Get picked up at your Las Vegas hotel and ride to the heliport.

Board an Eco-Star helicopter for your sunset helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. While you make your way to the canyon, fly over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, taking in stunning views. You can also put on headphones and listen to fun facts about the Grand Canyon as you soar.

Once in the canyon, your pilot stops your ride for a quick break. He or she lands your helicopter on a private bluff for a Champagne toast and a light snack where you can sit under a Native American Ramada shelter. This bluff sits 3,500 feet (1,066 meters) below the canyon rim and offers views overlooking the Colorado River.

Afterward, get back into your seat aboard the helicopter, and enjoy the return flight to Vegas. As you fly toward the Vegas Strip, notice the lights lit up below. Take a van ride to your hotel with the whole night still free to explore the casinos and hotels on your own.

Really good trip. Appears Initially expensive but overall for the experience well worth the money. We were lucky with the weather so the evening sunset was very memorable. Adam, our host pilot, was very interesting and knowledgable. He just needs to brush up on his gags !😜

This trip was recommended to us and I am so pleased it was ! Ethan was our pilot - he was awesome; safe, fun and informative - he was a great guide for the afternoon - he also went the extra mile to make sure everyone got a ride up front and was very attentive throughout. Excellent communication from Maverick Team from the minute we booked, clear / relevant messaging and they even called to make sure we knew where the pick up was… we were dropped back to hotel after wards so in total 5 hours and the best experience ever !

You are flying over the Hoover Dam and stranding in the Grand Canyon in less than hour. Our pilot was outstanding, communicative, knowledgeable and reassuring on a windy evening. Amazing piece of kit to get you there.

Brilliant from start to finish! If you're considering a helicopter trip this is the one to pick. The set up was spot on, communcation was great and the flight was excellent. All on time with pick ups in a limo van which we didn't expect! Our pilot, Buck, was really great he was calm and professional. We had a windy day flight which was a bit worrying but because of Bucks manner we all felt safe especially as 2 of us were really nervous passengers. The scenery was amazing, information about the area was good and the stop on the ridge was a plus point as our flight was made even more memorable as it included a marriage proposal!

Tour was beautiful! The guide had everyone switch off in the front of the helicopter to ensure fairness. The snacks were soda, water, champagne, peanuts, and pretzels. Had about 45 minutes in the canyon which was perfect. Loved it. Flew over the canyon and lake mead, quickly saw the Hoover dam, landed in the canyon, flew over some land, and then flew over the strip at dusk.

This was such an awesome experience from start to finish! Nothing beats seeing the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Grand Canyon, champagne, sunset, and the Vegas strip at night then on this helicopter tour.
