing experience. Make sure you have the whole day free if choosing this tour as we were picked up at 6:15am and got back to our hotel at 7pm.
On the way out we had a brief photo stop at the Hoover Dam. We had just enough time to walk up the steep incline to the viewing point, take photographs and get down again. On the way to the canyon the driver related a lot of the history about the dam, the area and Las Vegas its self, very interesting. When we arrived at the canyon we had to get checked in for the helicopter tour and was offered the option to do the Sky Walk for 25 even though we had not previously booked it. The ride along the canyon and slowly dropping to the bottom was very smooth. Our Hualapai guide took us up river then cut the engine and let us drift back down. Clear blue sky, warm sun, majestic cliffs and only the odd gurgle of the water to break the silence. Absolutely wonderful. The flight back along the canyon and back to the top was just as smooth as the decent. The Sky Walk was a bit of a disappointment because they let people walk on it with no shoe covers now and the glass has become scratched. This takes away a bit of the magic because your eyes focus on the scratches before taking in the beauty of the valley below. You have to choose what bits you want to do after the helicopter and boat ride, Hualapai Ranch, Eagle Point and Guano Point because there is not enough time to do them all justice. We can not recommend this tour highly enough.
This was a great tour, we did the helicopter and float down the Colorado and definitely worth the extra cost. After also having done the south rim tout, this tour was by far a closer travel time from Las Vegas
ALL GOOD EXCEPT NOT ENOUGH CANYON TIME, ANOTHER HOUR WOUD'VE BEEN BLISS. Thomas THE DRIVER WAS A HOWEVER! RIVER TRIP WONDERFUL...WHT A PLACE AND TRIP THRU DESERT GOOD TOO. TOO LONG WTG FOR FLIGHT THO, PRECIOUS TIME WASTED.AND U CAN'T TAKE PIX ON SKYWALK? RIDICULOUS!
My first time to the States and I had to see The Grand Canyon and I wanted to make it a memory I would never forget. The helicopter ride was amazing, the view spectacular. The boat ride up the Colorado River was a bit of a disaster. The Skyview Walk was definitely a once in a lifetime experience!
