The duo has partnered after both were voted “Best Tour” in Las Vegas Review-Journal’s 2016 Best of Las Vegas Awards.
Award-winning helicopter operator, Maverick Helicopters, has partnered with Las Vegas’ top-rated culinary tour company, Lip Smacking Foodie Tours, to offer the ultimate dining and helicopter experience. Savory Bites & Neon Lights features an exclusive tasting at five prominent restaurants, followed by Maverick Helicopters’ renowned Vegas Nights flight over the Las Vegas Strip.
“We’re excited to dive into this partnership and offer two of the best experiences Las Vegas has to offer,” said Bryan Kroten, vice president of marketing at Maverick Helicopters. “Combining a night of unique culinary tastings with one of Maverick Helicopters’ most popular flights makes Savory Bites & Neon Lights one of the most diverse packages in Vegas.”
The five-hour experience begins at ARIA Resort & Casino and includes a guided tour to each dining venue, reserved seating and up to four signature dishes at each restaurant. Guests can expect to visit acclaimed culinary destinations such as Chef Michael Mina’s Bardot Brasserie, Chef Shawn McClain’s Sage at ARIA and Chef Costas Spiliadis’ Estiatorio Milos inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Savory Bites & Neon Lights is ideal for the ultimate date night, corporate events, special occasions, and bachelor and bachelorette parties. The one-of-a-kind package offers an unparalleled way to enjoy one of the most flourishing, gastronomic cities in the world within a few hours.
“In partnering with Maverick Helicopters, we’ve raised the bar to truly set us apart from any other dining experience in Las Vegas,” said Donald Contursi, president at Lip Smacking Foodie Tours. “There’s nowhere else in the world where you can visit five of the most renowned restaurants in the city, in one evening, followed by an unforgettable helicopter flight over the city’s glittering skyline.”
After the dining experience, guests will be transported to Maverick Helicopters’ private Las Vegas terminal where passengers will be greeted with a champagne toast before their 12 to 15 minute Vegas Nights flight. Each helicopter offers stunning, panoramic views of the Las Vegas Strip with narration about the surrounding attractions. At the end of the flight, a Maverick limo coach will take patrons back to their hotel.
