Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered

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.

The entire staff is very hospitable. Great customer service throughout the entire experience. The lack of A/C for both the shuttle service bus & Helicopter needed to be addressed. It was extremely hot & uncomfortable given it was 109 degrees. Other than the A/c issue, it was a great time & beautiful experience. Awesome Informative pilot. Thx Mr. West for the safe flight. The Grand Canyon is AMAZING!!!

Worth every penny! Hunter, our pilot, was phenomenal! The beauty around us was breathtaking. So thankful we did this tour. If you are getting picked up at The Venetian, make sure you are at Ground Transportation and not the Uber spot. Venetian told us the wrong place and even though I was talking to the tour company while walking to the correct spot, our amazing driver, James, told us they were telling him to leave us. Thankful he didn’t! And we arrived at the next pickup right on time!!!

Torturecopter! Come and be boiled alive by Maverick Helicopters!

Horrible experience followed by even worse customer service. Avoid this company like the plague. Do NOT ride this helicopter. This is literal torture. If you want to be trapped in a 100 degrees hot box then you're stronger than me. It is cooler outside in the Las Vegas desert than it is inside the aircraft. If you want to experience some symptoms of heatstroke this is a great place to try it out! When one of the other guests told the pilot that "he may want to get the AC looked at" the pilot admitted that something was wrong with it and even apologized for it and he stated he would look at it when we got back. During the start of the flight the pilot was getting so hot that he was sticking a temperature gauge into the fans and checking the temp. The thermometer clearly indicated the AC was not working at all. The fan was working but not the AC which is vital in Las Vegas summers when it is regularly above 100 degrees. If you're paying $500 you expect to at least have some cooling aboard the helicopter. Everyone aboard my helicopter was so completely soaked in sweat we had to pour water on ourselves and hold wet rags atop our heads to stay in a normal temperature range. When we stopped in the Grand Canyon after a 40 minute ride I was not even in any mood to walk around or take pictures. Then we get back on the helicopter for a 15 minute ride for them to fuel up. This is the only place with a little wind so we can finally cool down a bit. This is followed by another 30 minutes being shoved in to a suffocating small aircraft with 6 other people who are all pouring sweat. I think you can imagine that it doesn't smell or feel the best. I never get motion sickness (I ride in cars for long periods of time, take many flights, have rode in other helicopters, play VR, etc etc.) I got so sick from the heat that immediately upon landing I had to go back to the hotel. I also had severe heat rashes all over my body from the heat of the helicopter. I have also rode in other helicopters in hot weather 90-100 degrees and was not even the slightest bit uncomfortable after hitting the sky. There is very clearly something wrong with this aircraft and they don't want to be held responsible for it. I want to point out that the pilot was very nice but there was nothing he could do since we were already in flight when he realized the AC didn't work. The customer service on the other hand is horrendous. They asked me sarcastically and rudely if what I wanted was "to wear a blanket in the helicopter" since I expected it to be so very cold. I'm not expecting a refrigerator aboard the aircraft but I am also not expecting for my clothes to be dripping in sweat to the point you could literally wrong out water. Absolutely horrible customer service representative Mike. They said no one else on any other helicopters complained. Well that's not surprising since it was specifically a problem with the helicopter I was aboard.

Sights, landing in GC & pilot (Ben) were awesome! Entire operation from hotel pickup to drop off and everything in-between were top notch. I chose to go early (1st flight out) and had a good portion of the day to do other things.
