Excellent tour, our pilot Kyle was absolutely an amazing pilot with incredible knowledge of the area. Highly recommended!
My husband and I went this morning for a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon. Eric was our pilot and he was fantastic and informative! High recommend!!!
Awesome people who run and work for this business, booked this trip by chance outside Treasure Island on the strip.
Helicopter tour was great!! Was a fun Experience! Elijah our pilot was amazing full of knowledge smooth ride!!! This was a MUST!!! We took some great pictures and soared over the Grand Canyon!
excellent! travis was a great guide! interesting and knowledgeable fun and engaging! loved it! he is charming
I did the "Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour, Above and Below the Rim Extended Air Tour - 70 Minutes". Absolutely amazing. Hotel pickup to the Boulder air port, easy and convenient. Our pilot Travis who resides locally was awesome, mixing the serious business of flying a helicopter with his own touch of amusing commentary as we flew over his favourite hiking grounds and the astounding geological formations both man made and natural. Travis even threw in some helicopter flying pointers, he was clearly passionate about the area and flying. The Grand Canyon and surrounding area is mind blowing but this flight put it on another level.
What an absolutely amazing experience. This is coming from someone who is terrified of flying. Our pilot Jimmy Long did an immaculate job touring our group touring us around Hoover Dam and beautiful canyons. He took his time answering our 15 million questions and make it a personal trip. Truly appreciated the experience and can honestly say that I might be over my flight freight. At least from a helicopter. Thank you Jimmy. Well worth the trip and then some. PS, shout out to the office staff. Made us feel welcome and super friendly.
Outstanding. 4 friends and I had an amazing experience with Jimmy, pilot extraordinaire at Five Star Helicopters. He masterfully guided us by the Hoover Dam, along the Colorado River and to the Grand Canyon. Knowledgeable. Full of personality and FUN. Jimmy delivered. You'll spend more time flying with service that is more personalized than the bigger companies. Of course it doesn't hurt to have a beautiful day. You'll marvel at the beautiful colors of Lake Mead and the Canyon. Simply spectacular to know that this wonder was created millions of years ago. You'll see the layers that tell the story of Earth's geological evolution and be transported in time to the land that was. I'd be remiss if I didn't mention Judy who helped with our reservation. Floyd for serving us post flight drinks and Warren who delivered us safely back to our hotel. But the real stars here were Jimmy and this wonderful experience. Thank you Five Star. And thank you Jimmy.
Mood - Adventure This was a day of celebration and I knew it must be done the way I like. BIG.. well nothing is bigger than a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon/ Lake Mead/ Hoover Damn/ and an inactive volcano. Our pilot Gehrig Smith was wonderful. He narrated the entire experience and was very personable. This made the whole experience that much more. Love great customer service!!!!! 5 Star Helicopters is pretty on point with their customer service, as I had to call to inquire re: where ground transportation was located. They offer complimentary shuttle from local major hotels. Depending on the package you get, snacks and drinks are either additional or included. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone wanting adventure or truly something different. Pricing is to be expected for the experience, and knowledge they provide
