We were so incredibly thrilled with this tour. Since we had never seen the Grand Canyon before, we were utterly speechless with it's beauty. Our 5 Star tour guide, Captain Mad Dog, was very informative, enlightening, and educational. His stories of adventure peeked our interest, and we could have listened to him for days on end. He made everyone feel comfortable in the helicopter, in order to avoid motion sickness "no texting, no Tweeting" lol. I took so many photos with my phone camera, but they do little justice for the actual view. Hands down, best experience of my life!!

The helicopter ride to and from the Grand Canyon was spectacular. My issues concern the stops along the bus route as well as the number of available buses. There were an insufficient number of buses to move helicopter passengers along to the designated stops. We waited over an hour for a bus. I understand CDC and State regulations concerning infection control. Buses were at half capacity; therefore, there needs to be extra buses. While the stops were located in spectacular areas of the Canyon, we were charged for entering one of the spots. When we returned to the heliport, free wine, beer and soft drinks were offered complimentary. The snacks, though, were a dollar apiece. Considering the amount of money spent on the excursion, snacks should be complimentary as well. Personally, I would make everything complimentary at each stop. People are on vacation.

Had never flown in a chopper, but this was THE. BOMB! Fantastic experience with professional pilots and EC-130 helicopters. They land you down by the river for a boat tour and then chopper you back up about an hour later. Total ride down to the river is about 15 minutes. As a former air traffic controller, I'm familiar with flying in the cockpit with pilots, and these guys were fabulous.

Most definitely worth the $$.

No other way see experience the Grand Canyon. Highly recommend! 5 star is an awesome company to book through. Well worth every dollar. Our "Vacation hero" Mike, was the absolute best and most entertaining pilot/tour guide! If they take requests, I'd reccomend you ask for Mike "Mad Dog" Davis. Just took the experience to a whole new level! Book it, you will not regret!

Pilot was a great aviator and knowledgeable about geology of the Grand Canyon. I would highly recommend as a family event. We plan returning with granddaughters next year and taking them on the tour with the same pilot, MD.

The 27th of February is both my wife and my birthdays as well as our wedding anniversary. To do something memorable was our goal. Our Grand Canyon West Rim helicopter tour with 5 Star helicopters serving Las Vegas area helped us achieve that goal. The service to and from our resort as well as our flight was top notch in every respect. The staff at the airport was very friendly and professional. Our pilot was extremely proficient at his job to say the least. He not only had extensive knowledge of his craft and how to operate it but was an extremely superb and safe pilot as well. He made it seem like we were sitting on our sofa at home, only with the floor a long ways away. He was also very knowledgeable about his surroundings at all times and was constantly giving narrative about it as we flew over or around it. He definitely gave my wife and I a trip we will never forget and helped make our annibirthsaryday a memorable one. Our thanks go out to 5 Star Helicopters and in particular Travis Boeker our pilot. Rest assured that my wife and I will most highly and enthusiastically recommend a five Star helicopter tour to everyone we know and probably some that we do not know as well when ever and where ever we can. Thanks to all at 5 Star from June and Tom.

We took this trip in the morning of 8th August with two of our friends and shared the experience with another couple. A fantastic trip which was made into a brilliant experience by our pilot, Sterling, who was very informative and had a great sense of humour. Highly recommended. We were picked up at the MGM Grand, where we were staying and dropped back there at the end of the morning.

5Star honestly deserves 5 stars
You have many Grand Canyon helicopter options from LV, but the 5star is likely the only one that deserves a 5-start
