Vegas Thanksgiving Chopper Tours To The Grand Canyon Posted By: Kylie Weber Instead of lounging around your house eating turkey over your Thanksgiving holiday, why not take a fun helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon instead? The bright city is one of the best places to start a your adventure from, with air tours departing daily. Vegas is close enough to the Canyon that it only takes around an hour to fly there. Make sure you get in quick, though, because these tours are in high demand. For that reason, you want to book your tour in advance so you can lock in your reservations. What’s On Offer? One of the best things about flying from Vegas, is that you get even more on your tour than just the Canyon itself. The helicopter ride will take you out past the Hoover Dam, and the adjacent Lake Mead. You can book an air-only tour that flies around the West Rim and then returns to the city, or you can book a landing tour that sets down at the Canyon.

Labor Day 2015 is the last long weekend of the year, and it’s the last major national holiday before Christmas. Make it special with an air tour. Air Tours Of The West Rim Las Vegas is closest to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, which is just 125 miles away.

You can tour the South Rim or you can tour the West Rim. Here’s some help deciding which one of the rims to visit. First, you must select your starting point. The tours depart from Vegas in Nevada and the South Rim in Arizona. The South Rim tours depart from an airport located in Tusayan in Arizona.

The reason, is that the South Rim is too far for them to travel. The South Rim is 277 miles from Las Vegas. So if you want to visit the South Rim and are in Vegas, your only option is to take an airplane tour. The West Rim is one of the most fascinating places in the Grand Canyon. Located on the Hualapai Indian Reservation, it is 125 miles east of Las Vegas. The rim has an elevation of 4200 feet and the climate is quite arid. There is one big advantage to touring the West Rim.

grand canyon Grand Canyon Choppers – Where To Find The Most Affordable Options Posted By: Kylie Weber If you’re planning to take a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon, you’ll find some of the tour packages are expensive. However, if you are on a budget, you can still take a great aerial tour of the canyon, for instance, one of the basic helicopter tours that depart from Vegas or the South Rim would be ideal. The reason basic flights are less expensive is that they use slightly older helicopters. That would be the AStar or Bell Ranger. Just because these are older style choppers, it doesn’t mean they are not safe, they still have great safety records and undergo frequent maintenance. What they lack is the big panoramic windshield and stadium style seating you’ll find in the deluxe EcoStar 130 choppers. The Tours Grand Canyon helicopter tours leave from both Boulder City on the outskirts of Vegas, and Tusayan Arizona at the South Rim. The Vegas tours usually provide you with free transportation from your hotel to the airfield in Boulder City. The basic tour shuttle service usually consists of a ride in a van or bus, but if you were to take the deluxe tour, you’d be transported in a limo instead.

Landing tours are exclusive to the West Rim, and all flights depart from Las Vegas in Nevada. Although the South Rim offers some fantastic air only tours, the National Park Service has not authorized landing flights departing from Arizona.

It’s a very popular tour that gives you awesome aerial views of the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, and the Hoover Dam. Once at the canyon, the helicopter will set down below the rim, right next to the Colorado River. You’ll enjoy a fun champagne picnic by the river, and you can even take a boat ride if you wish. Floating along the river is an amazing experience as you gaze up at the colorful rock walls towering above you.

grand canyon Grand Canyon National Park Chopper Excursions And How To Get Front Seats Posted By: Kylie Weber A guided tour is the best way to get the most out of your Grand Canyon trip. Air tours by helicopter are probably the best, and when you get a front seat, the experience is even better. Of course, other people on your tour will probably want to sit by the pilot too, but here are some tips you can use to give you a good chance at scoring the best seat on the tour. Take Your Chances While there are some EC130 choppers that offer air tours and carry seven people, most of the tour helicopters only seat six passengers. The seats are arranged with three in front and three in back. The actual seating arrangement is ultimately determined by the weight of the passengers on that particular tour. This can limit how far you can go towards actually ‘choosing’ your seats, but there is a way you can increase your chances of sitting in the front row. You may want to start by figuring out your odds. You’ll have a one in six chance of sitting in a front seat, but so does everyone else on your tour.

grand canyon Grand Canyon National Park Choppers – Exactly Why Deluxe Excursions Are The Better Value Posted By: Kylie Weber Are you thinking about taking a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon this year? Along with deciding between a flight originating from the South Rim or Las Vegas, you’ll also need to decide between basic and deluxe air tours. A deluxe Grand Canyon tour is the best way to go. Best Value Realistically, basic tours are the cheapest option. So, if you are on a limited budget, then a basic tour is a good option. The deluxe tours may cost more, but they give you more too. For one thing, you will get complimentary shuttle transportation in a limo rather than a van. You also get to fly in a state-of-the-art chopper. When you book a basic tour, you’ll fly on a Bell Ranger or an AStar. These are safe, basic aircraft. If you book a deluxe helicopter tour, you’ll have to chance to fly on a more advanced EcoStar 130 chopper. The EcoStar 130 is around 25 percent bigger than the other choppers, so you will be more comfortable during your flight. The helicopters are not only designed for comfort, they are made specifically for sightseeing. The have stadium style bucket seats. This makes every seat the best available.

You don’t want the hassle of arranging your own transportation. In fact, you can upgrade most of the tour packages, so you get some other really nice perks too.
