Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) May 28, 2010
Maverick Helicopter officials have announced the addition of two new tours to the company's schedule, the Skywalk Odyssey and Silver Cloud Sunset excursions. Both new sightseeing expeditions depart from the company's Las Vegas Strip location, 6075 Las Vegas Blvd. South, and both offer unique views of Southern Nevada, Arizona and the Grand Canyon.
For the Skywalk Odyssey, passengers board one of Maverick's ECO-Star helicopters and experience a bird's eye view of the Las Vegas Strip, Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as they venture to the Grand Canyon West Rim. Upon landing at the Grand Canyon West Rim, visitors witness a true engineering marvel, the Grand Canyon Skywalk. The Skywalk features a glass-bottom walking surface, suspends more than 4,000 feet above the Colorado River and extends out approximately 70 feet from the edge of the Grand Canyon. The new Skywalk Odyssey is a four-hour experience and includes expedited admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, as well as 45 minutes of ground time at the Grand Canyon West Rim; the price is $489.
Maverick Helicopter's new Silver Cloud Sunset is perfect for the time-conscious traveler. This spectacular air-only excursion takes passengers high above the Las Vegas Strip and through the Grand Canyon without the landing time. Additional highlights from the Silver Cloud Sunset experience include: Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Lake Las Vegas and Fortification Hill. Travelers enjoy a desert sunset and return as the stunning lights of Las Vegas come to life and transform the city into the "Entertainment Capital of the World." All tours include personal in-flight narration via one of Maverick's experienced and knowledgeable pilots. The new Silver Cloud Sunset excursion lasts approximately three hours and is $389.
