Your narrated flight departs from McCarran Int’l Airport next to the Resort Hotels. Beyond the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead the Grand Canyon awaits. All your senses will be heightened with all round views and choreographed music as you descend into the largest theatre in the world — The Grand Canyon. As you fly farther and deeper you enter the heart of the canyon and enjoy breathtaking views of the Colorado River, mile-high canyon walls and towering stone spires. Soar as if on a magic carpet below spectacular rock formations such as Eagle Rock, and Guano Point. You will be shown the canyon’s hidden secrets such as the site where mutineers on General Wesley Powell’s expedition were killed by Indians.

Your helicopter will explore the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Onboard a "Pegasus" luxury jet helicopter, you will fly 1,500 feet below the rim, soaring past towering, stone buttresses and columns bathed in an ever-changing kaleidoscope of colors. As you descend, you'll pass through millions of years of geological time.

Next, you land at the 165 square mile Grand Canyon Ranch. You are welcomed with a champagne toast at our own private helipad. In a covered wagon, you drive away through a Joshua Tree forest where you hear stories about the Cohina Indians, The Last Indian Ghost Dance and the notorious Gun Fighter Tap Duncan. A rodeo demonstration and western-style meal complete with authentic Country & Western musicians are part of your experience. Wranglers take you on a horseback or wagon bison safari to discover the icon of the Old West—the bison.* Your experience then concludes with a spectacular flight down the famous Las Vegas Strip. Round-trip hotel transfers included.

News of The World

After 45 minutes I found myself hovering over one of the seven natural wonders of the world – the immense Grand Canyon – before descending straight into it.

Flying low through the massive split in the earth and passing through the colourful, rugged canyon walls was an unforgettable experience. We landed at the Grand Canyon Ranch... which has a rich history of the Old West and is a working cattle ranch.

An Unbelievable Visit

Helicopter ride, views of the Grand Canyon, the Ranch, first ever horse ride, everything was fantastic, had to pinch ourselves to believe we were there...

Fantastic time, and a real highlight on our tour of the States. Hospitality, food, atmosphere, scenery and experience everything (and more) you'd expect.

Remarkable experience

My girlfriend and I just completed a trip to Vegas... I must say it was a remarkable experience. Our pilot, Phil, was excellent and the helicopter ride was great.

My brother and I planned a surprise trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon for our mom's 60th Birthday and it couldn't have been better. My mom had never been on a helicopter before and she absolutely loved it. Tom provided an incredible narrative during our entire flight (both ways) and ensured that our flights were safe and sound.
