“The best thing you can do in Vegas, period”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

WOW. I booked the Western Journey tour and words can't describe this day. After taking off from Henderson airport we flew over Lake Meads and Hoover Damn all the way to the West Rim - and what a flight it was! Half an hour of amazing scenery and helpful commentary by our pilot Chris.

Absolutely breathtaking and it really helped that the Maverick helicopters were specifically designed for sightseeing with a lot of windows everywhere from the floor to the roof. I highly recommend spending just a bit more and go for these helicopters. You're only going to fly over the Grand Canyon once in your life.

At the Grand Canyon, I had time to go see the Skywalk, have lunch at the ranch (food wasn't anything special) and just enjoy the scenery. The Skywalk was less spectacular than I expected but being able to walk on the very edge of the canyon at Guano and Eagle Point totally made up for it.

All in all, the best thing to do in Vegas, period.

“1 for the bucket list”

Maverick helicopters were truly professional we found flying into the Grand Canyon and landing on the rim of the canyon value for money as it is really a life time experience

“Grand Canyon Heli Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

Well organised, excellent and informative pilot, in such a short time you cover so much terrain. It gives a whole different view and perspective from above. Sunset return was great.

“Once in a lifetime”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

This is the tour to take if you want to land in the grand canyon. This is the only company that can really go down into the canyon. The others that claim they go in actually don’t (we flew over there landing spot) they land on one of the top ridges. Totally worth it to land in the canyon…its just nothing like you can imagine…so very quite and just spectacular. It was great to sit on the side of the canyon and enjoy some champers and crackers (that was a nice touch) and take it all in. The whole operation is very well managed and we felt completely safe at all times. If you can afford to do it…its not to be missed!!

“Beyond awesome!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2012

We did the 6:15am helicopter tour that lands in the canyon. It was AMAZING! Our pilot, Robert, was fantastic. The helicopter was comfortable, and you can see from all seats. They rotated us around three times so that we each got to sit up front. The champagne and snacks weren't great, but I would do the exact same tour again in a heartbeat and will recommend it to friends!!
