Traveler Tips


Definitely not for those who don't travel well, and even if u do just be ready for an unsteady ride( I'm a great traveler and literally needed the bag
Everyone gets a window, but it seemed like the left side got better views, and the wing struts blocked some views.
An enjoyable way to get a spectacular view of the Grand Canyon with a professional friendly crew - Regards to Cap'n Jack

Janet_G, Apr 2022
Great views of the canyon and some awesome pics. Our pilot, Andrew, was fantastic. Only suggestion would be to develop a better recording that actually gave information about what you were seeing. Like this “we are now flying over the South Rim which is Xx feet deep and Xx feet/miles wide.”

Couldn't get there no transport, no help wasted all that money, i thought it was from the airport near las vegas.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Hello, We apologize for any disappointment. Pick up and drop off is available on our tours but not for tours departing In Arizona. We are not sure how this confusion occurred but our website and address are listed on Viator however make sure when booking any tours from Las Vegas that you are selecting a Las Vegas offering. Thank you.

This was a truly experience. I took my parents to see the grand canyon and we could not be happier. The views are gorgeous, abd the team was super friendly.

An Amazing Adventure by Air and Land
Gina_L, Oct 2021
By air, having the opportunity to see 120 miles of the Grand Canyon was something we’d never accomplish by other mode. The views were stunning. By land, our guide Jerry took us to the spots with the most breathtaking and photogenic views. Highly recommend!

The plain ride was a bit bumpy. Like it would just drop. Several times. Plus I could smell fuel. Inside the plane so. I was a bit nauseous. However pilots were awesome very friendly and landing was very good.

Excursion worth your time/$$
John_V, Sep 2021
We booked this excursion a few days before, and website was very easy to use. The staff was so great, friendly and very knowledgeable. It was such a wonderful experience, all and more than we expected. I felt the pictures I took with my cell-phone camera turned out very well considering taken through an airplane window. Sean our pilot, again so friendly and knowledgeable. Thank You again for a memorable experience.
