Maverick was a much larger operation than I expected . When you book the sunset trip, you get picked up via a complementary shuttle service and taken to their departure area. After a very easy check-in, you wait for your group to be called. In total about four or five groups left at the same time as us.

We were fortunate to have, Jasmine as our pilot. She made everyone feel very welcome and looked after us during the flight.

Flying over Lake Mead, over Hoover Dam, through the Grand Canyon before landing inside the canyon for a complimentary glass or two of champagne was a great experience. I would have no hesitation in recommending Maverick Helicopters.

We did the Wind Dancer sunset tour from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in December 2021. The sights were amazing and I would highly recommend that you do this on your Vegas trip – it is worth the splurge. Our pilot, Austin Lebamoff, was excellent – not only did we feel very safe in his hands, he made the trip extra fun with his jokes and the information provided about the region and local sights. Five stars to him!

Everything about Maverick was spot on.
The initial booking was very easy and straightforward, the communication backwards and forwards was top notch.
The collection from the hotel was right on time, the vehicle used was very modern and clean and the driver extremely polite and helpful.
Once we got to Maverick we were told exactly what would happen and when.
The flight itself was amazing (I won't go into detail so I don't spoil any surprises)
If you want to fly in a helicopter, you will not get a better experience than doing this with Maverick

This has been the highlight of our holiday. Our pilot Josh was patient, informative and we had already been looked after by our driver Robert who collected us from our hotel. The flight was smooth. Two of our passengers were a little nervous but again were so impressed by our pilot. Flying over the Hoover Dam was amazing and words can't describe reaching the Grand Canyon and stepping out in the Canyon. We were all amazed and flying back ( after a brief fuel stop which was also interesting to see) we came in at dusk to Vegas seeing the Strip at night. I cannot imagine ever being on a better trip and the other five in our party agreed.

My wife and I flew the Grand Canyon Sunset Tour on October 28, 2020 in celebration of our 25th. Anniversary. We had never been in a helicopter before and were excited in anticipation. Picked up as scheduled at the hotel and after one other stop we were off to the airport. The pilot may have been limited in communication to the passengers for obvious and safety reasons but when he was able to he explained the sights to us. When we landed he was most congenial and answered whatever questions we had. The strip at sunset was fantastic.

The only grievance I have is that I went to your website and booked as soon as I could to assure seats. When we checked into our hotel we were given a coupon from Hilton Grand Vacations for 20% off many Las Vegas attractions including Maverick. I had already made our reservation. I emailed you when we got home and asked if the discount could have been credited to my credit card and was told no, no credits retroactively. Had I known I would have been entitled to this discount I might have been encouraged to make my reservation at the heliport. But if I did that there may have not been any spots available. Not too happy.

Fantastic experience! Everything was very well done; the shuttle pick up at our hotel, flight over lake mead and Hoover dam then over to the west rim and landing on the canyon floor, champagne and snacks and return flight with an amazing sunset view and Las Vegas strip! Our pilot Matt was excellent and shared interesting facts along the way.

Tips: There are no restrooms once you leave the airport so plan ahead.
Passenger configuration is 6 total, 2 up front and 4 in rear. Passengers rotate to front at each of the stops.

Awesome in every way! Super organized, professionally run business. Everything from email communication to the the shuttle pickup driver to the front desk folks and the pilot were super nice, all smiles and helpful.

The aircraft was well maintained and the pilot very knowledgeable and fun. The route took us over lake Mead and the Hoover dam then down into the Grand Canyon below the canyon walls. We landed at a spot where we watched the sunset into the canyon and hiked down to get great pictures of the wonderful colors at sunset. From there we flew back to Vegas for a twilight run up and down the strip so we could see the lights of Vegas at night.. It was great.

We took our family of 5 and there was another nice couple on the copter. My entire family loved it.

My wife and I had done a similar day time trip in Vegas with Maverick back 15 years ago and thought it was fantastic then too.. they now have a lot more aircraft and employees but the service was still great.

Highly recommend!

My husband wanted to do this tour, yet I was hesitant because of the price. All I can say is WOW! It is a splurge, but so worth the spectacular experience of flying to the Grand Canyon, sipping champagne inside the canyon, and catching a sunset as we fly over the lights of the Vegas strip. Absorb it all and make some incredible memories. Travis was a great pilot and tour guide, too!

They were prompt, courteous and helpful. We needed to make a change in the hotel pickup and they made it work for both of us. The ride was comfortable and the sunset tour was amazing!
The flyover Hoover Dam and Lake Mead included a stop at the bottom of the canyon was fun to get out and walk around and allowed us to switch some seat arrangements so that each person had a chance to ride in the front and to see different perspectives of the same tour. The last leg of the flight was a great view of Las Vegas nightlights as part of the return to the airport.
The helicopter is designed for passenger comfort for up to 7 people and the pilot was helpful in pointing our some key areas along the route.
