What people are saying about Hoover Dam

Great experience! There six people to each helicopter. Each seat is an awesome view, maybe not the middle back seat though. We landed twice, once on the top of the GC and next was for the helicopter fill up for gas on the way back. We had the opportunity to switch seats so everyone got a chance to sit in the front where it was a marvelous view of everything in any direction. Our guide was very informative, cracked jokes, and seemed to like his job. We did get a picture in front of helicopter before takeoff..think price was $30-40 for one picture but they did put it on a nice plaque for you. All in all it was a great experience despite the price. We would definitely do this again!

Helicopter & boat ride was awesome, such a contrasting perspective seeing the canyon from the bottom as the river is a lot wider than it looks from above! Bus driver was cool too with lots of stories. Skywalk was ok, but not really worth the hour queue - there’s more queues inside to get the photo. Because we did that we didn’t have time for lunch. Definitely recommend the trip though.

Travis was the best guide and safe pilot! We were a little nervous but he was cool and calm throughout the tour! He was very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor (Area 52) I’d recommend this tour to see the Grand Canyon. Views are breathtaking and life long memories!

Everything was perfect from the reservation to the return to the hotel. Best company ever for this kind of activity. The people are professional, welcoming and so attentive to the needs of the customers. I recommend Maverick 100%

It was a fun day excursion. The only suggestion would be if you choose to add on the helicopter-boat tour WHICH WAS AMAZING...get on the West Rim bus and stop at STOP 3 NEXT so you get to see the best view of the Grand Canyon.
