Worth every cent! Could not recommend any more. Every element of the day was organized to a tee. Every member of staff was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. For anyone unsure whether to go the extra mile and take the plane to th Grand Canyon.....do it! You wont be dissapointed!

Although you won't be spending much time in each of the park location you visit, about 1 hour staying in places, the best thing about this tour was the airplane trip.
Not only does it makes the day more productive, as you will be back in the middle of the afternoon and be able to do more stuff, you will have a amazing a privilege view of the canyon and the environment from above, it's quite a unique scenery.

We chose the South rim due to research suggesting this was the true Grand Canyon, not the tourist side. Since the South rim is controlled by the National Park Service, you can not fly into the canyon by helicopter but the plane ride there was awesome and the views were magnificent! On the flight over, the pilots let us go into the cockpit and see the view they had which was definitely a highlight for me. The box lunch we had was delicious and everyone was friendly. I wish we could have had more time there but our time in the Vegas area was limited. Definitely recommend this tour and tour group!

We were so looking forward to this experience and it didnt disappoint. As it turned out we had a private tour for our party of 6 people. The views are breathtaking and all the staff are polite and professional. Next time I will wear an extra layer of clothing!

Great trip and the entire time we were on the plane out to the Canyon and the entire time we were on the Helicopter we were treated to a great and informative tour. Great guides very personable and made the trip.

We had a wonderful trip to the Grand Canyon. From pickup to drop off the staff were all really friendly. Bruce our guide at the Canyon was on top form.

Maverick airlines is 1st class . Their facilities and aircraft looked brand new.
Staff was very courteous and professional.
Glad we decided to go to the south rim as it is much more impressive than the west rim.
Most people take a copter ride to the west which is more desert and only 2000 - 2500 feet.
The south rim is nearly 6000 feet and very scenic.
Depending on the time of year, dress accordingly as it can be a bit breezy an chilly up there.

This trip was more than we expected it to be!
Loved the small airplane to/from Las Vegas. Pilots we super friendly and allowed us into the cockpit for photos
Helicopter flight was great with another friendly pilot who pouinted out various aspects of the view
Great time in the National Park which we didn't expect. The transport was great and the driver was absolutely fantastic, full of information and tips. Can't praise him enough!
Great lunch too!

There was absolutely nothing not to like! So glad we paid extra for this trip rather than just flying out to the West Rim!

Hotel pick up was 20 mins late but apart from that we had a fantastic day. Very well organised, the commentary on the flight was knowledgeable and got some great views. We flew over the Hoover dam and west rim of the canyon before landing at the South rim. Some amazing photo opportunities and no attempt made to try to sell us anything extra. The only thing is we didn't know that the South rim is 10 degrees Celsius cooler than Vegas so had underdressed and felt very cold. Take a jumper!

The trip was well organised and a must. We just about managed but should have took a jackets as was a bit cool on plane and 10 degrees when landed. Warmed up latter on. Views we awesome!!!!! Enjoyed every minute. Helicopter is a must if you can afford it.

From pick up at the hotel to drop off this was an excellent trip and we would recommend it to anyone wanting to see the Grand Canyon. The flight organisation was very professional and we felt completely safe in their hands. Bruce's commentary on the bus tour was also very informative.

This trip was fantastic and I will tell you why. We were given a time for the pickup from our hotel and that was the time the coach was there.In fact we went to the second pick up and the driver was 5 minutes early so he waited until the pick up time. The trip to the airport was easy and the checking in was effortless. We waited for our flight and while waiting you could purchase coffee drinks etc. Our group were called together and taken to the aircraft. There was photo opportunity with one of the crew members. Maverick Airways were very professional. The scenery flying to the GC was spectacular. Our guide for the trip was also on board and upon touch down he took over , Bruce was funny and interesting and made the whole experience a very enjoyable time.
For this who are going there for the first time, I would like to help others by saying that whatever temperature you left, the Canyon will be 10- 15 degrees colder. remember to take a fleece and waterproofs/umbrella , the weather can be unpredictable and the last thing you want is to be cold. Sensible shoes is the order of the day.
This trip, if you only do it once is well worth the money. Well done to both Viator and Maverick for a very well run, slick operation.

Picked up at our Las Vegas Hotel by Stephanie. Chatty, informative and a safe driver. Very well organised Maverick signing in staff. Our Pilots introduced themselves and took us to our aircraft. Photographs were taken before we entered the aircraft. The take off was perfect with our propeller aircraft. During the flight we were given the chance to speak to the Pilot who also took selfies with us and he took photos around the cockpit and of the start of the Grand Canyon. When we landed there was a great looking red trolley type bus ready to take us to the best vista sights at the south rim of the Grand Canyon. We had a packed lunch during our visit, turkey roll, crisps, a cookie and a drink, very tasty. We had approximately just over 2 hrs at the Grand Canyon. We went to Angel Lodge and Mathers Point. stunning views of the South Rim. Some of our party took a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon, which was an extra to the Tour. We were then driven back to the airfield where our Maverick aircraft was waiting. I had previously taken a bus tour to the Grand Canyon which lasted all day and back late evening. So glad we choose to fly there this time. This time we were back in Vegas with plenty of time to enjoy the pool. Well done all Maverick staff and Pilots.
