We booked the helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon with 5 star Helicopters. We were lucky enough to have Mad Dog Mike as our pilot - he made the whole experience fantastic - he shared with us his incredible knowledge of the history of the canyon and kept us entertained throughout the flight. He was a fantastic pilot and took us in touching distance of the canyon walls to see it in its true splendour. The memory of this trip will live with us forever. Huge thanks to Mad Dog, and all the team

Best Vegas experience !
Martin_R, Jan 2023
What a great trip from start to finish . Good comms from the company and picked us up on time at the hotel . If you can handle heights then this is the best place to see the hoover dam, the grand canyon and the strip . Aaron was very informative and good pilot 🤠
Do This !
Bill_W, Jan 2023
Wonderful experience.; highly recommend Pilot Bill was great: entertaining, knowledgeable and of course very professional.
Early bird flight
Jason_B, Jan 2023
We done the early bird flight and got picked up from our hotel at 6:45. In order to find this out you have to call them to ask your collection time so make sure you have access to a phone the day before. The lady on the desk at the flight center was very abrupt and didn't allow you anytime to read a form she was asking you to sign. The flight itself was good, pilots were friendly, however it was hard to hear them over the headset which meant you couldn't really follow all the information he was giving you. I would still recommend as you get to see some amazing views a lot quicker then by car or bus.
Great view but bad tech!
Laura_E, Jan 2023
Unfortunately our headsets were not working for the entire flight so we missed all of the audio from the tour. The pilot mentioned there had been tech issues and it was fixed but never checked when we got on the plane. The view was amazing but we missed so much insights as to what we were looking at.
Great experience! Wonderful views. Chris was great.
Gregg_W, Jan 2023
Taking off from the airport and flying over the Canyon. Coming in over Vegas was cool as well. Would recommend highly
5 Star Cares!
Clint_H, Dec 2022
Wanted to do something unique and fun with my 22yr old son, who has never been to Las Vegas. What an experience, something both of us will never forget. Big shout out to our pilot, Eric! Thank you for making us all feel like part of the “family.”
Awesome Helicopter Tour!
John_M, Dec 2022
5-Star did a great job from hotel pickup to drop-off. The experience in the helicopter was awesome. The pilot shared a lot of information about the area as we traveled over it. I know the price seems high but it's much better than an airplane tour and well worth it!
Adam_N, Dec 2022
We debated whether to do this or not, as not cheap. But SO glad we did. Worth every cent. From being picked up at the hotel to being dropped back again, service was exceptional. As for the flight over the Canyon; what can I say. It was breathtaking. Nothing you've seen on TV or in pictures compares to the reality. If you're in two minds about doing this, I urge you to do it. You won't regret it.
Our pilot was wonderful!...
Cathy_D, Dec 2022

Laura_C, Dec 2022
We had such a fabulous time! Our pilot, Eric, was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour. The weather conditions made the ride a bit rough, but 5 Star did everything they could to accommodate us. The views are STUNNING! We will never forget it! Thank you 5 Star!

Loved our pilot, 'Mad Dog'. Fascinating raconteur who is equally adept at weaving old yarns as he is weaving through the two billion year old canyon walls. Breathtaking!
Adventure of a lifetime!
