This is no heavyweight championship bout, but it is Las Vegas, so it’s easy to imagine the face-off. In one corner, you have the city’s preeminent helicopter tour company, Maverick Helicopters, offering the most exhilarating tours of the Strip in the luxurious “limousine of the sky” the ECO-Star helicopter. In the other corner, you have the Lip Smacking Foodie Tour company, offering visits to some of the city’s most renowned restaurants, sparing visitors the hassle of making reservations and waiting in line. Fortunately, the two companies’ new joint tour means you won’t have to pick just one of these world-class experiences during your Vegas vacation.
The new package from these two very different tour companies, Neon Nights and Savory Bites, is the city’s one and only combination helicopter ride and foodie tour of the Strip in one unforgettable night.
Don a dinner bib first
Working up an appetite first is a good idea, for this is where the new five-hour tour begins. With a three-hour culinary excursion to five of Las Vegas’ most exclusive restaurants on the Strip, this new foodie tour features:
- Immediate seating and VIP service.
- A different dining experience at each stop along the way, working up the menu from appetizers to entrees and then desserts.
- A total of at least 15 gourmet dishes prepared by award-winning chefs.
- A walking tour led by a guide who enlightens visitors with inside information on Vegas along the way.
- The fun of interacting with fellow foodies amid the backdrop of one of the world’s most glittering cities, ending at the Paris Las Vegas.
Adventure shifts into high gear
From there, visitors take a shuttle to the Maverick Helicopters’ plush Las Vegas Boulevard terminal. Enjoy a champagne toast before taking a night flight over Las Vegas that includes breathtaking views of such iconic landmarks as:
- Caesars Palace
- Eiffel Tower
- MGM Grand
- Downtown Las Vegas
Maverick’s ECO-Star helicopters offer luxury most people rarely experience, including nearly 25 percent more cabin space than most currently in the air, wraparound glass for pristine visibility and theater-style seating.
Maverick’s pilots offer lively, personal narration and anecdotes throughout the excursion. Guests will also have the opportunity to purchase a personalized, multi-camera sky-cam recording of their flight.
It’s no wonder Maverick is the only company to be singled out twice by Travel Channel for offering one of the country’s “10 Best Helicopter Thrills.” Now, by teaming up with the Lip Smacking Foodie Tour company, Maverick is creating a new recipe for adventure.
