Visit the Grand Canyon by air, on land, and on water during a complete tour including an airplane flight from Las Vegas, helicopter descent with landing on the West Rim, and a boat tour on the Colorado river!

After being picked up from your hotel you will be brought to the Boulder City airfield (around 30 minutes drive from Las Vegas) to climb aboard the plane. Big windows will allow you to enjoy the incredible view during you flight. Up in the air you will journey towards the West Rim of the Grand Canyon and fly over the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. An audio guide will inform you of these sites (available in 15 languages - see "Good to know").

Upon landing you will then transfer into a helicopter that will take you down 4000 feet into the Canyon! On arrival you will go on a boat trip on the Colorado river, on board a little boat that offers fantastic view of the gigantic cliffs that form the Grand Canyon.

Stepping back onto solid ground you will take the helicopter back to the summit of the Rim. From there a bus will take you to the most beautiful sites in the Canyon : Eagle Point and Guano Point. You can cross the Skywalk footbridge, buying the tickets on arrival. At Guano Point you will have an amazing 360° view of the Canyon!

The plane will then take you back to the airfield where your shuttle bus will bring you back to your hotel in Las Vegas.
