Rated 5 out of 5 by LizJ Best way to see Vegas
Couldn't fault this in anyway. Picked up at hotel on time and transported to the airport; seeing Vegas lit up at night from the vantage point of a helicopter was pure magic - definitely the best way of seeing this city.
If I had a criticism - it didn't last long enough; so I'll have to do it again next time I go to Vegas!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AmeliaE The Flight was Amazing! Pilot...well...
It was an incredible flight!! The only drawback is it seems the pilot's use of the venue as a chance to pick up any woman they can while they can.
I am a pilot also and felt the unprofessional flirtations to be quite irritating
. I was not concerned for their flying skills for that was evident immediately. However their complete disregard for professionalism out of the cockpit was Very evident and not just my pilot but Several of the pilots. I witnessed after the landing several of the pilots all comparing notes on their female passengers. Not Good.

Our stay at the Palms was excellent. We were upgraded to a one bedroom suite for 1/2 the price and we received great customer service throughout our stay. The only complaint that I have is, the suite that we upgraded to included a washer and dryer this is one of the reasons we decided to upgrade so that we could wash our clothes the night before we went home. We proceeded to do so and then found out that the dryer was broken after we already washed the clothes. We had wet clothes that we needed to get dry by morning otherwise we were going to have to pack wet clothes. My husband stayed up till 3 in the morning trying to take care of the situation with the maintenance guy who unfortunately couldn't help us out. We ended up laying all of our clothes out by the fire in order for them to dry. We did express our concern with the front desk who graciously comped us for a few things. Our over all experience at the hotel was a good one and even though we had minor problems with the dryer we will definitely stay at the palms again. The only other complaint that I have isn't about the hotel or the service we received but about the locals on the strip that try to hustle tourist out of their money. My husband and I encountered a group of men who were trying to hustle us for donations over by Harrahs hotel. We refused to give them anything more than a dollar and one of the men became very angry and and started throwing our dollar on the ground and kicking it around saying that we should go give that to a bum or a stripper. It was our very first time on the strip and I already wanted to go home. People like that make a bad name for Vegas and will decrease the amount of visitors that come to see the strip. I felt like ever where we went that day we were targeted by hustlers. It is still very unsettling to me. Other than that my husband and I enjoyed our experience and will likely return to Vegas in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mags103 This was the best money I spent in vegas!
This trip was fantastic. Picked up on time by a really professional driver. The trip was fantastic. The pilot was great and talked us through everything before we boarded the helicopter.
The views were amazing, I couldn't believe how close to some of the buildings we were! The best money I spent in Vegas!

It's expensive in my mind but it's also a bucket list item. A helicopter ride over the strip at night! it's only 15 minutes but my wife and I got to sit up front for the best view. I wouldn't want to sit in the back row, middle 2 seats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Christinarita A great experience
Took the family out for one last summer trip and thought to start the weekend out with the Vegas Nights tour. I had been looking at different sites and after much researching Vegas.com seemed reasonable and was decently priced. Definitely book ahead of time, I booked with Vegas.com Tuesday for a Friday night flight and there weren't many left in all of town. Also, the tour was Maverick, which I don't think it says on the booking page.
The car was to pick us up at the hotel at 7:40, we walked down at 7:30 and the car was already there!
We arrived at the airport where we were offered champagne and waited while everyone arrived. The waiting area is nice and staff is friendly. We were given a piece of paper and told to read the rules....don't walk to the back of copter, don't open door, don't unbuckle your seat belt and put your phone on airplane mode. Oh, they weigh you and all of your belongings! No taking off shoes, they want to know exactly the weight. ok, seems reasonable. We waited about 20 minutes and just as my nerves couldn't take anymore, our pilot called our family of 4 and one single rider to board!
The company took the opportunity to snap a picture of our groups before boarding to sell to us when we arrived back at the airport (yay)
Our pilot gave us a little tour of the helicopter, told us how to use the seat belt and put the headphones on (so excited!)
Then we boarded! There are 3 seats (plus pilot) in front and 3 in back...We were given the front 3, since husband rode once before I sat in front with our 2 sons and husband got the back row. Single rider was in the far left seat behind pilot (its def the best view in the back).
Once we boarded there was a few minutes that all the helicopters were taking off and we kind of hovered, so it actually calmed my nerves (that and the champagne). We took off slowly and after a few turns we were up! I read others complaints about only seeing strip on left side....oh, but you can see EVERYTHING we saw people's pools lit up, the skyline, there is so much to take in and enjoy the beauty of the night-line. It was just like nothing else. So free.
12 minutes definitely seemed like more than enough our first trip when booking but we could have stayed up there forever.
We returned to the airport and like that, the pilot perfectly lowered us onto a little circle parking space and it was over.
We walked in to purchase our picture and right out to the car that took us back to the hotel. and like that, it became an amazing family memory.
I highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sydni Great way to see Veags
The new helicopter was clean, smooth, and roomy. The pilot and staff were great, and the shuttle to/from airport was nice as well. The flight was spectacular, especially since went at night.
Only minor drawback was waiting on groups to be ready (they picked up groups in multiple shuttles, signed us all in, then we went to 6 helicopters at once). That took about 30 minutes longer than if they went in waves as an aircraft's worth of people were ready.
