What You Can Expect
During the tour, you’ll visit Eagle Point and a village of authentic Native American homes; enjoy a Native American cultural performance; and walk out on the Skywalk – the canyon’s most exciting attraction. This platform extends out over the edge of the canyon, providing heart-racing views of the canyon floor beneath you.
Also included is a seven-minute helicopter ride down to the floor of the canyon, where you’ll walk briefly to the edge of the Colorado River and hop on a pontoon boat for a leisurely 15-minute ride on the water. The canyon cliffs will tower above you as you soak in the incredible beauty. Your flight back to the rim of the canyon will reconnect you with your airplane pilot for your return flight to Phoenix.
Please note: The order of your tour is subject to change.
Aircraft used are Cessna Caravans and T207s. These high-winged airplanes (meaning the wings are above the windows, not blocking any views) are perfect for flightseeing and picture-taking. Every passenger has a window seat.

An awesome day and back in good time for a quick snooze before dinner!
From the first moment to the last, this adventure tour was the best I 've ever done and I 've done many. One exciting event after another. Plenty and timely bathroom breaks. Pilot was also our tour guide for much of the entire day and he was friendly, knowledgable, skilled, helpful, intelligent, and pretty good to look at as well. Although the south rim/Grand Canyon State Park was closed because of the government shutdown, the west rim where we were was not impacted as we were 80 miles from there. Snacks, lunch, and water was offered to us regularly - we were wanting for nothing. The Skywalk was smaller than it looked from pix we'd seen and was not as scary as my sister and I were sure it would be. It was more awe-inspiring and strange to be walking 4000 feet above the Grand Canyon floor while looking through the clear surface we were walking on. You are required to keep everything except your clothing and shoes to walk onto the Skywalk with the booty covers you are required to wear. We arrived fairly early in the day on our Friday tour of the Skyway so there weren't large crowds or even a line to wait in. Later in the day we noticed there were a greater number of people. The barbecue lunch we were served cafeteria style was run very efficiently so there wasn't a wait for that either. Food was delicious to us - we had worked up a hunger from all the walking. The walk from the helicopter down to the pontoon on the Colorado River was steep and the final ramp down was somewhat slippery. The hike back up the slippery ramp on our way back up to the helicopter was tricky - the remaining steep rocky rest of the treck back up was exhausting and I use a treadmill most days. You need to be in decent shape to make it back up to the helicopter. My legs were like jelly by the last step up but I made it. Views were great from the plane, helicopter, and walking trails. Was cool in the morning in mid -October when we went then was warm enough to shed light jackets later. FUN
