“Great time, great pilot, great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

I'm a nervous flyer, (so why did I sign up!) but our great pilot put us at ease. We did the Wind Dancer tour and it was a smooth sail all the way, with beautiful scenery to boot. Loved a little bit of champagne at the bottom of the Canyon. Great day, organized well, safe and nice equipment. Our pilot had a great sense of humor and we enjoyed it very much.

We are glad to hear that even though you were nervous you gave us a chance. Its great to hear that the tour was enjoyable, organized and our pilot cracked some jokes along the way:)

We appreciate you taking the time to share the Maverick moment.

Kind Regards,
A Maverick Team Member

“Great People, Awesome safe flight!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We took a Maverick flight in the Las Week of July 2014, our pilot was extremely personable and made our first flight with Maverick an awesome one. He handled the bird really well even under some slight turbulence. The staff was also extremely helpful and even helped us get back to our hotel in time before our show. I would definitely recommend this to a friend and will be going back for future flights.

“Fantastic experience for all the family.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

A well organised operation from beginning to end. We went in a helicopter to the West Rim. The pilot (Seth) was exceptional. He answered questions and showed a broad knowledge of everything from solar farms to rock formation. There was the opportunity to move seats after landing so everyone could get a window or front view. Having said that the view from the 2 middle seats was great, but not so good for photos. The stop in the canyon was great, lots of drinks to choose from and Seth was happy to take group photos for you. Only issue we found was tipping, where do you start, a small tip seems demeaning and sadly a large tip is out of the question when paying so much for the experience. We were very thankful and expressed this to Seth and he didn't seem expectant of any gratuity. Thanks for a great day. We left the hotel at 12:20 and arrived back at 5:45.

“Just do it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Took the "Windancer" tour with family. Really cant recommend highly enough as a way to see the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam, the marvelous landscape in-between and, of course, an ariel view of Las Vegas and the Strip on the way back. Shuttle pick up and drop-off to hotel make it very easy. Informative pilot. All-in-all, just do it. A memory not to skip!!

“Maverick Helicopter Tour of the Vegas Strip at Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

My husband and I recently took a late-night tour of the Vegas strip with Maverick Helicopters. It was an awesome experience. My only complaint was that the tour didn't last longer. Everyone working for Maverick helicopters were top-notch, professionals. The pilot did a great job and was very personable. I can't wait to visit Vegas again. Next time we are looking to take the Grand Canyon helicopter tour. All-in-all, this tour was fantastic and I would do it again anytime!
