Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Begin with pickup at your hotel in Las Vegas, travel to the heliport to meet the pilot, and board an air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter. Settle into a comfortable seat with personal headphones—if desired, you may listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon throughout the flight—then lift off for the flight across the desert. On your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, fly above Lake Las Vegas and Lake Mead, then see the Hoover Dam from the air, with perfect aerial views of the recent bypass bridge.

Catch your first glimpse of the Grand Canyon, then dive below the high desert to touch down on a private bluff 3,500 feet (1,067 meters) below the rim, and just 300 feet (90 meters) above the Colorado River.

In the shade of a traditional Ramada shelter, enjoy a Champagne toast and light snacks, chat with the helicopter pilot, or simply enjoy the scenery in an exclusive, uncrowded location. After your time at the bluff, board the helicopter for the flight back to Las Vegas, passing over the Strip on your way to the heliport, where you meet a driver for return transfer to your hotel.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older are required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Simply surreal and breathtaking!
Andy_C

When I booked, I did feel it was a little expensive: However having experienced the trip, I have to say it was truly amazing, an experience which will stay with us forever and was worth every penny. From pick-up, to the trip itself and even the return, it was first class all the way and extremely professional. The pilot’s knowledge and commentary was excellent and friendly throughout. The Grand Canyon was amazing and to be able to land in it and walk about and have a glass of champagne was totally surreal. My Wife was apprehensive at first having never flown in a helicopter before; But within seconds of takeoff she couldn’t stop smiling and was totally relaxed. The views of Las Vegas and the surrounding area were amazing and we took dozens of videos and photos throughout the trip. Definitely one to cross off the bucket list!!

This experience is a must for anyone visiting Las Vegas. The customer service from start to finish is seamless and enjoyable. The ride is enjoyable, educational and incredible. I had David as my pilot and he was amazing - I would book it again in a heartbeat (ps. I am also deathly afraid of heights and still enjoyed every second of the ride)

I booked this excursion several months ahead of the actual trip and it looked SO GREAT online, but as the day came closer I began to get TERRIFIED!! A word of advice from personal experience? Don't be scared!! It's the most beautiful and exhilarating experience I've ever had!! Travis was our professional but hilarious pilot who was engaging and knowledgeable about the terrain we were flying over and the history of the land. I mean, DIG IT!! We went INTO the Grand Canyon in a HELICOPTER and drank champagne on a Thursday when we should have been at work 😉 I have just booked another day trip with Viator in St. Petersburg, Florida in October and I have the utmost confidence that everything will line up just the way it has been laid out to me. Viator was clear about the details and every single one of my expectations were met. I highly recommend Viator for booking your vacation and entertainment and day trip activities and trips. I was more than completely satisfied.

Crap customer service
Carole_G

We were to meet the shuttle at the Strat at 9:40am. As we were driving there in an Uber, someone from the office called my friend who made the booking, to ask where we were. It was 9:38 am. We were just pulling up to the parking lot and she had already told the driver to leave. We asked for her to ask the driver to stop as we could see the van (he passed us as we were on the way in, him on the way out). She informed us that she had no way of communicating to the driver and we would have to get ourselves to the hanger. We ended up chasing the van to the next stop and got on the shuttle. When I told the driver he forgot us he said he was told to leave. On our next pickup stop we ended up waiting close to 10 min for someone. Then at the hanger we waited at least 20 min before boarding the helicopter. I was furious. It seemed like there was plenty of time to wait one minute for us when we weren't even late. I also don't know what the point of the phone call was when she had already told the driver to leave. No one addressed this issue at all when we reached the hanger. For such an expensive experience I expect better customer service.

Absolutely amazing! Jacob was the best pilot. He pointed out landmarks and shared some of the history of the area. The helicopter was immaculate and the ride was perfect! We had debated between driving to the Grand Canyon or taking this flight…it was worth the money and then some. It was our kids first ride in a helicopter and it could not have been better. They said it was the highlight of our vacation.
