Tour description provided by Viator

Travel back to the Wild West on a visit to the exclusive Grand Canyon Ranch! On this day trip from Las Vegas, travel by luxury coach or minivan over the Hoover Dam Bypass to the Grand Canyon Ranch. Enjoy real cowboy entertainment and take to the skies for a low-level helicopter tour through the magnificent Grand Canyon!

After pickup from your Las Vegas hotel, head east toward the Hoover Dam. After a brief photo stop at this engineering marvel, continue on your scenic journey through sage brush and grass valleys to the Grand Canyon Ranch.

This exclusive 165-square-mile (265.5-square-km) ranch is filled with rich American history. Sitting on land that was once a part of the Mormon Trail, the ranch was settled by Wellington Starkey in the 1800s. Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon Ranch, you will be met by friendly local cowboys, ready to ensure your experience of a lifetime. Hear stories of real outlaws from the Old West who hid at the ranch and visit Starkey's small one-room house that is still situated there. Discover the ranch’s Native American history, dating back 3,600 years, and learn how the ranch has been passed down through generations. Once, it was sold to Tap Duncan, who rode with the infamous Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The ranch has also been used in various Buster Keaton films.

After getting acquainted with the ranch, take to the skies for a helicopter tour through the mighty Grand Canyon! On your 20-minute helicopter flight, descend deep into the heart of the canyon. Fly over the Colorado River, pass mile-high Canyon walls and towering stone spires, and view spectacular rock formations such as Eagle Rock, the location of the world-famous Skywalk.

Once you land back at the private helipad, return to the ranch house to enjoy lunch, entertainment and ranching activities, including a rodeo show. You may also take an optional buffalo safari either by wagon or horseback (additional fees apply).

Return to the shining lights of Las Vegas in the early evening in time to catch a show, enjoy dinner or just reflect on your trip back in time to the Wild West!
