The Basics

The West Rim is an ideal day trip destination from Las Vegas, Nevada. Hike the area, visit the Western-style Hualapai Ranch for food and themed activities, or step onto the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk—a glass bridge near Guano Point that allows visitors to see the Colorado River flowing 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) beneath their feet. The West Rim is a popular destination for helicopter tours from Las Vegas, which give travelers a bird’s-eye view of the canyon and nearby attractions such as the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. For a special treat, opt for a sunset helicopter tour that includes Champagne. Bus tours from Vegas offer a different perspective and sometimes also include a visit to Joshua Tree National Park.

Beyond Expectations- Beyond Five Stars
From pick up to drop off this tour was A+. Everything went as planned, was on time (even early!) and professional. The lobby is great with lots of space, free lockers and clean restrooms. Our pilot was fantastic - and a comedian. Knows the sea well. Ninety minutes in a helicopter and we saw it all. Better than expected. Seems expensive until you go, then realize it was all a good value. Nothing was second rate - everything was first class.

Grand Canyon Deluxe Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas
The experience was great, our pilot Travis was friendly and made the trip. The ‘light snacks’ are very light a few peanuts/ pretzels which was disappointing especially when I’ve done the trip pre covid and you got more.

Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, 7 Magic Mountains Small Group VIP Tour
Everything was perfect! Our tour guide, Jose, was very knowledgable, he took the best photos for us, we had a couple extra stops along the way, and he made sure we were well prepped for each stop- knowing exactly what to expect and what we would need. He was hysterical throughout the trip but serious about safety concerns. Excellent driver and wonderfully prompt! I would highly recommend this tour!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour & Hoover Dam Photo Stop with Optional Skywalk
We had a great time! Bus was clean and the tour guide was funny. The Grand Canyon was breath taking especially on the sky walk. Just wish we were able to stop on the Hoover Dam to actually see the dam. I'm glad the weather wasn't too hot to enjoy the views. Would do the tour again!

History of the West Rim

Although the Hualapai Indian Reservation was created in 1883, the Grand Canyon West Rim area wasn’t developed until 1988, when 2,100 members of the Native American tribe decided to open their ancestral lands to visitors. In addition to its stunning viewpoints, the area now offers white water rafting, scenic hiking trails, and rustic lodging to travelers.
