We booked a sunset flight with landing in the canyon. The landing site is located at the foot of the Hualapai Grand Canyon West skywalk, so if you have visited that you know where the extent of the tour will go to. The trip itself...More

A must when in LV. Amazing flying over the dam & canyon. We landed for the breakfast . Interesting watching the other helicopters land as we were there first. Only gripe is that there should be a vegetarian basket options. Definitely a must do.
