What to Expect
Meet a driver at select Las Vegas hotels, and then transfer to a plane that’s equipped for a comfortable trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Soar over Nevada and Arizona’s vast desert wilderness and touch down for a ground tour into Grand Canyon National Park. Pause for a gourmet boxed lunch at Bright Angel Lodge, check out some of the National Park’s overlooks and walking trails, and browse the shops around El Tovar Lodge. If you've selected the helicopter flight, lift off again to see the Tower of Ra, Dragon Corridor, and Kaibab National Forest, with the Colorado River far below. Get an entirely different perspective on the desert terrain on the return flight to Las Vegas. The day ends with transfer to your original departure point.

100% fantastic tour from start to finish. Traci and Tammy were both very professional answering questions and taking my reservation, offering me their phone number for questions including anything I thought of last minute. They took our weight to balance the plane no doubt.
