  • 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.

  • Good tour if you have limited time. Helicopter flight was quite short but did have full visibility.

  • Let me start by saying that the 25 minute helicopter ride was absolutely amazing. My issue with this tour is that it is incorrectly advertised. Please be aware that by adding on the helicopter option to your tour, you are forefitting the best view point of the canyon and only see bright angel lodge.

  • 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.

  • It was an amazing experience. I would do the adventure again it was that amazing.

  • 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!

  • We were bumped twice for this trip, once because Maverick decided to perform maintenance on the plane AFTER we were accepted on a certain date and then because of the Trump visit. Makes sense to me to pre-allocate a slot to maintain an aircraft and block the date out so guests cannot be booked on that day but what do I know. The operator on the phone had a take it or leave it attitude and we had no option but to accept the West Rim rather than our original South Rim option on the only date we had open on our short trip. The Viator blurb describes a gourmet lunch box included. No idea why Maverick feel the need to use the word gourmet, which is absurd. It was a piece of chicken and mash dolloped onto a paper plate. Perfectly adequate but to say gourmet was just silly. Maverick should rather train their pilots to know where this feast is served. He told us we could eat at either Station 2 or 3 but not in the Skywalk Restaurant. At Station 2 they had never heard of Maverick and we queued for lunch only to be turned away. Courtesy of a waitress, she told us we had go to the Guano restaurant at Station 3 and, sure enough, that's where lunch is served. Something that we could have been told at check-in but the staff there were generally discourteous. Best of all, on the security leaflet we were given, the last sentence states that gratuities for the pilots are accepted and appreciated. This was encouraging. Whilst I appreciate the USA would shut down as a country if ever gratuities were eliminated, you want to believe, prior to flying, that Maverick pay their pilots a decent enough wage, but apparently not. This was a concern. Or maybe you are supposed to tip them as gratitude for bringing you back alive? The bus drivers and pilots expected grats but not the check-in staff who are apparently paid adequately. Go figure. As a final salvo, we asked if possible to please be put on a bus with the fewest drop-offs on the way home as we had theatre reservations and were flying today only becase we had been bumped. The response? When it came to loading the buses, Maverick forgot us altogether!! The 4 of us were left like lemons like unwanted players being picked for the school team. Eventually, they just shoved us onto one of the 4 buses. Unsurprisingly, I would not recommend Maverick and direct you to another company. I would also not recommend the Skywalk. For 22, you get only a very marginal better view and they forbid cameras and cell phones so you cannot take any pictures so that they can skin you for the pictures they take of you to sell at an exorbitant price.

  • It was an awesome tour. Entire duration of the tour was so well taken care of....thoroughly enjoyed

  • 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!
