Ben and I had a wonderful experience! We highly recommend this package.

The day started off bright and early with a pick-up from our hotel. Our driver was super friendly and provided tons of recommendations for activities in Las Vegas. We went on our float ride first. It was approximately 3 hours starting at Hoover Dam, riding down the Colorado River through the Black Canyons. It was hot and sunny but the water was cool, clean, and refreshing. Our guide, Kathleen, was very knowledgeable about the Hoover Dam and the Colorado River.

After the ride, we returned to the office where the helicopter flight takes off. We had about a 45-minute wait before our flight was scheduled to begin. The receptionist was super nice. She gave us cool drinks and offered us to watch Netflix while we wait. Our flight took off on time. Our pilot, Phil, was knowledgeable about the Canyon and did his best to make the ride as comfortable as possible (I had a bit of motion sickness).

Overall, we had a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this package to anyone who wants to see the canyons on the ground and up in the air. If you're interested in only seeing the Grand Canyon, I have heard amazing reviews of the helicopter flight that drops passengers off for 2 hours at the top.

We loved both the helicopter ride and the river float. Our pilot was Kathleen and she was extremely competent and friendly. Our river float guide was Brian. He was a wealth of knowledge and had a great sense of humour. Worth the money and definitely recommended.

everything from start to finish was excellent. was very well organized, all we had to do was turn up on the day at the agreed pick up time.
i was surprised at how good the rafting was and dennis (the driver of the raft) was funny and knowledgeable and made the trip even more enjoyable.
the helicopter was great with stunning views.
overall i could not fault this trip and would recommend it to any one that has not been to the canyon/ hoover dam before.

We booked our trip wondering if the white water rafting trip wouldnt be better since we had two "teens" with us but it proved to be entertaining enough if not a bit long. Our son especially had a great time spotting the long horn sheep and taking pictures. My daughter got a kick out of straddling the raft and placing her feet in the ice cold water! My husband and I were thrilled with the ability to take lots of pictures without worrying about having to hold on.... EVERYONE, from the driver,the raft guide, and the helicopter pilot were all very knowlegeable and fun!! Would highly recommend this trip for incredible views of the canyon. This was our kids first ride in a helicopter and they loved every minute! The views from the air are definitely different than from a raft!!

5 Star gave us a first-class ride from our hotel to the airport, where Mischa (our pilot) was amazing! Her personality just shined as we headed to the helicopter for an absolutely amazing ride past Hoover Dam and into the Grand Canyon. There was no wind, so she gave us a bird's eye view of everything. The helicopter ride could not have been better! Mischa was very informative about the area as well. We then rode in luxury again to our rafting trip. Leslie was our tour guide for the rafting trip and she was very informative as well and an amazing boat operator. There was a little mix-up on our transportation back to the hotel, but a wonderful gentleman from 5 Star gave us a ride back. Come to find out...he was the owner! Thank you all for a great day!!!

Helicopter tour was amazing thanks to 5 star grand canyon helicopter tours. The pilot was just super friendly and a really cool person. The raft ride was also awesome, but it would have been nice to be in a smaller raft and maybe a shorter ride.

One word; Incredible!!

We booked this trip two months in advance and weren’t sure what to expect with the combination of helicopter and boat- we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience!

We were greeted by a lovely guy who picked us up from our hotel in a new mini bus and kept us entertained on the short trip to the small airport to board our helicopter. We were greeted and offered drinks and refreshments in a very nice building before meeting our wonderful lady pilot! She was confident, fun, engaging and interesting and made our flight (just over an hour- longer than expected) so worthwhile! The views were incredible- a must see- and we thoroughly enjoyed flying through the Grand Canyon and over the rivers surrounding it.

We were then picked up again by our lovely driver and taken to another hotel where we would be transported to pick up our boat down via an old fashioned El Dorado ranch. Once again, we had a lovely informative driver and a great look around this old ranch before being met by another guy to take us out on the water. Again- an incredible experience!! Blue sky, peaceful and calm undisturbed water, great lunch, interesting stories and little stops along the way.

We had the most perfect day and would repeat it again, or recommend it to others, in a heartbeat!!

A Class Tour!
