Once in a while we all dream of doing something special, something that is either a once in a lifetime event, or maybe just a treat to yourself if you’ve been working particularly hard or been under pressure. By something special, we don’t often mean a day trip to the beach, or a night out at a bar, but something out of the ordinary that normally you wouldn’t consider.
Amongst those extraordinary dreams could be a helicopter ride, which is certainly something you don’t do every day, (unless you just happen to be a helicopter pilot!) Add to that, traveling down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon is definitely something you don’t do all the time. So imagine a Grand Canyon helicopter tour that includes a boat ride as well – sounds like the perfect day out doesn’t it? Grand Canyon helicopter tours are becoming all the more popular these days, and for good reason. You get to experience and unforgettable day out, and at good value too.
Business can be tough, very tough at times. If you run a company you’ll know that all those hours spent drumming up business can take its toll. Work can be hard to come by; you could be faced with reliability problems, shipping problems, and all sorts of stuff that you’d never really think of unless you run a company. Then there are staff issues, people going on vacation at the worst possible time, trying to bring in replacements, training, excuses, and the all-important issue of staff morale.
It may be that your employees have put in an extraordinary amount of work over the past months, and as a result the business has gone from strength to strength. You want to reward them, but you have no idea what to do. A bunch of flowers and a box of chocolates each just don’t seem to be enough. How about treating your staff to an all expenses paid, Ultimate VIP package Las Vegas Strip Helicopter flight? This can be a really cool way to say thank you, and can be a lot of fun for you too! With Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours, there are actually a lot of Las Vegas tours available, but the Ultimate VIP package really is one of the best. It includes a helicopter ride, VIP treatment in a limousine, and guest list access to one of the many bars and clubs Las Vegas has to offer.
Perhaps if you think back to your childhood, one of the places you wanted to visit was the Grand Canyon. After all, wherever you go, there are always pictures of the Grand Canyon south rim, and it just looks so cool with the steep formidable rock faces that seem to change color with each passing hour, and the cool waters of the Colorado, seemingly miles below, and meandering its way towards the Gulf of California. Part of the attraction may be because it seems like the ultimate adventure to a child, to experience this wonder of the world in all its beauty.
If you’re now working and desperately in need of a break, perhaps with a week vacation time from work, you may be thinking about what to do with your time. If you once dreamed of going to “the canyon”, and if you’ve always wanted to go on a helicopter ride, this may be your chance. Why not consider a Grand Canyon helicopter tour.
The Grand Canyon is such an amazing place; the word “grand” just doesn’t do it justice. At 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, over 1 mile deep and around 2 million years old, it is no surprise that it is one of the 7 Natural Wonders of the World.
From the ground it is possible to see 45 miles of the Canyon, whereas from a helicopter you can see more than 140 miles. That’s more than three times the amount of the Grand Canyon that you can experience in one go. Fortunately there are now a wide variety of Grand Canyon helicopter tours available so you can experience the magnificence of this world famous land mark. However, before you part with your hard earned cash and book a helicopter tour, it’s best to have a look at the following tips to make sure that you get the helicopter tour that suits you.
- Don’t just take the first tour that you see. Each tour comes with something different, so make sure that you have a look at all the tours available before booking.
- Book your tour in advance. Because of the increasing popularity of taking a Grand Canyon helicopter tour, you should always get your booking in early so you can be guaranteed a flight on the day of your choice.
- Choose the time of day that will suit you. Flights leave at all times of the day so you can arrange a flight to fit in with your itinerary. Although it is worth mentioning that even though the views will always be impressive no matter what time you fly, if you take a morning tour then the air will be cooler, which means a smoother flight. On the other hand you could take a sunset tour where the colours of the Canyon will be enhanced by the setting sun, as well as your return trip coming over the lights of the Las Vegas strip at night.
- Bring your camera and/or camcorder with you, as you will no doubt want to relive the experience, as well as share your recordings with others. The helicopters are equipped with windows that enable you to view a full 180 degrees. Make sure that you have fully charged all cameras/camcorders before you fly and that you have enough film/tape/memory to be able to capture the Grand Canyon without worrying about running out.
- While you want to capture the moment on your camera/camcorder, it’s impossible to have a Grand Canyon experience solely through your view finder. You can listen to your pilot/guide who will tell you when something of importance or a photo opportunity is coming up and remember that you can always get what you missed on the way back.
