The pilot points out landmarks on the ground below and gives some background on the things you see, before banking the helicopter into the Grand Canyon itself. You fly past rock formations in vivid colors, pass alongside cathedral buttresses and pillars, and then steer right over the Colorado River. Touch down at the Grand Canyon West Airport to visit the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop, stocked with Grand Canyon souvenirs, jewelry, and old West-style mementos. Take to the air for the return trip to Las Vegas, where a driver will greet you for transfer to your hotel.
