Way back when, getting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon was a serious commitment of time and effort: a 2-day ride on a mule, a 2-day trudge on a hot dusty trail, or an even bigger chunk out of your life for a white water raft trip! That was “then” – this is “now!” If you have half a day, the bottom of the Grand Canyon is within your reach on the Las Vegas Grand Voyager Tour. Your adventure begins with pick up from your Las Vegas hotel and transportation to our exclusive heliport at the Boulder City Municipal Airport. Then you’re up and away, over the abstract, dramatic visuals of the Mojave Desert, the colossal Hoover Dam, and the high-flying Colorado River Bridge. You’ll get the ultimate eagle-eye view of the dam, the Bypass Bridge, and Lake Mead, one of the largest reservoirs on Earth. As lake turns to river, the landscape changes as if a mighty force broke free from the confines of Earth itself – up ahead is the Grand Canyon! Your plane touches down at Grand Canyon West, a Native American Tribal Park owned by the Hualapai Indian Nation. Here, getting to the bottom of the Grand Canyon isn’t a grueling slog down a craggy cliff – a thrilling helicopter flight, and you’re there! You’ll get up close and personal with the Grand Canyon’s rocky cliffs and imposing pinnacle, before touching down at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where a pontoon boat will take you on a relaxing smooth water float to Quartermaster Point and back. After your river trip, you’ll board your helicopter and head back topside, where motor coaches stand ready to show you the rest of Grand Canyon West. Your next stop is Eagle Point, site of the Southwest’s most talked-about attraction, the Grand Canyon Skywalk!* Here you can also increase your knowledge of the Native people of the Southwest by touring replicas of their traditional homes or watching a dance performance or cultural program at the amphitheatre. A short, easy trail around the tram line and other equipment from the defunct Guano Point Mine not only offers great views of the Colorado River, but a fascinating glimpse at one of many ill-fated attempts to capitalize on the mineral resources within the Grand Canyon. A meal is included and can be enjoyed at any time during your Grand Canyon visit. Eventually, it’s time to head back to Las Vegas, and the great thing about this tour is that it’s still less than 8 hours long from hotel to hotel. Return transportation to your Las Vegas hotel takes place upon return to the Boulder City Municipal Airport. *Admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk not included in this package.
