Vegas was our first stop on our honeymoon and seeing the Grand Canyon was a MUST! I had done tons of research on helicopter tours before we arrived in Vegas, but we hadn't booked anything yet. We actually stumbled upon a Maverick ticket stand in one of the hotels and made our reservations for the next day. The Maverick team picked us up from our hotel in a bus...we made two additional stops to pick up people and then went to their offices. We were weighed and split up into our helicopter groups and then led out to the copters. The next thing we knew, we were in the air! I was pleasantly surprised! The ride was so smooth and it felt like we were just hovering in the sky! Our trip took us over Hoover Dam, and then over to the Grand Canyon. We landed in the Canyon and had a little picnic snack with a champagne toast. It was a little rushed, but we did have time to eat and drink and take photos. Then we loaded up and were off. We stopped again in the middle of the desert to refuel and then headed back to the Maverick offices via a fly by the vegas strip. Overall, it was AMAZING!! Something we'll never forget and most-likely never do again! I can't remember the name of our pilot, but he was amazing! Very informative and friendly! I was nervous because we had a very small child in our group, but he did so well on the flight and didn't make a peep. Do the tour! You will not be sorry! It was the trip of a life-time!
