Agent scammed me on a recorded line and even though it was recorded they would not make good on the specifics promised I would book the airplane skywalk and Helicopter through Maverick airlines it was well organized and definitely worth it Go in the am afternoons are too crowded fro skywalk
This was an awesome experience from the time we were picked up by the shuttle on 8/1/18@540am from our hotel to the time we were returned by 1pm. Our First time seeing the Grand Canyon or flying in a small plane. We originally opted for flying to canyon rather than ground transportation based on the travel time factor, and were so glad we did as we we enjoyed the canyon and were back with the afternoon available for our other planned activities. It was awesome seeing the sights from the sky in addition to walking around by canyon. We were also very impressed by how well coordinated everything was by our tour provider Maverick Airlines and by the canyon. Eric our pilot was very nice and informative. Just overall an awesome, worthwhile, splurge and experience.
Awesome and well worth the money! My niece and nephew loved the helicopter into the Grand Canyon. Everyone at Maverick were helpful and professional. My only criticisms would be more time at the canyon would have been nice and the people working at the West Rim restaurants were lacking in ability.
Had an amazing experience with Maverick Airlines. We did the helicopter tour into the rim and over the canyon with the skywalk. The day we went it was very quiet so had the canyon near enough to ourslves give or take a few people. The pilot was the safety inspector for Maverick and we felt very safe in the helicopter with him. He was very informative and friendly and helpful. The skywalk had no queue so it was great walking on there with only 5 other people. In the helicopter we all had the chance of sitting in the front but we all had good views even sitting in the back. It was a day I will never forget thank you very much.
Fantastic tour and well worth the money to see one of the Wonders of the World. We done the first trip which was early in the morning. Hotel pickup was on schedule and we had a lovely clear sunny day for the trip.
Arrived at Mavericks private airport and waited on our flight to leave during this time we got to see others flying off and prior to leaving the office we got a briefing on the itinerary for this adventure.
Only one issue was the plane in the teaser video for this trip is not the one you actually fly out on but that didin't matter to me or my partner.
Our pilot was a very nice and funny chap whom gave us all great facts and pointed out important scenery/landmarks on our way to the Gran Canyon...the most recognised landmark would have been Hoover Dam.
Arrived very comfortably at the West Rim to which then we took the shuttle to the various viewing points prior to getting our complementary lunch which was either Beef or Chicken cooked by barque which was really nice. We also got time to look at the various native Indian exhibits/buildings etc which was very interesting. We didn't do the Skywalk as at 30 each we thought it wasn't worth it and you can't take photographs when on it.
We headed back to the meeting point, flew back to the airport and the shuttle took us back to our hotel to enjoy the rest of our holiday in Las Vegas.
I have attached some photographs of the scenery took hundreds! and would definitely recommend this to others.
We can't recommend this trip highly enough. The whole trip was undertaken by helicopter and this gave us fantastic views of the landscape. Jameson was a great pilot, giving us a geography lesson to make sure we got the best of our time in the air. The trip down to the bottom of the canyon was worth every penny. Thanks for a great day.
