This day trip features a motorcoach ride from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon West - but this isn't just a ground tour. Once you arrive at the West Rim, a helicopter will be waiting to fly you to the very bottom of the canyon. From there, you'll sightsee from the bottom-up on a boat ride between the canyon walls.
Departure: Las Vegas
Destination: Grand Canyon West
Transportation: Bus | Helicopter | Pontoon Boat

The West Rim Grand Canyon Tour with Helicopter and Boat is a fantastic way to experience the Grand Canyon by air, water, and ground. This package includes a roundtrip modern motorcoach ride from your Las Vegas hotel.
The ground tour offers live Indian dance performances and cultural presentations, mock gunfights, historical exhibits and replica Indian dwellings, as well as a market. The highlights of the trip are sure to be the exhilarating helicopter ride to and from the canyon floor, and the relaxing pontoon boat float trip along a section of smooth Colorado River water with the canyon walls rising above you on either side. You will spend a total of about four hours on both the rim and the canyon floor with time for lunch at your choice of location: the Skywalk Café, the Cowboy Ranch, or the Guano Point BBQ. The price of lunch, all transfers and admission fees are included in the tour package.
A bonus during the trip is the photo stop at Hoover Dam, where you will see the historic Art Deco construction from the vantage point of the newly-completed highway bypass bridge over the river. It allows for impressive shots of the entire area from the dam to Lake Mead to the Colorado River. Return to your Las Vegas hotel after a full day of sightseeing.
Please note that the Hoover Dam stop can be before or after the Grand Canyon experience.
