We took the Canyon Dream tour from the Vegas Strip offered by Maverick Airlines. We were picked up on time at our hotel by a courteous driver. After a stop or two to collect other passengers, we made the short drive to Henderson Executive airport. There we waited a short time before check-in. There was a snack bar and gift... More

We booked the trip on a Helicopter to the Grand Canyon also landing in the Canyon for 30 minutes. My wife wasn't sure of going by Helicopter thinking she wouldn't enjoy the Flight. eventually she agreed to go so we quickly booked the trip with a seller near the Paris Hotel. The lady was very pleasant and not pushy at... More

BJ pilot did a wonderful job. This was just an absolutely fabulous experience. You got a great aerial view of the area. He took us over the north rim and we saw a lot of the canyon you do not see on the south rim. The view from the helicopter is amazing.

On a recent trip to Las Vegas, our trip to the Grand Canyon was a must do! I did a bit of research and decided that the south rim was the ideal. Maverick had a trip that involved a short plane flight to the Grand Canyon airport where we were met by an outstanding bus driver Michael, who took us... More

This company at least needs to train there employees to have some compassion or emotion for a helicopter ride that needs to be cancelled because of the weather (high winds). Yes, I'm all for safety first (who isn't?) however maybe the big jerk behind the counter could have a bit more sympathy for those people with children that have booked... More

My son and I took our first trip to the Grand Canyon for spring break and we were both excited to see the Canyon from a helicopter. After reviewing all of the nearby helicopter tours, I selected Maverick (Spirit Tour) because of their professional image, emphasis on safety, and price. We were not dissappointed, at all! Booking was simple, no... More

My kids and I were only going to be in the Grand Canyon for a short while and I wanted to make this part of the trip really special. I agonized over the cost for weeks and then just did it. I'm so very glad that I did! The entire operation is of the highest quality (which I want when... More

In March 2017, we took the Colors and Canyon tour offered with Maverick Tours. It was an extremely long day (13 hours) as we were picked up by Detours (a company that provided the transportation from Scottsdale to the Grand Canyon and return). The helicopter portion of the day was 45 minutes long and we were able to see both... More

We paid for a 45-50 minute for our family and from the instructions to landing back on the pad was 27 mins. Not good, especially when you ask them about it and they get very defensive. Would recommend that you make them promise a full ride or refund it. Otherwise I would give my business to another tour company.
