Visit Las Vegas And Take A Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour That's Friendly On Your Budget

Travel & Tourism,Recreation & Leisure
While a helicopter tour is not the least expensive way to tour the Grand Canyon, it is certainly one of the best and most fun. And when you go to Vegas, you'll have your choice of a number of fun helicopter tours to the National Park. Not only that, if you choose the right tour out of Vegas, you can have a fantastic time at an affordable cost.

About Vegas Landing Tours

Vegas is a major hub for Canyon helicopter flights, so it is the ideal place to begin your tour. For one thing, the city is close enough to the Canyon that you can get there in thirty minutes by chopper. As an added bonus, you'll get an aerial view of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead because they are along the route choppers take from Vegas.

A popular tour you should consider is the Champagne Picnic tour that flies down and lands on the bottom of the Canyon. After you land, you can explore the area by foot for about thirty minutes, and you'll also be served a picnic complete with champagne and snacks. This tour is fun and an excellent choice if you need to watch your budget, however, if you have the extra funds, you can add on a second stop on top of the Canyon, or you can even take a float trip along the Colorado River.

This tour happens to be the only one that descends into the Canyon and lands on the floor, so you'll be treated to some amazing sightseeing. That's part of the reason the West Rim is such a popular destination, because at the South Rim, helicopters are banned from flying below the rim.

These are very popular tours and the seats sell out fast. For that reason, you want to buy your tour about two weeks ahead of time, and the best way is to use your credit card and buy the tour online. This allows you to get the lowest price and it also immediately locks in your seats.

Air-Only Tours From Vegas

If you have limited funds for your tour, you may want to book an air-only tour instead. These tours don't land at the Canyon, but they are packed with awesome sightseeing since you'll still fly over the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, plus you'll get an aerial view of the main sights at the West Rim, and your helicopter will even fly inside the Canyon for a portion of the tour. This tour gives you a unique perspective on the Canyon, and you'll see things you would miss on any other type of Canyon tour.

Touring The South Rim

If you want to see the South Rim instead, then an affordable option is the half-hour flight to the North Rim and back. This tour covers rugged and pristine land with may spectacular views, and you'll even get to see the deepest trench in the Canyon. If you can afford to spend more, you may want to opt for the longer, 50-minute tour instead since it covers more ground as it flies over to the eastern park border.

Is The Deluxe Option Worth It?

Even though you want to stick to your budget, you should know what all the perks are with a deluxe upgrade. These helicopters are available as deluxe and basic versions. The basic tours still provide you with free transportation to and from your hotel, but it is in a shuttle bus, plus, the tours fly on Bell Ranger aircraft. The deluxe tours use the EcoStar helicopters that are made specifically for sightseeing, so they are roomier and more comfortable, plus they have huge wraparound windows for the best views possible. Not only that, the deluxe tours transport you to and from the helipad in a limousine, which adds a VIP touch to your tour.

Get Ready For A Fun Tour

The bottom line is that you can take a helicopter tour of the Canyon without busting the bank. You can probably book a tour for under $200 for an experience you'll never forget. So when you find the tour you want, be sure you book it in advance before it sells out, and buy it online with your credit card so you save even more by using the lower Internet rate. By booking early and booking online, you'll find the lowest price, and that allows you to add on exciting upgrades while staying within your budget.

Once your tour is booked and locked in, you can relax and get prepared for an exciting experience at one of the most scenic wonders in America.
