A daytime flyover of The Strip is included in some of the Grand Canyon helicopter tours that head to the West Rim. This is a popular tour combo, but you can also just fly right to the canyon instead. The flight path from Las Vegas takes you over the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Grand Cliffs Wash, and Fortification Hill on the way to the Grand Canyon. The Grand Canyon helicopter tours even come with an option to land at the canyon to enjoy the area by ground. Two of these landing tours are especially popular; one flies to the bottom of the canyon where you enjoy a champagne picnic, and the other comes with a raft tour along the scenic Colorado River that takes you to Black Canyon.
All helicopter tours that take off from the city of Las Vegas go to Grand Canyon West, or the West Rim since it is just 120 miles away. You can take a helicopter tour of the South Rim too, but you'll have to get to the rim by airplane, motor coach, or car first. Then you can transfer to a helicopter for a scenic rim-to-rim aerial tour of the South Rim region.

Your air tour will be completely safe since each pilot is very skilled, qualified, and certified by the FAA to fly to provide commercial tours.
Different things affect the price of your helicopter tour such as the number of seats you book, the type of aircraft you fly on, whether you book a tour with an overnight stay at the ranch, and if you book a landing tour or an air-only tour. All of these tours are popular and they can sell out, so you want to book your tour in advance.

You could save up to 30 percent off the price of the tour when you book online, and that adds up when you're buying tickets for an entire family or group.
