What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Las Vegas hotel, and then travel to a Boulder City heliport in a Mercedes Benz van.

The pilot points out landmarks on the ground below and gives some background on the things you see, before banking the helicopter into the Grand Canyon itself. You fly past rock formations in vivid colors, pass alongside cathedral buttresses and pillars, and then steer right over the Colorado River. Touch down at the Grand Canyon West Airport to visit the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop, stocked with Grand Canyon souvenirs, jewelry, and old West-style mementos. Take to the air for the return trip to Las Vegas, where a driver will greet you for transfer to your hotel.

The helicopter ride to and from the Grand Canyon was spectacular. My issues concern the stops along the bus route as well as the number of available buses. There were an insufficient number of buses to move helicopter passengers along to the designated stops. We waited over

Austin was a very professional pilot and informative guide. The flight through the Grand Canyon was spectacular, and not something that we expected. We would highly recommend this company and especially this pilot.
