Absolutely brilliant tour. Everything about this tour was on time and professional and was an excellent way to experience the Grand canyon.

The best experience - we were on a tight timescale so booked this trip which meant we would be back at our hotel in Las Vegas by lunchtime. We were picked up as expected by a cheerful and knowledgeable shuttle bus driver who took us to Maverick's private terminal a little way out of Las Vegas. We then had a briefing with our pilot and headed off to the Grand Canyon. The pilot kept us entertained the whole way to the Grand Canyon with interesting facts and was also very attentive in telling passengers when the ride might get a little bumpy.
We didn't go on the Skywalk and felt that we had just about the perfect amount of time at the Canyon and enjoyed an amazing meal - the best BBQ beef I've ever had in my life!!!!!!
There was a bad storm when we were at the Canyon but the pilot got us back to Las Vegas in good time and we were delivered back to our hotel before lunch.
Seriously impressed with the tour company and would suggest them to anyone going to the Grand Canyon - thank you for an unforgettable experience!

Not a cheap excursion but you only do it once ! Amazing trip. 10 seater plane ride to Canyon to see the most amazing sights. Ron our pilot was great, informative and friendly. Short bus ride to Eagle Point and as we had opted for the morning trip (5.20am pick up!) we were one of the first people there and were the first to step on the skywalk which is fabulous. Have your photos done by the professionals, it's $60 for the lot on a usb but worth it as you not only get the photos of yourselves (around 15) but get photos of the skywalk in all the seasons. Then another short bus ride to Guano Point. Another fabulous photo point, walk up to the point, about 15 minutes, well worth the views. Make sure you have sensible shoes on! Come back down and have your food. We had pulled beef, mash potatoes and veg ..... At 9 am ! Great food though ! Then the bus back to your starting point to get your helicopter ride, another amazing trip. Matt, our pilot was great, and again informative, friendly, happy to take photos for you. The ride was spectacular, views outstanding. We landed on the bluff and had plenty of time to take in the sights, take photos and relax. The airlines were second to none, would definitely recommend this trip, a must.

Brilliant tour. Got picked up early from the hotel and taken straight to airport - we were in the air by 7am. Pilot very informative and pointed out Hoover Dam etc. amazing views over the Canyon. On arrival we could hop on and off the buses that went to various look outs over the Canyon and being there so early meant there were no crowds at any one place and you could pick your photo shots with no one jostling to get in. We had our 'lunch' which was included in the tour at breakfast time at one of the 'stop offs' around 9.30 and it was very good - barbcue chicken/salad etc basic but still tasted OK. We had decided not to book the 'skywalk' and opt for the helicopter ride instead down into the Canyon which was fantastic and would def recommend. Had a good 20 mins to look around and take more photos before being taken back up and then flown back to Las Vegas. Going by plane meant we were back at our hotel by 1.30 - time for more sightseeing down the strip and then lazing by our pool. Very good tour and would def recommend doing.
