Board the state-of-the-art helicopter and enjoy aerial views of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead as you fly along the Colorado River toward the Grand Canyon. Pass over volcanoes on your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. Your expert pilot is on hand to provide insight and answer questions during the flight. After flying 20 miles over the West Rim, your pilot turns and heads back to the heliport. Make a stop for lunch (included) before driving back to your Las Vegas hotel.
