I am just back from a trip to Vegas with my friend, who was tied up a lot for work during the day. I wanted to set up a tour but was only in Vegas for 3 days. This tour picked up at my hotel via coach bus to a nearby airport to catch a helicopter tour of Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Colorado River, Old Volcano and the Grand Canyon! Our pilot was fantastic keeping us confident and informed as well as acting a our tour guide. The views were spectacular, especially flying into the Grand Canyon and landing at the bottom for some exploring, some champagne and some snacks. The ride back was equally spectacular. BEST TOUR I've ever been on. Worth every $1 spent.
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, well worth the expense.
It was very well organised with the pick up time - on time !
Our pilot Aaron, was very friendly and informative. The helicopter was new and in very good condition- we all felt very safe.
The views are amazing and we would definitely do this again.
The trip via helicopter to Lake Mead,the Hoover, Dam and the Grand Canyon was the highlight of my trip to Las Vegas. Not only was the flight fun (and I've been on many helicopters before) it was comfortable and exciting especially the descent and landing in the Canyon. The pilot was simply exceptional. He was not only informative but very gregarious and friendly. I would recommend this to any one adults or children. BRAVA!
Everyone from the driver who picked us up at our hotel to the check-in folks to our great pilot, Hank, this was a sublime adventure. I am afraid of heights but felt fearless on this trip. All the safety checks and confidence of our pilot made me feel very relaxed and made the trip one for the books. I'd recommend this trip to anyone who wants to see a bird's eye view of the south rim of the Grand Canyon and sights along the way. Loved it!!
What a great tour, was picked up from hotel and taken to where we got the helicopter. Our pilot was excellent sat in the front, it was amazing everything so still and clear, we set down in the canyon for champagne and even refuelled in the middle of the desert. A fantastic experience and one to tick off my bucket list, would highly recommend.
This was the highlight of our trip to Las Vegas. My husband and l and our daughter and son-in-law are so glad we decided to do this. Our pilot Simon was very informative and knowledgeable. His music was fun too! Booking the trip was easy and everyone associated with Maverick was very polite and helpful. Definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to check off a bucket list item. The Grand Canyon was majestic place to see.
We had such an amazing time visiting the Grand Canyon this morning by helicopter and can easily see why it's one of the Wonders of the World. We enjoyed views of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and Colorado River along the way and even landed inside the Grand Canyon for snacks and a champagne toast.We did the Grand Canyon Landing helicopter tour which flew out of Henderson. Transportation from and back to our hotel was included in the ticket price. All my emails prior to the tour with Maverick were quickly responded to and everything ran smoothly. Our helicopter pilot, Sam, was friendly and professional. Manny, the bus driver was also very friendly and was accommodating when we requested to change our drop off location. I would definitely recommend this tour to anybody interested in a quick trip to the Grand Canyon.
Amazing trip and a very professional service. Collected on time from the MGM Grand. Quick transfer to the airport. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and experienced. We had a smooth flight to the stunning canyon with about 30 mins to look around. Lunch is a snack so have a decent breakfast. Highly recommended
If you have a 4-5 hour chunk of time and want to see something outside of the strip, we highly recommend this activity. If you have never traveled by small helicopter or plane be aware there is turbulence that is unavoidable, especially going over the different levels of terrain. The pilots will warn you of this and do everything they can to make this a minimal issue, but the air is out of their control. Take something to calm your stomach and enjoy the experience. Highly recommended!
Amazing!!!! I was extremely nervous as I don’t like flying but wasn’t scared at all. The scenery was spectacular. One of the best experiences in my life and I’m 61! Highly recommended
Had a brilliant experience with this company. Excellent pilot, fantastic flight with views of Lake Meade, Hoover Dam and a nice amount of time on the ground with refreshments and time for photos. Would recommend this trip to anyone thinking of booking, The staff at Maverick were very professional and ensured everyone was well informed of safety procedures and that everyone had an enjoyable experience.
Excellent time @ The Grand Canyon!The helicopter experience was amazing!Anybody travelling to Vegas has to do this tour.
Fantastic experience, breath taking sights. Friendly pilot who talked use through everything. Fantastic experience landing in the Canyon with Champagne snack.Would definitely recommend this trip.
Something I've needed to do all my life and this tour did not disappoint!!Hotel pickup to flight and home again was perfect. Travis, our pilot was polite, happy and helpful.Could not have asked for a more perfect experience. Thank you Mustang Tours!!
This was an amazing experience! Our pilot, Aaron, was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Flying in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon was a great and easy way to get to the Grand Canyon and an excellent way to see a bird's eye view of the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. It was worth every penny paid!
One of the best experiences in life. Have been to Vegas couple times, but this is definitely the best because of the helicopter ride. View as stunning and the staff are nice and professional. Highly recommended.
A once in a lifetime experience which we were so pleased we invested in. Quite spiritual flying into this amazing place. So much to see and quite unbelievable how expanse the canyon was. The pilot, Jared, was lovely, happy to answer our questions and share his knowledge. I am not sure whether he put the play lost together but that in itself was genius. An unforgettable experience that everyone should do, if they can, when going to Vegas.
This was a great way to see the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas without wasting a whole day riding on a bus. From the air the canyon was seen from a totally different vantage point than from the ground and if you opt for the tour that takes you to a landing in the canyon, you get the best of both worlds. You get about 45 minutes to wander around - be careful and don't wander into a cactus or rattlesnake. This tour was definitely worth the cost! If the pilot asks, volunteer to sit up front with him and you get an even more unobstructed view of the country side and the canyon. Keep your camera ready because you can take great pictures even through the helicopter's windows.
