Both my wife Pam and myself are still trying to find the words to describe this experience. Above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Our pilot, Fred, was very knowledgeable and made the flight that much more. Thanks and thanks again. This is the way to see the Grand Canyon. Also, the folks that helped at the station were the friendliest folk around. It was one of those events that we will remember for a long, long time. Thanks for the memories....

Once we checked in we actually upgraded our tour to the 45 minute version and it was outstanding in every way! Would highly recommend this company and this adventure was one of the highlights of our entire trip! It puts the size of the Grand Canyon into perspective that you just can't get from walking on the rim!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

Wonderful tout. Worth it!!!! There are several companies and offices at airport. It is better to mention Maverick company and provide map of airport on voucher.

Wow. What a great ride. Nice "terminal", professional people, great friendly pilot, smooth ride, beautiful view, and what appears to be a very modern Helicopter... 4 X 4 Seating on our trip, the filled the front row (Pilot + 3), and the back row had 2, one on each window, so that way everyone had a window seat. would recommend to everyone.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2013

This was an excellent tour and worth every penny particularly as we were upgraded by Maverick to the 45 minute trip instead of the 25 minute.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Great value helicopter trip through part of the Grand Canyon. You get to see South and North rim and fly below the rim a little. Due to restrictions which minimise the noise for other visitors it is not a fly anywhere trip, but you see plenty and it is an ideal complement to a hike below the rim.
