What You Can Expect

Las Vegas Tour: Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight and Colorado River Float

Las Vegas Combo Tour: Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight and Colorado River Float Day Trip

Your Colorado River and Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Head to the Boulder City Municipal Airport for your 1-hour round-trip flight through the Grand Canyon's West Rim.

After boarding the helicopter, pass over sites such as the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of beautiful Lake Mead; and Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano, before soaring 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.

Stop for 30 minutes at the Grand Canyon West Airport, and explore the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop. Look for Grand Canyon and Skywalk souvenirs, jewelry, and items crafted by Native American artisans.

After leaving the Grand Canyon, the return flight will include panoramic views of the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness and more before arriving back in Boulder City.

From there, take a short drive to the Colorado River launch area for a boat float at the base of the Hoover Dam. Climb aboard a comfortable raft, and meander along the river through the Black Canyon. Keep an eye out for bighorn sheep, osprey, and great blue heron in their natural setting. Then stop at a secluded beach to take an optional dip in the clear water, and enjoy a picnic box lunch.

The trip concludes with a Las Vegas hotel drop-off.

My sister, her best friend and I had the BEST time on this tour. It was a surprise for both of them. They didn't know what we were doing until the van picked us up that morning at 5:30am. That was just the first of many enjoyable moments of the day! All of our drivers were great along the trip. Our first driver, a woman, I'm posting this much delayed after our trip, so I've forgotten everyone's names was so great and she made a stop for us at the Las Vegas sign, which was particularly special, since we were there a week post LV horror, and the whole area had been made into a mass memorial for all the victims. This being my first time ever in Vegas, this first time seeing the famous sign will forever be etched in my memory. The crosses set up for each victim, all marked, decorated and adorned especially for them, seemed to go on and on. These memorials really put into perspective just how many innocent lives had really been taken. After our short stop we continued on to the helicopter adventure. After a brief info session, we stepped out to our heli with our pilot - a bearded Tom Cruise look alike, a co-worker couple from Sweden and away we went! The sun had just come up and the beauty was indescribable. Seeing this landscape from above was something I'll never forget! We stopped mid-way at the gift shop run by I believe the Hualapai Indians. My sister and I purchased a couple items, because they were cool, but also because the young man we were talking to there was genuinely one of the nicest people we'd EVER met. Our pilot Tom offered up a lot of very interesting info on our trip, and we did NOT want it to be over! BUT - we still had our river float coming up. We again had the greatest time on this portion! We had made friends on our initial bus ride with a fun couple from Wisconsin, who we are still in contact with, and we partied it up on the river! We brought drinks with us to enjoy we seemed to be the only ones who did?!? Our guide was informative and funny. Half of our raft was an Asian group that was covering themselves in their coats and were all DRENCHED in sweat. Even in October it got pretty hot on the river! We stopped at one point and a couple of the guys jumped right into the water as did we but we had suits on! We were tired after the trip - but not too tired to enjoy the Vegas nightlife! I think the point of this excursion, as with most, is you get out of it what you bring to it. So if you're out to have fun, you will!

Helicopter ride was the best part. Matt was the pilot and he was cool and very informative.. the rafting part was okay - the tide told a few too many corny jokes for my liking. Very informative and pretty.

This was a great trip and everyone was really friendly and helpful. We loved the boat trip along the Colorado with Brian, very informative. We were lucky enough to get a limo ride back to our hotel, an added bonus with John!!! Fabulous trip, highly recommend!

Wow wow and double wow! The most amazing trip and incredible value. Darren the pilot was so knowledgeable about the area and pointed out so much of interest and the flight lasted for longer than we thought it would which was great. The raft part of the trip was equally fantastic. Jodi our raft pilot really knew her stuff and was so entertaining. We were on the water three hours which was such fun, stopping for lunch and at other points for photo opportunities etc. Wonderful day and excellent value with brilliant door to door service.

Loved this trip, top to bottom -. Captain Brian was great informative and entertaining. Be prepared, you will get wet if you are sitting in the front on the boat. Pilot Scott was equally amazing, providing much information on the sights. The views were spectacular! In a heartbeat, I would take this tour again.

We were picked up at 5.30am from our hotel on the strip, we met our helicopter pilot Tyler and were up in the air by 7am, we flew over Lake Mead and the canyon for about 35 minutes then landed at one of the Indian settlements for roughly 20 minutes, then back on the helicopter for another 35 minutes over the Hoover Dam and more of the canyon and Colorado River. Tyler was a very friendly and informative pilot, all 6 passengers were 1st time flyers and he was brilliant with us, the views from the helicopter were incredible. After the helicopter we were taken to Lake Mead and then on to the bottom of the Hoover Dam for the 3 hour water raft ride along the Colarado river, the guide was very informative and ensured we drank plenty of water and followed her instructions to keep cool in 106' heat, it was another amazing experience, so tranquil and awe inspiring, we stopped half way for lunch and ended Up back at our hotel around 4.30pm. We highly recommend this trip, it was a truly unforgettable experience above and at the bottom of the canyon.

With neither of us having flown in a helicopter before, my wife and I were very nervous about the flight. This was put to rest as soon as we got to altitude and moving along. The flight was amazing. We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the airport where we met up with the pilot and had a great photo op in front of the helicopter on the landing pad. Travis was our pilot and he was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us many fun facts all while being very personable. The views were incredible while flying, and we even got to see where we were going to enter the river on our raft adventure. Once done with the flight to and from the Grand Canyon, we were taken to the area for the rafting adventure where we were given our lunch and a sports water bottle. The rafting segment was totally different from the helicopter segment. While in the helicopter you can see the walls and how big they are, but you don't really appreciate just how high the walls are until you are floating down the river. After the river float we were taken back to the airport and back to our hotel. We would both recommend any one that is looking to do something memorable in Vegas, to go on this package. We both had a great time and would love to do it again.

Here are a few pointers if you are deciding to go on this trip
1. Bring some snacks. We got picked up from our hotel at 5:30am, and were dropped back off at 4:00pm.

2. Wear a long-sleeve shirt, a hat, and bring a can of sunscreen. There is no shade on the river and it gets hot.

3. Plan on a nap when you get back.
