Las Vegas, NV (PressExposure) August 09, 2013 -- With the Labor Day holiday on the horizon, Grand Canyon Tours, the number one source for National Park tour information, announced the release of a new set of discounts on airplane rides.
"The last major summer holiday is coming up," said Keith Kravitz, owner of Grand Canyon Tours. "To celebrate it, staff here have updated the company deal sheet to feature terrific deals on air tours."
Kravitz said deals are available on flights departing from Las Vegas and Tusayan, AZ. "In a rare occurrence, discounts abound for both rims," he noted. "It's inexcusable now to ride a plane and pay full retail price."
Las Vegas airplane tours go to the West Rim and the South Rim while Tusayan planes zero in on all the South Rim highlights.
"There's no better option than a plane ride from Vegas to the South Rim," said Kravitz. "The flight over is an hour, and, in most cases you'll be back on The Strip in time for evening plans."
Planes from Las Vegas also come with a number of options. West Rim trips, for example, let travelers bundle in a helicopter ride to the bottom of the canyon, a boat ride down the Colorado River and/or full access to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
"Of course, there's an air-only tour, and it covers all the highlights like Lake Mead, Hoover Dam and the West Rim," said Kravitz. "However, for those visitors searching for a more comprehensive experience, landing packages are a must."
South Rim airplanes offer the traveler the opportunity to see up to 75 percent of the National Park in less than 60 minutes. "These flights are value packed," Kravitz noted. "You everything from the South Rim to the eastern boundary before returning over the North Rim and through the Dragoon Corridor, which is the canyon's widest and deepest section."
Canyon airplanes come with a number of features that are tour-friendly. "These aircraft hold up to 19 people and have been customized to provide the ultimate canyon experience," Kravitz noted. "For example, wings are affixed to the top of the cabin so the views below are unobstructed. Seats are recliner style and each passenger can opt to use a pair of personal headphones and listen to pre-recorded narrative that's been translated into more than 10 languages."
More than 4 million people a year visit the Grand Canyon and many of them take an air tour, noted Kravitz. " If you are serious about getting airborne this summer, I strongly recommend you book at least a week ahead of time," he noted. "By reserving your seat early, you get access to more flight times and better selection."
Grand Canyon Tours' deal sheet represents the company's best efforts to track down the top prices on select airplane tours. However, cautioned Kravitz, consumers need to follow through in order to benefit from these unique offers. "The key thing to remember here is too complete the booking online," he noted. "Do this and you'll indisputably lock yourself into the Internet price."
