What people are saying about Tusayan

an absolutely amazing experience. Our pilot (think it was Mike) put us at ease straightaway. went through the safety briefing smoothly and showed us how to put the seat harness, headphones and life belt on correctly. it was a fairly windy morning but we only felt a few bumps - nothing to worry about. He pointed out points of interest and we had the whole flight to take photos/videos. Our photos were taken before boarding but there was no pressure sell at the end to buy. we would absolutely recommend Maverick Helicopters. Loved the whole experience.

We had a great flight!! The plane was as expected and the we had great views of the canyon! We would totally go again! My husband and I both got a little motion sick towards the end- but noting that ruined our day. It was cool to see the canyon from that vantage point and hear all about it through our headphones!! 10/10 would recommend!!!

The excursion exceeded my expectations! Sally, the lady who checked us in was so awesome! Very pleasant and knowledgeable. The pilots were extremely kind and approachable. Tour was amazing! If you’re thinking of booking this excursion, don’t think twice, BOOK IT IMMEDIATELY! You won’t be disappointed! Enjoy!

A little windy out the morning we took off but the pilot was very professional and put us at ease. He was very knowledgeable about the park and flew us to various landmarks in the canyon.

This was an amazing tour and experience. We went to the North Rim in the canyon. I highly recommend this tour!!
