The organization of this tour was very well done! The staff was very nice and did everthing to satisfy their guests. The travel is worth the money! Clear recommendation. Thumbs up
This was a great experience, all the trip was awesome and perfect timing, everybody was so nice, punctual and kind. i highly recommend this company (maverick)!!!!
We had a excellent trip with Maverick! First, we arrived at the South Rim and boarded a trolley for a narrated ride to the park. Our guide was Bruce. He is knowledgeable and funny. It was a beautiful day to sit outside and have lunch. We then rode the trolley back to the airport for our helicopter ride across the canyon. It was an amazing view of the canyon. Thank you so much for an awesome day!
My new husband and I took this tour while on honeymoon and it fulfilled a lifelong dream! The whole experience was well worth it and gave us a well rounded experience of the canyon. What a spectacular place - it is just a shame we did not have longer to spend there! I would highly recommend this tour if you want to experience the beauty of being right in the canyon. amazing!
This trip was definitely worth it! The flight to the Grand Canyon was great, our pilots were fun and even allowed us to come to the front to take photos. Once we landed, we were taken to the park and provided a very filling boxed-lunch. We ate along the rim and took in the gorgeous landscape. We visited both lookout points and had enough time to see the canyon from different vantage points.
It was amazing and well worth doing. The staff, pilots, tour guide were all friendly and informative. The only caution I would give is to those individuals who do not like flying as the plane is small. If the weather is not good it could mean that you feel the plane shudder and shake more than you would on a large flight. I personally enjoyed the whole experience. Finally, don't forget to take layers of clothes as it is cooler in the Grand Canyon than Las Vegas.
We did the heli trip as well and highly recommend.
Would have liked a little more time to wander around the rim and we were a little disappointed that although we had booked months in advance a guy who decided 10 mins before we left, got a front seat on the helicopter and my husband, who would have been the same weight etc, was put in the back. it should be first in basis.
This was the highlight of our whole trip to California and we had a fantastic holiday everywhere!
The tour was fantastic, unfortunately the add on Helicopter flight was cancelled due to high winds, however viator arranged a refund for this portion quickly.
Great trip. Everything worked like clockwork and the views and people were fantastic
This trip was really outstanding. Perfect delivery to Henderson Airport in am by luxury coach right on time without delays. Beautiful airport lounge comfortable and clean with gorgeous native merchandise on display you would love to photograph or buy. Did not wait long before we were boarding the comfy plane. The crew was great and the views from above fantastic. We were greeted by another professional driver who drove us to the Bright Angel Lodge and gave us boxed lunch and bottled water. The Grand Canyon is magnificent and beyond description. Must be seen. After about 1.5 hour we were taken to Mather Point where we had another 1 hour. This is still not enough though. You would want to linger for much longer. If there is anything negative we would have to say about this trip the time at the canyon is too short. Would rather pay more money for this trip if only time was longer to enjoy this unbelievable natural wonder. Delivery back was also flawless on time no delays. What an experience!! If you don't have much time in Vegas and still want to see Grand Canyon this a tour is for you.
Great tour. Extremely well organised and a lot of fun! Definitely a highlight of our trip to Vegas. Thanks!
Great service from the pickup to the drop off. Everything went smoothly and on schedule. A great way to see the Grand Canyon in half a day. The helicopter tour was amazing and well worth the money!
Fantastic trip! Well worth it! Thank you to Bruce, Charlie and Toni for incredible memories!
The company were great and nothing was to much trouble highly recommend them to anyone
Excellent tour. V professional staff and friendly pilots who were able to put people at ease even though it was windy!
It was a brilliant trip, the pilots were really friendly and knowledgable and our tour guide Marion was really funny and informative. It was more than we expected because the discription of the tour was limited. I would go again and recommend it to anyone.
This was an amazing trip with helicopter ride over the canyon. Tour company excellent well looked after very interesting. Great tour would highly recommend the tour.
Couldn't have been any better. Mike the pilot was so interesting to listen to. Awe inspiring views of the Grand Canyon. Definitely highly recommend the trip.
Excellent tour I highly recommend it, all the staff very professional and friendly. The flight took 45 minutes then we were taken in a bus to view the Grand Canyon. The views were stunning and we had plenty of time there to take photos and walk along the ridge.
Excellent tour, very professional, everything went smoothly from the hotel pick-up to the flights and tour. Very helpful staff, both pilots and bus driver. Really enjoyed our experience and would highly recommend the tour.
(April 2014) WOW! my wife and I had a great experience taking this tour. Since this was probably a one time visit to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon we decided to splurge a bit and take the optional helicopter ride -- what a treat that was and money very well spent. everyone associated with the tour did an exceptional job.
Brilliant way to see the canyon. Todd and Austin our plane pilots were great fun. Marion our coach driver was a mine of useful information (and some terrible jokes :) ). Dave Rasmussen the helicopter pilot must have one of the best jobs in the world. An awe inspiring way to see the canyon. We took the afternoon trip so experienced sunset on the way back.
A great way to see the south rim from Las Vegas if you don't want to spend 15 hours on a bus! I recommend this tour highly. The ground staff at the tour company were friendly and efficient, and our pilots Mike and Todd were very professional, ensuring safety was a priority throughout the flight. The South Rim itself is a truly spectacular sight... I did wish we were given just a bit more time while there to explore. We stopped at Bright Angel point and Mather Point while there and were given about 55 minutes at each location to walk the paths, take pictures,visit the shops etc. I never made it to the gift shop, there was just too much to look at outside.... As an added bonus, I was able to snap a few pics from the plane as well (Hoover Dam, Colorado river, etc.). The cost of the tour made this a splurge for me, and I was NOT disappointed.
Excellent tour from start to finish. The staff were all very friendly and professional and were willing to answer any questions you had. The views of the south rim were amazing and definitely worth paying the extra for the helicopter ride. All highly recommended . Thank you
