This trip is a trip of a lifetime. If you have limited time but want to see everything the Grand Canyon has to offer, this is the trip for you! We chose the optional helicopter ride and Skywalk tours and they were well worth the extra money. Everyone was extremely nice and accomodating. We thought we were a little rushed so we got our lunch to go. Turns out either way we had enough time at each stop, although we skipped the indian village at the recommendation of the pilot, to afford more time at the Skywalk and Guano Point. He was right! Each facet of the tour was amazing, from the plane ride, to the helicopter ride to the beautiful scenery. I would highly recommend this tour.
Wonderful tour! Maverick Aviation was excellent from beginning to end.
Total 5 star treatment from start to finish didn't expect to enjoy the plane ride so much but it was great. Capt Sherman is quite the professional, a linguist , friendly , engaging and knowledgable. Skywalk was fun. Hike quite fun as well' don'tiss this one'nn
OMG! Great experience with personable pilots and a friendly group of people. The barbecue at Guan Point where you are overlooking the Grand Canyon was an unforgettable experience and the helicopter ride to the floor of the canyon was equally impressive. I wish I could have stayed longer.
Everything ok just like description!The canyon is simply amazing!There's nothing else to say,just do it!
Tutto ok come da descrizione!Il Grand Canyon è semplicemente meraviglioso...Non c'è altro da dire,consigliatissimo!!
Great to see such an historic site. We paid for the helicopter ride below the rim and I would recommend this to anyone who is prepared to pay that bit extra as it made it so much more special. We consider this a once in a life time trip coming from NZ and so we wanted to experience it to its fullest and the helicopter experience really allowed this. A great experience with wonderful staff from the pick up, to the check in, to the plane pilot, to the helicopter pilot.
This tour was great! The plane ride was about 35 minutes so we had more time to spend at the Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon was beautiful and breath taking. The Skywalk was great. I totally recommend this tour.
Picked up at 06:30 on time in a very comfortable bus. A short bus ride of 30 minutes to the Heliport. Excellent services at tour company centre with shop and food facilities. We took the plane ride to the Grand Canyon which was comfortable and smooth flying past the Hoover dam. If you dont have a great zoom on the camera you will not get any close photos but we still sene it.. Then a helicopter journey into the Grand Canyon which was superb with excellent photo opportunites. Amazing views of the Grand Canyon but very cold in January so wear something warm. We then returned to the same small heliport and caught a bus. Bus run every 10 or so minutes on a round trip to the Sky walk and stopping at a couple of view points and a made up ranch. We had to be back for 11:30 from the bus tour which your left to your own devices. Wrist band gets you on the bus and skywalk and a meal. We missed the ranch out and had a very quick stop at the view point and Sky walk and just made it back for 11:30. The views are amazing. Bit disappointed you have to leave you phones, bags and cameras in lockers before going on the skywalk but its to protect the glass from damage from dropped objects. All in all a great trip with a very reliable company with some terrific memories.
We had the absolute best time on this trip. Mavericks was completely organized and professional and our pilot Andrew was just awesome. The Grand Canyon was absolutely breath taking and the BBQ meal is delicious. We highly recommend this trip.
Great way to see so much in a half day adventure. Shuttle service from hotel was excellent, airport was nice and away from McCarran, the Pilot was great, awesome views- every seat has a window, they tell you how to best use your time and what to see, and the lunch was great too!
We thoroughly enjoyed the Grand Canyon trip. Steven was our pilot and he was excellent. We did do the Skywalk my husband was very impressed that I managed it as I don't normally like heights, it was well worth it. I would recommend this trip.
Fantastic dat out cannot be faulted Maverick were absolutely first class from start to finish worth every dollar. Fantastic memories perfect day out . Would definitely recommend this trip as our day out was faultless. Thank maverick for making the day so special .
Absolutely brilliant tour. Everything about this tour was on time and professional and was an excellent way to experience the Grand canyon.
The best experience - we were on a tight timescale so booked this trip which meant we would be back at our hotel in Las Vegas by lunchtime. We were picked up as expected by a cheerful and knowledgeable shuttle bus driver who took us to Maverick's private terminal a little way out of Las Vegas. We then had a briefing with our pilot and headed off to the Grand Canyon. The pilot kept us entertained the whole way to the Grand Canyon with interesting facts and was also very attentive in telling passengers when the ride might get a little bumpy.
We didn't go on the Skywalk and felt that we had just about the perfect amount of time at the Canyon and enjoyed an amazing meal - the best BBQ beef I've ever had in my life!!!!!!
There was a bad storm when we were at the Canyon but the pilot got us back to Las Vegas in good time and we were delivered back to our hotel before lunch.
Seriously impressed with the tour company and would suggest them to anyone going to the Grand Canyon - thank you for an unforgettable experience!
Not a cheap excursion but you only do it once ! Amazing trip. 10 seater plane ride to Canyon to see the most amazing sights. Ron our pilot was great, informative and friendly. Short bus ride to Eagle Point and as we had opted for the morning trip (5.20am pick up!) we were one of the first people there and were the first to step on the skywalk which is fabulous. Have your photos done by the professionals, it's $60 for the lot on a usb but worth it as you not only get the photos of yourselves (around 15) but get photos of the skywalk in all the seasons. Then another short bus ride to Guano Point. Another fabulous photo point, walk up to the point, about 15 minutes, well worth the views. Make sure you have sensible shoes on! Come back down and have your food. We had pulled beef, mash potatoes and veg ..... At 9 am ! Great food though ! Then the bus back to your starting point to get your helicopter ride, another amazing trip. Matt, our pilot was great, and again informative, friendly, happy to take photos for you. The ride was spectacular, views outstanding. We landed on the bluff and had plenty of time to take in the sights, take photos and relax. The airlines were second to none, would definitely recommend this trip, a must.
Brilliant tour. Got picked up early from the hotel and taken straight to airport - we were in the air by 7am. Pilot very informative and pointed out Hoover Dam etc. amazing views over the Canyon. On arrival we could hop on and off the buses that went to various look outs over the Canyon and being there so early meant there were no crowds at any one place and you could pick your photo shots with no one jostling to get in. We had our 'lunch' which was included in the tour at breakfast time at one of the 'stop offs' around 9.30 and it was very good - barbcue chicken/salad etc basic but still tasted OK. We had decided not to book the 'skywalk' and opt for the helicopter ride instead down into the Canyon which was fantastic and would def recommend. Had a good 20 mins to look around and take more photos before being taken back up and then flown back to Las Vegas. Going by plane meant we were back at our hotel by 1.30 - time for more sightseeing down the strip and then lazing by our pool. Very good tour and would def recommend doing.
The tour was outstanding! The pilot was extremely friendly and the Grand Canyon was amazing.
