The ride was excellent, yet the landing point at the Canyon wasn't as impressive as the sight seeing points from the coach tour which I joined before.

Booked helicopter ride on dec 27. Canceled due to weather. Drove to west rim with no notification and upon arrival no one at Maverick front desk (shut down - no representative available). No discount or compensation provided when we tried to rebook. Can’t recommend.
