My husband and I spent two days at the Grand Canyon. I booked Maverick Helicopters for the fist morning and it was amazing! Our pilot was very nice, he explained everything very throughly, which helped us feel relaxed and comfortable. It really was the best way to see the canyon. We are definitely glad we did it and would gladly do it again.

Definitely recommend this on your trip to the Grand Canyon, especially if you only see yourself coming once. The full 45-minute flight gives you a much more comprehensive view of the canyon as opposed to just taking in a few viewpoints from the same part of the rim. The pilot was very friendly and welcoming to any questions the group had. The lobby area in which you wait for your flight is comfortable with convenient access to refreshments. The pictures available for us to buy afterward came out very nice and was a quality memento to take home! I strongly encourage giving it a try; it seems pricey upfront but remember it's likely a one-time expense for an unforgettable memory for a lifetime!

Entering the canyon was a breathtaking experience. The combination of snow and red rocks was a super added bonus

I would highly recommend taking a helicopter tour of the GC! We took a 45 minute ride that included going over the south rim, flying across to the north rim and amazing views all the way. The flight was magical and informative. The pilot did a great job of keeping his talking points fresh and explaining what we were seeing (apologies to the pilot that I can’t give him a shout out – I forgot his name). He pointed out interesting features, history, wildlife, etc. Whenever the helicopter would move due to wind or draft, he was good at explaining what we were feeling and that it was normal (especially as we went up the north rim). My daughter was a bit scared, so this really helped her. I felt very safe the entire flights and my son loved it so much, he now wants to be a helicopter pilot. It was my first time in a helicopter (bucket list!) and it did not disappoint. It was a huge splurge for our family on this vacation, and I don’t regret it at all. I was in the back row middle, but still felt I got to see the amazing views (lucky you if you get front seat!). The pilots do accept tips, so keep this in mind when budgeting as they probably see a small amount that was paid for the tour. Well done Maverick Helicopters!

I have been to the GC many times but never did I do a helicopter tour. Wow what a different perspective, it’s incredible. The ride was smooth and the pilot was very knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

Thank you Captain Forrest for making our dreams come true with the most amazing arial tour of the Grand Canyon. You were friendly, safety-conscious and knowledgeable. All five of us had a trip of a lifetime.Maverick Helicopters are a solid operation with a modern embankment facility, clean helicopters and buttoned up pilots. Any safety fears we had were quickly erased when we arrived.This is definitely a splurge but it was worth it. This experience will be remembered forever!
