Brilliant, one of the best things we did in 5 weeks in the US. Our pilot was knowledgable and clearly had a great love for the Canyon. It was an absolutely breathtaking way to see the canyon and I qould recommend this to anyone.
This tour was amazing. You are flying over the Kaibab Forest then all of a sudden the Canyon opens up before you. Of course I had the best seat in the helicopter, the right front. My cousin who sat next to me in the front was thrilled. The chopper is loaded according to balance and weight so the larger heavier people were in the back. We talked a couple we met into going and they both being heavy were placed in the back. But she is short and she said she couldn't see very much. But my feeling is this: You have to go. This is the tour of a lifetime. The pilot was very knowledgeable and talked the whole time, telling us about what we were seeing. Went over the North Rim for about 10 min and saw a herd of buffalo. We didn't get low enough to scare them which I appreciated. The whole trip was involved with keeping the Canyon the way we were seeing it. I have read complaints in articles talking about the noise problem at the Canyon, but we never really went over the South Rim Village, so I think that shouldn't be a concern when deciding whether to go or not. You simply must go. and take the 45 min tour, not the 30 minute. It is worth every penny.
Spectacular! Spendy but loved it and worth it.
Very nice, everyone was plesent, the pilot was great and my wife loved the flight.
The helicopter tour was fabulous and our Jeep Tour guide, Jim, was great! Both were very informative and welcoming!
Best way to see the grand canyon. It was the highlight of our 12 day trip to Nevada, Utah and Arizona. Everybody was friendly and nice to work with. Pilot was great.
What a fantastic experience! All the staff was helpful and professional, especially our pilot. While we had to wait a bit after our appointment time, it was well worth it! The flight was spectacular, with added value from the pilot's narration and music selections.
Fabulous views, great pilot who patiently answered all our children's questions.
I have traveled with the other helicopter flights over the Grand Canyon and yours is the best! The pilot was very informed and never in a hurry just taking his time to explain any questions we had as well as willing to take photos when we landed. It was a smooth flight with excellent picturing taking of the Canyon. I highly recommend the flight and will be taking a couple of friends as well as my son and his wife in a few weeks. It was a special time for my friends and me to take this flight together. It was their first time and they were so thrilled that they were able to go with me as my guest.....Bill Bennett
IT was GREAT. Had the best Pilot
very enjoyable, interesting and informative and smooth ride, everything went as planned and on time.
Great experience... especially the moment the helicopter flew out over the canyon after a few minutes skimming tree tops. We all gasped at that. The pilot was great too. Answered questions about the canyon and how to fly a helicopter! Really interesting.

The Tour was Amazing! Definitely have to see the Grand Canyon via Helicopter.
This was the highlight of our trip to the Grand Canyon, for sure! Glad we did it before we did the ground tour. Our pilot, Justin, was wonderful! We got the picture and the video, and we're glad we did. First time on a helicoptor for all four of us, and we would love to do it again. Great experience that we will remember for a lifetime.
What a fantastic trip, I Know people tell you how amazing it is but you have to experience it first hand, the majesty and power of this unique part of Arizona- special thanks to the staff at the helicopter company who went the extra mile
The helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon was amazing! Our pilot, Greg did a great job of explaining and making sure everyone got their questions answered and was comfortable.
A fantastic tour with Maverick helicopters.Our pilot Fred was great and the whole experience was worth every penny.We did the circular 45 minute tour which gives you a brilliant view of the canyon and the river, and an early flight gave us a really smooth ride.Can't recommend this tour highly enough.We also drove along the rim afterwards and visited Shoshone Point and the Watchtower, which made for a memorable day.
Greg was a wonderful guide. The tour was MAGNIFICENT! Flying over the Grand Canyon was phenomenal...Like photos, the video for sale doesn't do the trip justice - note that your conversation and pilot's are recorded so express where you are and what is important about each location if pilot does not.
This was an awesome way to see the Grand Canyon! You really get up close and personal! The company was very organized and friendly. I would definitely put this on your to do list while in Arizona.
Absolutely excellent - really worthwhile - from booking to check in to flight to views !

Pure magic! Well-organized all the way. Super guide for the jeep tour who was 'out-running' the rain and sleet, giving us fantastic views and very informative comments. Thank you very much to everybody for making my birthday treat so special!
I couldn't have asked for a better tour of the Grand Canyon. I'm so glad I made the purchase.

This tour had everything you need. We took the morning helicopter out over the canyon so you can see how large it really is. Then the Jeep tour lets you get out and explore. You still have 1/2 day left to go back and take advantage of exploring on your own.
Guide was great. He shared lots of unique information we would not have had on our own.
The helicopter tour was excellent. Well organized. Gives you perspective of the Canyon you just can not get from the ground. Jeep tour was nothing spectacular. Was taken to 3 or 4 viewing points. We had stopped at two of them the day before. Tour guide was good.
