What You Can Expect

Best of the West Rim: Grand Canyon Air Tour with Optional Helicopter, Boat Ride and Skywalk Admission

Grand Canyon by Airplane, Helicopter and Boat with Optional Skywalk Ticket

This sightseeing tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then enjoy the 30-minute trek east before arriving at the Boulder City Municipal Airport to begin the 1-hour flight.

Start with a pilot meet and greet, then climb aboard and buckle up in the fixed-wing Vistaliner plane, featuring panoramic windows for the ultimate sightseeing adventure.

Begin by flying over the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States, and its place of origin, the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering on the border between Nevada and Arizona. Fly high above the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, passing over West Rim attractions like Guano Point, Eagle Point and the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor.

Upon landing, take the West Rim Shuttle to Guano Point. Enjoy a light meal along the West Rim while admiring the panoramic views of the Grand Canyon. Additionally, visit Eagle Point at leisure for more incredible scenery.

As an added option, take a helicopter ride to the canyon floor and float along the Colorado River. Climb aboard a state-of-the-art helicopter and swoop down before landing on the canyon floor. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. Then enjoy a 15-minute pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River, looking up at the canyon’s many beautiful colors and stunning rock formations. 

As an additional bonus, experience the breathtaking view from the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon.

The tour ends with a return flight to Boulder City and a hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

To experience Las Vegas and all the well-known landmarks form the air was amazing...our pilots of both the plane and the helicopter was professional and we always felt safe....a hard thing to prove if half of the people of the group are either a pilot, aeronautical engineer or flight enthusiasts....! thanks to all for an awesome experience. this was a great way to start our holiday in Las Vegas.... if you are not a Las Vegas Strip fan and shows and neon lights is not your thing...do this trip - it will open your eyes to a totally different Las Vegas. Maybe after that go and visit the Hoover dam and dam-wall....

This was and excellent trip. From the plane ride out, to the helicopter down to the floor of the canyon and the pontoon boat ride on the river was just amazing and very well organised. Was a bit worried about the Skywalk as I am afraid of heights BUT so glad I did it. Was just so surreal walking out into nothing.

What an amazing trip! This was so worth doing, everything was more than our expectations! Well organised, even a phone call to us the night before we left England to inform us that the President was in Las Vegas and our pick up time would be earlier! Magnificent views of the Grand Canyon from the helicopter and the trip on the Colarado river was amazing. Although scarey the West Rim sky walk needs to be done to appreciate the wonderful views! Well done Viator for organising this trip!

My wife and I always wanted to experience the West Grand Canyon Skywalk. I usually drive to travel destinations, instead we opted for Viator to book Skywalk with air and river boat tour included. We enjoyed a comfortable bus ride from our Las Vegas hotel to to Boulder City airport. Wife enjoyed the commuter plane to West Grand Canyon and were thrilled with the helicopter ride into the canyon rim. I have many photos and videos to cherish this adventure. Thanks!

Excellent from start to finish. All timings were spot on. Fixed wing flight to West Rim offered great views of the Hoover Dam and the helicopter flight to the canyon floor was exhilarating.

The boat ride offered a different perspective from the valley floor as did the Skywalk, one looking up and the other looking down.

We can highly recommend this tour.

Great tour. Would recommend helicopter the whole trip vs plane out to canyon then helicopter down to river for boat ride uptheriver.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2016

We didn't do any extras so we would have more time to explore the points at our leisure - and we are so glad we chose this! We took the early morning tour and the lookouts were very quiet, at numerous points we were the only couple there, so we got great uninterrupted photos.
The food offered was tasty and the view was amazing.
Flights ran smoothly and staff were friendly.
Highly recommend this tour.

Beautiful trip. Recommendation: take the early morning trip because of more comfortable temperature and less of a crowd.
