Las Vegas is a city with a number of different accommodations, many of them considered the best in the world. That being said, it is not surprising that there are a number of different tour operators that provide high end helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon.

What defines a luxury chopper trip? What about having a ride in a stretch limousine? This is a bit of class that lets you know from the beginning that you're in for quite the day. Drop off is in front of the operator's private terminal. You will find that these facilities are top notch. The available limousines are new, spacious, and ready to take you anywhere. The passenger lounge overlooks the helipad and is equipped with comfortable couches.

The customer service is top notch. The front lobby is quite friendly. The check-in staff are efficient and trained to meet your every need. Even those that work in the gift shop will be more than ready to meet your needs!

The pilot-guides are absolute gentlemen and have received the highest level of flight training. I've found myself in the air more than once, and the pilots will always amaze me with their skill.

The walk from terminal to helicopter is a matter of feet. In other words, the chopper is right outside. This is a perk you'll quickly appreciate if you've ever flown a budget trip, wherein transfers and boardings have devolved into an adventure in and of itself.

The fleets are much newer, and they are fully customized. There is a strong chance you will notice that most choppers available are EcoStar 130's. Along with theater seats and more cabin space, there is also a 180 degree wraparound windshield to provide maximum visibility. They're also equipped with Fenestron rotors, which guarantee your flight will be quiet and smooth.

Tours are more comprehensive than their low-budget cousins. These tours have incredible sunrise/sunset trips along with several side trips that would be considered extras on some of the bargain trips. Pilots also have more leeway to deviate from their flight plan in order to fulfill special client requests and interests.

You have the option of choosing between two types of tours: air-only and landing tours. The most popular trips are sunset air tours, helicopter descents to the base of the West Rim with rafting tour, and the VIP Grand Canyon Skywalk total access pass.

The adage "You get what you pay for" rings so true for these first-class trips. But don't let this deter you from shopping the Internet for the best deal. I know from personal experience that you can save up to 20% on your tours. Buying in advance will allow you to lock in your price. Prices do fluctuate, especially during high season (April through October).

If you are coming to Vegas for a special occasion and want to celebrate with a helicopter tour, I highly recommend you go with the top-shelf flights. The quality is immediate, starting with the door-to-door limousine pick up. Then there's the food, the expertise of the pilots, and the modernity of the equipment and facilities. You will undoubtedly find yourself disappointed if you go with the cheapest option. In order to book the best possible, trip go with the luxury Vegas helicopter ride. It's truly the way to go if want to capture that special moment.
