The world famous Grand Canyon Skywalk is unlike anything else in the world! This amazing piece of architecture stretches 70 feet out from the rim of the Grand Canyon and towers nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. The Grand Canyon Skywalk is taller than any skyscraper currently in existence! This glass bridge is strong enough to support the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes (that’s more than 70 million pounds!), and the glass floor provides spectacular views of the canyon floor from this amazing vantage point. If you want to experience an amazing tour to Grand Canyon from Las Vegas, this is the one for you.
Guests will begin their adventure from their Las Vegas Strip or Downtown hotel, where they will be picked up and shuttled to the private airplane terminal. Once checked in, guests will take to the air, which will offer a bird's-eye view of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and extinct volcanoes. This is a fantastic time take some beautiful aerial photos of these spectacular landmarks, as our guests fly to Arizona and land at the rim of Grand Canyon West, home of the Hualapai Nation.
As one of the key tours Las Vegas has to offer, guests will be able to see the true distance from distance from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon West Rim, as they are transferred to the cantilever glass bridge for their “walk in the sky” and enjoy the Skywalk’s spectacular views of the Grand Canyon and the timeless majesty of the surrounding area, taking in that beautiful Grand Canyon West Rim weather, another perk of taking a Grand Canyon West Rim tour.
Guests will then board their plane to fly back to the terminal, and be shuttled back to their hotel on the Strip, having time to enjoy the rest of their Las Vegas experience, having taken one of the best tours of Grand Canyon from Las Vegas. All tour times are approximate and are subject to change. If you have any questions due to instances such as inclement weather conditions, please contact our office.
