Expert Review

Full review: For our money, we like tours that start at McCarran International airport, because that means less time on the road and more in the air. The 45 minute flight out to the Grand Canyon in an Airbus helicopter is how we like to do it. Plus, skipping the line at the Skywalk completes the VIP experience.

Sights you'll see on this tour

What is this?
  1. Grand Canyon Skywalk (Eagle Point)
    Soaring in a state-of-the-art helicopter is one thing, but standing on a cantilevered bridge above the canyon is an entirely different way to get close to the canyon. Some tours land nearby for a trip to the Skywalk. For an added bonus, look for tours that let you skip the line at this popular attraction. Note that cameras and phones are not allowed on the Skywalk, though you are allowed to store them safely before heading out on the five layered glass deck.

    Amazing experience riding in a helicopter to the grand canyon! Was on my bucket list and I'm so glad Viator helped me in making this trip one to remember! Would highly recommend!!

    This was an amazing trip! Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed every part of it! The pilot was kind and very enthusiastic! The Sky Walk bridge was beyond our wildest dreams. The views, from the very comfortable helicopter, were out of this world. My husband and two sons are all about 6'4 and the helicopter was very roomy. I worried about being squished, hot, and motion sick, but I experienced none of these conditions. I would do this again in a heart beat! The only thing I would change is the amount of time you spend at Sky walk. I would have liked to be there another 15-20 minutes.

    We were picked up from the designated hotel by stretch limo and taken on a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon and surrounding area. And then after landing taken to the Skywalk. There was no waiting and it was an amazing experience.
    We were treated extremely well by the Limo driver and the staff at the Helicopter centre.
    Thank you Viator for the booking.

    Very very fun...definitely go EARLY in the day as there are less people on the skywalk at that time and you have the place to yourself. Did NOT like the fact that you cannot take your own camera or phone out on the skywalk...thus allowing THEM to sell you pics. However, the pics they take are REALLY good and I bought them! LOL

    What an experience. This was our first time on a helicopter and enjoyed every second. Our pilot was very informative on the landscape as we flew to and from the Skywalk. Absolutely breathtaking/beautiful scenery! When we arrived at the Skywalk, we were escorted by our own personal guide to provide history of the Skywalk and the Indian heritage. It was fascinating. This was a trip on bucket list and it did not disappoint.

    Great tour, highly recommend! Amazing views, great staff! Only complaint was pick up was 20 minutes late, with no phone call and we waited 20 minutes after the tour to get a ride back to our hotel. Otherwise, top notch service.

    Great trip

  • William B - Reviewed on 2017-03-02

    This is a must do trip if your visiting Vegas for a few days. From being picked up at our Hotel by Limo to the jaw dropping views of Boulder City, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead the Canyon and then walking on the Skywalk it was the highlight of our holiday.

    It might seem a little expensive at first but its not every day you see one of the 7 wonders of the world!!!
