The Grand Canyon South Rim Bus Tour with Helicopter combines an exhilarating helicopter flight over the most photographed section of the Grand Canyon with a full-day tour to the South Rim by bus. You'll also get views of the Mojave Desert scenery, and the Colorado River Valley along the way. You will be picked up at your Las Vegas hotel and board a luxury motorcoach for transport to the Grand Canyon South. Sit back and relax in luxury and comfort while the desert scenery and points of interest pass you by.

Upon arrival at the South Rim you will climb aboard an awaiting helicopter for a bird’s-eye view of the canyon walls and rock formations, shaped by millions of years of wind and water erosion. After your air tour, you will again board your bus and stop at the National Geographic Visitors Center. Each guest will be given a box lunch and water to enjoy at their leisure during their Grand Canyon ground tour. This self-guided segment of the day offers you the opportunity to hike, explore at your own pace, take photos, or browse for souvenirs in the historic district near the canyon rim. Your bus will return you to your hotel in Las Vegas after a long day of exploring this incredible landmark.
