Yes, I did question if we 'needed' to do this tour, considering the cost. But we figured, it is not something we would probably do again (YOLO). We were picked up via limo and taken to the airport, checked in and got a safety briefing....More

A well balanced experience, with info but not cheesy overload of tourist trivia. Highlight of the trip.

Booked the helicopter to the canyon including the skywalk tour via viatour as you get it at discounted prices. It’s still a fairly hefty price but we weren’t disappointed. Great service, picked up from our hotel in a limo, taken to the heliport and straight...More

We watched the sunrise as we boarded our chopper. They take you on a certain path seeing several sites including Hoover damn, Lake Mead, the strip but nothing compared to landing in the Grand Canyon and taking it all in! Fantastic experience and great company!More

My family (2 adults and two teenage boys) are looking forward to ticking off a bucket list item very soon - helicopter day tour to the Grand Canyon from Vegas with Sundance Helicopters. We will be picked up by limo. Being from Australia, we are not familiar with the tipping practices at play. Do we need to tip the limo driver and the pilot and if so, how much would be appropriate? Also, is it a per person thing? The tour cost is about $600 each.

You don't say where you are staying, but I wouldn't think it would be more than a 15 minute ride in the limo from the strip. I think you should tip your limo driver; around $20-$30 at the end of the trip not per person--total. Just make sure you will have the same driver both to the takeoff place and after landing. The pilot is a professional and so you shouldn't need to tip them.

They just showed on the local news that for the first time ever Sundance Helicopters will be able to fly on NYE. They are offering limo pick-up from your hotel, small party, 30-40 min helicopter ride. It cost $499 per person. They are allowed up to 14 helicopters total.

That might be wonderful, but I'd like to hear a review of it before forking over that kind of money. I am not sure how the perspective would be, especially on the first time this is being tried. Have you ever watched the Bellagio fountains from above? It is not nearly as impressive as it is from the ground level. The fireworks could be like that, if the helicopters are above. On the other hand, I watched fireworks from the Strat once, just about the same level as the fireworks, and to be...More
Sundance Helicopters discount coupon (2 Replies)
Hello Lovely People of Trip Advisor, We are going to Vegas in October and want to book the Sundance Helicopters Grand Canyon Escape Helicopter Tour. We are a family of 4 so this will be costly. Does anyone know of any coupon codes we could use to make this a little cheaper.,we don't want to risk it being full by leaving it until we are there to book so would rather pre-book. Thank you in advance.

We called Sundance over the phone and used the coupon code SDHC which saved us well over $100. Call them and compare maybe it will save you more.
