Share

The United States boasts a plethora of amazing landmarks and natural wonders. The city of sin has been dubbed the “Entertainment Capital of the World” for many years, namely because of its incredible nightlife, which consists of world-renowned restaurants, casinos and other amazing places. Likewise, the United States’ most acclaimed ravine is home to some divine views, exotic plants and almost 90 unique animal species. So, if you’re finding yourself bored during your semester break from university or your down time away from the office, consider doing something different by checking out some of the tours for the helicopter Grand Canyon Las Vegas area. You definitely won’t regret the experience!

 

Amazing views

One of the best advantages of your aerial journey through the region is you will witness some of the most incredible views that the United States’ can offer. You will get unparalleled access to some of the most intricate and hidden parts of the ravine, specifically the renowned Dragon Corridor. What is all the more incredible is that the ravine is actually getting wider and wider because of water erosion from the Colorado River! Because of this, you can’t see everything or truly experience the entirety of the ravine from lookout points like Hopi, Mohave, Powell or Yavapai Point. An aerial view, on the other hand, will provide you with a different story.

Likewise, a helicopter ride in Las Vegas will provide you with some stunning views of the desert city below! The waterworks at the Bellagio Fountains are incredible enough on ground level, so imagine being able to see them from the sky. Don’t forget the Luxor sky beam, which is the strongest beam of light in the world. So powerful is the beam that the hotel’s management had to lower its strength to save on energy costs!

 

Not expensive

A standard helicopter tour through the Grand Canyon will set you back around $200; however, this will change depending on the season. Summer months are generally more popular, so expect some slightly higher prices during those times when tours are in high demand. A $200 tour will give you approximately 30 minutes of air time over the ravine and some incredible views! That’s pretty hard to turn down.

On the other hand, a conventional helicopter ride over Las Vegas will actually be less, generally under $100. However, the tour is generally around 15-20 minutes. Nonetheless, you’ll see The Bellagio, The Mirage and many other famous casinos and landmarks throughout desert city. Moreover, you can even organise to be escorted from your hotel to the departure location. Champagne and pre-tour beverages can be provided.

 

Have better stories to tell

The conventional trip to the desert city is a pretty boring cliché. Generally, it involves a lot of drinking, gambling and some memory loss in between. There’s nothing wrong with having a great time but you can’t simply drink the entire time. Instead, take a day off from the casinos and complete a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas. Not only could it be a nice way to get over a hangover or relax, but it’s a nice way to create some quality memories with some great friends and family.

At the end of the day, would you rather be that person at a party who can only talk about drunken stories they barely remember, or would you rather be that person who truly experienced what the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas has to offer?

So, what is holding you back? Don’t hesitate any longer and check out some of the helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas today! It’s a truly amazing experience that you won’t soon forget.
