Excellent day. Maverick were very professional and the tour went very smoothly. We were very happy with what we saw at the Grand Canyon and would recommend this tour to others.
Wonderful tour there you can see all beauty of the Canyon and not got tired of the trip. The tour is operated by Maverick which has its own takeoff strips and airport lodges in Las Vegas and Canyon, what makes all trip comfortable and deluxe. Our guide Stephaney was an amazing person, so joyful and competent, and set cheerful tone since the early morning. You can find some amazing views of the Canyon South Rim from the Angel Lodge. I took the helicopter option as well and made some great photos of the Colorado River inside the Canyon. If you are staying in Vegas for couple of days it’s the best tour to see the Canyon. Highly recommend!
This was an amazing experience! I read many reviews of all Grand Canyon trips and chose this one and am so glad I did. The professionalism of Maverick was outstanding. 5 stars to everyone involved even the bus drivers. The pilots of the plane invite you up to the cockpit to view the scenery. Everything was amazing! Well done Maverick!
Ps. Viator.....a local phone number on the printed ticket would be helpful for international travel sim cards that can't ring toll free numbers.
The tour offers everything you want to see in a minimum amount of time. 45Min flying instead of 6 hours in a bus...meaning that when you leave the grand canyon again the busses still have to arrive...With the plane you get to see the grand canyon without the mass tourism that has yet to arrive! Great deal. And Maverick Air was oké, no complaints here.
Worth the money, for sure.
I was impressed by the Maverick staff Staphany and Bruce ,they were very friendly and professional. The tour was well-organised from hotel pick-up to airplane check in and to ground tour inside the grand canyon national park. The air base of maverick is only 20 min from las vegas and the air travel was only 40min one way, which really time-effective. And we had about 1 hour in Mather Point and 45 min in Angel Lodge. I would highly recommand this tour and I'm sure you will have a wonderful experience with maverick
At every stage all staff were helpful, informative and professional. This is the way to visit the South Rim.
Very professional set up. gGreat trip nto Natonal Park. Information provided and transport to high standard. Excellent day out and experience.
I loved this tour. I would highly recommend the helicopter option. The staff at Maverick are excellent and this was an experience I hope to never forget. This was the highlight of my trip to Las Vegas.
Great trip. Highly recommended. Very well organised. I took the morning flight and the helicopter option and glad I did both. It's quite expensive but worth every penny.
Fantastic. Professional from beginning to end, and definitely worth the money to do a trip which could take 12 hours in 7. Would highly recommend.
Very well organised and relaxing tour by maverick. Only a few hours at the rim but saves 10hrs by car
CALL or email Maverick to check your pickup and flight time. Ours was wrong by viator and nearly missed flight.
We did this tour the last week of September and the whole experience was amazing. The tour staff were courteous, friendly, and knowledgeable while the plane ride out to the south rim was spectacular. Would definately recommend this tour to friends and already have in fact!
Just superb, could not fault any aspect, totally professional and a fantastic experience
Excellent day and great way to get to and see South Rim which is stunning. Comfortable plane and friendly pilots and fantastic helicopter trip with great visibility all round. Coach trip into the national park then very relaxed and comfortable. Well worth it if you really want to see the truly awe inspiring end of the Grand Canyon.
most of this was cancelled due to awful weather - we got to the Grand Canyon by plane but the helicopter didnt take off and no one could see the Canyon at all due to fog. Maverick Airlines were superb throughout and I would recommend them for their professionalism
While I've been to the Grand Canyon in the past, I'd never seen the South Rim before, and this was definitely the way to see it! The pilot took us out over the deepest part of the canyon, giving us entertaining facts the whole way. Definitely impressive, and the contrast between the red canyon walls and the green forest was beautiful! The entire tour was laid out perfectly, allowing plenty of time at each stop and we never felt rushed. The free time to explore and eat our picnic lunch at the edge of the canyon was relaxing and enjoyable. Just be sure to bring something warm to wear, as it's a much higher elevation than Vegas and was chilly in the early morning. Would definitely recommend this tour
The South Rim was an exhilarating experience! Absolutely the perfect way to vacation for a day. Who knew that something so beautiful was so close to Las Vegas? The guides were informative and very hospitable to everyone who took the tour. The pilot even let my brother who was sitting in the very back of the aircraft walk up to the front and see how everything worked and controlled the plane. He was so excited to be in the airplane since his goal is to be in the Airforce. It was the absolute perfect day for my eleven year old brother and I. We both left the tour of the South Rim with life long memories and great pictures!
From the check in process to the the pilots and drivers. Everyone was so helpful and courteous that the whole process went smoothly. The flight to the Grand Canyon was much smoother than I had expected. Going over the Grand Canyon by helicopter was the best part of this trip in my opinion.
Great tour! Everyone was so helpful from the people that checked us in to the pilots (both airplane and helicopter). The Grand Canyon was amazing to see from the helicopter and I can't wait to go again.
What a beautiful day. Was so glad we did the helicopter tour as it was amazing flying through the canyon in all of its beauty and splendor. Could even see river rafters on the Colorado River. The views from the Bright Angel Lodge were also impressive. The staff of the tour company was great from the check in, airplane pilots, helicopter pilot and bus driver. They were very informative and kept you updated on the schedule the whole trip. Would highly recommend this tour to everyone.
