What to do and see in Las Vegas, Nevada (NV): The Best Helicopter Tours

October 8, 2021 Agatha Simes

Whether you’re a high roller or a low-key lounger, Las Vegas has something to suit your vacation taste. Sample fare from top chefs and cornucopian buffets, try your luck at one of the world’s premier casinos, or take in a spectacular show. Just wandering the Strip is enough to get your heart pumping. Once you’ve had enough of the razzle-dazzle, wave hello to the toothy sea life at the Mandalay Bay Shark Reef, hike Red Rock Canyon, or visit the Neon Museum, where old signs take on new life.

Maverick is such a professional company from the moment you get picked up from your hotel on their shuttle service to the moment you get on the helicopter. Our flight was with Tyler who was such a great pilot and guide. The flight itself was very smooth and the helicopter had amazing views all around the cockpit. Also you get switched around so you get a chance to get an upfront seat. This was our first time to the canyon and we landed at the bottom which was stunning and Tyler handed out snacks and drinks and answered any questions we had. We then took off and landed on the rim where we had 2.5 hours to go check out the sky bridge and guano point. The lines at skybridge get long so knock that out first and spend the most time at guano point. Our ride back was so relaxing and we had an amazing time. Thank you again Maverick helicopters and Tyler for an amazing experience

This trip was book through viator. They picked us up at the appointed time and took us out to Death Valley where we saw multiple sites including the Mesquite Sand Dunes, Furnace Creek, Badwater, the Devil's Golf course and other points of interest. We had requested kosher box lunches and they were very accommodating providing a very delicious meal from Rafi's catering. We took pit stops as needed and Art, the driver and tour guide provided lots of information and answered many questions about the tour, the sites we saw and about Las Vegas in general. Would recommend.
