Know More about this tour

Be picked up from the bustling city of Las vegas in early morning and head out to the wild west. The first stop will be the Hoover Dam where you will hear about the building of this massive engineering feat and have amazing photo opportunities.

Continuing on the journey, travel through the beautiful high desert of Northern Arizona past an ominous extinct Volcano and caldera, the 900-year-old Joshua Tree Forest before arriving at Grand canyon West, home of the Native Hualapai Indians. Here, you will have approximately 4-hours to explore these tribal lands and see sights such as Eagle Point (home of the Grand canyon skywalk) and Guano Point, and you can wander the Indian Village and see the native American dwellings from many different native tribes. You will also enjoy experiencing the Hualapai Ranch and western town. The amazing Skywalk is optional, paid directly to the Hualapai Indians (at own expense).

The Grand canyon is stunning but the exciting highlight of your day will be the flight over the rim to the floor of the Grand canyon in a state-of-the-art EC-130 helicopter, some 4,000 feet below. While on the floor of the canyon, you'll have time to explore and take photos at this amazing location, then fly another stunningly beautiful route back to the top. This, without a doubt, will be the most exciting family outing of your life.

Be transported back to your Las vegas Strip or downtown accommodations at tour's end.

    A wonderful day thanks Paul

    a very professional Tour. The Guide told us a lot of stories. He was not only a Driver. He looked, what we want to have and makes some stops for restrooms.

    It was a great experience!

    Bill was an amazing tour guide! He was very knowledgeable and I loved that our tour was 12 people. The day was packed but very well paced.... the tour exceeded my expectations! I was curious what this was going to be (although, I am a seasoned Viator user) as I was celebrating my dad's 65th birthday with a trip. He had never done anything like this and was very impressed with how smooth, professional, and spectacular everything was. Honestly, it was run so well. Again, Bill was fabulous!

    Great trip, our guide Peter was excellent. We had people doing both the helicopter and non helicopter option and that was handled very easily.

    The tour was great! We had an early start going to Hoover Dam first. That was amazing. And then on the way to the Grand Canyon, a few stops at souvenir shops and where the Joshua Trees grow.
    And then the beautiful, phenomenal, unbelievable Grand Canyon. The helicopter tour was the best! They were only short. Eg 7 minutes to get down to the bottom and then another 7 minutes back. I thought I wasn’t going to be scared but I wasn’t!

    On the day we were meant to go on our trip the weather was against us, Julian our guide still gave us the breakfast so we had not got up in vain!! Adventure Photo Tours offered us the opportunity to go on the following day or have a full refund, we opted to try for the following day! Good choice!! Our guide Chris Jones collected us on time from our hotel, and we proceeded on our tour! The weather was great and first stop Hoover dam! we had ample opportunity to get some good photos of the area! Next Joshua tree farm, again ample time to get in a look around! We then arrived for the highlight, the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyons West rim!! After checking in the pilot arrived and introduced himself, following a safety briefing we boarded the helicopter! The pilot,Tim a very experienced and professional man made you feel very safe! After landing at the base of the canyon we had loads of time to get in several photos! The flight out of the canyon was as exciting as going in!! We then had views from both the Eagle and Guano points! Lunch was provided at a ranch, this is the home of the Native American Hualapai people!! The lunch provided was excellent, choice of chicken or ribs. Either is very filling!! The journey home was relaxing after an eventful day, we were provided throughout the trip with plenty to drink and biscuit snacks! Chris was a very intentive and knowledgeable guide and wherever we went he was able to explain what we were seeing, often in a humorous way! Overall a very worthwhile day out!!!

    We visited on Thanksgiving day Nov 2018. We were staying at Ceasar's palace. The pick was on time as stated. Total number in the Mercedes Sprinter was only 12 (max is 14) which was perfect. After our pick up there were 2 others and we were off on our trip. No wasted time for shuttle transfers etc. either as we went to all the spots in our own vehicle (could leave our belongings there as well as it would be locked up when we got down) First was the stop at Hoover dam about 15 mins which is ample time for pics. We had chosen the helicopter tour of the canyon which was a great experience (about 30-40 mins total) which we finished first and met up with the rest of the group at the ranch. After a hot lunch which was very good we headed to the canyon and spent about 3-3.5 hrs. total walking around/hiking at Guano point. On our way back we stopped at Joshua forest for beautiful pics. We were back in Las Vegas by 5 pm (Total 10-10.5 hrs) and did not feel rushed in any way. Chris our driver and guide was wonderful. He was very cheerful all day even though he had to be away from his family on the holiday--clearly her loved what he did. Very informative about the area/events/history-even the flora and fauna. It was our kids first visit to the Canyon and they enjoyed it thoroughly (not easy to please teens as everybody knows!) We had a great time as well and learnt a lot of new things even though we have been there before. The journey was comfortable and breakfast/lunch and plenty of water was provided. Thank you Chris and Adventure Photo tours for a well organized trip and a memorable experience.

    Great guide, fantastic experience and amazing views. The trip covered all the main spots I wanted to see and was informative. The guide was very helpful, for example he went out of his way to find us some bighorn sheep before the tour ended. It was my first ever helicopter trip and I found it an amazing experience giving amazing views of the canyon. I would recommend this trip.
