Las Vegas Grand Voyager & Skywalk Tour

By Alley Keosheyan / April 20, 2017

On the Las Vegas Grand Voyager and Skywalk Tour, you can indeed have it all: all the fun and excitement Grand Canyon West has to offer, in one incredible day! After being picked up at your Las Vegas hotel and transported to the Boulder City Municipal Airport, your adventure begins when you climb aboard a Scenic/Grand Canyon Airlines deHavilland Twin Otter Vistaliner, retrofitted expressly for sightseeing with oversized windows. The works of man and nature dwell side by side in this vast, austere landscape, including the Mojave Desert, mammoth Hoover Dam, and the high-flung Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bypass Bridge, the sparkling, azure waters of Lake Mead. The ultimate bird’s eye view of all this and more gives you a true sense of the size and scope of the land, and an appreciation for the technological achievements of these structures!

Your 45-minute flight concludes upon landing at Grand Canyon West, a Hualapai Indian Tribal Park, where you’ll experience the Grand Canyon in ways that are only possible in this area separate from the National Park, starting with a breath-taking helicopter descent to the canyon floor! You’ll float face to face with the Grand Canyon’s jagged cliffs, secret nooks, and tenacious plant life before setting down near the banks of the Colorado River, where your adventure segues to a smooth water pontoon boat to Quartermaster Point and back.

Following your rimside return flight, your Grand Canyon West tour continues aboard a tribal park shuttle bus. Next up: Eagle Point, site of Northern Arizona’s most exciting and sometimes controversial attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk! This glass-bottomed U-shaped platform projects 70 feet from the canyon rim, giving those brave souls who dare walk upon it the electrifying sensation of standing on air high above the bottom of the Grand Canyon.

Other attractions at Grand Canyon West that can be explored, time permitting are:

  • Grand Canyon West Indian Village, featuring likenesses of the historical homes of several Southwest Indian Tribes
  • Hualapai Ranch, a rip-roaring blast from the Southwest’s past
  • Eagle Point Amphitheatre, where Native dances and cultural programs are performed daily
  • Guano Point, where remnants of a defunct mine stand as testament to one of many ill-fated attempts to profit off the Grand Canyon’s natural resources

Your package price also includes lunch vouchers, which can be used at your choice of establishments and enjoyed at any time prior to your return plane flight to Las Vegas and return transportation to your Las Vegas hotel.

Tour duration averages approximately 8 hours from hotel to hotel.

She has ridden the Grand Canyon mules, hiked rim to rim, rafted the rapids of the Colorado River (and the smooth bits, too), enjoyed many a weekend on a houseboat on Lake Powell, logged countless hours on both airplanes and helicopters, walked on air on the Grand Canyon Skywalk and frolicked in the blue-green waters of Havasu Falls, all in the name of "on-the-job-training." Tough job, but someone had to do it, don'tcha know ;) She now makes her living as a freelance writer by day, bass player in a cover band by night.
