DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION:
Words and pictures do the Grand Canyon little justice. The magnitude of this gorge is simply found nowhere else on this planet. Visitors to Las Vegas can take the Platinum West Rim with Helicopter and Boat tour to get the most unique available perspective of the Grand Canyon's West Rim. Customers will be picked up from their hotels by a customized touring vehicle specially-designed for photography and sightseeing. Passengers will also have access to multilingual headset narration throughout the duration of the journey. First you'll see and photograph the legendary Hoover Dam before passing through the Mojave Desert and through the Joshua tree forest.
After arriving at the Grand Canyon passengers take a helicopter ride 4,000 feet down to the floor of the canyon. This perspective is one few people will ever see for themselves. A pontoon boat will then float the customers up and down the Colorado River on a quick cruise between the canyon walls. The views continue when the customers return to the rim of the canyon for a shuttle ride to multiple stops.
Each stop offers a unique adventure. A nearby Old Western town offers cowboy-style entertainment and activities. Eagle Point is home to world-famous Skywalk glass bridge that rests across from a massive eagle-like rock formation. Guano Point features a 360-degree view of the canyon walls and is a fantastic option for photography. Customers can enjoy a meal at any of these scenic locations. Transfer back to Las Vegas in comfort onboard your specialty touring vehicle.
