My daughter surprised me with the special helicopter ride for my birthday and I had the best time. We got to sit up front with the pilot which gave us the best views. Getting to see all of the beautiful mountains, Hoover Dam and then going over Lake Mead was beautiful. I especially enjoyed seeing downtown Las Vegas and the Las Vegas strip. I wish we could have gone longer.

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.
Terrific experience made all the better by the pilot's friendly nature and knowledge of the area.
Great way to see the layout of Vegas. The sunset and looking down to the city lights was amazing. Excellent value for money.
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!
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.
This flight was amazing! It was definitely a great point of view seeing the strip and the Hoover Dam from above.
This was our favorite part of our trip to Vegas! The tour starts with a limo pick-up at your hotel, then they take you to the helipad, give a brief video about the trip, and then it begins! Seeing the Hoover Dam, Lake Meade, and Downtown Vegas, and the strip from the helicopter is amazing! And, to get to see it while the sun sets? Get outta here! It is OUTSTANDING! We would do it again in a heartbeat!
Can I just say, WOW! Flying in a helicopter is one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ kind of things that everyone should do. This helicopter flight was especially cool because it was at sunset so being in Vegas, it was awesome to see the city light up and be in air without having the sun right on us. In addition to the great view, Angela was a fun and energetic pilot. If I had the chance, I would definitely do this again.
Our tour and especially our pilot were awesome!
Limo ride was meh... but the tour company and our pilot Raymond made the tour. Informative, very skilled pilot and a well run operation- friendly and professional. I do not like heights or copters but loved our trip- they HAVE to be doing something right!
Tour was everything I expected. Enjoyed it tremendously. Was the highlight of my week in Vegas!!
What a sweet surprise for my fiancé! Our pilot, Jonathan, was great. The views are amazing. Pictures don't do it justice. Although we took pictures, we both agreed that the best way to remember this experience is to live it!
Very smooth flight in terms of stability. Pilot trained the passenger very well and made them comfortable. 35 minutes seems a bit short though. Recommend having a small window opening, if possible, to have the best picture shots.
By far, one of the best experiences my boyfriend and I have had! We were in the helicopter with 2 other couples and got lucky to sit upfront, next to our amazing pilot, Vic. The views of the dam and strip were beautiful and Vic was kind, funny and overall a great pilot. Definitely worth the money!
We had an awesome experience! The customer service from booking all the way back to the hotel was exceptional. The staff and pilot were friendly. I would highly recommend the experience!!
We took the twilight tour over Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam and the Las Vegas strip. It was my girlfriend's first time in a helicopter. (It was a birthday present for her. After the flight she said it was the best birthday present she ever got.) The flight was excellent, the weather was great and the pilot, Alex, was outstanding. Flying in a helicopter is much more enjoyable than being in an airplane. The next time we visit Las Vegas, we will take the Grand Canyon tour. Hopefully we can get Alex again as our pilot. - Keith from Florida
So glad we did this on our vegas trip and the limo to the helicopter was just as fun!!!!!!!
The helicopter tour was fantastic. The limo pickup was right on time. However I wasn't expecting that there would be other couples in the limo awaiting to go on the same tour but to be fuel and time efficient it made sense. Overall the experience was wonderful and I would love to do another tour!
I bought this as a gift for my mums 50th birthday. Both her and my step dad said it was an amazing experience, the pilot was very skilled and that the experience as a whole was great. there was a delay, this was to make sure you were in the air just before the sun was setting. Perfect timing!!
It was very nice! Pickup on time in a nice stretch limo, warm welcome at the checkin, the waiting time was a little long though but we understand that its good to be there on time and its tricky to wait for the right twilight timing. Captain was great! Would recommend to everybody!
