The Basics

The West Rim is an ideal day trip destination from Las Vegas, Nevada. Hike the area, visit the Western-style Hualapai Ranch for food and themed activities, or step onto the famous Grand Canyon Skywalk—a glass bridge near Guano Point that allows visitors to see the Colorado River flowing 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) beneath their feet. The West Rim is a popular destination for helicopter tours from Las Vegas, which give travelers a bird’s-eye view of the canyon and nearby attractions such as the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. For a special treat, opt for a sunset helicopter tour that includes Champagne. Bus tours from Vegas offer a different perspective and sometimes also include a visit to Joshua Tree National Park.

Grand Canyon Deluxe Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas
The experience was great, our pilot Travis was friendly and made the trip. The ‘light snacks’ are very light a few peanuts/ pretzels which was disappointing especially when I’ve done the trip pre covid and you got more.

Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam, 7 Magic Mountains Small Group Day Tour from Las Vegas
Everything was perfect! Our tour guide, Jose, was very knowledgable, he took the best photos for us, we had a couple extra stops along the way, and he made sure we were well prepped for each stop- knowing exactly what to expect and what we would need. He was hysterical throughout the trip but serious about safety concerns. Excellent driver and wonderfully prompt! I would highly recommend this tour!

Grand Canyon West Rim Bus Tour with Hoover Dam Stop, Meals and Optional Upgrades
John was our tour guide and he was the best. He was prompt with pick up. We were the first guest to board the bus which was clean spacious and comfortable. The tour time was 3 hours and just the right amount of time to see all the sites. Our family added the sky walk option which was amazing. Great experience for all of Us.

Grand Canyon Sunset Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas
The best experience from start to finish our pilot Logan was amazing. We was nervous about going in a helipcooter but there was no need felt so comfortable and recommend to anyone visiting vegas we will remember this day forever. The views was incredible the sunset was beautiful and the view of lake mead was breathtaking.

Grand Canyon Sunset Helicopter Tour from Las Vegas
Not inexpensive but very much worth the money. It is a very unique opportunity to see the canyon from above and inside if you don't have a lot of time.

History of the West Rim

Although the Hualapai Indian Reservation was created in 1883, the Grand Canyon West Rim area wasn’t developed until 1988, when 2,100 members of the Native American tribe decided to open their ancestral lands to visitors. In addition to its stunning viewpoints, the area now offers white water rafting, scenic hiking trails, and rustic lodging to travelers.
