The tour was great from start to finish. Picked up promptly from my hotel and taken to the airport. The pilot Vince was very knowledgeable and made the trip really fun. Great views throughout the flight. Would definitely recommend.
This tour was very good. A long helicopter ride, so much better than the fifteen minutes you usually get. Could appreciate the size of the Hoover Dam from above. Also saw the Grand Canyon West Rim which was okay. The pilot was funny and informative.
This is a must-do experience if you've every even thought about wanting to see the Big Ditch as our pilot Matt referred to it. The flight itself is amazing, but then add Matt's narration and insider knowledge and a few wild stories, well, that just takes it over the top. A very interesting, informative, and a truly fun experience that we will never forget. WELL DONE!
Great flight over the Canyon - even though I did a different tour, than this one, due to cancellation.
Experience was great! Staff incredible! Pilot Darin was very knowledge and fun.
Beautiful experience. Matt our pilot was very informative.
If in Vegas, you must add experience to your bucket list.
Well worth it. Marilyn
Great trip. Excellent pilot, and Darren was so knowledgeable. Would highly recommend.
This was my second canyon flight and definitely the best! The canyon kind of speaks for itself, but what really made it great this time was the perfect combination of excellent machines and a great pilot. Alex clearly knew his stuff and it's always a pleasure to fly with a pilot who enjoys their trade so much. Even my 70 year old mother had a great time and she normally hates flying!
This trip was awesome,from meeting our pilot Tyler Heundl fabulous sense of humour to a magical trip over Hoover Dam lake Mead and the Grand Canyon.
Superb. It was a great family experience and we would highly recommend five star helicopters. Our pilot Scott, made it a memorable and informative flight. All the staff we dealt with were excellent.
Excellent! One of the highlights of our visit to Vegas. Our pilot Matt made us all very comfortable, and he obviously knew his stuff!
Exceptional experience, our pilot Alex could not provide a better tour than he did. Absolutely would do this again. Everyone involved from shuttle pickup to the air field finish, OUTSTANDING.
Absolutely brilliant. If you want to see the grand canyon do it in a helicopter.
Our trip was with Travis who was very informative and fun to be with.
Absolutely stunning - pilot Alex Schmitt was excellent. A full 70 minutes in the air taking in the views of the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon. Thoroughly recommend this tour.
The trip was amazing and a must do if you can. Transfer to the airfield was simple and easy to arrange prior to departure. The helicopter was comfortable and our pilot (Michelle) was very friendly and provided an interesting and knowledgable commentary and conversations whilst on the tour.
So now I am home and reflecting on my credit card bill it shows it was 500 for the 2 of us and frankly that was a bargain as I had expected this to be much more expensive, given the option of an 8hr round trip by bus or car this is certainly the better choice.
We both agreed that this operator lived up to its name as this was indeed a 5 star service. The pickup was on time, the whole operation very professional and there was no pressure sell to buy additional items such as photos or videos. The safety debrief was clear and they even offered travel sickness tablets and free drinks for anyone who needed it at their location in Boulder City both before and after the flight 20 min air conditioned mini bus trip.
We were fortunate enough to be seated in the front of the helicopter with 4 in the back but the view was pretty spectacular from all angles and I felt the flight was actually more like 90 minutes compared to the 70 advertised. I believe some of the shorter flights may land in the canyon but I was happy to have more flight time as it presented a great chance to take pictures and video.
If you are booking online you need to also call the local number for this operator 24hrs in advance to confirm details, including your weight but again we did this Sunday evening and they were still open as this really is a professional operation, don't forget to take photo ID with you on the day of your flight.
Please be aware that July is Monsoon season and there can be thunder storms which may lead to cancellations, so my advice would be if this is on your bucket list book it early and don't leave it to the end of your visit to Vegas as we had to reschedule due to adverse weather and delay traveling to Palm Springs for half a day. Luckily at the point of the initial pick up the operator made this clear so we used that time to drive to Hoover Dam as its literally 30 minutes away and flew the following day.
Expect to see lots of other helicopters flying around the same area, which in itself is an interesting sight but the pilot was in radio contact on a regular basis to confirm we were kept well away from other traffic.
The helicopter is small and offers excellent visibility and although we were traveling at over 100 knots it felt like 20 mph and was a lot less top gun than I had anticipated, thus you seemed to have plenty of time for questions and photos.
All passengers have headphones and microphones and we found the senior pilot had an excellent knowledge of the area and the geology, which made for a very educational visit, I can't imagine a trip to the visitor centre perched on the cliff top would offer the same amount of information if you visited by car.
So would I use 5 star again or would I recommend them, absolutely yes and on reflection this was the highlight of our 2 week holiday we covered almost 2000 miles in our Mustang and visited LA, Morro Bay, San Francisco, Yosemite, Independence, Vegas and Palm Springs but this experience is one not to be missed folks.
Absolutely fantastic tour! Great way to see the Grand Canyon and Hoover dam! Avoids taking a full day out of your Vegas trip with the long drive and the views are incredible! This is the way to see it! Highly recommend!
