This was a great way to see the South Rim without spending 10 hours driving. The pilots and tour staff were very friendly and helpful.
Everything went smoothly and everyone was very professional
The plane ride was easy and awesome and the view was amazing. We saw elk grazing right beside the road on the way to the South Rim. The only glitch was the driver was 20 minutes late in picking us up due to unforseen circumstances, so it was cold while we were waiting for him. The lunch box was not as good as the one we got on the West Rim bus tour with a different company.
Stunning helicopter flight. We were a bit caught out by how cold it was when we arrived at the Rim so perhaps some warning about that.
We researched many different tours before selecting this one and I highly recommend it!! The whole experience with the Airlines, the tour operator, was flawless, and I am very pleased I found this tour through Viator. We were staying in Vegas and wanted to see the Grand Canyon South Rim we heard it was more colorful than the West Rim but were not able to drive or stay overnight. Although this tour is more expensive than a bus tour, it was 100 worth it as you did not have to spend 8 hours on a bus round trip. The tour offered two different times during May, so we went with the 2pm, allowing us to have the entire morning and get back to Vegas in time to have dinner and enjoy the night there! The tour was perfectly organized like other reviewers mentioned. Everyone from the customer service reps on the phone to the trolley/bus drivers to the pilots were friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
I would also recommend adding the helicopter option as it really was beautiful to see the Canyon from that vantage point. If you choose the helicopter option, you only get to see Bright Angel Lodge on the ground if you don't choose the helicopter option, you get to see both Mather Point and Bright Angel Lodge on the ground. That was the only downside but the helicopter was definitely an experience to remember and I don't regret it! The helicopter was also super smooth and not choppy at all. This was truly a wonderful experience and again, I highly recommend it!
Great trip - Maverick are a very professional company. They advised me I would have one passenger without a window seat and offered to change time and date to give a better experience. Can't fault them. All the staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. Easy to book with Viator and they kept in touch with me with reminders about the trip and what I need to take with me. Would definitely use again
It was amazing!!!! The staff at Maverick were so professional, the pilots of both the aircraft and helicopter were wonderful and the bus driver was hilarious! This is a must do Grand Canyon Tour!
This is the only way to see the Grand Canyon. The tour was fantastically well organised. From the pick up in the morning to the drop off in the afternoon, the tour ran like clockwork. All the staff from the tour company were friendly and willing to answer any questions. An unforgettable experience.
Very satisfied with our trip. The pilots were really nice and even helped out with a situation I had. The Grand Canyon should be on everyone's bucket list. The thing I liked the best was getting back to our hotel with plenty of time do a bunch of other cool stuff. Definitely worth the upgrade over the bus.
Fantastic trip and the people were so nice. One of the pilots even took a pic of me by the plane. I loved the plane trip immensely. The tour guide was also fantastic. Bruce was his name. I would recommend this trip with 5 stars. I admire these people and what they do
The tour was amazing! We used Viator this summer in Paris and was very happy with the tour so we used the same tour company again . The only complaint that I had was that I specifically ordered vegetarian lunches for my entire family and they did not have any for us. We had no lunch !
Very professional and well organised. I had a great day thanks to Maverick. Highly recommended

Though one of the most expensive day trips Ive taken, I highly recommend this to anyone! The staff were all amazing, down to the drivers that picked us up/ dropped us off. You could tell this company knows their business- everyone was really efficient, punctual, friendly, the pilots/ drivers were great. And the views are phenomenal. Definitely do the helicopter add-on if youre able to, its worth every penny!

Have to say this tour lives up to it's rating. Flights saved us so much time, we weren't up early and had the whole night still in Vegas. Flights were great, as were our pilots, especially Eric! Lunch was good, everything ran smoothly and the Canyon was spectacular.
Plus, I proposed to my girlfriend and she said yes, so a pretty memorable time all round!!!! :-D
Everything was brilliant from the hotel pick up to pilots can't recommend this trip enough. The best way to see the grand canyon in half a day
Great trip, highly recommended, scenic and take advantage of the optional helicopter tour, you won't regret it And will see some amazing scenery, just beautiful. The NationL Park was breathtaking, so glad I did this tour, forget the West Rim, thismismthe way to do it!
I only had one day available to see the Grand Canyon. Viator/tour company provided that opportunity to me with complete style. Our flight from Henderson Executive airport to the South rim was a mere 40 minute ride offering nice views of the Grand Canyon from 15K feet. I chose to shorten my time on the ground to 1 hour and opted for the Helicopter air tour. I was very please I made this choice as the I got to see so much more of the Grand Canyon from the spectacular viewpoint from the Helicopter. The staff, including the pilots and bus drivers were all very professional and friendly. All scheduled times, from hotel pickup, take off and landings, to return to hotel were very prompt. Overall, I'm very pleased with the tour!
I took the trip from Las Vegas. It was extremely well organized and very interesting. The helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon was one of the best experiences I've ever had. I highly recommend taking this trip.
A truly fantastic day, very we'll organised. Would fully recommend. A memory to treasure
We loved our trip to grand canyon. The crew and the staff were very nice. I would highly recommend it.
The tour was perfectly organised, from booking to pick-up service from the hotel in Las Vegas. Everybody had a window seat and our pilots were very friendly and helpful. Grand Canyon was really amazing, stunning views and a life time experience. Although not a bargain it was definitely worth the price ! We would book Maverick Airlines again and can highly recommend it !
It was an Amazing tour. The Pilots were very helpful and made sure each one of us was taken care of. During the flight to Grand Canyon, each of us could walk to the cockpit and interact with the Pilots...... Just Amazing....
This tour is exactly as described by other reviewers. We chose the afternoon and were picked up promptly at our hotel, transferred to Henderson, boarded our plane and enjoyed a pleasant flight of about 45 minutes to the south rim. We were met by Bruce our driver and tour guide on the red trolley bus and taken to two viewing areas with adequate time at each before our return flight to Vegas. A great half day out with a very professional operated and well worth the cost!
