Meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport where you receive a safety briefing and orientation to your aircraft. Travel in comfort in either a Cessna Caravan or T207, both of which are high-winged airplanes that are ideal for sightseeing from the air and taking photos. Every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views of the spectacular scenery below.
As you fly to the Grand Canyon, be amazed at the scenery below of the Tonto National Forest, the Red Rock formations of Sedona, the San Francisco Peaks, Painted Desert and the Navajo Indian Reservation.

Absolutely amazing! Would recommend...

Absolutely amazing! Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Phoenix. Customer service was top notch!
Truly outstanding. What a fantastic way to spend a day. After having this experience, I would never consider driving to Grand Canyon. The trip from Phoenix gave a great opportunity to see the interesting parts of northern AZ.
So sorry for my late scoring, I am writing this after I have come back to Japan.
I could enjoy the flight to, over and around Grand Canyon and really understand the meaning of GRAND.
Waaaaaooooh I could not find any words when the view of Grand Canyon appeared through the windscreen of the Cessna. It was so big, great, beautiful, wonderful, gigantic, tremendous, ... that I could not get any correct words.
Not only pilots but also ground staffs, they were all so kind and friendly that all my family felt so happy and really enjoyed the tour very much. Thank you!
My daughters are saying that they love USA and Arizona and are going to come again in the next summer.
The views were amazing. However, the organization was a mess. The times told by Viatur were totally wrong, and the ground operator had a totally dofferent plan. They also dont tell you as a part of the tour you will be sitting in the airport waiting to fly back for almost 1 hour instead of touring.
wonderful experience. would do it again.staff was friendly,knowledgable and courteous.our tour guide , frank was amazing.his in depth knowledge of the canyon and surrounding area, made for an educational as well as an entertaining experience. highly recommended.
My wife and I had not visited the Grand Canyon before and wished very much to view this colossal spectacle. It was just that, but the flight there was also well worth the trip. The Arizona topography is breathtaking. I highly recommend this to any and all.
