This amazing adventure begins with a scenic 60-75 minute flight to the Canyon West Airport, 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'll disembark the helicopter and board a boat for a 15-20 minute ride along the Colorado River. You'll gain a unique perspective of the beauty of this magnificent wonder as you look straight up the Canyon walls.
After your quick flight back up to the Rim, your next stop is the world famous glass Skywalk. This architectural marvel extends 65 feet over the edge of the Grand Canyon, with its 4,000 foot depth right beneath your feet. As you venture out on this amazing structure and look straight down through the glass floor, you can't help but feel like you are a part of the 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 the 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 walk along a trail that extends out into the Canyon and enjoy the spectacular views and photo opportunities.
