Seeing the Grand Canyon from the sky is probably the most popular way to experience it. Grand Canyon helicopter tours are ideal for those who want to get up close with the Grand Canyon on an exciting and memorable excursion. From the sky, you have the perfect opportunity take in breathtaking aerial views of the Canyon as well as a birds-eye view of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.
When choosing which Grand Canyon helicopter tour to do, there are two types of trip; you have the option to do a flight only tour where you just fly out to the Grand Canyon but you don’t land. The other type of tour is our recommended tour where you have the opportunity to land on the base of the Grand Canyon to enjoy a champagne picnic lunch and a stroll around.
If you are on a budget, why not visit the Grand Canyon by bus! Sit back,relax and take in amazing views on an all day bus tour. Many of the bus tours that run from Las Vegas give you the opportunity to stop at the O’Callaghan – Tillman Bridge for photo opportunities of Hoover Dam and they give you the opportunity to see some of real America.
