Front of the Line Access to the Skywalk Attraction!

As a tour designed for anyone who wishes to view the Grand Canyon from a unique vantage point, the Grand Canyon all American Helicopter Skywalk Express tour provides unparalleled views and a cultural Las Vegas tour to Grand Canyon. GC Flight offers guests matchless experience through one of the key tours Las Vegas has to offer.

Once our guests arrive at the private helicopter terminal, their sightseeing tour begins by flying over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, two of Southern Nevada’s most popular and visited landmarks. Guests will be able to hear a narrated tour provided by our skilled and knowledgeable pilot as we then turn our attention to Arizona, flying over extinct volcanoes en route to visit the Grand Canyon’s West Rim and its most recognized feature: The Skywalk.

The World Famous Grand Canyon Skywalk is unlike anywhere else in the world. Stretching out from the rim of the Grand Canyon, this amazing piece of architecture is 70 feet tall and towers nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor – taller than any skyscraper currently in existence! Providing unparalleled and spectacular views of the canyon floor, this glass bridge is strong enough to support the weight of 71 fully loaded Boeing 747 airplanes (that’s more than 70 million pounds!). As far as a Grand Canyon from Las Vegas tour can go, this one is amazing. Get a feel for how far is Vegas from Grand Canyon.

The Grand Canyon West is also home to the Hualapai Indian Reservation. Here, guests can immerse themselves in the culture of this Native American tribe as they explore the surrounding area. As part of the Las Vegas to West Rim Grand Canyon tour, guests also get “Front of the Line” access for the Skywalk for a half-hour experience, picnic style snacks, and souvenir photograph (one per guest).

Once the ground portion of the tour is complete, guests will re-board the helicopter and enjoy additional panoramic views of Southwest Desert as they make their way back to their original private helicopter terminal and then shuttled back to their hotels. From Las Vegas to Hoover Dam to Grand Canyon, this is one of the best tours in Vegas!

    “Wonderful Experience”
    Reviewed March 17, 2013
    We did the canyon landing flight and were delighted with our experience from start to finish. From our entertaining and efficient ,driver, Dave, to the efficient and charming ground staff, to our calm, confident and professional pilot, Chad – we agreed that on any return trip to Las Vegas we would only use GC Flight. The fact that they are a relatively small operation we felt improved our experience. hovertron

    WHAT AN AMAZING TRIP!! We had a blast and have now ticked off one more bucket list item! Below I do have a few small comments….

    1. Many realize that there are multiple layers when one books an excursion. But it might be helpful to explain that GC will not be the name if the company actually providing and flying the helicopter. Not a biggie, but it may help with any confusion.
    2. My wife and I are ‘fluffy’ as you can see. The back seats were 4 across and with only us in the back it was VERY comfortable. The couple in the front was a guy my size and his tiny wife. They felt quite squished in the passenger seat. On the way back, to be fair to hem, we rotated and that meant we were VERY squished for the return. Not sure what can be done besides me losing 100 or so pounds , but it is simply a comment. Thanks for not making me buy a second seat!
    3. The limo for the return to the hotel did not take us to NYNY. He dropped us at the Monte Carlo. He apologized, but that was the way it was. I THINK it had to do with all of the construction, but that was not clear. Our thought was- if we could be picked up at the front door…….

    Thanks for all of the pre-trip communication as well. Great job overall.

    “Best views of Grand Canyon”
    Reviewed January 26, 2014
    Overall, an amazing experience. Very professional and the customer service shows. Got picked up by Arthur in a comfy shuttle from our hotel. Knowledgeable kid, and a nice short ride to Boulder city.

    The facility was immaculate and very accommodating. Cole was our pilot and boy lemme tell you, the heli ride was just epic. I’ve never seen the Grand Canyon, so what better way than flying through it and landing in it for a picnic–was like a real life imax movie. Words really can’t describe how beautiful the experience was… and no camera can really capture the moment. You just have to experience it for yourself–and I HIGHLY recommend you do.

    Hi Bruce,

    Thanks again for helping me book the flight over the Grand Canyon! It was a wonderful experience. You can’t get much better views than that.

    I hope you have a great summer!

    “Awesome, magical , out of this world.”
    Reviewed July 7, 2015 via mobile
    From start to finish the whole trip was wonserful. So professional and staff that were lovely,made time to make you feel welcome , recalled your names so it was more personal, not just a number as in many cases. Arthur our driver had lots to tell us about sights etc but at the same time took interest in us. We had a few laughs on route which made it too. Arrived at the airfield met more staff who were very professional. We were greeted with snacks and preflight drinks, beautifully clean lounge to wait in. Then the helicopter, it was fab and our pilot matteo , brilliant! !! Full of facts , filled with Italian humour absolutely faultless. Very competent pilot just wished the day had never ended. Could have flown around for hours. To have stayed a little longer for lunch would have been perfect because it was so quiet and mind blowing you want to savour every minute of the tranquility. This is truly a wonder of the world in every way. So the biggest hugest thankyou for giving us the trip of a lifetime in our 50th year. Best wishes keep up the good work. Katy and Richard
