What To Expect

Your Grand Canyon helicopter tour starts with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel by a luxury van.

After your transfer to the airport in Boulder City, receive a warm welcome from your pilot and a safety briefing for your flight in a state-of-the-art A-Star helicopter. Then take to the skies for your flight to the Grand Canyon. You'll get amazing views along the way, passing over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill and the dark volcanic cliffs of the Black Canyon.

When you arrive at the Grand Canyon, your pilot flies you through the canyon to look at the colorful rock walls and see the Colorado River up close, then follow the path of the Colorado River past rock formations that formed millions of years ago. Keep your camera handy for photo ops of cathedral buttresses, sculptural rock pillars and enormous canyon expanses everywhere you look.

During the return flight, see other natural wonders such as the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness.

Visiting the Grand Canyon is a must-do when in the American Southwest. Choose from departure times throughout the day, which make this once-in-a-lifetime experience an easy excursion from Las Vegas.

Took the one hour long helicopter tour. Had incredible views of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. The pilot was very nice, humorous and informative. This ride accommodates solo and couple travelers. Must try at least once in your lifetime experience :)

Helicopter tour
Anj_H, Feb 2024
18 years ago when myself and my husband were here in Las Vegas I was offered the chance to do this and chickened out It’s been a huge regret of mine ever since so when I booked to come back it was definitely something we had to do The whole experience was out of this world, I will admit I am not one for helicopters and my fear of heights made it hard at first to really enjoy it But the views oh my god it was breathtaking and to see one of the seven wonders of the world on a day where the weather couldn’t have been more perfect was a memory I will never forget!!! The staff were friendly and our pilot provided such great knowledge as we flew over places I urge anyone who comes to Las Vegas to do this trip you won’t be disappointed
Great experience all around!

Liz, Feb 2024
An amazing trip with a very professional team. We had just the west rim fly only trip, unfortunately it was a very dull day so the grand canyon wasn't glowing red like you see in the photos, but still an awesome trip.
worth the trip.

Kimberlie_M, Jan 2024
I was a bit nervous about my first helicopter ride - but I'll tell you - it was fantastic. Our pilot, Catherine (I believe) was outstanding, gave us lots of information about the areas that we flew over, had a lovely personality and was simply a delight. Totally worth it!
Bucket List

Everything went to plan. From prompt pickup from the hotel, safety briefing to the actual flight. Good flight duration, informative pilot and great views. Only six passengers 👍🏻
Good with caveats
Gilberto_P, Dec 2023

Just amazing
Andrew_N, Dec 2023
A must do when in Vegas! Amazing, really knowledgeable pilot, well organised set up. Ray gave us fascinating information as he was flying us. I’d happily recommend these guys to anyone. Five stars.
Best helicopter canyon experience!!
Guy_L, Dec 2023
Awesome views, Bethany was great pilot and kept us informed as to what we were flying over . Weather was perfect
plantin4fun, Dec 2023
OMG ... EVERY part of this trip was phenomenal! We were pretty tight - packed in - to the small helo (photos make it look bigger than it is), but we didn't care! Our pilot, Benny, was WONDERFUL and gave lots of info but was also quiet enough when needed to allow us to absorb the magnificence of the experience. It's a MUST DO adventure and well worth the money we spent. Everyone was friendly and you can tell cared about their passengers safety and to have a great time! DO IT!!
