Take off from Las Vegas on a magical sunset helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon. You'll enjoy a 45-minute helicopter flight each way, land at the Grand Canyon for a champagne picnic while you watch the changing colors of sunset, then fly low over the famous neon-lit Las Vegas Strip on your return.

Highlights

  • Recorded commentary by audio headphones
  • Scenic helicopter flight
  • Enjoy fantastic aerial views

After limousine pick-up from your Las Vegas hotel, you will be taken to board your helicopter. You will fly by Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as your helicopter flies to the West Rim. During your flight, headphones provide a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon and its surrounds. The flight between Las Vegas and Grand Canyon West Rim is approximately 45 minutes each way.

Landing on Hualapai Indian land for a champagne picnic, you can admire the ever-changing colors of the canyon walls in the glow of twilight. Your pilot/guide will be happy to answer any questions you may have about the area or your helicopter flight as you watch the sun set over the horizon.

Your Sunset Helicopter Tour concludes with a low-level flight over the west side of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Flying from the Stratosphere Hotel to New York-New York, you will have a great view over the extravagant casinos and hotels of Vegas lit up for the night. On landing your limousine will be waiting to return you to your hotel.

There is a maximum capacity of 6 people per helicopter plus your pilot.

For a roomier experience, upgrade your flight to an EC-130 helicopter which allows for more leg room and can accommodate more weight per seat. See Additional Info for more details on weight restrictions.

Please note: the listed price does not include a US $10 per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. The fuel surcharge is required by our local supplier and is not within our control.

Awesome experience and the highlight of our first trip to Vegas. We took the sunset tour with Sundance and everything was spectacular. We are still talking about it. Well worth the money. Strongly recommend.

This trip was done last minute with us because of family commitments, and booking last minute is always a worry - however, they were absolutely fantastic from start to finish it was amazing...

doing the sunset trip I can't understand why anyone would do a day trip you get the best of both worlds.

the one thing that let it down was the transport back, we landed and the car to pick us up was an hour - I just think when you pay something this expensive that it should be on time, we were stood In a car park in the middle of nowhere
