Itinerary

Your Grand Canyon helicopter tour starts with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel by a luxury van.

After your transfer to the airport in Boulder City, receive a warm welcome from your pilot and a safety briefing for your flight in a state-of-the-art A-Star helicopter. Then take to the skies for your flight to the Grand Canyon. You'll get amazing views along the way, passing over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill and the dark volcanic cliffs of the Black Canyon.

When you arrive at the Grand Canyon, your pilot flies you through the canyon to look at the colorful rock walls and see the Colorado River up close, then follow the path of the Colorado River past rock formations that formed millions of years ago. Keep your camera handy for photo ops of cathedral buttresses, sculptural rock pillars and enormous canyon expanses everywhere you look.

During the return flight, see other natural wonders such as the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness.

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a must-do when in the American Southwest. Choose from departure times throughout the day, which make this once-in-a-lifetime experience an easy excursion from Las Vegas.

Hoover Dam (Pass By)

Take a break from the Las Vegas bustle and have some fun of a different kind on this helicopter tour to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World -- the Grand Canyon! You’ll be picked up from your Vegas hotel by a Mercedes Benz van and driven to the helicopter departure site in Boulder City, where builders of the Hoover Dam (formally the Boulder Dam) lived during the dam’s construction in the 1930s. After boarding your state-of-the-art A-Star helicopter, set off on your 90-minute flight to the Grand Canyon. Enroute, enjoy amazing aerial views of the Hoover Dam and the new bypass bridge, Lake Mead and Black Canyon.

Fortification Hill (Pass By)

Fly past Fortification Hill, an extinct, colorful volcano, and listen to informative commentary from your pilot.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area (Pass By)

Fly over Lake Mead, created after the building of the Hoover Dam in 1931.

Colorado River (Pass By)

When you reach the Grand Canyon, descend into its depths and soar like an eagle over the Colorado River, past geological rock formations that are millions of years old. Don't forget your camera! Around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and rock pillars with amazing, vivid colors!

Las Vegas Strip (Pass By)

Your helicopter tour concludes with a flight over the Las Vegas Strip including panoramic views of the Downtown Las Vegas, Caesars Palace, Bellagio, City Center, Mandalay Bay Resort and the Raiders Stadium.

Amazing tour!
BERT_B, May 2022
Pilot, Mad Dog, has a wealth of knowledge and made the tour extra fun! We thoroughly enjoyed it. The pick up at our hotel was right on time. Thank you!!
Fun but crowded
Joe_P, May 2022
The experience was great but 4 grown adults in the back was too crowded. We struggled to see and my husband could not move at all. If one of the 4 people is a small child, it would be ok but 4 grown adults is not. Otherwise it was great. The pilot was good to answer questions and tell you things that were coming up.

One of the best experiences Of my life! Ray was an amazing tour guide/pilot. He was very knowledgeable and funny (loved the dad jokes!) The view coming over the ridge and seeing the canyon for the first time brought tears to my eyes. Would highly recommend!
Highlight of our vacation!
John_A, Apr 2022
We had a fabulous 12-day vacation, but this tour was the highlight of our trip! I don't remember the pilots name but he did a great job and was very knowledgeable about the area as well as the West rim of the Grand Canyon. We debated about which tour to take but we are so glad we did this one. After a few days in Vegas we got a car and drove to the south rim, but seeing Vegas, the Canyon and the Hoover Dam from the air was just spectacular! Pictures just don't tell the wonder that God created!! The only down fall was because of Covid restrictions we were unable to use the mics on the headsets to ask questions. The pilot had a solution for that though. He had us write down our questions and he answered through his headset. You won't be disappointed with this tour.
Awesome!
Helen_L, Apr 2022
Seeing the Grand Canyon from above was amazing! Breathtaking! We would highly recommend this company! Very professional!
