Start your small-group Grand Canyon trip in the morning with a pickup from your hotel in Las Vegas. Relax into your luxurious limousine and travel to the airport.

After a safety briefing, settle into your sleek helicopter and fly to the Grand Canyon. En route, gaze at landmarks such as the Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees, the Hoover Dam, the Black Mountains, and Lake Mead.

Learn about the sights and how the Grand Canyon was formed from the audio commentary, and take in the incredible views of the West Rim.

After around 45 minutes, touch down and refuel with a snack. Then, walk to the front of the entrance lines for the Skywalk; the semi-circular, glass walkway suspended 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) above the canyon floor.

Step onto the glass and stride 70 feet (21 meters) out from the edge of the canyon. Gaze at the Colorado River below and experience heart-pounding views of the canyon snaking into the distance.

Walk back to the canyon edge and receive a souvenir photo of your Skywalk experience. Rejoin your helicopter and soar over the Las Vegas Strip on your return flight. Your 5.5-hour tour finishes with limousine drop-off at your hotel.

Who Dropped the Ball?

I got one confirmation message from Viator but then you turkeys never replied to my messages asking WHEN we were to be picked up! I assumed that if there were no return messages, then 10 AM must be the time. We were therefore caught by surprise. No time for breakfast, shower, makeup etc... Trip was off to a bad start with hungry people. I would recommend this tour by Papillon but with the warning to NOT EVER book through Viator.... Too sloppy for such a big price tag.

Great experience. Pickup was on time. All staff on ground were nice and helpful. In fact when we got back our ride back was not available and we had to wait at least a .5 hour before they showed up. To make up for the time lost the staff gave us a free picture that we normally would have had to pay for. The pilot was great. He was able to answer any question I had. Every informative on his own. Flight had no issues. The personnel at the Skywalk were also very nice. Each photographer took an individual or group if traveling together and took the time to take lots of pictures, posing us in fun ways. When the session was over we were able to choose the picture we wanted. With this tour I got a free 8x10. With the person at the counter helping we were able to narrow it down. But I couldn't quite get it down to only 1. I ended up purchasing the whole set. They give you a thumbdrive with all the pictures. Surprise...when I got home and was looking through it I found a bunch of extra pictures that had been taken by professionals. I never would have gotten those if I had not purchased the thumbdrive. So glad I did. The trip back was uneventful, which you want when you are flying. Pilot provided more narrative on the grounds below and the scenery. I travel alone and was not disappointed with the attention give. I have found at times couples get more attention than single travelers.
