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!
Very enjoyable tour. A great way to see the Grand Canyon both from the air and on the ground, without taking up a full day. Well organised, efficient hotel pickups, friendly staff. Recommended
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.
The trip was very nice. It gave us time to come back and see a show. I wish we would have had more time to spend at Angel's Lodge. We didn't do the helicopter tour because of timing. The lunch provided was decent. I am so glad that we didn't take the shuttle.
Good tour of the GC. Shuttle picked everyone up then off to a local airport. The lounge area is chilled out with plenty of comfy seating, cafeteria, toilets etc. We then boarded the mustang maverick and were at the GC national park in approx 50mins. A short drive thru Tusayan took us to Mather Point. Our next stop was BA lodge. An hour at each and were back to the airport to depart to LV. We did see some amazing wildlife such as elks/mules on the shuttle. Overall, i would give this 4 stars rather than 5. Its an expensive tour and for what was paid I felt it merited more "ground time". We had a total of 2 hours including lunch and I felt maybe, we could have had an extra stop at another lookout point or even the national geographic centre? Maybe we could have had lunch on the bus thus increasing our time seeing the GC? I would do this tour again as its so much more time efficient than a 5.5hr bus tour but would prefer more time on foot within the GC
Fantastic day out. Well organised and felt very safe in the hands of the professionals.
The tour was organized perfectly and is recommended for those tourists, who have just a limited time for visiting the Grand Canyon. This excursion gave me a beautiful first insight into the extraordinary world of the Grand Canyon. During the retur flight, the pilot and the first officer enabled us to have a wonderful view to the Colorado River, the Hoover Dam and the Canyons. From the piont of view of the price/performance ratio I can recommend fully this company for such a short tour to the Grand Canyon.
