The problem with many other Grand Canyon helicopter tours is you may only spend a few minutes up in the air; however, this extended West Rim helicopter tour gives you much more flight time. Soar above the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill, and, of course, the Grand Canyon, while covering more ground than a bus or hiking tour would through the national park.
