Grand Canyon West Rim Adventure and Skywalk (ADV)

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
For the adventurous at heart, a trip from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon in a Cessna airplane will provide the thrill of a lifetime. The narrated aerial tour will take you to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, home of the Hualapai Reservation. You’ll enjoy a helicopter to the bottom of the canyon, brief boat ride on the Colorado River, helicopter back to the top, ground tour to Eagle Point with admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk – an exhilarating platform over the edge of the canyon and lunch on the canyon rim, amazing views of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon. This all-inclusive adventure will leave you with unforgettable experiences and memories of America’s most iconic piece of natural beauty.
  • Enjoy round-trip flight tour of the Grand Canyon from Phoenix
  • Land on Grand Canyon’s West Rim for a guided walk to Eagle Point
  • Brave a walk onto the Grand Canyon Skywalk’s glass bridge
  • Travel to the canyon bottom by helicopter and take a boat cruise
What to Expect
Make your own way to Phoenix Deer Valley Airport (or upgrade for hotel pickup). Your trip begins with a flight in a Cessna where every passenger has a window seat and unobstructed views. Use your headset to hear narration from your pilot while soaking in the landscape below. Touch down at Grand Canyon’s West Rim, and travel on land to Eagle Point to the Hualapai Reservation and take part in a performance. Next, take a walk on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a see-through glass platform hovering over a sheer rock cliff. After lunch at the edge of the Grand Canyon on Guano Point, enjoy free time to explore on your own. You then hop into a helicopter to ride to the bottom of the canyon and take a boat for a cruise down the Colorado River. The helicopter returns you to the rim where you reconnect with your pilot for the flight back to Phoenix.

Money well spent. Wyatt was our pilot and he could not have done a better job of communicating, engaging and keeping us safe. A once in a lifetime bucket list trip worth every penny.

Loved every minute of this tour. Very friendly staff. Lunch was a hot meal of fair value but who cares. The rest of the tour was awesome!
