Your comprehensive Grand Canyon day trip begins with an incredibly scenic flight in a Cessna airplane to the West Rim of the canyon. Hear informative narration from your expert pilot while you soak in views of the Grand Canyon and other parts of Arizona's amazing landscape.
When you land, visit Eagle Point for a Native American cultural experience: see a village with authentic Native American homes; enjoy a short performance; and walk out on the Skywalk—a clear platform that extends over the edge of the canyon's sheer rock cliffs, providing heart-racing views of the canyon floor far below.
Have lunch (included) at Guano Point on the rim of the Grand Canyon, and do a little hiking if you wish. The views of the canyon and the Colorado River are spectacular.
Your tour includes a quick helicopter ride down to the bottom of the canyon. There, a short walk takes you to the banks of the Colorado River where you hop on a pontoon boat for a leisurely cruise, a perfect vantage point to marvel at the towering canyon cliffs. Fly back to the rim of the canyon to reconnect with your airplane pilot for your return flight to Phoenix.
Either schedule hotel pickup or meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport. There, receive a safety briefing and orientation to your aircraft, along with a radio headset that allows 2-way communications while in the air. Travel in either a Cessna Caravan or T207; both are high-winged airplanes perfect for taking photos and sightseeing from the air. Every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views. Your tour ends with return to your starting point after a memorable tour.
The trip started from PHX with a flight from Deer Valley Airport to Grand Canyon West a
Airport. Westwind staff was awesome and accommodating. Airplane was ready to go when we arrived. Stephen our pilot did a very professional job as pilot and host and guide for the trip. Because there were only 4 in out group, we were fortunate to be able to fly in a smaller airplane with more options for customizing our trip on the fly. Upon arrival into West Grand Canyon airport, we took a Eurocopter to the canyon floor and and then a boat trip on the Colorado. Sundance staff and Hualapai hosts were awesome. The sights were fantastic. Return trip via helicopter the the airport and then to the Skywalk on the Hualapai reservation. Interesting engineering instruction. Fun to walk out over the canyon on a glass walkway. Then off to lunch at another location on the reservation near the canyon rim with fantastic views. Did some hiking along the rim and then returned to the airport for the flight back to PHX. What a day. The value for this trip was exceptional and having a small group with a personal host made the trip memorable. Defiantly recommend it to anyone. Tip - go on a Friday or Saturday when the crowds at the canyon are lower.
Thank you so much for taking the time to review your tour. We are very pleased to hear that everything went as planned and that you enjoyed your day. We look forward to seeing you on another one of our tours soon.
From the moment we called for our reservation to the arrival time at the Westwind Air building with Lindsey and our fantastic pilot Chris to the helicopter ride to the bottom of the Colorado river to Eagle point to the Skywalk and lunch. Everyone was professional and friendly. Great Experience! Totally Recommend
Our trip was amazing and so fun. It was pretty windy and chilly while we were there but everything from meeting our tour company to the pilot, plane and helicopter ride to the pontoon boat and the skywalk was great. If there was any disappointment at all it was the skywalk. The skywalk is not as big as I expected from seeing professional pictures but it was still super fun.
I came to Phoenix to visit my son for his Birthday. I wanted to do something special and we both had never been to the Grand Canyon.The
Westwind Air Service went out of their way to make this special for us. Thank you Karla. Great flight to Grand Canyon. Lots to see to and from. Helicopter ride into the Canyon thrilling. The boat ride on Colorado River really puts all in prospective. The Skywalk was thrilling. Lunch was good and great opportunity to walk around after lunch. Having the pilot guide us through all of this was very important because signage is not always clear to understand where to go. I would recommend this trip. Also does not take all day like other bus /van trips. My son and I now have a lovely memory to cherish with great photos too.
