Are you constantly on the lookout for a good deal? Then you know Black Friday is the best time to shop because the savings top what you'll see all year.
You might not realize that retail stores and online sites are not the only ones who offer substantial Black Friday savings, and if you're in the mood for a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon on the day after Thanksgiving, you'll find some fantastic bargains.
What You Need To Know
First of all, you need to book your tour online so you get the absolute lowest Black Friday price. Use your credit card to instantly lock in the price and hold your seats.
You'll find discounts on the tours that depart from Vegas as well as those that depart from Tusayan. Both air tours and landing tours are included in the discount pricing.
The landing tours are very popular, but these only depart from Vegas. Since the Black Friday discounts after Thanksgiving are the lowest prices you'll see all year, it is an excellent time to splurge on an exciting landing tour filled with adventure.
Thanks to the steep discounts, you can afford to add on some exciting features to your tour. Even if your budget is limited, you may be able to squeeze in some upgrades because of the lower pricing.
The flights that leave from Vegas come with landing tour options like a Champagne picnic and VIP tickets to the Skywalk.
While you can't take a landing tour at the South Rim, you can still take a ground tour that is just as fun. It takes you through the park on a 4x4 Jeep for a closer look at the landscape. This tour package lets you see the Canyon from the air and from the ground too for a complete perspective of the Canyon. The Jeep portion of the tour is more than two hours of excitement and it also comes with an IMAX cinema experience of the Canyon.
The Deluxe Tour Option
You'll find deals on basic and deluxe tours so you want to know how they differ. The basic tours fly on traditional Bell Ranger choppers. The aircraft is safe and dependable, but it is not the best sightseeing helicopter available. If you want to fly on the best, you need to book a deluxe tour.
EcoStar 130 helicopters are used on the deluxe tours. These are made specifically for commercial sightseeing and the difference shows. The seats are bigger and more comfortable and you have more room in the cabin, but the best thing is the massive wraparound window that provides unobstructed panoramic views during your tour. It's always best to go with a deluxe tour, especially since you can buy one at an affordable price on Black Friday.
Plus, if you depart from Vegas, your deluxe helicopter will lift off from The Strip and you'll be provided with limo transportation to and from your hotel.
The absolute best way to see the Canyon is on a helicopter tour. If you've been holding back until you could get a good deal, then you'll be in luck this Black Friday.
You'll have to move fast though and lock in your tour by buying it online with your credit card. Whether you opt for a landing tour, air-only tour, tour of the West Rim from Vegas or the South Rim from Tusayan, you'll be able to snag the lowest price of the year on one of the most scenic tours in America.
