2. Exclusive: Grand Canyon a Skywalk Express Tour with Limo.

There is no better way to see the Grand Canyon than through the windows of a state of the art helicopter. These VIP tours are not completely private, but the magnificent views and stellar treatment provide guests with an unforgettable experience and memories that will last a lifetime.
It’s good to remember that the trip starts with a weigh-in and seating is arranged according to even distribution of the passenger load, so it’s not possible to book a certain seat in advance. These small tours are guided by a genial and knowledgeable pilot who is willing and able to point out the sights, answer questions, and provide insight into this amazing natural wonder, as well as the scenic points along the voyage.
Your five-hour tour of one of the seven natural wonders of the world begins with a pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and a quick drive to the airport. Then you’ll soar over the engineering marvel that is Hoover Dam, and gaze down at the aqua waters and sandstone shores of Lake Mead. After 35 minutes of breathtaking views and knowledgeable commentary by your pilot, you’ll touch down at a private landing spot just under the West Rim of the Grand Canyon.
Sip mimosas in the early morning, gazing at the canyon while relishing a gourmet breakfast at a table set with fine linens, silverware, china, and flowers. Choose from a fluffy egg and sausage casserole, a breakfast baked potato topped with a fried egg, or perhaps Greek yogurt and fruit with a side of steel-cut oatmeal. Plan your trip as early as you can to enjoy the crisp morning hours and the changing colors of the canyon as the sun progresses upward.
The trip back provides more panoramic views of the Mojave Desert, and you’ll be returned to your hotel before the Vegas heat sets in. Hotel drop off and pickup times are included in the five-hour total trip.
The breakfast trip accommodates six guests, and specific seats cannot be requested, as the pilot will assign seats according to weight distribution.
This tour begins with a Sin City hotel pickup and a short drive to Henderson Executive Airport, where you’ll board a luxury helicopter for the flight to the Grand Canyon West Rim. You’ll have 3 ½ hours to explore the sights on your own, and lunch at any number of scenic points is included in the fare. Upgrade your ticket to include the Skywalk, a glass walkway 4,000 feet above the canyon floor that provides dizzying views from Eagle Point.
Other optional upgrades include cowboy activities such as a wagon ride or horseback riding and entertainment on the Hualapai Ranch. You might catch a roping demonstration if the cowboys are inclined. For an extra fee, you can take a special swoop down into the base of the canyon, which will make you feel like Luke Skywalker. The view from the bottom makes it clear just how big the canyon is. Another option is a short helicopter ride to a bluff that overlooks the mighty Colorado River.
The trip back offers additional time to enjoy the pilot’s guided tour of the mighty Colorado River, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. The maximum capacity for this trip is seven guests. The total trip, including lunch and hotel pickup and drop off are included.
You’ll be picked up in Vegas by a luxury Mercedes van and whisked away for a five-hour tour that includes flying over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam and an informative commentary by your pilot. Large windows provide a breathtaking view, and radio headsets allow for communication with one another and the pilot. After a half-hour scenic tour, you’ll touch down on the Grand Canyon West Rim, on a Native American site belonging to the Hualapai Nation.
There you’ll be treated to an amazing and elegant full-course gourmet meal, complete with fine china, silverware, linen tablecloths, flower arrangements, and Champagne. It’s all perfectly timed so guests can enjoy the dramatic sunset while dining on such delights as beef Bourguignon, chicken Cordon Bleu or vegetarian lasagna, and sipping on bubbly.
The chopper holds a maximum of six people, so unless you book all the seats, you’ll have company on your trip. After the sun has set, you’ll board the chopper and head back to your hotel, where you’ll still have plenty of time to slip into your fancy duds and head out for an evening on the town. The tour duration time includes the hotel pickup and drop off.
