Truly fantastic experience from start to finish. We were picked up at our hotel by a large limo, taken direct to the heliport, shown a safety video and then we were off. The helicopter ride was smooth and views nothing short of spectacular, our pilot, Stuart was very friendly and knowledgable and kept us informed where we were and what to look out for. We then had a champagne picnic and time to take some photos in the canyon before flying back to our limo which waiting to take us back to the hotel. Overall i can’t recommend this experience enough, words and photos do not do justice to the spectacular scenery.

This was a great trip and highly recommend this trip. Having visited by car and then the helicopter makes it memorable. Matt was a fantastic pilot. Seeing lake Mead by air is amazing and didn’t realize how big it really is

All said and done, it's was a good night. However, there was multiple frustrations, running a half a mile in uncomfortable shoes, misunderstandings and barely missing some time lines. Great idea, poor execution and communication though. Positives: -Dinner is fantastic and is enough to get two big eaters, full. For an additional cost at the restaurant you can do a wine pairing with a sommelier. I highly recommend it. -Limousine ride to and from helipad is a fun touch, although maybe a little cheesy in my opinion. -Helicopter ride is exciting, the pilots do a great job of staying low and pointing things out. Detractors: -They do NOT pick you up from your hotel. They pick you up from the restaurant. That was not clear to us on the ad and itinerary. Unfortunately, we were waiting for our ride to dinner and it never came, that put us way behind for the rest of the night (it was quicker to run a half mile to the restaurant then get an Uber). -After dinner, you have to go find the limo in time, before it takes off. If you're not familiar with Vegas, give yourself at least 30 min to walk over and find it. -The limo ride and flight is not private. You ride/fly with 4 other people. Not a bad experience per se, just be prepared for that. -The flight is not very long, maybe 15 min start to finish? Worth it though in my opinion, any longer might have been boring? Just don't expect you're going on an hour long ride. Suggestions for management: -Make it clear to provide your own transportation to the restaurant. -Provide a map of how to get from the restaurant to the limo parking, with time lines. If these two things had been done, I would give 5 stars. The added stress of getting behind and not knowing where to go, was a big fly in the ointment. I miss I could do it over again the right way, but hopefully this will help somebody else out, so they can have a truely enjoyable time. Gg

The entire experience was amazing…from pick up at hotel to drop off. Everyone was very professional and courteous. The pilot did an awesome job guiding us throughout the tour. He was very knowledgeable. The views and vistas were spectacular. Highly recommend this tour company. It is worth the $$$$.
