Best tour of my life. Went by jet over South rim with Maverick. Stopped at 3 viewing points over canyon. They gave us packed lunch. What amazing scenery much better than West rim which we flew over as well. Luxurious single seat by window. 3 seats on plane have no window, so ask when booking about seat. Plane takes about...

STAY AWAY FROM ANY TOURS BY THIS COMPANY. Small buss tour on old bus, no suspension. They pack a small old van with 10 people. There is no leg room and the van is old and has no suspension. This is extremely uncomfortable for such a long trip. I don't understand how this tour company could be rated so highly.... More

A totally awe inspiring trip. A one hour trip in an small aircraft that takes you over Nellis Airforce base and the Hoover Dam. The real trip though was the Grand Canyon, we went to two differet view points, there are shops there but no hard sell. You will have seen pictures and film of the canyon but nothing quite... More

The Maverick Airlines Air & Ground tour was without fault - our bus driver in Las Vegas, our pilots to the Canyon, and our tour guide in the National Park were all very knowledge, courteous and friendly. We chose not to add the additional helicopter component and I have no regrets about this - instead we were able to see... More

We had a great experience with Maverick Tours. From hotel pick-up to drop off, everything went extremely well and without hiccups. All their staff have been very helpful and polite, Mavericks buses and planes are in excellent shape and their facilities in Henderson and the South Rim airport top notch. Our guide was very informative without being a motor-mouth, kudos... More

This trip is a long, long day. We had an excellent Transportation Specialist, named Eric. He made sure the day was informative and very fun. On a 15 hour day trip a Transportation Specialist can make or break this journey. We took this trip with the Helicopter option. It was one of the most breathtaking moments of my life. You... More

My 3 kids and myself had an absolute blast! I rated 4 out of 5 because our wait time was way longer than expected and with 3 kids it can get chaotic. Overall highly recommend!

Book this trip through grey line buses.cheapest in town.That was for ground transportation and helicopter trip.The bus trip from from las Vegas is 4hrs long each way.Bit to long if you have kids.Opt for helicopter trip only.

Decided on the Grand Canyon Explorer tour, which is an airplane flight and ground tour by Maverick. It represents a very good balance of time actually spent at the Grand Canyon-just over 2 hours, while only taking up an overall elapsed time of approximately 6 hours. Compare this with some helicopter tours, which may only stop at the West rim... More
