Tour description provided by Viator

Take a helicopter tour from Las Vegas and visit the exclusive Grand Canyon Ranch for a taste of the Wild West! Fly below the rim of the Grand Canyon and take in incredible views of this natural wonder before arriving at the historic Grand Canyon Ranch. Feel like a real cowboy as you take an optional buffalo safari and explore the wilderness by horse-drawn carriage or horseback. Learn about the history of the ranch and enjoy a Western-style meal and entertainment for a true Old West experience!

After pickup from your Las Vegas hotel, head to the McCarran Airport, just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, for a scenic helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon Ranch! Onboard a luxury jet helicopter, take in views of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead before exploring the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Fly 1,500 feet (457 meters) below the canyon’s rim and soar through millions of years of geological time. Listen to the informative onboard commentary as you marvel at the canyon’s sheer size, brilliant palette of colors and rugged beauty.

Land at the Grand Canyon Ranch, an exclusive 165-square mile (265.5-square km) ranch 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.

Arrive at the ranch house in a horse-drawn wagon and meet real cowboy entertainers, who will share their legends and songs. 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. Learn how the ranch has been passed down through generations and discover its Native American history dating back 3,600 years.

Enjoy old-fashioned hospitality as you indulge a Western-style BBQ meal. Then, take an optional buffalo safari on a guided horseback ride (not included) through the Joshua Tree Forest or on a horse-drawn wagon ride along the historical Mormon Trail. On each Wild West adventure, take in the magnificent scenery and see buffalo roaming in their natural environment – truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

After your Western adventure, enjoy a scenic helicopter flight back to Las Vegas.
