DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION:
The Grand Canyon has an allure that draws thousands to see its grandeur each and every year. Many however will never get off the beaten track to really experience the breathtaking heights, the thrill of flying inside the canyon walls, and the feel of the spray from the mighty Colorado River. If you dare to be different, a Platinum West Rim Tour with Heli, Boat, and Skywalk is just what you need for that once-in-a-lifetime Grand Canyon experience.
Your day will start with a departure from your Las Vegas hotel aboard a luxurious 12-passenger touring vehicle. As you are transported toward the West Rim of the Grand Canyon you will be treated to spectacular views of the Hoover Dam and from atop the Hoover Dam Bridge. Not far ahead, the magnificent 900-year-old Joshua Tree Forest will begin to surround your vehicle on either side. Soon you will arrive at Grand Canyon West, where the most fantastic sights await.
Start your Grand Canyon exploration with an exhilarating air tour down to the canyon floor! This helicopter ride carries you 4,000 feet to the bottom where a pontoon boat awaits to cruise passengers up and down the mighty Colorado River. The helicopter will then return you to the rim of the canyon.
Back at the top, a motorcoach will transport you several stops along the rim. A visit to the recreated Western town of Hualapai Ranch allows you to step back in time and enjoy cowboy entertainment. A stop at Eagle Point will allow views of the eagle-like rock formation from the Skywalk Glass Bridge - extending more than 4,000 feet above the canyon floor. Guano Point also offers incredible vistas that allow visitors to capture the beauty and depth the canyon. Choose any one of these stops to enjoy your meal.
As the completion of your tour nears, you will once again have an opportunity to relax and view the scenic beauty along the way as you are carried back to your Las Vegas hotel.
