We did the Grand Canyon Helicopter Floor Landing w/ Limo ride on Sept. 9 at 9:00. The communication from booking to the pickup was spot on. The limo driver was on time and called to say he was waiting and was polite, The Customer Service reps at the facility were pleasant and professional. We were assigned to Ally out Helicopter Pilot/Captain and I'm happy that we were. She was upbeat, enthusiastic, professional and excellent at her job. It was obvious that she likes what she does. The ride was awesome and comfortable and she pointed out and described things along the way. We enjoyed the entire experience and the views of the Canyon were spectacular and breathtaking. Everyone on board had the same sentiments. Overall it was an amazing experience and I'm glad we did it.

The pilot although fairly new was knowledgeable about the are and took his time explaining different view as we hovered over the mountains and Vegas strip. I have been to Vegas about once a year for the last 5 years and this was the first time seeing it I mean really seeing it as a whole. I highly recommend taking the tour. It’s a little pricey but you will never have the chance to see it this way from any airplane going over the area. Beautiful views. Great company from the pilot and others riding with us.

Hi Kevin, We agree! The best way to see the Grand Canyon West Rim and the Las Vegas Strip is by helicopter. We are pleased that you enjoyed your experience and we hope to see you again soon! Thank you for your review.

We booked with GC Flight when we were in Vegas in February 2020 (sorry for the delayed review!). Kalen was our pilot, and from start to finish this was a FANTASTIC experience. We were picked up at our hotel in a limo and arrived quickly at the hangar. It was an easy check-in process and then very shortly we were given a safety demonstration and escorted into the helicopter. The flight over the Hoover Dam and into the Grand Canyon was phenomenal – the scenery was unbelievable. When we landed, we had a gorgeous view of the Colorado River. We even had some snacks and champagne – the perfect top off to a beautiful destination. Kalen was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We have already recommended GC Flight to our friends who are planning to travel to Vegas – so so worth it.

This was the worst experience of my life. My family and I took this trip when the temperature was 117 degrees. The place assured us there was ample air conditioning in the helicopter but that was not the case. It was so hot we felt like we were being cooked, literally. We were so miserable we couldn't wait to get off the tour. This was the worst waste of money I've even spent.
As a side note, this is extremely dangerous, especially if you are older or on medication that makes you susceptible to the heat. You can cancel within 48 hours of the tour and I suggest if you have reservations you cancel them. It is very irresponsible of them to continue these tours in this heat.
I have been on quite a few helicopter rides in various cities and this one was very bumpy, small and loud. Not the first class style ride I was looking forward to for $500 a person. Then we paid an extra $150 to have the front seats which were probably worse because the sun just cooked us in the glass bubble.
Might be fun in a cooler month but certainly not in the summer.

Hi Rigdon, Papillon Helicopters, with whom you flew, called all guests 24 hours prior to departure and gave each an option to cancel or reschedule due to the heat. We understand that many guests, like yourselves, chose to fly in spite of the heat, as it is a once in a lifetime trip. We will pass your feedback along to Papillon Helicopters' Guest Relations Department. We here at GC Flight appreciate your business and we take all customer commentary very seriously. Kathy, GM

Cost for a Canyon floor tour $388 per person. When I tried to reserve an add on service fee of $30 per person plus $30 per person prime time fee (for choosing AM time) then another $30 per person transport fee. Transporting is part of itinerary and should be included in cost. No thanks. This is a joke.

Would give a 0 if I could. Booked the Valley of Fire Helicopter tour. Company calls 48 hours before scheduled trip and cancels. Reason given is that "it's part of a state park and they don't want us to fly on that day". Conveniently all other tour were booked for us to switch to something else. One other offer was made and the company gave us $30/person discount which was pretty insulting. Then found out that the helicopter ride wasn't even round trip. They bussed you back to Vegas.

Don't do business with this group!!

Hi Whitney, Unfortunately, the Valley of Fire had a private wedding the day of your tour and we were unable to accommodate you. I reached out with an apology by phone and offered a different tour. We were able to move you the Red Rock Sunset Champagne Landing with Neon Strip Views, however, at the same price. We were happy to do this for you as it was your 10th Anniversary. There does seem to be a misunderstanding with the tour procedure for the Valley of Fire Landing. We do not fly out to the Valley of Fire and then drive guest back. The helicopter flies all guests to the Valley of Fire, lands for 30 minutes with champagne toast/photo op and flies back into the private Las Vegas terminal. We utilize ground transportation for pick up and drop off as a convenient means of getting guests to our terminal which is located just off the Las Vegas Strip. We then return them to their hotel after the tour. Thank you for your feedback! I hope you had a Happy Anniversary and we hope to see your again soon!

The tour itself was with 5 Star Helicopter tours and it was great! However, my booking is a different story. Before I booked the tour, I was told that if we chose to be picked up, they would pick us up in a Limo. It was for my daughters birthday so I thought that would be a nice touch and was willing to pay the extra. I was also under the impression that the tour would be just our party. We ended up being picked up in a shuttle van with 7 other people. We were the first to be picked up and they had two other stops, so we spent almost an hour on the shuttle before heading to the airport. We also found out there would be 3 other people joining us on the helicopter tour. I do understand they need to make money on the tour but it would have been nice to know ahead of time what I was paying for. I would have chosen to drive myself or made plans to do something else. So before you make your reservation make sure you know everything you are in forl.

Hi TDK, We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the the Night Strip Flight! Limousine service is standard with our Helicopter Floor Landing Tour with Picnic and Limousine only. Limousine service is available for an additional fee on all other tours. Our complimentary transport to and from your hotel is in a luxury Mercedes Sprinter Van, however. Our reservations agents do inform all guests that each helicopter seat 6 guests and we do our best to fill each flight. This means you will be flying with other guests. A private flight may be arranged with the purchase of all 6 seats in the helicopter, if preferred. Again, we are glad that you enjoyed the splendor of the Strip at night and thank you for your feedback!

GC Flight is a 3rd party marketing company. The actual company is 5 Star Helicopter. GC flight service was horrible, they rescheduled the flight and didn't tell me. I asked for the manager to call me and was blown off. There are fee's that could be more transparent with GC Flight, prime time fee, transportation fee and another one I never understood. The flight itself was great, go to 5 Star Helicopter direct, save money and better service.

Hi Krec1965, We are not a marketing company. We are a discount tour agency. Five Star Helicopters, with whom you flew, is one of our many trusted partners. It was Five Star Helicopters who rescheduled your flight, unfortunately. We are very transparent regarding our fees on our website and over the phone. We take great pride in our top notch customer service and had we been notified by Five Star Helicopters regarding the change in your tour, we would have reached out to you. Please feel free to contact me directly on our guest services line. Thank you for your feedback. Kathy, GM

We had an amazing trip. Booking was easy. Great communication. We were picked up from our hotel on time and brought back after our flight. The helicopter ride had amazing views of Hoover Dam, Lake Meade, and the Grand Canyon. This was a way better option than renting a car and driving 9hours round trip! Our pilot was knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

The helicopter tour was the highlight of our trip. And, as a private pilot, I was impressed with the focus on safety in all phases of the flight. Wonderful sights in the Grand Canyon, sunset view, puffy white cumulus clouds, and a fun and knowledgeable pilot. Next time I go to Las Vegas, I'll take the tour again, but I think I'll go for a tour that includes a landing. It would be awesome to video a decent into the canyon.
