Why Heli USA offers so much more on their Grand Canyon tours.
Only Heli USA offers its guests this unique package -- a flight to the Grand Canyon, plus a stay at historic Grand Canyon Ranch!
A small, elite helicopter company, with a solid reputation for safety and customer service, Heli USA will take you on an unforgettable flight below the rim of the Grand Canyon! As you soar over the Colorado River, past stone buttreses and canyon walls a mile high, the sheer immensity of the Canyon is overwhelming ... no wonder it's easily seen from the Space Shuttle! (BRING YOUR CAMERA FOR BETTER CLOSE-UPS!).
Then, when other helicopter companies are taking their passengers back to Vegas, your Heli USA pilot settles down gently at Grand Canyon Ranch, where a horse drawn wagon deposits you and your fellow guests at the ranch house. While you dig into a hearty, western-style lunch or dinner (depending on your arrival), you'll be entertained by Casey Adams, whose repertoire of western songs is extensive.
Your host at the Ranch is Nigel Turner, an Englishman who owns both Heli USA and Grand Canyon Ranch. As an ex-Captain in the helicopter wing of the British Army, Nigel's reputation for discipline and attention to detail is evident in the pilots he hires, and in the genuine hospitality his Ranch exudes.
As a working cattle ranch, its 165 square miles is home to some 300 Corriente cattle, raised for the rodeo circuit, plus a herd of buffalo acquired from a ranch in Montana. Turner encourages his guests, via a Buffalo Safari, to see and photograph these magnificent animals that once numbered 35,000,000 in the Great Plains, but were nearly wiped out by hunters, "sportsmen," and the U.S. Army in the late 19th century. To restore the buffalo, or American bison, to its former glory as America's true icon is a passion with Turner.
Also available to guests are horseback rides over some of the prettiest high country in the West, with the Mormon Trail running throught it, followed by champagne at sunset. There are roping demonstrations by working cowboys, a reenactment of the famous gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and authentic western songs sung around a campfire at night, courtesy of Casey Adams.
Overnight stays in our pine cabins, with fireplaces and western memorabilia decorating each one, are a popular option for our guests. You'll never sleep better in the Western, star-lit night, breathing pure mountain air. This is the real getaway on your Vegas getaway. You'll cherish the memories for life.
