We booked this and went in October. From start to finish it was a fantastic experience and well worth the money. The trip was very well organised and Mavericks were great to deal with. The Grand Canyon itself was an experience that will live with me for a long time. I would reckon you will only do this once and I cannot recommend this enough, book you will not be disappointed. First class experience all the way, pilot was superb and gave us lots of information along the way.
Everything was very well organised from the moment we were picked up from our hotel. The pilot was very well informed and we enjoyed the day immensely.
Absolutely wonderful views and a great pilot who shared information about what we were seeing, very friendly and very helpful; the flight to and from was fantastic and well worth the cost of the trip in itself. It was great to explore "at our own risk" without having fences and barricades between us and nature. Guano Point is a must see and we loved climbing and just taking in the views. Definitely recommend the tour.
Excellent tour, good pilot/tour guide, everything was good and the skywalk is an experience not to be missed.
This was our first Helicopter flight and it was awesome. Our Pilot was very knowledgeable and friendly, the tour interesting and the view beautiful. My family from Germany said this was an unforgettable trip.
Excellent and easy way to see the Grand Canyon. Experienced pilot able to point out and identify all of the landmarks along the route. The highlight was the descent to the bottom of the canyon. Quite a different perspective of the size and height from down there. As for the Skywalk - a bit of a disappointment actually. Probably spoilt by the helicopter ride along and down.
Another great tour would highly recommend. Pilot was very helpful.
Excellent day out. Did everything we were promised. Made even more memorable by the friendly helicopter pilot who acted as our personal chauffer for the day..
The tour was highly organised from start to finish, right from the pick-up at our hotel. The helicopter tour was briliant and our pilot was friendly, fun and informative. I would definitely recommend the below-the-rim add-on as this was the highlight of our day. The Skywalk was a bit of an anti-climax so you could take it or leave it, but worth a quick look if you are there anyway and the queues are not to big. Lunch at the restaurant left a lot to be desired, so probably worth having a good breakfast before you set off and taking some snacks!
Very convenient as they picked us up from our hotel and took us straight to the air field. The pilot, Ben, was very good at explaining everything and discussing points of interest during the helicopter journey and explained what to do when we landed. Whole trip was amazing!
Pilot was very entertaining.
Even though the weather was plaing up [we got the storm and lots of rain]
we have managed to get thruough all attractions.
I would be happy to have more time to explore the Grand Canyon.
