    Welcome aboard, Terry B.

    For all your questions you may want to post those in the appropriate forums to get more exposure and answers to your questions. You can also try using the "Search" feature located at the top of the page in the green bar. It's been a decade or so since I have done any of those tours so unfortunately I am no help.

    Have a great trip, it sounds like you will be busy :thumbsup:

    We did Maverick in October for a flight over the canyon. They most certainly were very professional! Our plane (not helicopter) was beautiful with leather seats, each with a window.

    It was definitely more expensive than the other options, but I booked them based on reviews. The only discount I could find was AAA and I did use that.

    We used Groupon for a lot of buffet discounts last time and it worked great. We have used Goldstar for discounts on show tickets, but have found that seats are better when we by directly (sometimes just not important). We've used Tix4Tonite many times for same day or next day shows...just not a fan of standing in line, so they are not my first choice. I also go to BestOfVegas.com and Vegas.com to check for show tickets offered with a buffet and have booked those many times.

    Good luck with your planning!
