Beyond Expectations- Beyond Five Stars
James_C

From pick up to drop off this tour was A+. Everything went as planned, was on time (even early!) and professional. The lobby is great with lots of space, free lockers and clean restrooms. Our pilot was fantastic - and a comedian. Knows the sea well. Ninety minutes in a helicopter and we saw it all. Better than expected. Seems expensive until you go, then realize it was all a good value. Nothing was second rate - everything was first class.

Everything went smooth from hotel pick up to, the trip itself and the pilot. The Grand Canyon tour with 5Star helicopter service was excellent especially the knowledge of the pilot who told us everything about the canyon.

Morning Dam/Canyon Tour

Professionally run operation (driver a bit late for pick up, but we were made aware. Good communication). Sites were amazing! The route flown allowed for great views of the Hoover Dam from the west and East. Flying into the Canyon was incredible. Pilot, "Mad Dog", extremely knowledgeable, passionate and colorful. On the downside, super hot day and the seating very tight for 6 Adults.

Everyone and the crew were so nice and made our families experience one to remember forever. Our pilot “Mad Dog” was so informative and funny. Learning the history behind what we were all seeing was priceless. The views were amazing and the refreshments at the end were a nice touch! Totally Recommend!!

Nice experience overall, I didn’t like that 6 people in flight !! The front seated get better view while the backseats will get some view issues. If you relay on luck then you might be in the front seat otherwise enjoy tied and little view in the backseats.

It was a great trip, but be warned you can end up being assigned a middle seat. Good luck taking any photos if you do. And it costs the same as a front seat too.

An amazing trip that made our holiday! From pick up (although this was changed from our hotel Palazzo to treasure island.. no biggie though just a little walk) to drop off, the whole experience was well organised. The flight was amazing and the pilot made us all feel comfortable and relaxed, with lots of interesting info along the way. Everyone was friendly and our minibus driver went out of his way to accommodate our needs by dropping us at a different part of the strip for us to continue our sight seeing. I would 100% recommend to family and friends.

A Vegas Must!

Stop looking at other tours and just book this one! Without a doubt it was well worth it and the whole experience. One annoying thing to note is that, they did say they would pick us up from our hotel which was the Plazzo, however we had to walk to Treasure Island. They said this was down to works, however they didn’t affect other cars or buses so still not sure on why that was an issue to them. The process was nice and easy and they did contact us to let us know the plan etc. We had Mad Mike and he is just by far an asset to this company. He’s knowledge and experience made us all feel at ease and we got some great views with plenty of fun commentary along the way. Don’t think about it and just book it!.

Unpleasant trip
Paula_B
, May 2022
The helicopter was old, the weather was really bad and windy and the company should never have done the flight. Whole trip unpleasant.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Paula, Thank you for your review. Please know that our Airbus helicopters recently underwent new interiors so your remark of "old" is untrue. As for the wind, we have an impeccable safety record and would cancel any flight that would pose a safety risk. It is unfortunate that your experience was less than exceptional due to weather which we are unable to control yet will always make a safe determination if a flight will operate.

Good flight, but it I was too cramped. The views were limited from the back row, and I wish we could have had more opportunities for a pictures.

Thank you for your review. Seat assignment in the helicopter is based on weight & balance. Private photo flights are available for $699.00 including private SUV Las Vegas Resort hotel pickup and drop-off.

From start to finish we we’re looked after impeccably. Everything was spick and span. From the driver of the Minibus to the lady that checked us in and staff that escorted us to the helicopter we could t have been looked after any better. The pilot was exceptional and very knowledgeable and made the whole experience memorable thank you.
