Take a break from the Las Vegas bustle and have some fun of a different kind on this helicopter tour to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World -- the Grand Canyon!

You’ll be picked up from your Vegas hotel by a Mercedes Benz van and driven to the helicopter departure site in Boulder City, where builders of the Hoover Dam (formally the Boulder Dam) lived during the dam’s construction in the 1930s. After boarding your state-of-the-art A-Star helicopter, set off on your 70-minute flight to the Grand Canyon. En route, enjoy amazing aerial views of the Hoover Dam and the new bypass bridge, Lake Mead and Black Canyon.

Fly over Lake Mead, created after the building of the Hoover Dam in 1931.

Pass By: Colorado River, Nevada

When you reach the Grand Canyon, descend into its depths and soar like an eagle over the Colorado River, past geological rock formations that are millions of years old. Don't forget your camera! Around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and rock pillars with amazing, vivid colors!

Stop At: Grand Canyon West, Pierce Ferry Road To Diamond Bar Road, AZ 86434

We were upgraded to a tour that included landing on the West Rim (the area that has the see through walkway) and I am so grateful. Neither my wife nor I had ever flown on a helicopter so we were a bit nervous. Unwarranted. Everything was so smooth and non threatening and absolutely beautiful. Our pilot was Austin who was an excellent pilot, great tour guide and had just the right temperament for herding cats. The views were astonishing and never ending. Worth every penny.

great company, on time, professional, and serious about safety. The gratuity offered to the pilot was blown away--so give, if you do want to give, prior disembarking the heli on arrival return. This was a great introduction to the Grand sights-enough to do a road trip. Thank you!

An awesome once in a lifetime tour, our pilot Tyler was extremely humorous and knowledgeable about Grand Canyon and Las Vegas itself. We were picked up on time and all the arrangements were executed smoothly. The helicopter ride itself gave us a stunning view of Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. If you haven't been to Grand Canyon, this will be THE tour that you should take.

Got collected from our hotel. Need to be honest about weight as they do weigh you safety first. Six of us per helicopter, plenty of room. Pilot very good giving full commentary about the area and what we were flying over. My whole trip to Las Vegas was worth it just for this, you can't believe just how great it is until you experience it. Highly recommend.

What a fantastic experience. This was the highlight of our trip to Vegas. We should thank our helicopter pilot, Jimmy Long, who was genuinely passionate about his job and a thoroughly enjoyable person to be in the company of. We wholeheartedly recommend this trip and would do it again.

Helicopter was a great way to see the canyon. The tour operator picks you up and brings you to Boulder city, about 20 minutes from Vegas. We were taken on the helicopter straight away - no hanging around.
