What You Can Expect

Best Grand Canyon Landmarks Tour by Airplane

Scenic Aerial Tour of Grand Canyon National Park

Set off from Grand Canyon National Park Airport on your morning or afternoon airplane tour of Grand Canyon landmarks. As you ride aboard a comfortable Vistaliner plane with panoramic windows, listen to narration about the geologic forces that helped create the dramatic canyon and surrounding terrain and the various peoples who have lived there.

Keep your camera ready as you fly over Zuni Point — one of the few lookouts on the South Rim without a road or trail — and marvel at the crimson canyon and plateau covered with cacti. Continue through the Zuni Corridor and see the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers.

Get a closer look at the Desert View Watchtower, a popular vista point on the South Rim, and glimpse the gorgeous colors of the Painted Desert in the distance. See the remote North Rim, including its highest viewpoint, Point Imperial. Admire the Kaibab Plateau and dense greenery of the Kaibab National Forest before returning to Grand Canyon National Park Airport at the conclusion of your 40-minute aerial tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

my husband loved this it was amazing

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

We called in 24 hours in advance of our flight and were told that we were good for an 11:00 departure and to be there at 10:30. We arrived at about 10:00 and were told that we were good to go for a 2:00 departure and to come back at 1:30. There was obviously a slip up in the scheduling. Long story short, your personnel went above and beyond to make things right with us and we ended up on a 11:00 departure helicopter ride....in the front seat. It was absolutely fantastic. We have bragged on your company to all of our friends we also bragged about the flight.

I couldn't have asked for a better tour of the Grand Canyon. I'm so glad I made the purchase.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2015

My tour never happened. So much for your 24/7 help line. I received a pro forma reply that my message would be reviewed within 12-24 hours. I have still not received a reply. I originally reserved an air tour of the Grand Canyon to originate at Las Vegas. When I called to reconfirm my reservation, the origination point had been changed to Tusayan Az. I could not make hat drive with the time I had. Please review your help line process
