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.

Our experience was wonderful. We drove ourselves bc we're local. Elliot was our pilot and provided excellent service. The unique view inside the rim of the canyon where we stopped was our favorite. It was well worth it. Going early is recommended to beat the heat, especially in the summer.

We did the Tour with Maverick. Everything from the hotel pickup to boarding of the helicopter was highly professionell. The pilot was very experienced, motivated and entertaining. Highly recommended tour where you get a lot incl. the trip from and to the canyon- via hoover dam , time in the canyon incl. drinks and snacks and on the way back even a flight over the LV strip. We saved long hours in the car by doing this trip. One of the best experiences on our 3 weeks West coast trip.
