We had just experienced an amazing trip with Maverick to the Grand Canyon. Our trip included a landing in the Canyon with a light snack and champagne. The scenery is to die for. Grand Canyon is amazing and a must see when in Vegas. Maverick's staff and pilots are very professional and pleasant from pick up to drop off at the hotel. Overall an excellent experience!!!

First, yes it is rather expensive but you can not see as much of the Grand Canyon as you do from the air. The vastness of the canyon can not be seen from the sides. When flying over you see down into the valleys and you see the sights like "Little Texas" which would not be visible from ground level. Our pilot was very friendly and informative as well as the staff at check-in. Would I do it again? No, because it's no longer on the bucket list, but I am soo glad that the wife and I got to do it together, Thanks Maverick for making it special.

We go to Las Vegas every year and always find something new to do. I would highly recommend taking a flight with Maverick Helicopters!!! They are classy, first rate, professional and so much fun! I had never been on a helicopter and it was an awesome experience. We took a night flight over the Las Vegas Strip and it was beautiful! Our pilot, Daniel, was great and a lot of fun! Not to mention that you get picked up in a limousine and get served champagne too! Definitely a big and memorable highlight in our many trips to Vegas. Definitely want to do this again and again! Thank you Maverick!

We booked our helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon to include the Skywalk. On the morning Maverick called direct to our hotel room to advise us that the Skywalk was closed due to weather conditions and offered us the choice to still go or delay. We decided to delay until the following day and could then walk the "Skywalk" and we are so glad we did - it was amazing! Very impressive service from Maverick. The pilot was very knowledgeable , what a great experience.

Just returned from a 2 week vacation that included Las Vegas, Seattle, and Alaska....whew!...and our experience with Maverick was easily the high point of our trip! We did the Grand Canyon tour with the landing on the floor of the canyon and champagne brunch. Our pilot, I believe his name is Justin, was wonderful. I was very concerned about motion sickness, but he kept the flight smooth and steady the whole time so it was never an issue. Maverick is a very professional and organized operation and quite honestly, a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We booked by phone about a month in advance, called Maverick as instructed upon arrival at our hotel, and paid upon arrival at the terminal. A Maverick shuttle picked us up at our hotel exactly when and where they promised. The shuttle driver pointed out points of interest on our short trip to the terminal, which is just a short distance from the strip. We paid and weighed in (very discreetly), and were paired off with two other couples and our pilot. You strap on a fanny pack type life preserver around your waist, and buckle in a seat harness, put on your earphones with microphone, and you're on your way. Absolutely amazing, wonderful, fantastic experience! We saw the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, the desert, canyons, a herd of wild horses, and the stunning Grand Canyon. Our pilot was very knowledgeable about the whole area and pointed out all the sites via the headphones. To stand on the floor of the canyon and look UP at the cliffs was surreal. It was truly an awe inspiring view of God's majesty. We returned to Las Vegas with a view of the strip from the air and had a flawless landing. The whole trip was just perfect....and I usually don't like trip tours. I hate being "herded" and feeling pressured to "move along"...but never once did I feel that way on this tour. The attention was individualized and our pilot never rushed anyone. It was very laid back and personalized, and gave us the opportunity to appreciate the whole experience. To anyone who is considering this tour, I would say: DO IT! I know it seems expensive, but it is worth every penny! It is truly an experience to be remembered for a lifetime!
