You will go from the airplane directly to a helicopter for a 10 minute ride to the floor of the Grand Canyon.  This is the only place in the entire 277 miles of the Canyon that you can go below the rim in any way besides your own two feet or a mule.

Traverse a steep set of stairs to the riverside to board a pontoon boat for a 15 – 20 minute, smooth water ride on the Colorado River.  Just enough time for some great photos and to see the perspective from the bottom of the canyon as you look straight up the Canyon walls, giving you a unique perspective of the beauty of this magnificent wonder. After the pontoon boat ride, you will board the helicopter for the 10 minute flight back to the top of the Grand Canyon!

Just outside the Skywalk you will experience the Hualapai Indian Culture through Native American Performances (occasional) and an Indian Village with ancient dwellings constructed in the traditional methods by local tribes. This area of the Canyon, known as Eagle Point, due to the formation in the Canyon walls that resembles an Eagle spreading her wings, offers spectacular views of the Grand Canyon.

The next stop on the tour will be Guano Point. This location offers one of the most scenic places to enjoy lunch (provided with the tour) at an outdoor eating area on a plateau surrounded on three sides by the magnificent Grand Canyon. After your lunch, enjoy a leisurely walk along a trail that extends out into the Canyon and enjoy the spectacular views and photo opportunities.
