Indeed the $20 helicopter ride is tempting, you would regret being here if you are interacting with the only lady working there(in her 50's). She is full of attitude and would treat you as harshly. I felt that I may be mistaken about her attitude, but people interacting with her said the same thing. Worst customer experience. Pros: $20 for... More

Friendly staff, it's a bit like a conveyor belt though and the driver up the hill goes too fast for nervous passengers in cars! The $29 ride is literally 2 mins in the air, $59 gets you just over 5 mins and goes over the Dam and Lake Mead really enjoyed it but they do expect tips. Don't expect to... More

Took the $29 dollars ride, 2 minute trip. Really short but my first helicopter and it was fun! Staff was nice, just ask when you sign up how many groups are in front of you.

Very enjoyable. We took the five minute flight { some bonus time was in there too} , over and around the dam and lake mead. Very impressed with the staff and their knowledge. I avoid things like Ferris wheels, trams, etc, but this was so different! What a pleasant surprise. Will definitely do it again if in the area. There... More

We took the route over the Hoover Dam for $60 per person and it was awesome! It is about a 5 minute ride but felt much longer while in the helicopter. Also the pilot gave us an extra minute and a half ;) The staff was all very nice and "real". The lady who does the safety overview is Dam... More

I surprised my 9 year old son with a ride in a helicopter, and it was a blast for the both of us! Along the way to Las Vegas, the Dam Helicopter Company is located in Boulder City, on US – 93, right in the parking lot of the Hacienda Hotel & Casino. We took the 10 minute ride which... More

The $29 helicopter tour will grab your eye for sure but there are quite a few value deals to choose from. We chose the "Hoover Dam" tour and were extremely pleased with your purchase. Everyone made sure we were properly informed and enjoyed our tour. I'd definitely do it again!

I have been driving many times from Las Vegas to Grand Canyon and I have always wanted to make a stop here to check it out, So close to the main road and with lots of parking. So I took my family here last time and we booked the long tour cost about 100 USD/adult. Great staff and very good... More

My husband and I decided to go on the 2 minute helicopter tour.....while it was nothing super spectacular....it was a fun two minutes, esp if you have never been in a copter before...you get to zoom around a few mountains...not bad for 30$ a piece....
