          Poor customer service
          My original booking time got moved up due to inefficient amount of bookings. I agree to come earlier. My check in time is 10:30pm I arrive at 10:26pm to be told they still don’t have enough bookings and my flight is cancelled. I understand not having enough booking but call and let me know half an hour before not 2 mins before. Worst customer service. Do not book with these guys.

          Super tour, worth every penny!
          A helicopter tour and seeing the Grand Canyon were both bucket list items for me. This trip was great! My husband and I took the 90 minute tour that also saw the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. This was an excellent tour! Our pilot was great and had a lot of great information along the way. I highly recommend this tour group, and our pilot Ethan!

          Fantastic flight tour of Hoover Dam & Grand Canyon, 5 Star was the best. Booking was easy, pilot Mike "Mad Dog" Davis was great, knowledgeable and entertaining. Drivers for pick up & delivery very friendly, nice clean vehicles. Staff, crew & pilots, first rate.

          Good but not great
          We booked the flight at 10:45pm but we had to wait an hour to get in. It seems not professional to do business. A staff called us for confirmation was not clear information. When we requested repeat she didn’t do a good job.

          Amazing excursion a must do!
          Absolutely amazing experience! I booked on the day I went & the service was just fabulous. I called straight after booking & they already had my details, no need to wait for systems to update. They confirmed everything with me. Luckily my pick up was only 45mins before my flight. The whole experience was effortless & efficient. Such good value for money!

          Sweet Flight Attendant hands out extra special Sweets!
          Just wanted to send a note about the marvelous flight attendant we had on our flight back from Boise to KC last night. TAYLOR HOUSER was her name. She was so astute to customer's needs and questions, and even remembered that I was gluten sensitive for the snack options, so she returned with a handfull of quinoa chocolate crackers for me to take home! How sweet! Both of our attendants that flight were kind, upbeat, responsive, and gracious. - Dr. and Mrs. James C. Brown, Columbia, Missouri

          Awesome Experience!
          This was a very nice experience. Loved the views and how smooth the ride was. The only thing I wish that was different is the amount of time that was spent in the air, the ride took approx. 17 mins. But overall, I would recommend it!

          Brilliant
          Had an amazing experience on this tour. We got delayed with the pick from the hotel but other than that it was a smooth experience. Our pilot was called Mad Dog.. he was lovely and talked us through and guided very well. The view of the Canyon was breathtaking. As 2 of our party were celebrating birthday.. Mad Dog gave us a glass of champagne each. Loved every minute of this experience!

          Loved it!!!
          Loved it! I live in Vegas and when my friends or family visit from the UK and want to do a helicopter flight I always recommend 5 Star helicopters. I had my oldest friend and his wife visit me for the first time so we all took a flight over the strip. I had done it before, but it never gets boring. They loved it and thought the views were amazing. The pilot was great pointing out the various sights. Other family members have done the Grand Canyon flights on previous visits and every time reported an amazing experience. Thank you 5 Star. 10 out of 10 from me , my family and friends.

          Memories missed due to miscalculation
          The helicopter ride was very memorable. But, we had an interesting start. We booked our trip on Wednesday to go for our trip on Saturday. We are from out of state. We flew into Vegas Friday night. When we arrived to vegas, I received text messages and calls confirming my appointment for 3 (including me). We confirmed. Then shortly as we were eating I received another text and call from 5 star helicopter tour. They said they did calibrations and said our weight was an issue. Even though we put our weight down when we booked it days before. And we confirmed everything before this call. When we showed up, I felt like that wasn’t the case. Our helicopter holds 6 people not including the pilot. There was one seat open. . One of our loved ones did not get to experience this experience due to this event. A reminder eve time I think of this trip will be due to this. My mom and I took the trip and our pilot was wonderful and the sites were great.

          A true 5-star experience
          I had an awesome experience with a 5-star helicopter company from pick-up to drop-off. Our pilot was Mike and he gave us an amazing tour. Thank you!!!

          Up and Away
          This was our first event upon arriving the city of Las Vegas, and thought it would be great to see the city at night from above. We have never been on an helicopter. We had a new driver, he did not share the landmarks we were flying above. All he did was drive the helicopter, but seeing the lights was amazing!

        The flight over the Grand Canyon was incredible. All the sights and history along the way were just as impressive as the canyon itself. Our pilot did a fabulous job of pointing out things to see and telling us about them.

        The kayaking on the Colorado River with Balzin’ Paddles was 10/10 best activity ever! Our guide Reid was phenomenal! His knowledge of the area and history were incredible. The views are amazing, and Reid made the trip even better.

        An amazing full day of Fathers Day adventure! First we were picked up directly from our hotel then taken to the helicopter airport. From there we were checked in by Gloria who had us laughing and gave us all the details we needed. The flight was amazing and we captured some beautiful pictures and the pilot was a fabulous tour guide. We returned to the airport and were shuttled to the kayak launch at the river.
        The kayaking was serene and again, amazing views! We made a couple stops for short hikes and great pictures.
        My suggestion would be book early and definitely go! There were families with kids, couples, and singles. Everyone had a great time. The kayaking part is moderately physical. It was only my second time ever kayaking, so pretty easy for a novice.

        Delighted we chose to do this. The whole day was amazing from start to finish from the hotel pick up to drop off. Everyone was so polite and great fun. The helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon was incredible and the view are out of this world. Delighted we spent extra to see it from the air instead of a coach trip. To fully appreciate the canyon it’s gotta be from the air and it’s gotta be 5 Star Helicopter Tours. The kayaking with Blazing Paddles was also incredible, our guide Melissa was outta this world, full of information and put everyone as ease. The views on the Colorado river are brilliant and the kayaking is easy and we were lucky we had a really fun group too. Then great food served on the trip back to Vegas and dropped to our hotel. This tour and these people rock.

        Booked this trip prior to our visit to LV. Our package included the morning 90 minute flight into the Grand Canyon and a half day kayak trip on the Colorado River and a great lunch back at the 5 Star luxury heliport. All the transportation to and from our hotel and venues was seamless and very comfortable in luxury vans.
        "Mad Dog" was our pilot! Awesome guy! Tons of knowledge and very professional. Played an awesome soundtrack during our flight that ended on point as we touched back down.
        Flying below the rim of the canyon walls was completely unforgetable! I highly recommend them.

        This was a really fun day! We chose the Kayak option.

        Pickup/drop off: Pickup from our hotel was at 5:55am, then we had a few more pickups at other locations and then a very short drive to the airport. You get checked in and store your belongings in a locker at the offices for the helicopter tour. You can get them back after the copter for the second half of the day. We were dropped off back at our hotel by 3:30pm after everything wrapped up.

        Helicopter tour: This was fantastic! They put 6 people in the copter, 4 in the back and 2 up front next to the pilot. We were lucky to be up front so we had a great view! It’s a 90 minute round trip flight. Our pilot was good and gave us factoids as we flew. Honestly, the views were enough to keep us occupied for hours.

        Kayaking: The kayaking was fun. It’s about a 3 hour total kayak experience (4 miles) with a short walk/hike in the middle for some great views/photos. You can choose a single or tandem kayak. The only let down was that we didn’t go at the correct time of day for the Emerald Cove to be glowing like we expected/was advertised. We also had to wait in line for quite a bit to get into the non-emerald cove. It was still a nice experience, but wasn’t what we were expecting. The Colorado River was still a gorgeous blue green though. The kayaking guides had snacks and water available throughout the trip. A boxed lunch that you choose from several options in the morning was also provided after the kayak tour finished. I’m not sure if the boat option got a full lunch or just snacks.

        Overall, definitely worth the money. If you have an option to go later in the day, try that as you may get lucky with the Cove!

        We only had a few days in Vegas so we were looking for an activity to squeeze as much out as possible. The combo helicopter plus kayak definitely fit the bill. The helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon was one of those experiences everyone should try once. Our flight was early morning so the sun was at an angle that highlighted the Grand Canyon in such a beautiful way. Our pilot Ray was great and made sure everyone had a good time. After the flight we were shuttled to the launch site for the kayaking. Our kayaking guide Seth made the trip feel like it was a couple of buddies having a relaxing trip down the Colorado river. If you are looking to get a lot done in a short amount of time, this combo activity is a great choice.

        The helicopter offered beautiful views, sadly taking photos was challenging as they squeezed 6 people in. It was a very uncomfortable flight which took away from the enjoyment of the experience. I expected this to be the highlight of the trip sadly it was not.

        The kayak float turned out to be the best part of the trip.

        As others have mentioned the communication could have been better, made for a hasty start to the day when you plan for one time but it’s really another.

        The whole trip was wonderful. Chris was a great pilot who had many anecdotal stories of the area. Jamaica and Nicole of Blazing Paddles were outstanding river guides as well. The Emerald cave was a beautiful experience. Worth the money.

        The views were amazing, the pilot was great. We had a combined helicopter tour followed by rafting with another company. The rafting was great as well. However, we were to get lunch, snacks and drinks. It was a 5:45 am pick up before restaurants are open for breakfast. There was a back and forth between the companies about who was transferring us and when and we didn’t get lunch until 4:30 pm. The second company provided snacks: cereal bars, crackers and gummies. We didn’t get an apology and we didn’t eat the lunch as it was too late and close to supper. We paid $1823.59 Canadian for two people. My advice is to make sure you have some food as the day was overshadowed because we were so hungry.

        What a fantastic day from start to finish, we started early and drove to the airport to board the helicopter for the trip over the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the Grand Canyon absolutely magical. Then we took a bus the the base of the Hoover Dam for the start of the boat trip down the Colorado River. A truly amazing day one that I will never forget and well worth it but the photos don't do it justice.
