Grand Canyon helicopter tour

Las Vegas to Grand Canyon

Many tourists view a Grand Canyon helicopter tour as the highlight of their trip to Las Vegas. The tours start off with a hotel pick-up in Las Vegas and transportation with limousine to the airport. The helicopter takes you to the Grand Canyon west rim and en route you will see attractions like the Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. After 45 minutes in the air, you land down inside the Grand Canyon and you’ll receive a champagne pic-nick. When you have eaten and all photographs are taken, the helicopter takes you back to Las Vegas where you’ll be dropped-off by the hotel.

Different tours

A Grand Canyon helicopter tour with landing takes at least about four hours in total. Some tours offer optional activities, such as a boat ride on the Colorado river or a visit to the Grand Canyon Skywalk (a transparent horseshoe-shaped bridge). There are also longer tours to choose from which include more time in the Grand Canyon, read about these helicopter tours to Grand Canyon here.

Rates and booking

The tours rates are shown in their description. Some of the tours add a fuel or administration surcharge. Book your tour choice with our booking site for the best rates. Some helicopter tours sell out early for the most popular dates, make sure to book in advance.

Sunset helicopter tour

Our favorite choice is the luxurious helicopter tour where you fly back by sunset. We did this helicopter tour the first time we were in Las Vegas and it is still our top choice. It is beautiful when the sun sets over the mountain tops in Grand Canyon. Also on the way back you get to see the Las Vegas Strip with all the hotels that light up the desert darkness. This tour also includes pick-up with limousine. See the tour to the left below.
