202 reviews

No trip to Las Vegas is complete without visiting the Grand Canyon. Thousands of feet higher than the South Rim, the canyon’s North Rim provides impressive vistas, trails along the Colorado River, and a better glimpse at the inner canyon, all with sparser crowds than its more popular counterpart. Highlights on the North Rim include Bright Angel Point (a terminus of the famous Bright Angel Trail), Angel’s Window Overlook, Cape Royal, and Point Imperial—the Grand Canyon’s highest point at 8,800 feet (2,682 meters).

  • Open mid-May to mid-Oct

Great experience in the world
Everyone was very nice and greeted you The flight was very good it was about 50 minutes long. The pilot was very good. It was a little windy but she gave us a very smooth ride The only down fall is they put 6 people in the helicopter at once and 2 people are not sitting next to a window But other then that. You can’t a better experience then what they give us I would recommend them. If you don’t fly. Over the Grand Canyon you will miss out on seeing everything
