Know More about this tour

Your excursion from Las vegas to the Grand canyon begins with a scenic helicopter flight over Lake mead, Hoover dam, Fortification Hill and Temple Rock. Fly through the majestic Grand canyon as you head towards your primary destination, the Grand canyon West Rim. Upon landing, you will have approximately 3.5 hours to explore and take in the various overlooks and highlights of Grand Canyon West Rim. Enjoy a meal at the viewpoint of your choice.

You'll visit Eagle Point, home to the Skywalk. Upgrade and add the Skywalk onto your tour. The Skywalk is a glass-bottom walking surface that suspends more than 4,000 feet (1219m) above the Grand Canyon and extends more than 70 feet (21m) out from the edge.

At Guano Point, visit Highpoint Hike, where you'll see breathtaking panoramic views of the Grand Canyon and Colorado River. Also see remnants of a historic tram that stretched 8,800 feet (2682m) across the canyon to a guano mine discovered in the 1930s. Visit the Hualapai Ranch where you can go horseback riding. Choose from several horseback riding options, including a 30-minute trail ride that takes you to the canyon rim or an arena ride (additional fee). Also at the ranch there is cowboy entertainment, wagon rides, roping demonstrations and more.

Finally, if you select the helicopter upgrade option, youll fly down to a private bluff at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. You'll descend and land 3,500 feet (1066m) below the rim where you will enjoy the mystique and grandeur of the Grand Canyon from an exclusive landing site only 300 feet (91 meters) above the mighty Colorado River. Enjoy this breathtaking setting and make sure to bring your camera for one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. The activity lasts approximately 40 minutes and features 20 minutes at the bottom of the canyon.

    The best way to see it is from the helicopter! Amazing views and once in a lifetime experience. I would definitely recommend it!!

    We flew to and from Las Vegas to the canyon for about a 45 min flight each way. Driving by bus/van/car would have taken between seven to eight hours total. Spent two hours visiting three different vantage points skipping the Indian village. They utilize many buses for this on/off tour of vantage points so the waiting time for buses is five minutes or less. Then we went down into the canyon via helicopter for about a half-hour visit. The flight is awe inspiring! Breathtaking! This tour is a bit expensive but it is surly an efficient use of time. Both of us enjoyed it immensely.

    I've usually booked through Viator for my trips but will now look further afield in the future.

    This tour was advertised as Mustang Helicopters which I knew was part of the Maverick chain.
    These (IMO) are one of, if not the best help tour operators in Vegas.

    My only issue is that previously I have booked without the Skywalk option because its just a money grabbing tourist trap and is pointless and is just as expensive as it is pointless.

    Looking through the website it seemed as through this was the only tour available with a west rim landing so eventually we booked at an inflated cost. Even though this " exclusive" states "skywalk upgrade" we were never offered without this option. There was no "option" and the increased price was only available with skywalk already included.

    During the tour it became apparent that others had booked the tour that we wanted (without the skywalk). Some had booked through Viator from a different country and some had booked direct.

    From now on I will booking direct with tour operators if possible

    Excellent way to visit the Grand Canyon. Driving would have taken 3 or 3 1/2 hours each way. This took about 45 minutes. Big time saver! There are multiple viewpoints that you can see. We did the first which included the Skywalk (which was pretty cool). Lunch was included and was good. It is pricey but overall, you save time. If driving, you might want to stay overnight as it is tough driving 6 to 7 hours for the day. The view from the helicopter was amazing.

    First flight in helicopter but pilot made us feel very safe and we all had a chance to be in the front seats. Trip was amazing had a great commentary on points of interest and saw the Grand Canyon at its best. Trip to bottom was awesome
