Overview
A round-trip helicopter ride, VIP access to the Skywalk and a pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River — this is the ultimate combination for a Grand Canyon getaway from Las Vegas. After a scenic flight over Hoover Dam, you’ll fly directly to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for a 15-minute cruise on the river. Then ascend to the West Rim and step out on the glass-bottom deck of the Skywalk. A souvenir photo and coach transfers are included.

What to Expect
Your morning starts with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel in an air-conditioned coach. Arrive at Boulder City Municipal Airport and board a helicopter to the Grand Canyon. Get a fantastic bird’s-eye view of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead on your scenic flight to the canyon’s West Rim. Soar above the West Rim and descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) to the bottom of the canyon. Then board a pontoon boat and cruise down the mighty Colorado River. Next head to Eagle Point and enjoy VIP skip-the-line admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. Get a true sense of the scale of the canyon as you stare down 2,000 feet (610 meters), and then take home a souvenir skywalk photo (included). Then hop back in the helicopter and follow a different scenic route to arrive back at Boulder City. Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Exceptional customer service from booking to the shuttle back to our hotel. Shuttle service made it easy to get to and from the airport. Staff on the ground and pilots made the helicopter rides a piece of cake. So cool landing in the canyon and riding on the Colorado river.
