This was a great experience! Our pilot Jimmy was not only super knowledgeable and safe but he was great entertainment!! The flight itself was nothing like I've ever experienced! It was amazing seeing everything from up that high, we flew past the hoover dam, lake mead, then the grand canyon! Then were dropped off to view the grand canyon, guano hill (? Forgot what it was called?) And eagle point, the day was a little windy and chill but beautiful still!!! Id recommend this tour especially if you never been on a helicopter!!! Jimmy was fabulous!!!!

Our pilot, JImmy, was knowledgeable and gave a great description of the sights. He had a nice sense of humor while flying the helicopter in a safe and professional manor. The flight through the Grand Canyon will continue to be an awesome memory. The Staff at 5 Star Helicopter were all so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. Highly recommend.

Bad experience and dishonesty

An officer called me to offer a grade up to similar tour for free. I was thinking for a while because the proposed tour would start in just 6 hours, and then she told the truth. My tour would not be held due to lack of attendees and I followed her proposal but I am not sure why she told in a roundabout way. The next day, when I was checking in, the officer said I need an additional fee for a gradeup. She did not believe I was told that I could join another tour for free, and I needed to pay additional fee. Further, the pilot took a photo of other attendees but did not that of myself in front of grand canyon. Finally, I was assigned a bad seat from which I cannot see grand canyon well in the outward trip. In the return trip, I was assigned a window seat but I could not see grand canyon because the return trip did not follow the same route as the outward trip.
