Mustang will pick you up at no charge (so long as your Las Vegas hotel is within five miles of the Strip), but be sure you’re ready to go before 6:30am! After a quick drive to Mustang’s conveniently located terminal, you’ll depart for your one-of-a-kind journey in a state-of-the-art ECO-Star helicopter (consistently rated best on the market in terms of visibility and comfort for touring, as well as noise reduction and efficiency!). Your brilliant, friendly, and expertly-trained pilot/guide will provide personal narration as you soar over Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, Fortification Hill (an extinct volcano)—and, finally, Grand Canyon West itself. Descend 3,500 feet to Mustang’s landing area just 300 feet above the Colorado River and enjoy champagne (plus other beverages) and light snacks. On your return trip, you’ll also fly through the Black Canyon before returning to your Las Vegas hotel—and again, you’ll have done all that well before lunchtime!
Grand Canyon landing: experience a truly breathtaking descent 3,500 feet down into the heart of the Grand Canyon onto Hualapai Nation lands! Mustang has a personal landing area just 300 feet above the Colorado River, where you can not only explore and take phenomenal photographs, but also enjoy some morning champagne and snacks!
Is This the Tour for You?
As always, it’s recommended that passengers afraid of heights or flying rethink a helicopter tour—though Mustang’s pilots are safety-certified at the very highest levels, and past passengers have felt not only safe but pleased with their decision to fly! In addition, this is not the tour for you if you’re not an early riser! (Note, though, that Mustang offers similar tours—for a higher price—later in the day.) Finally, you might want to consider a tour with more ground-time or add-ons if spending time in the Canyon is important to you, as the 30 minutes goes by incredibly quickly. Otherwise, this tour is perfect for the Vegas visitor who wants to get away and bask in the Grand Canyon’s awe-inspiring beauty before returning to the day’s standard itinerary!
