Small-Group Grand Canyon West Rim Day Tour with Optional Helicopter Landing

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 243.99
2 travellers
This is the most beautiful, historical and visually intoxicating experience you will ever have! Visit both incredible viewpoints: Eagle Point, Guano Point. You will enjoy lunch at the rim, stroll the boardwalk of the Hualapai Ranch & Western Town and see Native American Dancing and Dwellings. We also include a wonderful photo stop and oratory at Hoover Dam.

This incredible tour includes all the highlights of the 5 in 1 Tour plus you will soar like an Eagle on a breathtaking flight over the rim to the bottom of the Grand Canyon in a fabulous EC 130 Jet Helicopters. While on the floor of the canyon you have time to take photos at this amazing location and then you’ll fly another stunningly beautiful route 4000 feet up, returning to the rim viewpoints. This, without a doubt, will be “the most exciting family outing” of your life! Total time at the Grand Canyon including flight, approx 4 hours.
  • See the Grand Canyon from the ground and air with transport from Las Vegas 
  • Visit the Hoover Dam and a Joshua tree forest in Arizona
  • West Rim stops include Guano Point, Eagle Point, and Grand Canyon Skywalk 
  • Optional helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon for a close look at the landscape
What to Expect
Start with morning pickup from your Las Vegas hotel, where you ride in comfort to a half-dozen attractions in one day. Make a photo stop at Hoover Dam and a Joshua Tree forest during the drive. Upon arrival at the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, soak in the views from Guano Point and Eagle Point, where the Grand Canyon Skywalk is located (experience it at your own expense). You also walk through a Native American village, and go to the old west town of Hualapai. Helicopter Upgrade: This optional portion is a highlight for many visitors: the helicopter flight to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, a descent of about 4,000 feet (1,200 meters). Enjoy free time to explore before returning to the rim by helicopter on another scenic route. Your tour includes breakfast and lunch, and ends with hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Fabulous tour with an excellent pace. The VIP minibus was very comfortable and our guide, Chris Jones, was extremely knowledgeable and most attentive to every need and our comfort. We would highly recommend Adventure Photo Tours with Chris Jones as your guide.

About 10 min flight down. 10-15 minutes down the river - a stop for pictures. 10 minutes flight back up. It's really enough :)
