My friend and I were looking for a couple epic things to do during our weekend in Vegas. Flying over the strip in a helicopter was on the list. As we started doing research on the best tours, we found Sundance. They had the best reviews and a great price point.
We ended up paying $99 per person to be picked up from our hotel (the Luxor) in a limo and driven to the helicopter tour site for a 15 minute fly around the Las Vegas strip.
Although they were about 30 minutes late, our driver was very professional and the limo was clean. There weren’t any drinks in the limo which would’ve added some extra fun. It took roughly 5 minutes to get to the helicopter site.
After we checked in, we waited no longer than 10 minutes for our pilot to come get us. Ingo was our pilots name. He chatted with us for a few minutes while we waited, it was nice getting to know him and where he was from. It made my first experience in a helicopter a little more relaxing!
He explained a few rules and before we knew it, the helicopter was taking off and we were flying over the strip. The ride lasted a little over 15 minutes and the views were absolutely incredible. I highly recommend trying to sit in the front with the pilot if you can fight off the other guests for the seats. It was pretty awesome to sit in the front with the pilot and see all of the helicopter gadgets. The ride was so smooth, it was almost more enjoyable than flying in an airplane.
Even though the tour seems a little pricey for the short time spent in the air, it was an incredible experience that I recommend for everyone. Thanks for an incredible flight, Ingo!
