Las Vegas, Nevada
LOVED the helicopter tour - it's like flying in a comfy barcalounger. You don't even really notice you're taking off - one moment you're on the ground, next you're cruising down and over the runway. The ride feels a bit short - especially after the anticipation - but is really pretty excellent and gets you all the sights of the strip. Our pilot was great!
Yes, FAA regulations mandate no photos on the tarmac (big whoop) - and please - don't be the idiot in the helicopter who regularly takes a flash photo despite being told repeatedly not to (I'm looking at you, woman seated next to me - don't make me elbow you again!). The view really, truly can't be beat.
Warnings - you may not get to sit next to the person you book with - the pilot will divvy up where people sit based on weight. Your champagne is at the counter when you check in, and finish it before you go out the door. Lastly - we went on Friday, November 1st - which Maverick now concludes falls in the "off season" for Vegas. As such, we did not get a limo - they're doing a trial run where they pick you up in what is essentially a short bus. *Sad trombone* It's a trial basis, so they may bring back the limos year round - but we were sorta bummed about that.
