Want To See The Grand Canyon? A New Way To Get There
Here's an off-Strip adventure that may prove impossible to resist. How about an aerial tour of the Grand Canyon for $200 bucks?
Vegas 500 now offers an "express" tour of the Grand Canyon that promises to take less time out of your Vegas vacation and less cash out of your wallet. Designed to take a total of about five hours roundtrip, flights will take guests over Boulder City, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon as well as give them two hours on the ground before jetting back to Vegas. And, you won't have to fight for the window seat, either. Vegas 500 says every guest gets one. (For the aviation geeks, tours are in either a 9-passenger Cessna Caravan or a 7-passenger GippsAero Airvan.)
Vegas 500's express tour is regularly priced at $274 a person, but if you book during the month of April, they'll chop it down to $200. For more info or to secure a seat, call 888.494.5850 or visit vegas500tours.com.
And, on a comparison note, we Googled around to find how much similar experiences are running. A rate between $279-$309 seems to be common for Grand Canyon airplane/ground tours, however, quite a few companies are offering Internet or monthly specials that lower pricing closer to $200 bucks. Bottom line, if you're interested in jetting off to see one of the wonders of the world, travel around the Internet to find a good offer like this one first.
