from Grand Celebration Tour
The Grand Celebration Helicopter Tour is our most in-demand tour from Las Vegas. The route of flight will take you over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, extinct volcanoes, the Colorado River, and the scenic beauty of the Mojave Desert.

As you fly over the West Rim on the Hualapai Reservation, your helicopter will begin a 4,000-foot descent to the canyon floor. Take in the magnificent views of the massive walls and rock formations as you descend to the bottom. As you climb out of the helicopter, you’ll see the rushing Colorado River as it continues to carve the Grand Canyon like it has for over a billion years.

You will have ample time to explore the canyon floor and enjoy a light meal and a glass of celebratory champagne. Lunch is served under a “Ramada," a traditional Hualapai shelter offering shade and a picnic table.

We did the Grand Canyon tour and the short flyover the Vegas strip at dusk. Both were well worth it and the whole process was slick and welcoming. We had a great time.

My daughter is a ten year oild magician and came to Las Vegas for an international magic convention where she was auditioning for a national show. She did her part and killed it so on our last day I wanted her to get to experience a helicopter ride and see the Grand Canyon. The team there (especially Ali and Jennifer) were amazing. The price is right and my daughter found herself in the co-pilot seat with a great view of everything. Our pilot Jeff was experienced, knew his safety procedures backwards and forwards, and was a great aerial tour guide from the Strip east to Hoover Dam and then to the Canyon. Along the way he helped us spot lots of things you would not otherwise see and explain why some cities cropped up where they were. It should not matter, but if helicopter color matters to you they have both the red version in their fleet and a yellow color - it's like pineapple mango sorbet looking color. No matter, you will have fun and it is a great experience for those who have not flown in a helicopter before.

The limo transfer was a little late, however our Pilot Josh was amazing, as were the views, commentary and experience of seeing the strip as it came to glowing life as the sun set behind the mountains. Well worth the price tag.

We took the Grand Celebration tour with strip flyover. Pre departure (limo transfer), aircraft, pilot, and weather were perfect. Great weather, a nice lunch and lots of photos which still do not do the landmark justice. Truly a great tour which is costly BUT well worth it.... and we are sure glad we did it!!
