About
The problem with many other Grand Canyon helicopter tours is you may only spend a few minutes up in the air; however, this extended West Rim helicopter tour gives you much more flight time. Soar above the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill, and, of course, the Grand Canyon, while covering more ground than a bus or hiking tour would through the national park.

Every one connected with this experience was 5 star!! The gentleman that picked me up at my hotel was extremely friendly and we had a great chat. At the facility I was greeted and checked into my flight by a very sweet lady. Bill was the pilot on my flight. He also was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable of the area we flew over explaining in great detail it's history. All in all it was a very exciting experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone visiting Las Vegas and wishing to do a helicopter tour!!

5 Stars service starting from the reservation call.

The location was excellent. The helicopter is in excellent conditions (interior and exterior).

The pilot (Ray) gave us an amazing flight with his narrations and a great helicopter control for a smooth flight.

The service, professionalism, and overall thrill was breathtaking from start to finish. The company picked us up in a professional charter vehicle and took us to Boulder city where we got on board a 6 person helicopter and took off. The whole flight was about an hour and 15 minutes. Miguel (our pilot) was informative and personable. I cant recommend this company enough. 5 Star Flights treated us like the most important customers to ever walk through their doors.

We had a fabulous time. The company was very professional picked us up punctual at our hotel, we had a few more pick ups then took about 30 mins to the airport. When arriving at the airport we were offered refreshments and then were shown to our pilot and helicopter. The pilot was knowledgeable about the area and encouraged questions. The journey was just over the 70 mins and then we didn’t wait long before transported back to hotel. An amazing experience which costed less then most tours on offer. Good value for money, would recommend

This was the first time riding in a helicopter. I never thought it was that cool but the view of the mountains are breathtaking. Seriously one of the most beautiful experiences I ever had. $800 for 2 people seems pricey until you see how beautiful this is. Totally worth it!!!!
All crew was very friendly and our pilot Mike “Mad Dog” David was great! He made this ride so fun. Do not take it personal if you don’t get the front seats they have to distribute the weight but anywhere you sit in the aircraft you will have great views. Totally exceeded our expectations!!

What a great experience. Fast and friendly staff. Pilot- Jimmy was amazing, information and entertaining. Made the entire trip much more enjoyable and never a lack of details. Easy check in, not weight shaming, like some other places do and light refreshments was a bonus with this friendly chap, Joseph. This company "rocks" as the drive Ed was able to accommodate our request to be dropped off at the airport rather than the hotel. Just great!!!!!

These guys fitted us in at the last minute due to another one scamming us.
Picked up in a nice vehicle and taken to airport.
Pilot was friendly and knowledgable.
Unfortunately it is what it is, a fly through the Grand Canyon. When you’ve seen one part of it, it’s all samey-samey (the pilot said this!) Would much have preferred we landed within the canyon for photos, instead, we could only take photos through the windows of the helicopter which aren’t great. Was more frustrating to hear he had landed it before within the canyon.
Still, it’s one of those things you have to do. As it’s the first question everybody asks when you’ve been to Vegas.
You can communicate via headsets in the helicopter, but all our ears kept popping, so we chose not to.
At $369, it’s not cheap, but they know how to make money out of a naturally created landscape

We had a lovely Trip with Brandon, a great Entertainer, but not too much over the top we enjoyed the flight above the West rim of Grand Canyon. Though expensive it a once in a Life time view of the scenery. I can very much recommend the Trip itself as the company, too. Organized, attentive and everything went smoothly.

Wow! Amazing sights and an amazing experience. I am afraid of heights and thought it would be scary to be in a helicopter. I was never scared and felt very safe and secure. Briac was our pilot. He was skilled, professional, and personable. We had a great time! We went during the pandemic and wore masks on the flight as we couldn't social distance.

This experience was great! First time traveler to Las Vegas and was overwhelmed with finding public transportation. Have no fear as 5 Star Helicopter Rides picks you up from the hotel bring you to and from the Helipad. All included! Once we arrived we were weighed for safety weight distribution of the aircraft, watched a safety video and were promptly greeted by the best part, our pilot, Mr. “Mad Dog” Davis.
Our pilot was so much fun. He narrated the flight and even started out the takeoff with Creedance’s “Fortunate Son”. The trip blew my mind and was breathtaking. If you’re on the fence on where to book them or not, DO IT! You won’t be disappointed!
