Description:
This full day experience gives you more than just the normal. Fly, descend, and land in the Grand Canyon, before taking a fantastic 11-mile river raft tour along the Colorado River through the Black Canyon.

Enjoy a narrated flight from Las Vegas to the floor of the Canyon in complete luxury. Take in great views of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and Boulder City, and then step back in time as you descend 4,000 feet into the depths of the Canyon itself.

Before landing, take in the awe-inspiring rock formations, dating back millions of years, of this natural wonder of the world. Then sit back and enjoy a light breakfast served under an authentic Indian Ramada.

Next, from the base of the Hoover Dam, you'll hop aboard a motorized raft and float along the Colorado and follow the path that carved the Black Canyon so many years ago. Enjoy lunch served on a private river beach where you can also partake in optional swimming.

"Helicopter tour - Had mechanical issues with heli- took off an hour after scheduled. Ken, the pilot, was very accommodating about this. Staff at customer service counter at Boulder City airport uncoordinated in terms of how this impacted our river tour following the helicopter ride."
