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!

Mavericks did a fantastic job from the time I made our reservation through to the after flight picture taking. They are extremely professional and have a very efficient and accurate system for reservations and disseminating information needed to prepare for the flight. The flight itself is spectacular. Our pilot, Daniel, pointed out interesting geological and historical places as we passed over them. He was an excellent pilot with a very reassuring manner to ease any trepidation first time flyers might have.
I’d give them 10 Stars if that were possible. DO THIS!!! It is so worth the money!!!

100% worth it!!!!! Definitely a highlight of our Grand Circle trip. Very professional organization and I felt reassured by Maverick's safety record and our capable pilot, who also had a vast knowledge of the area that he willingly shared. The scenery is spectacular and the flight provides incredible perspective relative to the size and scope of the Grand Canyon and surrounding landscape.
I would do it again in a minute!!! Including our pilot, there were 6 adults total and it was very comfortable. A/C also made it quite pleasant. Nobody experienced any flight sickness or discomfort. It was truly a fun and breathtaking experience.

Got a call a couple days before our flight saying we'd booked through a third party and our seats were actually not available. WRONG. We booked directly on Mavericks website and paid the retail price exactly so this would not happen, even scheduled at the very beginning of our 2 day trip in case something happened and a reschedule was necessary. Well, after checking the lady confirmed indeed we had booked directly thru Maverick, but alas SORRY our seats are still were not available and the only seating option was three days later AFTER we leave. We set aside this relatively big chunk of money as the big special thing we were doing at the Grand Canyon. Never got to even experience it. So disappointing when you travel far from home...

This was a great experience from beginning to end! The people that checked us in were very professional. Once our pilot arrived, he called the names for the people on our flight and we headed out to the helo. While the helo could accommodate 7 people, our flight was limited to 5 which I appreciated. Matt did an outstanding job flying, providing information about what we see outside the helo and keeping us overall entertained. Matt was a great tour guide. Also, the helo was air conditioned which was highly appreciated on a hot AZ day. The flight over the Grand Canyon was awe inspiring and this tour is highly recommended!

Thank you Maverick and our pilot Vern for the awe-inspiring experience of seeing the Grand Canyon from the front seat of a helicopter. It was worth the price to get to see the canyon in a way that can be only experienced from the air. My husband and I loved it! For those of you who wonder about the ride, we had Vern as our pilot and he was reassuring and helpful as he explained all the safety procedures in place for the passengers. Vern was very experienced and the ride from beginning to end was very smooth. My husband and I sat in a row of seats giving us a full view of the canyon. The photos and video we were able to take were incredible. The cost was more than we ever paid for a tour but we looked at it as a once in a lifetime opportunity to see things we we would never see any other way. It was great!

The entire flight was an experience on the highest level! From take-off to landing, it was fun, informative, exciting, and more! The pilot was very good at explaining the sights and answering questions. My husband got a bit queasy. So if that's an issue for you, you might want to take a travel sickness med beforehand. It was a somewhat windy day, so there was turbulence as we flew over trees before the canyon, but that's to be expected...don't worry. Just a great time and well worth the money!

Maverick assigns your seats based on what other people are on the tour and weights of individual passengers. They arbitrarily combine couples or groups of passengers to each flight over the Canyon.

There are two seats in front by the pilot and there are four seats in the back. If you are fortunate enough to get the two seats in front beside the pilot or on the left rear behind the pilot, you will have amazing views. If you are assigned the two middle seats or the far right seat, forget getting to see much. The back right window is smaller and has obstructed views. Also, our pilot kept the orientation of the helicopter such that the right side was always away from the best views of the Canyon.

I would not waste my money again, since the arbitrarily seat assignment determines your views, or lack thereof.

We are disappointed that you did not have a 5-star experience with us. Our seating is assigned by the weight and balance of the aircraft for safety. We also operate the ECO-Star helicopter, specifically designed and engineered for air tourism with theater-style seating and wrap-around glass to provide optimal visibility for the guest. We appreciate your honest review and are sorry that you felt it did not provide you with the best views of the canyon. Kind Regards, A Maverick Team Member
