What To Expect

This Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel limousine pickup in Las Vegas, followed by a 45-minute flight to the Grand Canyon.

After boarding the helicopter, the flight passes over sites such as the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering, and the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of beautiful Lake Mead. Also, soar over the Black Mountains, the Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees Forest, the Grand Wash Cliffs Wilderness, and into the incredible landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above this worldwide wonder, and then descend down between the canyon’s walls, over the mighty Colorado River and past geological rock formations that span millions of years. Be sure to bring a camera for the one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. After landing at a spot some 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) beneath the rim of the canyon, enjoy a complimentary champagne picnic lunch.

When leaving the Grand Canyon, the return flight will feature a different route with a fantastic view of the Las Vegas strip. The trip concludes with a Las Vegas hotel drop-off.

Incredible tour, fantastic service!
Kevin_P, Sep 2022
My wife and I had been on this tour before, and wanted to share it with my son and his wife. It was incredible the first time and even better the second. The views, picture opportunities and overall flight were fantastic. Our pilot was amazing and knowledgeable. It was not cheap, but definitely worth the money!
Worth the cost!!
Jim_W, Jul 2022
What an awesome life experience. The pilot (Sam schnike) made it A+. He was funny and knowledgeable. My wife was timid about flying. He made it easy for her. Thanks Sam!
If you see a storm in the distance opt out
William_N, Jul 2022
Considering we thought we were going to die, I wouldn't recommend this tour to anyone if the weather looks iffy. Our pilot was the only 1 out of the several others that took off shortly after us who thought it would be safe to fly into a thunderstorm & land in the Grand Canyon. It was so windy that I had to steady myself (I'm not petite, 5'9" & 150 lbs.) It was terrifying to be flying in the canyon in such high winds & thunderstorms. Not sure why this pilot was allowed to take such a risk with 6 passengers on board.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We apologize for making you feel unsafe. Your pilot took off in safety in accordance to the weather. after take-off weather changed beyond our control and what was predicted.Your flight returned with no issues because we felt the flight to be unsafe. We tried our best and we still weather advised all passengers and a full refund was offered.
Good pilot... very poor experience with everyone else. Will not recommend

Patrick_F, Jun 2022
The smile on my wife’s face as we took off and stayed throughout the experience and even after landing back at the heliport. Our pilot also did a wonderful job of pointing out highlights and providing context about what we were seeing. And yes, you also get a flyover of Hoover Dam and the Strip.
