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

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

This Colorado River and Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then make the 30-minute trek east before arriving at the Boulder City Municipal Airport to begin a 1-hour flight to the Grand Canyon.

After boarding the helicopter, pass over sites like 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.

Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above this worldwide wonder, then descend down between the canyon’s walls, over the mighty Colorado River and past geological rock formations that span millions of years. 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.

Please note: the listed price does not include a $50 per person airport and fuel fee, payable at the time of tour check-in.

We had a great time rafting down the Colorado River along with the Helicopter flight through the Grand Canyon. We would recommend this day trip adventure to anyone. The price was more than reasonable, for what you experience! Keep in mind, the trip is a whole day so I would not make dinner reservations for that evening. Excellent!!!!!!!!!

The river float day trip was fabulous. Our guide was very friendly, informative, great sense of humour and very attentive to our needs. If you don't like getting wet don't do it but we absolutely loved it. The lunch provided was good and swimming in the Colerado fantastic.
Helicopter ride was good but we were tired from the boat ride - I would recommend the helicopter first then the boat.
