Las Vegas air tours tend to come in two flavors: spectacular city tours and spectacular nature tours.One of the best ways to get an overview of the city is to fly directly over the Strip. At night and from the air, Las Vegas looks like a patch of diamonds sprinkled on a darkened desert floor. There's no better way to get a sense of this remote wonderland than by air, sipping champagne and snapping aerial photographs.
Helicopter and airplane rides in Vegas usually begin with a limousine trip from your hotel to a helicopter or airport terminal near the Strip. Then, it's liftoff: You'll see The Strip and all of its highlights: the Mirage volcano, the dancing Bellagio fountains, the Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas, the new High Roller observation wheel, the Statue of Liberty at New York-New York, the iconic Stratosphere Tower, and more.
Equally beautiful - and equally popular - are the Grand Canyon tours. Experienced pilots whisk thousands of visitors over Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and the West Rim of the Grand Canyon every year. Some tours will even set you down near the canyon floor for a champagne picnic. And if you've never seen the spectacular Southwest at sunset, you're in for a treat. Be sure to ask your tour operator about sunset tours and sunset tour returns.
Up close or from a bird's-eye view, Las Vegas and the Mojave are always a highlight.
Over the city or over the desert mountains and canyons, the views are unforgettable. There's definitely something in the air up there.
