Looking for something awesome to do during the New Year's Holiday week? Try a Grand Canyon helicopter tour. Trips depart daily from Las Vegas and South Rim and come with a host of exciting upgrades that make these flights so incredibly awesome.

Las Vegas

From here, you get to choose from flyover and landing tours. Both go over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam and the Colorado River before entering Grand Canyon airspace. The flyover, however, will circle back to town while the landing tour will go to the top or the bottom.

I personally like the bottom-landing tours best, especially the one that lands at the base for a Champagne picnic. You get about 30-minutes to explore and I highly recommend you head down to the River and give it a look. You are also welcome to spend most of your time enjoying a glass of "bubbles" and snacks.

There are a lot of travelers who add a Colorado River boat ride to this package. And why not? The river is right there. If that's not enough, add a VIP ticket to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, which lets you walk some 75 feet over the edge until you are standing a whopping 4K feet over the bottom!

South Rim

The South Rim, which is 277 miles from Las Vegas and 3.5 hours from Phoenix, AZ, only offers flyover tours. You can pick between the 30-minute and the 50-minute flight. The former goes from the South Rim to the North Rim and back, while the later does that, too, as well as everything up to the East Rim. By the time you've done the 50-minute ride, you'll have see up to 75 percent of the Park.

All helicopter tours are available in basic and deluxe. The key difference is the chopper. On a basic tour, you'll be on an AStar or a Bell Ranger, both of which are older model helicopters but incredibly fun to fly. On the deluxe, you'll be on an EcoStar 130 helicopter, which features a cabin that's 25 percent larger and a 180-degree wraparound window.

Deluxe Tours

If you're taking a deluxe Vegas tour, you'll also get a few more perks, like limousine transfer from your Vegas Strip hotel to the airstrip and an extended tour over the Vegas Strip from the top to the bottom and everything in between! Frankly, when I'm in Vegas, I only go deluxe because I find the value to be better.

New Year's is a crazy busy time in Las Vegas and at the Grand Canyon. As such, I strongly recommend you book your tour as far in advance as you can. Try to avoid same-day bookings as you most likely won't get a seat. And if you do, it will be expensive. Further, try to book your tour online. That's where you'll get the best deal. Just remember to complete the transaction on the Website in order to qualify for the Internet discount.

Conclusion

I hope this article about the best Grand Canyon helicopter tours during New Year's Eve proved helpful as you plan your vacation. There are two places to do a tour: Las Vegas and South Rim. From Vegas, you can do a flyover or a landing tour. From South Rim, you can only do flyovers. And make sure to strongly consider the deluxe versions of these tours as they are the better value.
