If getting picked up in a Mercedes and taken to the Grand Canyon sounds like a dream-day out, it can only get better. This VIP journey to one of the world's most famous natural wonders is extra special from start to finish - with a private guide, lunch and even an optional helicopter flight.
Traveling past the extinct volcano Fortification Hill, head through Black Canyon and feast your eyes on rugged Western Arizona - home of the bighorn sheep! Heading on, you'll visit one of the most picturesque locations in the whole of the Grand Canyon, the South Rim. You VIP you.
Your audio guide will fill you in on the people, places and events that have shaped Nevada's unique and fascinating history.
With your small group (ideal for a more personalized trip), tuck into a delicious lunch at National Geographic Visitors Center and take in a movie at the IMAX Theater Complex.
Take a tour of the National Park, complete with photo stops at the three major lookout points: Mather Point, Bright Angel Lodge, and Yavapai Point.
Look out for wildlife as you go and soak up the stories of the Grand Canyon, Spanish explorers, native cultures and more! For passengers not taking the helicopter flight, you'll get to enjoy more time at the Grand Canyon.
Optional Helicopter Flight
If you choose the helicopter option, lunch will be a lunch box with a choice of sandwich options and snacks. Taking off from Grand Canyon National Park Airport, you'll fly over the Kaibab National Forest and across the deepest and widest part of the Grand Canyon.
Take in the breathtaking views over the mighty Colorado River and the canyon's North Rim. See rock formations like the Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist, as you fly back through the Dragon Corridor before landing back at the helipad.
