Experience one of GC Flight’s breathtaking airplane tours that take guests on an incredible tour of Southern Nevada and Arizona’s most notable landmarks. Daily flights depart from either fabulous Las Vegas or charming Boulder City, Nevada to experience the region’s most unforgettable locations, in one of the most Las Vegas desert tours around.
Once guests arrive at the private airport terminal, their air-only sightseeing tour begins by overlooking Lake Mead, which is a popular recreational area for Las Vegas locals. Located on the Colorado River and less than a half hour from the Strip, Lake Mead is considered the largest reservoir in the United States in terms of maximum water capacity, and is the 16th largest man made lake in the world.
As one of the most unique airplane tours included is a flight over the mighty Hoover Dam. Our guests will be able to turn their attention to the historic Hoover Dam, located directly on the Nevada/Arizona state border. The Hoover Dam is considered “One of the greatest engineering achievements in human history.” As our guests fly by, they will be able to see the beautiful and distinctive Art Deco designed styling and the adjoining Hoover Dam bypass bridge. The views are definitely something you wouldn’t be able to see on a Hoover Dam bus tour.
For the next 80 miles of our journey, guests can settle in and enjoy the comfort and luxury of the flight as tehy fly through the heart of Arizona’s magnificent Grand Canyon. Considered one of the “Seven Natural Wonders of the World”, guests will find themselves in for a real treat with an aerial view of Grand Canyon as this flight takes them through the winding ravines and colorful two billion year old walls to provide an unforgettable and winding flight to marvel at the natural tapestries of this magnificent setting. Guests will get a Grand Canyon aerial view like no other.
As our guests fly back home, they can look forward to enjoying the additional panoramic views of Southwest Desert as they make their original departure terminal, where guests will then be shuttled back to their respective hotels, having experienced a wonderful Vegas to Grand Canyon tour.
