Itinerary
Your aerial tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a convenient Las Vegas hotel transfer to an executive helicopter terminal for VIP check-in. Depending on the option selected when booking, you’ll either travel by minibus to Boulder City Municipal Airport or luxurious limo to the Atlantic Terminal a few blocks off the Las Vegas Strip.

Then step aboard an EcoStar helicopter for the 35-minute flight (from Boulder City) or 45-minute flight (from Vegas) to the Grand Canyon West Rim, enjoying unrivaled bird’s-eye views of Lake Mead and Hoover Dam while you listen to informative commentary from your pilot. See several extinct volcanoes, soar above Grapevine Mesa Joshua Tree and the Grand Wash Cliffs Wilderness, and take in the beauty of the Mojave Desert.

After passing the Hualapai Reservation, your pilot begins the breathtaking 4,000-foot (1,219-meter) descent to the floor of the Grand Canyon. Cast your eyes on the canyon’s sandstone walls, carved over billions of years by the winding Colorado River. When you land, relax under a ramada—a traditional Hualapai shelter—and enjoy a light picnic of sandwiches, fruits, and beverages. You'll also toast your adventure with a provided glass of Champagne.

You have about 30 minutes here to explore the canyon floor before re-boarding the helicopter for the return flight to your starting airport, followed by transfer back to your hotel. If you fly back to the Atlantic Terminal, you'll pass over the Las Vegas Strip for views of the city skyline and neon lights.

A really fascinating adventure like tour, with a stop almost at the bottom of the canyon for a picnic and some scenery pictures. Top class helicopters that look well maintained and very professional pilots. (i'm helicopter pilot myself)
