Return Details

This sightseeing tour to the Grand Canyon begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Then enjoy the drive east before arriving at the Boulder City Municipal Airport to begin your sightseeing flight. This economical Grand Canyon aerial tour packs a lot into a short amount of time.

Start with a pilot meet and greet, then climb aboard and buckle up in the fixed-wing Vistaliner plane, featuring panoramic windows for the ultimate aerial adventure.

Begin by flying over the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States, and its place of origin, the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering on the border between Nevada and Arizona. Fly high above the Grand Canyon and Colorado River, passing over West Rim attractions like Guano Point, Eagle Point, and the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the canyon floor.

The tour ends with a return flight to Boulder City and a hotel drop-off in Las Vegas.

Cancelled, 1 hour before I was due to be at the location. Wasted my day waiting for them to call me, so I called them. I could have planned something else to do for the day.

The scenery was astounding and the narration was informative. There was a mix up with our booking that Viator sorted out immediately we told them. Their site said the plane would be smaller than we had. Seemed some confusion between the companies - overall a very good flight-seeing

Took this trip on the recommendation of a friend. Very glad we did, was an amazing experience. Have seen the canyon from the ground, which was of course amazing, but from the air was unreal. Highly recommend. The staff with the tour group were great. Nothing at all negative could be said about this trip.
