Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

Begin with pickup at your hotel in Las Vegas, travel to the heliport to meet the pilot, and board an air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter. Settle into a comfortable seat with personal headphones—if desired, you may listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon throughout the flight—then lift off for the flight across the desert. On your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, fly above Lake Las Vegas and Lake Mead, then see the Hoover Dam from the air, with perfect aerial views of the recent bypass bridge.

Catch your first glimpse of the Grand Canyon, then dive below the high desert to touch down on a private bluff 3,500 feet (1,067 meters) below the rim, and just 300 feet (90 meters) above the Colorado River.

In the shade of a traditional Ramada shelter, enjoy a Champagne toast and light snacks, chat with the helicopter pilot, or simply enjoy the scenery in an exclusive, uncrowded location. After your time at the bluff, board the helicopter for the flight back to Las Vegas, passing over the Strip on your way to the heliport, where you meet a driver for return transfer to your hotel.

Please note: Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older are required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Had a great time, from pick up to drop off. Would recommend. Only gave 4 stars as there was no toilet available when we landed at the canyon maybe a portable loo would be a good idea

The trip was amazing. I felt totally safe with our pilot Jake. Super nice and super accomadating. The views were stunning and when Jake wasn't telling us information, he was playing great music that seemed to fit perfectly with the view. Thank you Maverick and Jake for a wonderful memory!

Viator gave us wrong pick up time!!!

Really bad start to the tour as VIATOR sent us our electronic tickets with a pick up time of 08-00. Unfortunately this was the start time of the flight and our pick up time was 07-00. We did manage to get a taxi at our own expense to the airport and the check in was smooth. The Maverick helicopter company are excellent and would highly recommend them, but double check with Maverick when your pick up is. One of the Maverick employees did say that Viator are always messing up……. This leaves me to believe it is a known problem, so why aren’t Maverick doing something about it????

The whole experience was amazing. Friendly staff and fantastic pilot/guide. The view from the helicopter is incredible and standing at the bottom of the canyon next to the colarado river is an experience well never forgot. Worth every penny. Wear trainers or similar to get around easier in the canyon.

Most forgettable. Never materialised as we were never picked up due mix up of pick up point. Despite waiting from half an hour before. Wish the company shared driver's number to coordinate. If this is their view of a paid customer service, obviously it can't be recommended to anyone else. Total loss of money.

When I booked, I did feel it was a little expensive: However having experienced the trip, I have to say it was truly amazing, an experience which will stay with us forever and was worth every penny. From pick-up, to the trip itself and even the return, it was first class all the way and extremely professional. The pilot’s knowledge and commentary was excellent and friendly throughout. The Grand Canyon was amazing and to be able to land in it and walk about and have a glass of champagne was totally surreal. My Wife was apprehensive at first having never flown in a helicopter before; But within seconds of takeoff she couldn’t stop smiling and was totally relaxed. The views of Las Vegas and the surrounding area were amazing and we took dozens of videos and photos throughout the trip. Definitely one to cross off the bucket list!!
