Enjoy a Grand Canyon tour from Las Vegas with Incredible Adventures!
We offer trips to different areas of the Grand Canyon, each providing distinct experiences.
Our Grand Canyon West Rim Tours visit the tribal lands of the Hualapai Indians. Here you can also enjoy the Grand Canyon Skywalk: a glass U-shaped bridge hanging over the precipitous canyon below! Whether traveling to the rim by air or ground, you will be treated to live-action cowboy and Indian dance performances, and will get to see some of the rich history of this area of the desert.
The Grand Canyon South Rim is a more rustic option. Enjoy the breathtaking views from Bright Angel Lodge, and experience some of the most unbelievable vistas to be found in the United States. You can even take a helicopter INTO the canyon! This is the most popular Grand Canyon destination, and when you visit you will understand why.
With so many tour options, we’re sure to have a Grand Canyon trip for you!
The Grand Canyon is located in the northwestern corner of Arizona. It is over a mile deep, up to 18 miles wide at one point, about 277 miles long, and it is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
The Canyon has been forming for over forty million years as the mighty Colorado River has cut through the layers of rock whilst the Colorado Plateau has gone through uplift and erosion, creating the stunning canyon that is seen today. Over 2 billion years of geological history is exposed, and the canyon supports a great variety of ecosystems that range in climate and flora/fauna from the Colorado River on the bottom up to the surrounding forests at the rims of the canyon.
For thousands of years, well before Spanish explorers set sight on the canyon, the Native Americans have been living and settling in and around the Canyon. Today, the current tribes living in and managing some of the land surrounding the National Park include the Hualapai, the Havasupai, the Paiutes, and the Navajo.
The first Spanish explorers sighted the Canyon in 1540, but it wasn’t until the 1850s, that several expeditions were led into the canyon to explore the area and establish navigable river crossings. In 1869, Major John Wesley Powell led his first boat expedition starting in Green River, Wyoming, continuing to the confluence with the Colorado River near Moab, Utah, and finishing with passage through the Grand Canyon. It was General Powell who first started calling the canyon, “the Grand Canyon”, instead of the “Big Canyon” as it was still known at that time.
The Grand Canyon was first federally protected as a Forest Reserve in 1893, and in 1908, U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt established the area and surrounding forest lands as a National Monument. Finally in 1919, it gained National Park status. Now, the Park receives close to 5 million visitors each year.
There are many ways to enjoy the beauty of the Grand Canyon. A simple walk along the South Rim, a hike down into the Canyon, a stay at the bottom next to the Colorado River, a float ride on the river, or a helicopter flight above. All provide a unique perspective on one of the most stunning natural wonders of the world.
“We booked this trip before we left the UK and I am so glad we did. It was fantastic. I’m not keen on heights but the pilot made us feel so comfortable and safe I forgot about my fear and enjoyed the best experience of my life. Flying over the Hoover dam and then The Grand Canyon was totally exhilarating. We landed for champagne and nibbles and got to take lots of photos. Coming back my husband and I were up front. We flew up the strip at sunset…. What a sight. If you are worried about this trip but want to see all these amazing sights. Book you won’t regret it , this is a really professional company from the moment they pick you up at the hotel till they drop you back off they want you to have a great experience and they don’t disappoint.”

Grand Canyon Overnight Camping Tour
This tour was the best! Me and my friend did a Grand Canyon Overnight Tour for 2 days. It was amazing! We went there by a van, stopped at Hoover Dam on our way, stopped at Historic Route 66 on our way back, did a helicopter tour over the Canyon, and still had plenty of time to do walks around (and in) the Canyon.
Our guide was awesome! During our long way to the South Rim he told us about Las Vegas, about Hoover Dam, lots of history and geology about the Canyon and how it was “made”, stories about wild animals. He knows a lot about South West and you can ask him anything. I learnt so much new.
In the evening, we sat by fire near Grand Canyon, which was also a super nice experience with some beer, marshmallow cooking and ghost stories. It was so much fun.
I would suggest this tour to anyone! It’s not just a very comfortable way to see great nature but also you will learn lots of things in a very interesting and funny way!

“Wind Dancer” Helicopter Tour
We feel extremely lucky to have had such an amazing experience flying to the Grand Canyon. From the moment we were picked up from our hotel by our friendly and knowledgeable driver Fernando, through the check-in and safety briefing at the base and most importantly the during flight, the service was first class. I would like to make a special mention to Riley Ballard our pilot for the day who was superb! Great pilot, entertaining and very knowledgeable throughout the whole tour. Riley you’re a ROCKSTAR!! This day was a special day as I had the opportunity to propose to my girlfriend at the bottom of the Grand Canyon with champagne, she said “YES”! All of this would not have been possible without you all. Thanks for making it an unforgettable day.

Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour
Best Time Ever
My wife and I went on the Wind Dancer flight this past Monday as a present for my wife’s 50th birthday and let me tell you, she and I had the best time ever. This may have very well been the coolest thing I ever did. She was afraid she would be nervous but not once did she get nervous. Our Pilot Jason was absolutely awesome and he looked to be having as much fun as us and that is really cool. Thank you very much for making my experience and my wife’s birthday a great time!

The tour is a must see…. and the service was great!!! I would recommend anybody to book this tour. The tour guides are very informative, and they are very knowledgeable about the history of both the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. My girlfriend used this tour service and the most memorable impact the tour had on us was how humorous the tour guide Thomas was…he had us cracking up from the moment we got on the bus. THANKS THOMAS!!!!!

We Plan on Going Back Again
I highly recommend this tour for everyone. Our bus driver “J” was very informative and she kept us entertained the whole way…the skywalk was great and the views from Guano point are amazing and is also the best place to eat while you’re looking at the fantastic views of the Grand Canyon. We plan on going back again with this tour, hopefully we can also get “J” as a driver!

Felt Like Friends Rather than Customers
I wanted to send a quick note to express my gratitude for the superb service of our tour guide driver James on the tour to The Grand Canyon. I took my mother on a post-mother’s day vacation to Las Vegas and I am so happy that I decided to use your company! James made the trip exciting. He was very knowledgeable about the city and was very entertaining the entire bus ride. He made everyone laugh. His warm, playful spirit was infectious and made all the passengers feel like we were friends rather than customers. We really had a great time and appreciate his excellent customer service! He made my mother very happy and she said “it was the best tour she’s ever been on!”. I will recommend your tours to all of my friends and family that are planning to visit Las Vegas! THANK YOU!
