Grand Canyon West Rim Combo: Luxury SUV, Helicopter and Boat

129 Reviews

  • Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
  • Duration: 8 hours (approx.)
  • Tour code: 3533COMBO

Go for the combo: Travel to the Grand Canyon West Rim from Las Vegas by luxury Tour Trekker, fly in a helicopter to the bottom of the Canyon, cruise down the Colorado River, then spend time at the West Rim. It's one of the best ways to experience the Grand Canyon, as traveling by SUV ensures tour group numbers will be small and you'll enjoy a more personalized visit.


Highlights

  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water
  • Scenic helicopter flight
  • Lunch included

On your SUV/helicopter combo day trip you'll also visit Boulder City and travel over the new Hoover Dam bypass bridge. As you travel along Diamond Bar Road (Indian Hwy), you'll experience the beauty of the Joshua Tree Forest framed by the towering Grand Wash Cliffs as you approach the West Rim. The drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is approximately 2.5 hours each way.

On the crest of the Grand Canyon, your helicopter awaits you for your seven-minute, 4,000-foot (1,200-meter) descent to the mighty Colorado River below. You'll then board a pontoon boat for a commentated boat ride down the Colorado River which lasts around 15 minutes.

Back at the top of the canyon once again, you will have approximately 3.5 hours to explore, using the complimentary shuttle service to Eagle Point, Guano Point and Hualapai Ranch.

  • Visit Guano Point for fantastic views of the Colorado River
  • Explore the Indian Village at Eagle Point to gain insights into Native American culture
  • Take an optional stroll on the Grand Canyon Skywalk (not included, approximately US$30), the newest attraction on the West Rim, for amazingly unobstructed views over the canyon

Grand Canyon Skywalk

Here are some suggestions on what to take along to make your Skywalk experience truly memorable:
  • A little patience! And maybe your iPod...waits in line of about 30 minutes are common
  • Sunscreen and a hat. There is shade at the Skywalk, however elsewhere there is very little shade, and the sun can really burn out there
  • Comfortable shoes and light clothing. Spring and summer are hot in the desert
  • You cannot take your camera or any personal effects on the Skywalk. Be prepared to store your belongings in the lockers at the Skywalk.

This tour was amazing. Collected from hotel, once we were there we did the helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon and had a short boat ride at the bottom. It was so hot at the bottom of the canyon. Once up used the Canyon shuttle to go to Eagle Point and a few other places.

We were a little apprehensive before going, was the vehicle going to be comfortable? was it really only a 2.5 drive to the canyon? Was the guide knowledgeable? Was it worth the expense? Yes to all! It was such an amazing day. Our guide was Andy and he was great. It was a very memorable day for our entire group, which included 4 teenagers. Would definitely recommend to all.
