What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour and Colorado River Boat Ride

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour and Colorado River Boat Ride

Take a break from the casinos to experience one of Earth’s most impressive natural attractions—and still have time to enjoy an afternoon by the pool. After morning pickup at your Las Vegas hotel in a limousine, ride in style to the launch pad and climb aboard a state-of-the-art A-Star jet helicopter with room for six passengers.

Get a fantastic aerial perspective on the Las Vegas Strip as you rise into the air. During the 45-minute flight across the desert and into Arizona, take in views of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam while learning about the area’s geologic history from your pilot.

As the 277-mile (446-kilometer) Grand Canyon comes into view, its awe-inspiring scale can truly be appreciated from the air. Fly above the cavernous expanse, which reaches widths of up to 18 miles (29 kilometers), and then descend more than 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) down the lip of the canyon’s West Rim. After this thrilling entry, touch down on the banks of the Colorado River, which carved the magnificent canyon over millions of years.

Enjoy a picnic-style lunch with Champagne on the riverbank, and then board a pontoon boat for a cruise down the Colorado River. As you glide along the gentle currents, gaze up at the canyon’s towering walls for an amazing new perspective.

After a 15-minute cruise, return to your helicopter and rise up out of the canyon for the return flight to Las Vegas. Your 3.5-hour tour concludes in the late morning with limousine drop-off back at your hotel.

The boat portion of the tour may be cancelled due to high water levels in the Colorado River. In the case of a cancellation, extra time at the base of the canyon will be offered or a partial refund will be issued.

Excellent, well organised from hotel pick-up, activity and return to the hotel.
We did have a hip-cup at the Colorado river, to me had no consequences, allowed me more time to view the wonderful scenery and talk to other people from around the world.
Brilliant, would do again if we return to Las Vegas

Unfortunately, our boat ride was canceled due to mechanical issues which really stunk. However, the experience of the helicopter ride alone is not to be missed. Our pilot was amazing: friendly, knowledgable, and a lot of fun. He noticed my husband's Star Wars shirt, so he played a song from Star Wars as we landed. Amazing staff -- from the limo driver, to the people who check you in -- you feel welcome, and appreciated (which is always nice when you part with some money to do something). Over all, highly recommend and we plan on going back during our next trip to Vegas. Nothing beats leaving your hotel at 7 and being back at 10:30 after seeing the Grand Canyon. Most bus tours are 15+ hours and you need a whole day. For this, we barely needed a morning. AAA+++

Picked up in stretch limo which was a bit of overkill. Asked by operator on arrival if w could change to afternoon tour because of mechanical problems with one of the helicopters but flatly refused. However, helicopter pilot was brilliant and provided very informative tour out and back from canyon.
