When it comes to a Las Vegas Grand Canyon tour, picking and choosing is not your style. You want it all, and you want the best, end of story! Presenting the tour you want: the Las Vegas Grand Canyon West Skywalk Getaway with Heli and Boat. For you Las Vegas visitors who are short on time, yet still want to experience all that Grand Canyon West has to offer, this tour delivers!
Beginning with pickup at your Las Vegas hotel and transportation to the Boulder City Municipal Airport, your adventure commences after settling into your seats aboard state-of-the-art touring helicopters, expressly built for air tourism. As you glide over the vast Mojave Desert, majestic Hoover Dam, the O’Callaghan-Tillman Memorial Bypass Bridge towering high above it, and Lake Mead, one of the world’s largest reservoirs, you’ll gain a true appreciation for how integral this area’s natural resources, and the technological achievements that harnessed them, were to the quality of life in the American West.
As the Grand Wash Cliffs rise up ahead, your helicopter begins its 4,000’ descent to the bottom of the Grand Canyon! As you float almost close enough to touch the Grand Canyon’s jagged cliffs, you’ll spot hidden nooks where tenacious trees and shrubs eke out a life where sunlight is scarce and water is more precious than gold. Upon landing on the canyon floor, you’ll descend a short staircase where pontoon boats wait to take you on a smooth water raft ride to Quartermaster Point and back on the mighty Colorado River.
After your boat cruise and rimside return flight, you’ll tour Grand Canyon West by Tribal Park shuttle bus. First stop: Eagle Point, site of Arizona’s always exciting, often controversial attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk! Extending 70’ past the lip of the canyon, this glass-bottomed “U” shaped platform gives those with the courage, and the price of admission, the ethereal feeling of walking without a net high above the bottom of the Grand Canyon. Don’t forget to claim your complimentary souvenir photo of your stroll on the Skywalk!
Time allowing, other Grand Canyon West attractions you can visit are:
- Grand Canyon West Indian Village, featuring facsimiles of the traditional homes of several Southwest Indian Tribes
- Hualapai Ranch, a rip-roaring blast from the Western past
- Eagle Point Amphitheatre, where Native dances and cultural programs are performed daily
- Guano Point, where remnants of a defunct mine serve as a reminder of one of many ill-fated attempts to profit off the Grand Canyon’s natural resources
Your package price also includes a light snack, return flight to Las Vegas and transportation back to your hotel. At approximately 7 hours door-to-door, you’ll get back to Las Vegas with hours to spare for pool time, table time, show time or downtime!
