Wow what a great experience, our pilot was very informative.Following this first helicopter flight my wife is now hooked.
Very well organitzed. Our flight was canceled because of the weather conditions and was rearranged immediately. The pilot was very professional.
Simply one of the greatest experiences on Earth.
The moment of going of the edge of the canyon for the first time makes it SO worth it. Our pilot BJ was great fun and provided us with interesting commentary during the trip.
Seriously, just book it.
I've been to the Grand Canyon many years ago and come back again to do the helicopter experience which was simply amazing! The Canyon Spirit tour is less than an hour but in less than 10 minutes you are already on the canyon so you will spend over half an hour looking at this wonderful natural paradise. The helicopter can host 6 people and from each seats you can clearly see the view; our pilot (unfortunately I don't remember his name) was fun and knowledgeable telling us more about the canyon and its history. The experience is a bit pricey but still one of the cheapest among the others and it is such unique that you must do once in your life!
First class experience was had by us on the Canyon Sprint tour (the 40-minute one departing from GC airstrip). Even if the drive from Vegas was 5 hours with a Route 66 deviation it suits anyone doing a tour of the Canyons/Colorado River as I can imagine the scenery from Vegas to the Canyon is nothing to write about for what you would pay extra for (& afterwards it would be a boring flight back). But from the airstrip you are in the Canyon within five minutes and the unveiling of the Canyon the flight delivers is spectacular and is worth all the money you will pay. You see so much more of the Canyon up close (perhaps with the exception of if you did a big hike or rafting expedition) that makes this worthwhile and the pilot was engaging and well-informed throughout the flight. I probably had "the worst seat" in that I was second (back) row in the middle, but honestly you are still seeing everything and only fussy photographers would perhaps be disillusioned with a shoulder or a head po pping in shot occasionally. It's luck of the draw though as you are seated by weight. They'll try and take your photo at the start and sell it to you at the end, but just hold your nerve and ask the pilot to do you a shot from your camera at the end of the flight and they will gladly do it if you have made an effort to engage with them during the experience (I imagine it must become repetitive for them). It's not something that I would repeat but it's definitely something I'd recommend to everyone as you cannot beat that "unveiling" that this offers!
Amazing helicopter tour over North and South Rims!
My only issue is that after purchasing the voucher from Viator we had to call 2 times to confirm our booking.
An absolute must for anyone visiting the Grand Canyon especially if you are only there for a short while. The whole experience including the flight was very smooth and the staff at Maverick were friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Our pilot was great and very informative - a great way to see a lot of the Grand Canyon from a very different viewpoint
Excellent. Would definately recommend this tour to anyone visiting the Grand Canyon.
Excellent tour. Very knowledgeable pilot. An amazing experience. Fulfilled so many childhood dreams.
Very easy to find the Maverick takeoff point. Excellent views for everyone from the helicopter.
Third time at the Grand Canyon, first time the helicopter. Definitely a must!
great trip...great pilot..great flight! it's the best way to see Grand Canyon
Excellent trip. Just the right length of time. Felt very safe! Amazing views.
Was an awesome excursion. Pilot was very knowledgeable and gave a lot of insight about the canyon.
Brilliant experience. Well organised at the US end.
Weather looked a bit dodgy on our date but turned out fine.
Highly recommend for all the family.
Just incredible. 8:00 am is the best time of the day to fly. Amazing views.
Beyond Words!!! Dan the pilot did a great job of keeping everyone he could stay involved.
Our whole family 6 adults, 6 children went on the helicopter ride 2 helicopters over the Grand Canyon. Our experiemce was incredible!!! Everyone including the two 5year olds! said the helicopter ride was the highlight of our week's vacation to the Grand Canyon and Page, AZ Lake Powell. Comments such as AWESOME, AMAZING, UNBELIEVEBLY BEAUTIFUL were coming from our six grandchildren. Our twelve year old grandchild remarked that the flight was the most spectacular thing he had ever done or seen.
Our pilots, Fred and Jake, were amazing. So very personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating the entire flight, making the experience the best it could possibly be.
If you are visiting the Grand Canyon, this is a MUST! Sooooo worth every cent and more!
We enjoy the flight tremendously. We appreciated the music as well.
Excellent. Reception was clean, efficient, professional. Pilot Patrick was very pleasant and very informative throughout the flight. 45 mins was a good flight time and we covered a good area of the canyon - seeing much more than from the rim obviously and giving a fantastic aspect.
No dropping into canyon but this is due to legislation I gather. A must do!
