Description:
The tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim begin with a scenic, narrated, 75 minute flight to the Canyon West Airport, located at the west end of the Grand Canyon and just a few minutes from the world famous Skywalk. Your tour will include several attractions unique to this part of the Canyon.

The most popular of all is the world famous Skywalk. This architectural marvel extends 65 feet over the edge of the Canyon, with its 4,000 foot depth right beneath your feet. As you venture out on to this amazing structure and look straight down through the glass floor, you can't help but feel like you are a part of the Grand Canyon.

Just outside the Skywalk you will experience the Hualapai Indian Culture through Native American Performances and an Indian Village, ancient dwellings constructed in the traditional methods by local tribes.

This area of the Canyon, known as Eagle Point, due to the formation in the Canyon walls that resembles an Eagle spreading her wings, offers spectacular views of Grand Canyon.

The next stop on the tour will be Guano Point. This location offers one of the most scenic places to enjoy lunch (provided with the tour) at an outdoor eating area on a plateau surrounded on three sides by the magnificent Grand Canyon. After your lunch, enjoy a leisurely hike along a trail that extends out into the Canyon and spectacular views.

The highlight of most visitors' trip to the West Rim is the Helicopter ride to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. After a 10 minute flight to the bottom, you will disembark the helicopter and board a pontoon boat for a boat ride along the Colorado River.

You will be able to experience the Grand Canyon as you look straight up the Canyon walls, giving you a unique perspective of the beauty of this magnificent wonder. After the pontoon boat ride, you will board the helicopter for the 10 minute flight back to the top of the Grand Canyon.

This is the Grand Canyon experience of a lifetime!
