Pass By: Kaibab National Forest, U.S. 89a/Az 67, Jacob Lake, AZ

You will depart Tusayan, Arizona located in the South Rim of the Grand Canyon on the safest and most comfortable-tourism based helicopter in the world. On your 45-minute helicopter flight, enjoy the luxurious comfort and wraparound windows which offer breathtaking views of the Canyon.

Enjoy the fantastic views of the Canyon as you fly over the 1.6 million-acre (6,500 km²) Kaibab National Forest, which borders both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon. The Kaibab National Forest is home to the world’s largest ponderosa pines.

Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and east end of the canyon come into view – this is definitely one of the greatest views of the Grand Canyon.

Point Imperial overlooks the Painted Desert and the eastern end of Grand Canyon. You will fly through the Canyon above the North Rim heading south through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest section of the Canyon.

What an amazing way to view the Canyon! Wow! Thanks to Jeff, our pilot, for taking a pic of us at the end. He gave a nice tour in the air. We did feel rushed by the staff - even though everyone was friendly - throughout the experience, though - a bit strange given how much we paid for this. Other than that, a wonderful day.

My friend was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam. He absolutely was enthralled with the experience. Friendly service and exceptional views of parts of the canyon we never would have seen from the rim!

Pilot was excellent... the ride to the canyon was informative but also he was able to really build up to the moment that the helicopter moves directly past forest and painted dessert to directly over canyon. The views are breathtaking.

This was our first glimpse of The Grand Canyon ever. Seeing it for the first time from the air was amazing! We wholeheartedly recommend Maverick Helicopter Tours. The only disappointing part was that it wasn't very good for taking pictures. We were in the back and the pilot's shirt was reflected in the window glass and shows up in all my photographs.

So so gorgeous! There really are no words!! Daniel, our pilot, was awesome! He let us know when to start taking pics and videos for the best shots, but we spent most of the time just gaping out of the windows. It's an amazing place...
