What To Expect

Get picked up at your Las Vegas hotel and ride to the heliport.

Board an Eco-Star helicopter for your sunset helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. While you make your way to the canyon, fly over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, taking in stunning views. You can also put on headphones and listen to fun facts about the Grand Canyon as you soar.

Once in the canyon, your pilot stops your ride for a quick break. He or she lands your helicopter on a private bluff for a Champagne toast and a light snack where you can sit under a Native American Ramada shelter. This bluff sits 3,500 feet (1,066 meters) below the canyon rim and offers views overlooking the Colorado River.

Afterward, get back into your seat aboard the helicopter, and enjoy the return flight to Vegas. As you fly toward the Vegas Strip, notice the lights lit up below. Take a van ride to your hotel with the whole night still free to explore the casinos and hotels on your own.

Lake Mead National Recreation Area (Pass By)

Your Grand Canyon experience begins with you being picked up from your hotel and driven to the heliport where you’ll board your air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter. You'll fly over Lake Las Vegas and Lake Mead on your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim.

Hoover Dam (Pass By)

As you fly over the Hoover Dam enjoy the amazing views of the recently built bypass bridge. During your flight, you can listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon and its surrounds via headphones.

Flying over the hoover dam and grand canyon was the most breathtaking moment. Our pilot Jessie was brilliant, told us all the facts about what was around us all the time
Can't wait to come back with our kids!!!
Necia_S, Feb 2023
This is an experience that you cannot explain. Everything was amazing from pick up to drop off. They have thought of it all. I honestly cannot say what my favorite part was cause everything was perfect from the people we met to the views and even the music was on point. Thank you so much and we will be back with our kids!
Do It.
Stephen_U, Feb 2023
The trip was a bit pricy, imo, but it's am unforgettable one. Highly recommend. Our pilot/tourguide/bartender/fuelman, Kyle, was so good and kept us rolling the whole time. The whole experience, from booking-landing, was smooth and easy. Do it.

Amazing experience and is a must do when visiting Vegas. Shared with my lovely friend to celebrate our big birthdays. Views were breathtaking and felt very surreal to actually be there. Very organised and professional company to book with.
Worth every penny.
Riccardo_S, Oct 2022
The whole experience was fantastic. From the helicopter ride to the view of the Grand Canyon. We had very friendly guests with us.
Amazing, incredible, fantastic!
Beverley_V, Oct 2022
The most amazing experience, ever! Pilot Clint was hilarious, some great banter! The tour was incredible, from the Hoover Dam to Lake Mead, massive highlight was all the helicopters landing in the Grand Canyon and flying out in formation - seeing the Strip at sunset was incredible. Definitely one off the bucket list, this is an experience not to be missed. Can’t think of enough words to say incredible!!!!!
Ramona_T, Sep 2022
We were unable to land due to weather and we’re advised dispatch would make it right and even possibly let us go back out another day. Dispatch says they can’t handle it bc of viator. Viator says it’s up to dispatch. Long story short we paid over 1k to your airports. Don’t trust viator. Book directly so if something goes wrong you can get actual customer service

Stunning views and an excellent pilot as host in Adam.
Dagmar_C, Jun 2022
Really good trip. Appears Initially expensive but overall for the experience well worth the money. We were lucky with the weather so the evening sunset was very memorable. Adam, our host pilot, was very interesting and knowledgable. He just needs to brush up on his gags !😜
Best helicopter tour ever !
Sara_S, Jun 2022
This trip was recommended to us and I am so pleased it was ! Ethan was our pilot - he was awesome; safe, fun and informative - he was a great guide for the afternoon - he also went the extra mile to make sure everyone got a ride up front and was very attentive throughout. Excellent communication from Maverick Team from the minute we booked, clear / relevant messaging and they even called to make sure we knew where the pick up was… we were dropped back to hotel after wards so in total 5 hours and the best experience ever !
