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.

Ride Into The Grand Canyon
Gary_P
, Jul 2022
Our family of five had an amazing tour from hotel pickup by shuttle to drop off by the same shuttle and driver. The private airport was beautiful and comfortable as we waited to board. We met two pilots who were a pleasure to talk to. Our pilot Bill was a great tour guide as well as a skilled pilot. He had great rapport with our kids and made them feel comfortable as they had never been on a helicopter ride before. As for the trip itself, it was a truly breathtaking view of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, and Grand Canyon. We flew deep into the canyon and it was an amazing view. We all had a blast!

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.
