What To Expect

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.

The most amazing view and landing in the canyon was fantastic! Booked through the aviator app with maverick helicopters. Matt was an excellent pilot and very knowledgeable. Booked for 8am but this meant picked up at hotel at 7am. Early start but still had the rest of the day. Absolutely recommend this trip Memories forever!

Irina_J, Mar 2023
A must-to- do while in Las Vegas! Very professional and organized tour - from the initial communication to timely hotel pick up/drop off to professionalism and friendliness of the pilot - it was done very well. The adventure itself is an unforgettable experience. Flying over the Hoover dam and lake Meade, landing in the Grand Canyon and seeing Las Vegas from the air - it was an incredible start to my day.
Worth it!!

First time in helicopter, exciting adventure and experience. Fantastic pilot and guide, views were spectacular, felt safe and secure. Enjoyed setting down to absorb the vastness of the Grand Canyon with a glass of bubbly. Care and attention to detail made this an outstanding well organised trip.

My first time being in a helicopter and wow what a great experience. These guys are great, a little bumpy at times, but it was to be expected. A must if you come to Vegas and see everything from way up high.
