Our trip at the Grand Canyon was excellent. The plane was awesome. The pilots were awesome and the tour guide/tram driver Mike was awesome! This really was the best experience and well worth the money. My husband and I enjoyed ourselves 10 out of 10!

A perfect 50th Birthday

Wow wow wow.... Celebrated my 50th birthday at the Canyon.... flew there in a maverick aircraft. From hotel pick up- to landing at the Canyon the service was top dollar!!! As we landed we found it was snowing heavy. Our guide Micheal was fab, he made sure we knew where we was going, and what to expect!! As it was snowing we couldn’t get the full experience you would get on a sunny day, But he found us wildlife to look at and told us all the histories of the Grand Canyon. He drove sensibly on the treacherous roads and made sure we stayed warm and safe- we even had a lovely packed lunch which was supplied!!!! We saw a little of the Canyon when a bit of the cloud lifted. The flight back with the great pilots finished off a very memorable day!!! I could recommend this company enough!! Thankyou for making my 50th birthday do memorable!!

Great Day seeing the Grand Canton South Rim
Pamela_L

Great day! The tour is run through Maverick. They were friendly and efficient. From the driver that picked us up at the hotel, the people at the airport, the pilots, and our trolley guide, everyone was commute to making sure we had a top notch experience that ran smoothly. The plane ride offered great views on the way to the canyon and the Grand Canton South Rim was truly magnificent and any photos you have previously seen do not do it justice. We had time to walk some of the trails, you get about an hour at each stop. A little longer would have been great but it did not feel rushed. We chose the non helicopter option so we have the extra time on foot at the canyon. We highly recommend this company and this trip from Las Vegas.

One of the most incredible experiences. From booking, confirmations, to being picked up at hotel, to adventure at Grand Canyon, to return to hotel: no delays, changes, or problems. We have traveled a lot. This by far the most rewarding and professional experience. Everybody polite, knowledgeable, and efficient. Highly recommend.

Bus driver/tour guide Bruce barked orders at us and complained about working a ten hour day and being reliant on us tipping him. Completely off putting and rude. The pilots were lovely!!

We took the airplane tour while staying at Bally’s in Las Vegas. The views we saw of the Grand Canyon were magnificent! The tour guides were knowledgeable, friendly, and funny too.
