I took my wife to this trip for her birthday. We've lived in Las Vegas for a couple years and this was the one remaining thing on her LV bucket list. The entire experience was amazing and worth every penny. The entire Maverick staff was super friendly and the pilot was funny and engaging. 5 stars!!!
The staff was super friendly and welcoming. Our pilot was very enjoying. He knew the canyon history very well, he was able to answer all of our questions and he was quite enjoyable to listen too. He even played good tunes for our flight!! Booking with Viator was super easy and we saved money!! I will definitely book again when we travel next!! Cheers....eh!
We throughly enjoyed our trip and our pilot was fun and interactive. I would highly recommend taking the tour with Viator!
Outstanding experience. Amazing views. A wonderful way to experience the Grand Canyon. Our pilot provided a great tour that pointed out key points, geological information, flora and fauna and included fun trivia. We had a high quality, professional experience from check-in through flight completion. Our 12 and 9 year old boys loved their first helicopter experience. Well worth the cost for a one-of-a-kind experience.
This really is an amazing experience and a great way to get your first glimpse of Grand Canyon. I do recommend the 45-minute tour over a 25-minute tour, particularly as it takes several minutes to get to the canyon from the airport.
A few practical notes: Do note that a 15 fuel surcharge is not included in the price it usually is if you book from the vendor directly so the savings through Viator is not quite as high as it may look like at first, but it still is a savings. Also, the Viator tour cannot be cancelled though it can be rescheduled whereas reserving through the vendor directly can be cancelled without penalty with enough notice. Still, if you are willing to prepay and commit, you get a discount using Viator.
And let me say again, the flight is really quite amazing!!! The pilot narrated, we could talk to each other through out headsets, there was an opportunity to pose for pictures after the flight. Top notch company, top notch experience. Worth splurging and doing once.
Great booking system, reception at airport and briefing. Great pilot. Great flight over canyon with fantastic views and commentary from pilot on what we were seeing and narrative on instructions from air traffic control. All round a great experience
The helicopter is the only perspective to let you see the full scale of the Grand Canyon. The views are magnificent and can not be achieved by driving to the few points around the canyon. I recommend a helicopter flight and a hike down into the canyon to make your stay complete. The pilot was very helpful and informative. The ride was smooth and safe. We had only 5 passengers so everyone either rode up front or had their own personal side window. Great flight.
This was the perfect way to start our exploration of the grand canyon. Going up in the Helicopter gave a totally different perspective then hiking down the mountain. We did the helicopter ride first and then went to the grand canyon. Our pilot was fantastic and full of information. We would definitely recommend it.
Great way to see the Grand Canyon up close! Our pilot Marcus was very informative and professional. A truly once in a lifetime experience.
It was a Great experience and everyone was extremely nice and helpful! I would definitely recommend this company over any other! Thanks Jane Peterson
Awesome views. great pilot. Highly recommend this to complete your Grand Canyon visit.
This was a spectacular tour. The pilot, BJ, was very competent and informative. The helicopter was comfortable with great visibility of course, we had front of the aircraft seats.The magnitude and grandeur of the canyon cannot be appreciated other than from the air. We highly recommend this tour and company
The best helicopter tour ever. Facilities in the terminal were excellent and the staff was friendly and efficient. Our pilot and the tour were amazing. I have already recommended this tour to friends.
The trip was absolutely perfect! From the check in to the tour itself! Jake, our pilot was wonderful and really interacted with my 3 boys. Couldn't have asked for a better guide to tell us so much about the Grand Canyon!
Wonderful in every way! We flew over amazing sites, up side canyons and saw both rims. The pilot was friendly and we felt safe and relaxed. This Maverick tour is perfect. Don't hesitate, it is well worth the fee.
just fantastic - a must when visiting the Grand Canyon .
I was very impressed with the quality of the helicopter and the safety precautions - great experience and felt safe and secure from check in to touch down
Awesome experience! BJ, our pilot with Maverick Aviation was awesome and I would highly recommend them!
This was a great way to view the vastness of the Grand Canyon. We really enjoyed the flight!!!
