5 Tips: Awesome Las Vegas Helicopter Rides To Grand Canyon5 Tips: Awesome Las Vegas Helicopter Rides To Grand Canyon

If you're headed to Las Vegas anytime soon, you definitely need to consider a Grand Canyon helicopter tour. Indeed, there are a lot of options out there and it can get quite confusing. To help you cut through the clutter, I wrote up these 5 tips that I personally know have been useful in making my flights massively better.


My first tip is to book in advance. This is so important because helicopter tours quickly sell out. My recommendation is to lock yours down right after you book your hotel room. If that's not possible, shoot for two weeks before flight time.

And absolutely never buy your flight 24 hours prior to flight time. Or on the day you want to fly. If you do, you'll either end up paying a fortune to fly or the tour you want is sold out and you're stuck on stand-by hoping a fellow traveler decides not to show up (this is rare).

Tip #2 is to buy your tour online. Not only is this the most efficient use of time, you'll find the cheapest rates here. In fact, nearly all special promotions are listed on the website. Sure, you can try calling in for a great rate, but I guarantee you that you'll never get a price as low as the one on the website.

Fly to Bottom

Tip #3 is to stick with landing tours (as opposed to air-only flights). Vegas is the only place where you can take a helicopter and land at the bottom so you've got to go for it. And if you feel you really want to go for it, upgrade and include a Colorado River boat tour and tickets to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

My fourth tip is fly only in an EcoStar 130 helicopter. This is instrumental to getting the best tour possible. The EC 130 is the best helicopter flying the Canyon today. It is 25% larger than standard helicopters and boasts a massive windshield that delivers incredible 180-degree views. Further, these choppers are decked out with stadium-style seats so every seat is the best in the house.

My final tip is to always book a deluxe tour (versus a basic tour). Deluxe tours come with a bunch of great perks. One that really stands out is that deluxe flights leave from the Vegas Strip and come with an extended tour of The Strip on the way back from Vegas. The other is that you get picked up and dropped off from your Vegas hotel in a stretch limousine.

Bonus tip: The best time to fly is in the morning from 8 a. M. To 12 p. M. Temperatures are still relatively cool. More importantly, this is the timeframe when visibility is at it's best and the air is the smoothest. However, morning flights are the most popular flights so follow tip #1 and book morning tours as early as you possibly can.


I hope these 5 tips on how to make your Las Vegas helicopter tour to the Grand Canyon even better helped you plan your flight. If you still need help, come on by my website. There I list the best deals on the Web. I also am available to chat with you and answer all your questions. Once you've visited, you'll clearly be on the way to getting the best heli tour at the absolute lowest price.
