Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour and Colorado River Boat Ride

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Fly to the Grand Canyon's West Rim by helicopter, enjoy a glass of champagne with snacks, then cruise the Colorado River. This is a half-day tour, leaving you with time in the day free to explore Las Vegas and Nevada at your leisure.
  • Travel between highlights of Grand Canyon National Park with ease
  • Get birds-eye views of the Las Vegas Strip, Hoover Dam, and Lake Mead in a helicopter
  • Enjoy a glass of Champagne and snacks at the base of the canyon 
  • Hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off by luxurious limousine
What to Expect
Your morning starts with early pickup from your Las Vegas hotel in a limousine. Ride to the launch pad in style and board a helicopter to the Grand Canyon. Get a bird’s-eye view of the Las Vegas Strip and fly over the Hoover Dam and extinct volcanoes to arrive at the canyon’s West Rim. From the air, you’ll be able to get a real sense of the scale of the canyon. Descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) below the rim for a glass of Champagne and snacks at the base of the Grand Canyon, and then hop aboard a pontoon boat and cruise down the Colorado River. Learn about the geological history of the canyon and see its rock layers up close. Then climb back in the helicopter and fly along the north shore of Lake Mead. Touch down in Las Vegas, and then end your tour with limousine drop-off at your hotel.
