“We are proud to partner with Pink Jeep Tours to offer this unique, up-close-and-personal adventure,” said Bryan Kroten, vice president of marketing at Maverick Helicopters. “The Grand Canyon is one of the most remarkable natural wonders in the world and is a must-see when visiting Las Vegas.”
The 10 to 11-hour excursion takes guests to the Grand Canyon West Rim on a personally guided and narrated excursion in Pink Jeep Tour’s iconic four-by-four Tour Trekker. Along the way, adventurers experience unsurpassed views of the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Mojave Desert and Joshua Tree Forest.
