What To Expect

The supersized attractions of Las Vegas are best appreciated from the sky. Your twilight tour begins with pickup at your Las Vegas hotel in a limo for a stylish transfer to the airport launch pad. After a brief safety orientation, climb aboard a 6-passenger A-Star helicopter and take to the air. 

First, fly out into the Nevada desert for an aerial tour of sprawling Lake Mead and the famous Hoover Dam. Admire the landscape bathed in the rosy hues of sunset, and learn about the impressive engineering of the dam and other fascinating facts from your pilot through a two-way communication system. The helicopter’s large windows are designed for sightseeing, so you won’t miss a thing.

As light fades from the sky, circle back to Las Vegas for a low-level flight above the Strip. Spot your hotel and favorite Vegas landmarks, such as the Stratosphere tower, the skyline of New York-New York, the glittering green palace of the MGM, the illuminated pyramid of the Luxor, and the jumping Bellagio fountains. 

After 35 minutes in the air, touch back down at the launch site, where your limousine awaits to whisk you back to your hotel. For even more luxury, upgrade to an EC-130 helicopter that offers more legroom and a higher weight limit. See Important Info tab for weight restriction details.

I would not recommend this tour. We never got below 3500 feet and we were literally miles from the Hoover Dam. We only had one pass on the river side and back to Vegas. We did not go down the Vegas strip but was about 5 blocks over from the strip. We took only one pass down the strip with very little commentary regarding what we were seeing. This was not our first helicopter touring trip, but it was our worst. The cost was not worth what we received.

Never been in a helicopter before and it was amazing and the view up The Strip as the lights went on was fabulous. Our pilot Ben was really friendly and had great knowledge of the sights. Would definitely recommend and can't wait to come back and do the Grand Canyon trip.

Although Hoover Dam was on my side of the helicopter, I thought we would circle and go lower to get a better view. Due to a scheduling problem, they offered me an upgrade for the Dam and Grand Canyon tour, so that really enhanced the trip. Many people have asked if I was scared, but I was not--besides we had a very competent pilot, Rebecca. One of the great parts of the trip was the sun had set and as we flew back to Las Vegas, the lights were coming on, and was such a marvelous sight. The entire helicopter business and equipment was very well maintained. I heartily recommend this tour to visitors to Las Vegas.

WelKnown, Jan 2017
This was my first time on a helicopter and I can't wait to go again. The pilot was very informative and the flight was amazingly smooth. The day started out dark and gloomy, however the sun came out just in time for sunset and that was such a site to see from the air. I will be going again as well as recommending family and friends.

Kelly, Sep 2016
This was a birthday present for my mom’s 75th birthday. It was such a great time. Our pilot was Matt and a really great guy. The take-off was very smooth and as we flew out to Lake Mead we did get to see some of the sunset over Red Rock which was spectacular. It was so amazing to see the bridge over Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. After passing beautiful rock formations, we approached old Fremont Street and could see all the neon from up above. We turned again and passed the Stratosphere, then flew right alongside the strip all the way down to the end and back to the landing area. I got to take so many pictures while we were up in the air.

Glad we did it but it didn't feel like good value for money especially as we chose the more expensive Eurocopter and, although probably perfectly safe, the vibration was so bad only two photos were worth keeping!

Ok I'll start off with the sights are the reason I gave this a 3 star. The helicopter ride was awesome. That's it. Everything else was just horrible. No time was set for pick up. Driver rushed us. Champagne wasn't there. Not even offered water. The driver drove like a mad man. Didn't care at all.

Tom R, Jun 2016
The local helicopter company gave a first class experience. Excellent. Limo service was great and very pleasant driver. Raymond, our pilot was very friendly, professional and gave us plenty of confidence, which is great if you've never flown in a helicopter before. The Helicopter was of a high standard and new... again, you know you are safe when you see the pilot and machine. The tour itself is great, with a good recorded guide plus extra bits of info thrown in by the pilot. If we'd won any money in Vegas, we would have been back again this week for a second trip!

Melanie N, May 2016
The sunset tour was amazing and the only downfall was that it wasn't longer, lol. As soon as we landed, I wanted to book another tour. This was my first time in a helicopter so I opted to sit in the back seat, but I would highly suggest sitting in the front for better views. Our pilot was so nice and really knowledgeable too.

First off I was unaware I was going to be riding with two other couples! I sat on the right behind the pilot and we never had good views of anything! Not even the strip! The other two couples were covering the window! All I saw was mountains! Dislike times 10!
