Why You Shouldn’t Miss This

At 18 miles wide, 1 mile deep and 277 miles long, the impressive rock layers paint a cascade of colors. While a hike at the canyon’s rim offers incredible views, nothing compares to an air tour. The West Rim is the only section of the Grand Canyon where you can land at the bottom via helicopter, making it the only rim where the canyon floor can be visited as part of a day trip from Las Vegas. An exhilarating 4,000 ft descent, reaching the bottom is an experience like no other.

Wonderful job. Fro the pick up at the hotel to the drive to the canyon, the flight and the landing as well. Everything went super fine and will surely recommend this to all.
It was a wonderful flight to the bottom of the grand canyon. I have been to the rim before and this was my first time going down. It was simply breathtaking and a sight unlike anything else.
