This Grand Canyon experience begins with a hotel pickup in a luxurious stretch limousine, with transportation to the pre-flight lounge. After boarding a helicopter, enjoy music, narration, and pilot commentary with the sight of major landmarks and historical points of interest along the way. The flight passes over the Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the beautiful mountain landscapes 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.
While hovering high above the canyon, swoop down between its walls and land on the canyon floor. 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. Additionally, enjoy a boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations.
Then the helicopter lift offs and lands at Eagle Point for time to explore at the top of the canyon's West Rim. Visit the Eagle Point Indian Village, learning about Native American history and culture. Meet members of the Hualapai Tribe, and discover their storied past as residents of the Grand Canyon. Then enjoy a Hualapai Indian buffet lunch, served at Guano Point overlooking the Colorado River.
As an additional option, experience the breathtaking view from the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) above the floor of the 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.
There is a maximum capacity of six people per helicopter, plus the pilot. The pontoon boat tour may be canceled due to high water levels in the Colorado River. In the case of a cancellation, extra time at the base of the canyon is offered or a partial refund is issued.
