Tour Driver Gary Rice is a maniac - dont put your family at risk!! Great Tour but totally spoilt by the idiot driver Gary Rice. The bus was full so my 16 year old son had to sit in the front seat next to the driver. He drove like a maniac - often touching 85mph and swerving lane to lane driving right up behind the vehicle in front. Often picking up hand written bits of paper to read while driving on the freeway!! Five minutes before the end he stated that his shift was finishing and that he would leave us in the hands of another driver who would "drive fast as hell to get us back to our hotels"! When I challenged him the liar stated that he doesn't drive over 70mph. I explained that I sat behind my son, above the stairwell and had complete sight of his driving and his speedo. I telephoned to complain and was told that it wold be taken very seriously. They were to call me back. Got one call to say that it would be addressed on the Tuesday after the bank holiday but still haven't received a call. Clearly the company don't care about their driver behaviour. This guy is an accident waiting to happen - don't get on a bus to be driven by Gary Rice.

Maverick is such a professional company from the moment you get picked up from your hotel on their shuttle service to the moment you get on the helicopter. Our flight was with Tyler who was such a great pilot and guide. The flight itself was very smooth and the helicopter had amazing views all around the cockpit. Also you get switched around so you get a chance to get an upfront seat. This was our first time to the canyon and we landed at the bottom which was stunning and Tyler handed out snacks and drinks and answered any questions we had. We then took off and landed on the rim where we had 2.5 hours to go check out the sky bridge and guano point. The lines at skybridge get long so knock that out first and spend the most time at guano point. Our ride back was so relaxing and we had an amazing time. Thank you again Maverick helicopters and Tyler for an amazing experience
