LAS VEGAS, NV, February 24, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Grand Canyon travel season will start in earnest next month. In anticipation of that, Grand Canyon Helicopters has released a free report that lists the best air tour deals for the remainder of Q2 2014.
"Right now is one of the best times to book a helicopter tour," said Keith Kravitz, owner of Grand Canyon Helicopters (GCH), a consumer information site focused on finding the best fares on Canyon flights. "Winter is traditionally the slowest time of the year for flights and prices have been suppressed in order to stimulate demand. For savvy travelers, it's bargain time."
The Deal Sheet
To assist travelers in getting great deals, GCH just released a revised version of its Deal Sheet. "The Sheet is a collection of helicopter tours wherein staff have found price aberrations across a key selection of top tour operators," said Kravitz. "Those deals are captured into the free report and made available free of charge to all visitors. It's a great time saver and is recognized by many as a terrific way to save money."
Helicopter rides are available from Las Vegas and Tusayan, AZ. Vegas helis fly to the West Rim, which is just 120 miles to the east of Sin City, while Tusayan choppers go over just the South Rim. "Need to remind visitors that there's no connecting helicopter flights between the rims. If one is in Vegas and wants to do South Rim, the best option is to fly by plane and add a heli over the Dragoon Corridor into the mix."
Tours include aerial and landings at both rims. "Air tours are the cheapest option followed by landing tours," noted Kravitz." And the more intricate the landing package, the more expensive. The best landing trips originate from Las Vegas, with the most popular being the one that goes to the bottom for a Champagne Picnic. If visiting South Rim, definitely give consideration to the sunset safari/jeep trip."
Advanced bookings are strongly advised. "Don't wait until you arrive at the destination," Kravitz said. "Further, avoid booking within 72 hours of flight time. The price will always be higher and the possibility of the flight being sold out is a strong probability. Rule of thumb is to secure seats at least a week prior, especially with spring break in March looming in the near future."
Spring also means rafting tours kick into high gear and one of the best rolls out of Las Vegas. "This helicopter-raft tour is phenomenal," said Kravitz. "It starts with a heli to the bottom then a smooth-water float tour that pushes off from the base of Hoover Dam. The cruise itself is about 11 miles and terminates at Willow Beach in Arizona. Overall, it's a day of sun, fun and water and a trip that's great for visitors of all ages."
