This Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel limousine pickup in Las Vegas, followed by a 45-minute flight to the Grand Canyon.

After boarding the helicopter, the flight passes over sites such as the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering, and the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of beautiful Lake Mead. Also, soar over the Black Mountains, the Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees Forest, the Grand Wash Cliffs Wilderness, and into the incredible landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above this worldwide wonder, and then descend down between the canyon’s walls, over the mighty Colorado River and past geological rock formations that span millions of years. Be sure to bring a camera for the one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. After landing at a spot some 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) beneath the rim of the canyon, enjoy a complimentary champagne picnic lunch.

This experience was absolutely the BEST!! From chauffeur to the pilot…everything was more than expected! My teenage sons wanted to sit up from with the pilot and…that’s exactly what they got. Our pilot was genuinely nice and interesting. He answered all of our questions and gave lots of information. This is a must do, trip!! You won’t be disappointed 😉

Absolutely beautiful views, wonderful pilot and amazing time that we will never forget. This part was 5 stars!!!! The disappointing part was the fact that another passenger was smoking a substance when we stopped at the Canyon side/floor. We were celebrating our five year anniversary and it definitely made it a little less enjoyable. We were surprised that it was allowed being it is a National Park. We don’t care & respect the choices of others, but wouldn’t have booked the experience had we known this was allowed.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We hope you enjoyed your flight and made some memories from the trip! We apologize on your behalf for the situation. Smoking is not allowed on the floor of the canyon as it is a protected area. We try our best to regulate everyone however rely on our guests to make the appropriate decisions. Thank you for taking the time to alert us.

Kaley was a great pilot. The trip was great and beautifully scenic. We wished for a little more time to take pics in the canyon so that we could have enjoyed the champagne part more but understand with so many flights coming and going.

It was everything I hoped for. I upgraded to the front and it was well worth the price. But if you sit in the front in the morning please be aware that the sun will bake you. Use sunscreen if you are wearing shorts.

AMAZING! Our pickup was smooth, limo and driver were good. AC didn't want to cooperate on such a hot day, but cold ice water + nice couple to share the ride + short trip to airport was good. Shuttle to helicopter was good. Our pilot Marcus was so friendly and knowledgeable about EVERYTHING in the area. Our snacky snacks and champagne were very good, and the little lunch basket was adorable (NO, you cant keep it). the music in the helicopter was really good. Yes, it is a little loud and bumpy - but you are in a helicopter. We were SO close to everything, you get such a great closeup view. We were told when we were going to be picked up, by whom, what the car looked like, the markings on the outside. Even pictures to show exactly what the pickup location looked like. the front desk employees were so nice and friendly. Short video explaining about the floatation device. Left a little late, but was fine. Our time in the helicopter, time in the canyon were what I read. Pilot warned us to get going to take pictures and check out the canyon, because the time does fly - and it did. Everything was very relaxing - except the heat - - 108 degrees in Vegas. We took so many great photos. On the way back, we were able to see the strip. One poster complained about the headsets, but due to Covid, we were not able to use the mics... not broken. One thing that was disappointing - we were asked on the phone if we wanted front seats... yes, please. When we got to the airport, they confirmed that we wanted front seats. But then, not another peep, until we were given seating arrangements at the helicopter - NO front seats. They were given to another couple, who were charged for the front. I do not know why. We were even there first... No explanation. Still not enough to dampen the experience - It was an amazing trip - definitely a must do!!
