To tour Las Vegas by night in a helicopter, any time of year, is one of the top things to do on your visit to the city.  Tour companies offer spectacular views from six-seater state of the art helicopters.  These jet helicopters are renowned for their excellent manoeuvrability and many passengers have praised them for the smoothness of their flight.  This is an excellent way to see the dazzling Las Vegas Strip and is available between 6pm and 8pm, depending on the time of year.

The flights themselves last around twelve minutes, which may sound comparatively short, but it’s sufficient for you to see all the sights.  You will need to allow around an hour and half for the whole tour, due to loading and unloading plus your special champagne toast before you board.

Departing from the heliport close to the strip, you’ll start by flying past the large pyramid at the Luxor hotel, with its bright light shining up into the night sky.  You’ll see the magical dancing water fountains of the Bellagio and the legendary Caesar’s Palace, which has hosted many sporting events including World Championship Boxing Matches and Formula One Grand Prix.
