This was such an awesome experience from start to finish! Nothing beats seeing the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Grand Canyon, champagne, sunset, and the Vegas strip at night then on this helicopter tour.

Landing in the Grand Canyon was awesome! Our pilot, Ben, (we think) was so friendly and personable. Our 2nd favorite part was flying over the strip. We were in Group 8 on Monday at 5:00. Kudos to our pilot!

Helicopter flight is amazing Experian. Grand canyon views and Las Vegas strip at night adds on top of this and make it very unique experience. Never did a helicopter flight before and it is actually even more fun than airplane flight.

Amazing tour— terrible management
Joely

Grand Canyon was spectacular!! The tour itself was phenomenal. Maverick the company operating the tour was terrible.. The van didn’t have air conditioning, squeezed too many people into the van and a lot of waiting around prior to the tour which was disappointing. My biggest concern was our driver was very recklessly driving around the strip. Unfortunate to have this bad experience, prior to the tour bc the helicopter portion was beyond amazing.
