5 Star Helicopters is a much needed addition to Vegas' attraction menu. John, Laila and team do an OUTSTANDING job on their VIP Strip Night Tour. They have designed a brand new terminal at North Las Vegas airport. Their Mercedes buses pick you up at your hotel and whisk you away to their NLV terminal for the night flight experience. Upon arrival you are greeted in a beautiful VIP terminal adorned with large aerial photos of Vegas, the Hoover Dam, and Grand Canyon. Guests are presented with a glass of champagne, weighed and then put into the luxurious helicopter by a very friendly pilot.

The tour is about 15 minutes from take-ff to touchdown. The thing that sets this strip flight apart from others is the fact that this one goes up one side of the strip and back down the other side, so no matter which side of the chopper you're sitting on, you get fantastic views. I was seated in the front which was phenomenal. Other tours only go up one side of the strip! Another cool feature is that they play groovy music into your headset during the tour while the pilot narrates the scenery.

I'm a local and even for me this was an amazing experience. I would suggest this tour for anyone visiting Vegas! They also do weddings. You can actually get married over the strip at night!

Kudos to 5 Star for this great new addition to their menu!

My son and I went on the last tour of the day, a 5pm departure, on March 19th. The staff were so professional and courteous. The waiting room was very comfortable. They offered us cold drinks and we didn't wait at all. They were very attentive and made us feel very special.

We loved the pilot, Mischa. She was a wealth of knowledge, but seemed genuinely interested in all the info she shared, so it made it very enjoyable. The ride was very smooth and I didn't feel worried, even though it was our fist ride in a helicopter. She told us what she was going to do each step of the way so we felt very secure with her. She was very confident and personable. The helicopter looked brand new, and the windows were so clean that you couldn't tell from my pictures that there was a window. The view was fabulous!

We got to land in the small airport near Grand Canyon and check out the gift shop. Very quaint place, owned by the local tribe, with lots of souveniers and Indian ware.

When we got back, they offered us more cold drinks, including beer/wine. We felt very taken care of. And to top if off, we got a wonderful memento or our trip--a matted picture in front of the helicopter. Very professional--the photog made sure no one was standing behind the helicopter when he took the picture.

All in all, I'd say "5-Star" is a great name for this company, because I didn't see anything they could have done better. We felt like VIPs the whole time. I would DEFINITELY recommend this experience to anyone interested.

Our helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon on March 13th with 5 Star was fantastic. Starting with the smooth minivan ride to the kind attention we received at the heliport to the most amazing helicopter flghts; it was all great - a highlight of our Las Vegas trip. Kudos to our wonderful piilot, Mischa. She put us at ease (my wife is afraid of heights) and provided an excellent commentary on what we were seeing.

Started early in the morning with the drive in an excellent Mercedes Limo/Bus. Briefed on the bus and then away. Weather was great in the morning and pilot, Mike, knew the area and was able to tell all. Heidi at reception was really nice and helpful. Helicopter was in beautiful condition and was very smooth to fly in so photography was easy.

John, the owner was watching over things and working on the ramp...nice to see the boss get his hands dirty! Thanks Mark for all the info on Las Vegas on the drive...we actually followed up on some of your suggestions and had a ball.

Thanks...it's great to experience a small team working to make sure the customer experience was a great one!

Just returned from Las Vegas and as a birthday treat spent the afternoon taking the 5 Star Grand Canyon Helicopter tour. What a fabulous experience. From the minute we were collected at our hotel to the minute we were dropped off we were treated like VIP's. The luxury Mercedes minivan was immaculate and the driver was really friendly and gave lots of handy tips as well as an informative guide to the area. Mischa our pilot was absolutely amazing, such a lovely lady and kept everyone really entertained. Then after the amazing trip it was rounded off with a very civilised glass of wine and then escorted back in our luxury minivan. Thanks 5 Star, I would thoroughly recommend your tours to everyone! Mandy & Chris Warburton.
