My friend was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. He absolutely was enthralled with the experience. Friendly service and exceptional views of parts of the canyon we never would have seen from the rim!

Pilot was excellent... the ride to the canyon was informative but also he was able to really build up to the moment that the helicopter moves directly past forest and painted dessert to directly over canyon. The views are breathtaking.

Pilot was fantastic! Service was great. If you want a great flight over the Grand Canyon Maverick is the way to go

This was our first glimpse of The Grand Canyon ever. Seeing it for the first time from the air was amazing! We wholeheartedly recommend Maverick Helicopter Tours. The only disappointing part was that it wasn't very good for taking pictures. We were in the back and the pilot's shirt was reflected in the window glass and shows up in all my photographs.

The only way to see the Grand Canyon is by helicopter! Money well spent. Our pilot Matt was very nice, funny and knowledgeable. Helicopter was spacious and clean. All staff professional and courteous. Best part of our vacation. Thank you

So so gorgeous! There really are no words!! Daniel, our pilot, was awesome! He let us know when to start taking pics and videos for the best shots, but we spent most of the time just gaping out of the windows. It's an amazing place...
