Good, but too quick.
The whole experience was great! From the shuttle pick up, to the flight, to the shuttle drop off. But the actual helicopter ride was very short, maybe 10-12 minutes. That is close to what they quote, but I still think they should try to make it a little longer. But we still enjoyed it and would recommend it!

Overall, our experience on the Vegas Nights tour was a good one. I was pleased to receive a phone call from Maverick Helicopters when they were going to be a few minutes late. We were picked up in a shuttle bus. We stopped to pick up an older Irish couple. They were a bit distraught. They said they had been waiting for an hour and a half for the shuttle and the bus driver told them they were going to be charged $50 for not being at the pick-up spot the first time he stopped.
They tried to inform the employee at Maverick that they had been there the whole time and the bus never stopped. She was rather rude to them and said she wasn't going to waive the fee because she hears that excuse all of the time. I could see college kids using that excuse if they were at the pool and missed their pick-up time, but I truly believe these people were there. Moral of the story- be at your pick-up spot and call if they are late.
The glass of champage you receive is a small plastic cup filled about half full. We didn't have to wait very long for the helicopter ride. The ride was great. The commentary over the headset is brief, but informative. I would recommend this tour.

The flight is a good experience
The flight is a good exprience, but it is a bit short could be a little longer. Also if you end up in the middle back you are unable to see all the lights and glitter of Vegas. There is some one blocking your view in the front, plus limited left side view and they only fly on the left side of the air craft facing the Vegas Strip.

Horrible Helicopter Ride
My friend and I booked this flight as a once in a lifetime trip. I have been on many helicopters in the military and vacations but she has a fear of flying so it was going to be quite the experience for her. All things considered it probably would have been a great time and a good value for the money. However, the two of us were lumped in with a family of four including two very small children. I would guess about 3 and 4 years old. Stupid thing to take them on as they couldn't even see out the windows but hey I didn't pay for them so not my problem. What was my problem was that I paid for MY ticket and we were totally ignored for this family. The pilot spent so much time asking them where they wanted to sit and how they would like to be arranged that we actually had to get out and get situated twice. We ended up leaving the helipad way later than every one else. Never once were we asked how we would like to be sat. Then they put the headsets and earphones on the kids......who literally screamed the entire flight just for the joy of hearing themselves on the microphone! We had to shut ours off and just not talk to each other which totally ruined it for my friend who I was hoping to reassure a bit during the flight. We couldn't point out things we were passing. I regret not complaining at the time as the whole thing was awful. They really should of been more considerate of the two of us, or at least told us you will be flying with two small children and offer us a chance to reschedule or cancel. No apologies were offered. As a matter of fact we were pretty much ignored through the entire process. The only thing that was better than expected was our free t-shirt was a very nice quality. Too bad it's not a trip we wanted a souvenir from!!!

This flight was really cool and a great way to see the entire strip while you are in Vegas. We saw some roof-top pools that already have us thinking about where we will stay next time we are in town as well! They do let you take pictures without flash while flying as well as you can video the whole flight, as I did from the front seat with our digital camera.
