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
We did the Grand Canyon air and ground tour with Maverick airlines. It was perfect for us to see the south rim in a day. Everything ran smoothly from the pickup from our hotel to the plane and bus trip. We felt that we had plenty of time to see the sights at the 2 viewing stops. The views were spectacular. We had a funny bus driver - Bruce (Omar) who kept us entertained while explaining the sights. The pilots of the plane were also very informative and allowed us each to come up to look out the cockpit's window. I would recommend this trip,to anyone who only has a day to see the Grand Canyon. It really gives you a feel of the place and you see a whole lot more by flying over it in the great plane where everyone has a window seat.
Wonderful ...very professionnal, very well organized and very confortable.. Best way to get a a glimpse at the reality of the Gran Canyon. Only thing a bit wrong (for french people) : the picnic is absolutely not eatable.
Thank you to our marvellous pilots
We loved this tour! Prompt pick up time, really nice drivers (think the one at the Canyon was called Marion), friendly pilots who pointed out all the sights along the way and invited everybody to the cockpit to capture some amazing photos. The views from the South Rim are out of this world - so worth taking the time to do the South Rim tour rather than Grand Canyon West - the views are much better. All in all I can't fault this trip, fantastic value for money!
The Viator agents were superb and everything was as described and went smoothly from hotel pick-up, to flight and bus tour and drop-off back to the hotel. The staff, pilots and guide of the tour company were all excellent; friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us.. and a great packed lunch too. Then there was the Canyon of course! A great trip all round.
Fantastic tour. Professional and friendly staff from hotel pick up to drop off.
The helicopter was well worth the extra and I would highly recommend doing this. The views are amazing and pilot knowledgable and friendly.
Ground crew staff prior to flights had us checked in, in no time at all. A hassle free tour! All timed perfectly.
Bright Angel Lodge was also great for viewing and stunning photos!
A most enjoyable day out!
Because of the Government shutdown the tour was moved to the West Rim. It was nonetheless BEAUTIFUL! I ended up sitting next to the pilot and the view from there was breathtaking. Our pilot was very polite and welcoming and the tour itself will be an unforgettable memory.
