Does the prospect of a helicopter ride over the most photographed section of the Grand Canyon set your heart to beating a little faster? Would you like to combine it with a full-day tour to the South Rim by way of Hoover Dam, the Mojave Desert and the Colorado River Valley? All of this can be yours aboard our Grand Canyon South Rim bus tour with Helicopter.

You will be picked up at your hotel in Las Vegas, and transported in comfort and style, with narration by your well-informed driver/guide. Experience the majesty of Hoover Dam, completed in 1936, from the spectacular viewing point of the 21st Century by-pass bridge completed in 2010, as you stop for photos before continuing on to Grand Canyon National Park.

Once you arrive at the Rim, take advantage of the opportunity to hike, explore at your own pace, shop for souvenirs or study the exhibits. Then, when the time comes to board your North Canyon Helicopter, you will be ready to soar into the sky like the birds; and you will have a bird’s-eye view of Dragon Corridor. This is when you will gain new awe and respect for the forces of nature that shaped this canyon, and still continue to carve away at its walls. Music and detailed narration will accompany you.

Once again on solid ground, you will once again board your bus, but there are still delights ahead. You will enjoy a stop at the National Geographic Visitor’s Center, where you will have lunch, before returning to Las Vegas.
