This was a fantastic experience and one that myself, my husband and our three friends will not forget.
We were picked up at our hotel by minibus and taken to the Maverick Helicoptors just outside central vegas where we waited for half an hour before the tour started. Our pilot was Jon and he was very informative and funny, giving us facts about the surroundings as we flew over. I especially like the music soundtrack he compiled, TopGun, Matchbox 20 and Taylor Swift!
The sights were incredible and we felt safe at all times. We flew for around 45minutes before landing within the canyon and having 30 minutes to explore and take photos. Jon then provided champagne, soft drinks and light snacks. We then flew back with a quick refuel on the way.
This was an excellent trip and one I will definitely recommend to those visiting Vegas.
Was very impressed with this tour. From the staff who answered the phone call to confirm the booking, to the pilot himself, everything was very professionally done. The pilot (Connor) was engaging, knowledgable and had a great sense of humour. Seeing both Hover dam and the Grand Canyon from the sky is breath taking. Along the way, our pilot took the time to point out sights that one may miss from the sky. He shared the history of local sites, the geology of the Grand Canyon and his personal experiences. All in all, I would highly recommend this tour.
What an experience!!! Our pilot was friendly and provided many interesting facts about the area and the scenery was breathtaking!!! Was able to cross off a bucket list item with this excursion.
Fantastic tour. We booked this tour from Sydney 3 months in advance and had no problems. All the staff were fantastic and our pilot John was great he knew everything about the canyon and more. Landing in the bottom was excellent. A must do when visiting Las Vegas.
Excellent from start to finish. Our pilot Mike made the tour very interesting with his extensive knowledge of the area and together with the champagne picnic this made it one of the highlights of our holiday.
An awesome experience that I would recommend to anyone interested in seeing the Grand Canyon. The pilot takes you through a guided tour of the area and answers all your questions. We landed and had a small picnic in the canyon. This is a must do attraction when your in Las Vegas
Totally worth all the time and money spent on this activity. I really want to do it again and soon!
The highlight of our holiday! Such a professionally set up with fantastic friendly and informative staff from start to finish! The trip itself was out of this world! So beautiful! And all topped off with a glass of bubbly....and a marriage proposal next to the Colorado River! Amazing! :-) :-)
JUST OUTSTANDING --- Copter was new - seating was great - flight was great and fun - the leader was super -- could not have chosen a better way to see this side of the canyon.
A really great Grand Canyon tour. I have nothing bad to say about the whole experience. From the time you get picked up from the hotel to the time you make it to the airport, the staff from Maverick treats you like a VIP. Our pilot was friendly, funny, knowledgeable, and just an overall enjoyable person to be around. The flight was amazing and smooth with views of the Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon that can't be beat. Landing in the Grand Canyon was a great photo op and a chance to get an up close view of the Colorado River and the Canyon itself. I will definitely be taking another trip with Maverick the next time I'm in Vegas.
