South Rim Bus Tour with Helicopter
A fully-inclusive, all-day tour to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon will get you away from the manmade wonders of Las Vegas to the majestic wonder of nature in a way you can never forget.
Following pick-up at your hotel, you will board a modern air-conditioned bus for the trip to Grand Canyon South Rim. Discover the changing scenery as your bus travels along through the Colorado River Valley and the Mojave Desert toward Arizona.
The South Rim is spectacular – you can hike for a distance along its edge, photograph the winding river below, marvel at the geology or study the history of the area while visiting Bright Angel Lodge. Before experiencing the Grand Canyon by ground climb into your helicopter for what will be the highlight of the day! Flying over Dragon Corridor, you will be awed by the views and energized by the experience. It is a fitting match for the power of the natural forces that shaped the scene below you. A premium box lunch will be provided after the flight as you continue on your Grand Canyon experience.
