There are two ways to see The Strip:
1) Fighting your way through hordes of photo-snapping tourists wearing the worst t-shirts imaginable.
2) Peacefully flying over it all on your way to the Grand Canyon in a luxury helicopter at sunset.
Conditions are currently ripe for option number two: All Las Vegas Tours' Grand Canyon Sunset Deluxe Helicopter Tour, departing daily from downtown hotels.
You'll take a limo to the landing pad, where a state-of-the-art, six-person A-star chopper awaits.
Your 45-minute flight to the Grand Canyon not only includes spectacular aerial views of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, but superior pilot humor, too, as they crack in-flight jokes about the area.
Once you land in the basin of the Grand Canyon, it's time for a champagne picnic lunch beside the Colorado River with huge canyon views all around.
The early evening sunset flight back provides gorgeous views of the Grand Canyon's color contrasts — and and unforgettable view of the Vegas strip all lit up at night.
Beyond you, there are five seats on the chopper. Choose wisely.
