What You Can Expect
Your day trip starts with hotel pickup in Sedona and transfer to the local airport. Your expert pilot welcomes you aboard your small plane and provides informative commentary as you fly over the Sonoran Desert en route to the Grand Canyon. From your small plane, enjoy views of Red Rock Canyon and Sycamore Canyon as you approach the Grand Canyon's West Rim, the traditional home of the Native American Hualapai tribe.
Upon landing at West Rim Airport, transfer to a helicopter with large viewing windows. In just seven minutes, you'll soar from the rim of canyon and descend 4,000 feet (1,219 meters) to the Colorado River, taking in astonishing views all around you.
Afterward, return by helicopter to the canyon rim and transfer to the West Rim shuttle. The shuttle follows an incredibly scenic road along the canyon rim to Eagle Point. Disembark there for amazing views and the option to purchase a ticket to Skywalk, a top attraction. Skywalk consists of a transparent bridge that extends over the edge of the canyon; the thrilling walk gives you incredible views of the canyon floor far below your feet. At Eagle Point, you also watch a Hualapai cultural performance before continuing to Guano Point for lunch. Enjoy a hearty barbecue lunch at a spot on the canyon's rim.
Your full-day tour wraps up with your return flight to Sedona and hotel drop-off in the late afternoon.
Our pilot on the plane Mike and the pilot on the helicopter Chris were great. Mike was like our guardian angel keeping all eight of us in check through out the entire day. The boat tour guides were equally accommodating, but unfortunately I do not remember their names.
Our pilot/guide, Mike, was fantastic! He watched out for us, relayed historical facts, and was funny. And the views and transportation modes-all wonderful! We felt we got our money's worth.
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! Everyone was just wonderful and the tour was a once in a lifetime experience for my grandsons and myself. All I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great way to see the Grand Canyon if you're short on time. Full-day excursion which ran smoothly, saw many of the highlights. Sedona is also a stunning place, it's great to see Sedona from the air as well as the Grand Canyon!
This was a fantastic day made even more special by Scott our pilot who made the trip for us and who told us so much about the canyon and the surrounding landscape and flew us over some fantastic scenery giving us an amazing opportunity to photograph and experience the vast beauty of the canyon. Would definitely recommend this trip!
Wonderful tour from start to finish. Very friendly and engaging service from the time they picked us up at our hotel all the way to the return back to the hotel. Plane ride was great; pilot narrated interesting facts and pointed out many sites to see and take photos. Pilot was also the tour guide on the ground. He gave us great tips to save time and get to the best sites quickly and avoid waits. Eagle point and Guano points were breath taking. Food variety was good. Helicopter ride to the river was fun. Helo pilot posed with guests for photos. Boat ride was quick; operator was informative. Despite the long day, wished it was longer. Overall, would recommend this trip to anyone.
