Fathers Day Is An Ideal Time For Trips On Grand Canyon Helicopters-vidalia

Travel-and-Leisure Sunday, June 16, is the day we celebrate the dads in our lives, and it is fast approaching. Celebrate the occasion with a chopper tour of the Grand Canyon, you can depart from Vegas or the Grand Canyon National Park Airport in Tusayan, AZ. Chopper tours are very popular with dads and their families so don’t wait too long to get your tickets. Tours operate on the usual schedule then, they even offer the popular early morning flights and the sunset tours. Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours Of The South Rim You can choose from two tours to the South Rim, one of the lasts 50 minutes and the other one lasts 30 minutes. The second one is better if you have the time to spend. You should also consider treating dad to a deluxe tour. Deluxe tours use an EcoStar 130 chopper, a state-of-the-art aircraft that delivers the best experience. Here’s why: They are designed for sightseeing with 180 degree wraparound windshields More personal space because of the larger cabin Stadium-style seating with all seats facing forward A South Rim EcoStar flight will cover up to of the National Park Besides air-only flights, there are some great air/ground experiences from which to choose. You can choose an amazing Jeep Safari that lets you experience the canyon up close and then enjoy watching the sun set over the canyon rim. It’s only offered at 3 p.m. and later. Vegas Flights If your tour starts in Las Vegas, you can take off from the most convenient heliport in Henderson, Boulder City, or the Vegas Strip. It costs a little more to depart from the Strip. You can also choose air-only or landing tours when you leave from Vegas. The deluxe version is the best option when it .es to air-only tours. Why is that? Because these tours use the EcoStar 130 aircraft mention earlier. Also, you might get some extra air time, depending upon your tour operator. Every flight soars over majestic Hoover Dam and scenic Lake Mead before entering Grand Canyon West’s airspace. Air-only tours circle the West Rim, the Grand Canyon Skywalk (nicknamed ?the Glass Bridge?) and the mighty Colorado before returning to Vegas. The landing tours are my personal favorites. One of them flies you down to the bottom of the canyon where you can enjoy a scenic champagne brunch or lunch. You can also add on a fun raft trip along the Colorado River. Other landing tours set down at the top of the rim and give you 2 hours for exploration. You will want to visit Guano Point and Eagle Point, but be sure to visit the glass Skywalk. You can walk 70 feet past the rim of the canyon onto a glass walkway, and peer down to the canyon floor that is some 4000 feet below you! Booking your Flight Avoid using sites like Viator, Expedia, or Priceline to book your seats. Because of the added fees, you have to pay more than you need to. Instead, go to the tour operator’s official website to get your tickets. Buying direct from the tour operator’s website saves about 30% off the price of your seats! Summing Up Treat your day to a fantastic experience by taking him on a chopper tour of the Grand Canyon. It’s a terrific experience that Dad won’t soon forget. Be sure to buy the deluxe tours if your budget allows. Be sure to book quickly, because tours on Grand Canyon helicopters are popular for Dad’s special day.
