The tour was great but this company falsely advertises the video content for purchase. Please do not purchase the HD video as it only shows people inside the helicopter for the entire trip. It would have been nice to see parts of the Canyon on the video instead you only view the generic take off and landing. Waste of funds.

I was responsible for putting together our 10 year wedding anniversary trip. I wanted to take my wife on a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. I researched just about every company available, read every single review probably twice. I kept coming back to 5 star- soooo glad I decided to book with them. We ended up going on the Skywalk VIP Tour.

Every single part of this tour was exactly as described! We were picked up at our hotel by Curtis in the Mercedes Van- very comfortable. We had several stops to make at other hotels picking up additional tour guests- Curtis was very personable and professional. Upon arrival at the airfield we were greeted and offered coffee and drinks. We were met by Mike our pilot. I have taken several helicopter rides before but my wife had not. I can't tell you how fortunate we were to have Mike as our pilot, he was the best pilot I have flown with. During the flight he would point out certain things and also give some history. The views of Hoover Dam and Lake Mead were amazing. Once we landed we were met by Shirley. She was a van driver that takes you from the airport at the Grand Canyon to the Skywalk. It was luck of the draw but we couldn't have been happier with her as our driver. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. She accompanied us onto the Skywalk- this is a MUST see! There are photographers on the Skywalk that take your photos, this tour came with 1 photo for each person. We actually bought a photo package because the photos were so good. My wife said they were better than our wedding photos. The photographer was Roland if I'm not mistaken. Both Shirley and Roland pointed out images on the canyon walls and also rock formations that resembled different creatures besides Eagle Rock. We had additional time to take our own photos on the rocks next to the Skywalk as well. We were driven back to the airport where we were greeted by Pilot Mike and another couple who opted not to do the Skywalk tour- bad decision on their part. We loaded up into the helicopter and flew back to 5 Star headquarters. Pilot Mike offered to take photos next to the helicopter and also offered us beer, soda, coffee. After a few minutes Rebecka (spelling) loaded us up in the van and asked which hotel we would like to be dropped off at. We talked with her the entire drive back about Vegas shows. We had already seen Love at the Mirage and Blue Man Group but were on the fence about seeing another show. We took her advice and booked the show O at the Bellagio the next day. She was absolutely right the show was amazing. Thank you very much for the recommendation! Rebecka my wife and I couldn't figure out what the meaning of the show was but it was very entertaining- next to 5 Star Helicopter Tour it was our 2nd favorite part of our trip to Las Vegas.

I would not hesitate to take another tour with 5 Star!! Thank you very much for making our 10 year wedding anniversary so memorable- The Martins

If you are looking for an unforgettable experience in Vegas then don't go home without taking a memorable helicopter ride over the Hoover Dam and into the Grand Canyon. 5 Star helicopter tours are a 5 star professional company who make you feel special from the moment you are collected from your hotel. Punctual and polite the chauffeur picked us up on time and with a smile!

On arrival at the heli pad we were greeted by friendly staff who offered us refreshments and then ran through the safety requirements before the tour began.

We were introduced to our pilot Jim who was again polite and professional. During the tour he was most knowledgable with lots of facts and information.

After a breath taking fly over the Canyon we touched down to further embark on a shuttle bus which took us to the sky walk(extra cost) great fun! Then on to Eagle point where we had an opportunity to wander on the cliff edge (no safety barriers here,) take some amazing pictures and climb up the rocks to the highest point for a birds eye view.

The return journey was just as enjoyable. Jim the pilot ensured our safety at all times and gave us great pleasure in allowing us to take photographs throughout the tour and photos with him his helicopter and us.

We ended the tour back at base with Big smiles on our faces and a lots of unbelievable memories including a video (optional)

To make the trip eve better - a longer time at the attractions, sky walk, ranch and Eagle point would of been perfect.
Overall Fabulous!

Exceptionally friendly, brand new helicopter, first class from picking you up at the hotel to dropping you back off. They did a great job communicating safety regulations too. Kathleen was our pilot and she was fantastic and a great historian!

Do not visit Las Vegas without a helicopter ride over the Gran Canyon and Hoover Dam. 5 Star fills all the expectations with superior service and friendly staff. The pilot seemed professional and with lots of history knowledge, guided us through an unforgettable trip. Thanks also to the nice service personnel.
