Take an afternoon away from your Las Vegas vacation for a fantastic airplane tour over the Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Grand Canyon. Start with shuttle service from your Las Vegas hotel and transport to the Boulder City Municipal Airport. After boarding your deHavilland Twin Otter airplane, you’re up and away over spectacular aerial sights. Beneath your plane window, the Hoover Dam still stands as a monumental achievement in engineering even by 21st century standards. Behind the Hoover Dam, the deep blue waters of Lake Mead stretch placidly eastward. Up ahead is the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, formally known as Grand Canyon West. This area of the canyon has been occupied by the Hualapai Indian Tribe for over 1,000 years. Here you’ll see a side of the Grand Canyon with fewer boundaries and fantastic viewpoints. After about 70 minutes in the air, it’s time to return to Boulder City, where your shuttle waits to take you back to your hotel.
