Tour description provided by Viator

Experience Sin City from a different perspective – from the air! On this exhilarating tour of Las Vegas aboard an open-cockpit biplane, admire incredible aerial views of Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Boulder City, the Mojave Desert, Red Rock State Park and the dazzling Las Vegas Strip. Choose a 45-minute or 75-minute flight with an expert pilot, who'll provide interesting commentary about the sights you see.

75-Minute Flight:
Your 75-minute minute biplane tour of the whole Las Vegas Valley begins with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel and takeoff from the Henderson Executive Airport. Your biplane is equipped with an open cockpit, modeled after the original 1930s design, making for an ideal sightseeing platform. Throughout the flight, your pilot will provide expert commentary about the sights you see.

Head east over Dutchman's Pass to fly over historic Boulder City. Take in the views as you circle over Black Canyon and Hoover Dam. Turn northwest to fly over Lake Mead National Recreation Area, all the while admiring the scenery of the Mojave Desert.

On the north side of Lake Mead, turn west and get a magnificent view of the Las Vegas Strip as you head toward Red Rock State Park. Named for its brilliant red sandstone, this park is one of the most beautiful areas surrounding Las Vegas and features more than 2,000 jagged cliffs overlooking a verdant valley.

Then, turn toward the quaint town of Blue Diamond, cross over the Sloan Mine, and travel over the southern tip of the city before landing.

45-Minute Flight:
On the 45-minute biplane flight, you’ll fly the same route as above until you hit Lake Mead National Recreation Area. As you veer toward the south side of the city, get a great view of the Las Vegas Strip, with a beautiful backdrop of Red Rock State Park and Mt Charleston in the distance, and then land back at the airport.
