This was an absolutely amazing ride over the Grand Canyon. Sat right up front next to the pilot (he was great) and had a fantastic view. It was well worth it and I am so glad my family and I did it.
A thrill. Pilot was witty and full of vim! We enjoyed every minute and would recommend it for anyone.
Fantastic! We took the flight for our 27th Wedding Anniversary and soared!
Only regret was that the helicopter could not fly down into the Canyon and it was a bit tight inside
the helicopter, however, the views more than made up for this.
The pilot gave a good narrative during the flight and answered all the passengers' questions.
My husband is a retired Apache attack helicopter pilot and he said the pilot did great on the flying.
So, YES, we really enjoyed this trip!

One word Amazing. It was the highlight of our trip. Its the best wsy to view the canyon. Our flight director Brent was wonderful vey professional informative, and we felt safe. Would do it again.
Our tour of the Grand Canyon saved our holiday as our trip to Zion, Bryce and the Grand Canyon National Parks was seriously hampered by the recent park closures. The pre booked helicopter trp was without doubt the highlight of our holiday, from start to finish the trip was terrific, the pilot was very entertaining and informative but the breathtaking beauty of the canyon exceeded everything. If visiting the grand canyon this tour is a must do. Brilliant
My girlfriend and I could not put into words how highly we say to people "you must do this". I have had an aeroplane flight over the canyon many years ago, but this was much better. You are very much closer, i.e. lower altitude, where you can be simply dazzled more by the canyon's natural beauty. The many colours are wonderful, the sight of bison grazing, plus the commentary from our pilot Adam Henderson, who also made time for the young daughter of the family in front, made for a relaxing and awe inspiring trip.
The staff at the check in were very efficient, safety briefs were done, and all made for a great trip
Excellent! BUT!!! When booking through Viator, be aware that you will be flying on Maverick copters. We almost missed our flight, because we wcould not find Viator copters.
Whilst staying at the canyon gives incredible views from the various vista points there is absolutely nothing that can compare with a flight over the canyon in a helicopter. It was amazing from start to finish. Our pilot Adam greeted us and explained the flight and gave us an invaluable commentary on the canyon. The Maverick set up is excellent and the helicopters have great visibility. Our flight was from Grand Canyon airport so we got to the rim in 6 minutes and had some 35 minutes over different parts. Go in the morning as the light is excellent and weather less likely to close in and become turbulent. I can only praise the pilot and company. It is value for money for sure and even though two of the ladies had never flown before and were given the front seats this was fine and they felt very safe. It s not cheap but will be a memory for life.
The Grand Canyon is a very special place on the planet but the helicopter flight was the highlight of our trip. 10/10.
The pilot was well qualified and knowledgeable about the Grand Canyon and its environs. The aircraft was comfortable and in top shape. The flight was smooth and without drama. All in all, a most enjoyable 45 minutes which we did not want to end.
All the staff were friendly and helpful. The pilot was especially good. The experience was memorable and one I will treasure the rest of my life.
There aren't enough words to describe this. It was breathtaking from start to finish. Being our first time in a helicopter, the pilot was very informative and professional. We had information flowing from start to finish. Only negative: fuel charge at time if flight. Really!!
