Tour begins once the shuttle arrives at your Las Vegas Hotel (highly recommended option), where you will be escorted to the private airport terminal and checked in for the flight. Our guests will truly get to experience how far Grand Canyon West Rim from Las Vegas is with one of the most excellent Grand Canyon airplane tours from Las Vegas around.
If you want to experience an excellent tour of the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, you’ll get no better view then once you’re in the air. All of our guests will have a fabulous aerial sightseeing tour of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and the West Rim of the Canyon before landing at the Hualapai Indian Grand Canyon West.
From there, guests will then enjoy an exhilarating helicopter descent of 4,000 feet from the canyon rim to the banks of the Colorado River below. Once at the riverbank, guests will board their boat and enjoy a relaxing cruise on the Colorado River while visually exploring the colorful walls and majestic beauty of the Grand Canyon as rarely witnessed.
After the boat docks from its voyage, and upon returning to the canyon rim via a breathtaking helicopter flight, guests will learn more about the native Hualapai Indians during a short-narrated motor coach tour. A light and complimentary boxed lunch (vegetarian options available) is provided at Guano Point, surrounded by sheer rugged cliffs that offer excellent photo opportunities.
Included in the tour is a pass for the Skywalk attraction of the West Rim. No need to purchase separate Skywalk Grand Canyon tickets because they are included in GC Flight’s airplane, helicopter, boat, and Skywalk combination tour. This tour is unlike anything in the world.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk tour showcases this fantastic piece of natural architecture that stretches out from the rim of the Grand Canyon 70 feet and towers nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. The Skywalk is taller than any skyscraper currently in existence, and the glass bridge is strong enough to support the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes, which is more than 70 million pounds. The glass floor provides spectacular views of the canyon floor from this fantastic vantage point.
As you fly back home, guests can look forward to enjoying the additional panoramic views of Southwest Desert as we make our way back to the Boulder City terminal, where we will then shuttle our guests back to their hotels, having experienced one of the best tours in Vegas!
