What to Expect
Begin your Grand Canyon helicopter tour with pickup from select Las Vegas hotels in a luxury van. Transfer to Henderson Executive Airport, where you and a small group of no more than seven people board a state-of-the-art EC-130 helicopter. Enjoy the air-conditioned interior and wraparound windows for optimum viewing as you listen to recorded commentary about the sights ahead. Follow the winding path of the Colorado River to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. As the pilot flies low between the red rock walls, snap pictures of the topography formed by millions of years of erosion. On the return flight, soar low over Black Canyon and see Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano. Your knowledgeable pilot can answer any questions you may have about the views. After you land, your van returns you to the hotel where your tour began.

We understand your frustration with the seating issue you experienced. Unfortunately the third party vendor you purchased through did not indicate to us that there were any special seating requests at the time of booking. Our staff did their best to accommodate your requests the night before when you called to confirm, but it just wasn't possible. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us and are sorry to hear that your experience was not on par with your expectations.
