“Great Way to see the South Rim when in Las Vegas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

Just got back from a wonderful tour with Maverick. Can't say enough about it.... it was a great tour! They picked me up from my hotel at 8:30 am, 20 minute ride to the Executive Airport (very nice). It took about 45 minutes to get everyone checked in (and weighed!) and then I boarded a plane (19 seater) and off to the South Rim. Great views along the way, great pilots. After landing, they took me to the helicopter and had a GREAT ride over the canyon to places you can only see by air. After the helicopter, they took us by van into the Park and we got about an hour to walk along the rim. Just enough time to see a little bit, but great photos and a box lunch. They took us back to the airport, loaded the plane and went back to Vegas, they took me back to my hotel and I was back by 4pm. It was worth every penny ($504), great way to go!!

“Courteous, professional and overall a great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We found out about our tour from 'Stacy', a lovely lady from one of the grand canyon ticket booths on the strip. Everything went smoothly from pickup to drop off. All the staff were professional and welcoming ensuring that we had a good time. I'd recommend going to the south rim which is what we did, plenty of time to take pictures and a spacious bus and plane. Would definitely recommend this company for the Grand Canyon tour.

“Trip of a lifetime.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012

Well I don't know where to start. A fantastic experience from start to finish.

This is a slick and great operation and company. We were collected on time from our hotel. Arrived at the airport and checked in immediately. Boarded the flight to the South rim within 20 mins. The aircraft was beautiful and clean and a smooth trip. Great friendly pilots.
We were collected by bus from the airport and taken out to the Canyon. The lunch in the box is sufficient, with a turkey roll, biscuits, water and chips.
By far the most amazing experience was the helicopter trip over the canyon. The pilot was fantastic, knowledgeable and very professional. My husband was very hesitant to spend the money but now says this was our highlight of our three week holiday.

My husband is an air traffic controller and researched the company and was impressed with the operation and the aircraft.

Thank you for a wonderful, memorable and trip of a life time.

“Amazing experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

My wife and I took the Grand Canyon flight to the south rim for our 15 year anniversary on 12-7-12.The flight was smooth, the views from the plane were amazing.The pilots even invited everyone to the cockpit to see from the front windows over the canyon.Our bus guide Bruce was very entertaining and knowledgeable.The lunch they gave us was really good.Our whole experience from the time we got picked up till the time we got dropped back off was absolutely incredible. It really made our first trip to the Grand Canyon worth it!

“fantastic views”

The views were even more stunning than the west rim that we did last year, lost a star due to not enough time there to fully appreciate, Bruce the guide is a hoot
