Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

Helicopter Tour of the Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas Strip

Our family has always wanted to see the Grand Canyon, but never wanted to make the drive. We finally decided on taking a Grand Canyon helicopter tour from Las Vegas. This picture gallery highlights the beautiful sights our family saw on our helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, Colorado River, Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas Strip. The helicopter tour package we chose included a landing and a picnic lunch 4,000 feet below the canyon rim on a private plateau.
