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!
