Combine a Grand Canyon helicopter flight with a river float down the Colorado River for an incredible and exciting day tour from Las Vegas! Start your day with a scenic 60-minute helicopter flight over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon's West Rim before enjoying a relaxing river float down the Colorado River and through the Black Canyon with your informative guide.

After hotel pickup, board your state-of-the-art helicopter for a 60-minute scenic air tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim. Your flight will take off in Boulder City, where builders of the Hoover Dam (formally the Boulder Dam) lived during the dam’s construction in the 1930s. Enjoy panoramic, 180-degree views of the impressive Hoover Dam, the bypass bridge and Black Canyon, and fly past the extinct and colorful volcano, Fortification Hill.

Then descend into the depths of the Grand Canyon as you fly over the mighty Colorado River, past million-year-old geological rock formations. Make sure to have your camera ready, as around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and pillars with amazing natural vivid colors. After leaving the Grand Canyon, enjoy views of other natural wonders in the wilderness of the rugged Mojave Desert.

Upon landing in Boulder City, take a short drive down to the Colorado River launch area for your river float at the base of the Hoover Dam and the newly constructed bypass bridge. Here you'll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will help you board your comfortable river raft. Float down the river and through the Black Canyon, with high walls that will leave you breathless! Keep your eyes open for desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting.

The raft stops at a secluded beach on the river so you can cool off in the refreshing clear waters. You can also enjoy your picnic box lunch on the beach while taking in the sights and sounds of Black Canyon.

Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. You'll have the chance to shop for souvenirs before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.

Ben and I had a wonderful experience! We highly recommend this package.

The day started off bright and early with a pick-up from our hotel. Our driver was super friendly and provided tons of recommendations for activities in Las Vegas. We went on our float ride first. It was approximately 3 hours starting at Hoover Dam, riding down the Colorado River through the Black Canyons. It was hot and sunny but the water was cool, clean, and refreshing. Our guide, Kathleen, was very knowledgeable about the Hoover Dam and the Colorado River.

After the ride, we returned to the office where the helicopter flight takes off. We had about a 45-minute wait before our flight was scheduled to begin. The receptionist was super nice. She gave us cool drinks and offered us to watch Netflix while we wait. Our flight took off on time. Our pilot, Phil, was knowledgeable about the Canyon and did his best to make the ride as comfortable as possible (I had a bit of motion sickness).

Overall, we had a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this package to anyone who wants to see the canyons on the ground and up in the air. If you're interested in only seeing the Grand Canyon, I have heard amazing reviews of the helicopter flight that drops passengers off for 2 hours at the top.
