  • Grand Canyon: Discovery Air Tour

    1. Grand Canyon: Discovery Air Tour

    Experience the grandeur of the Grand Canyon South Rim on an aerial tour that is bound to captivate you.

    Your flight leaves from the Grand Canyon national park terminal and takes you over the Kaibab National Forest, Kaibab Plateau, Confluence of Colorado, Little Colorado River, Imperial Point, and Zuni Corridor.

    Once onboard your plane, sit back and get ready to enjoy the thrill of the incredible scenery this natural wonder has to offer. All seats provide unobstructed views for sightseeing and photography through the specially designed oversized windows.

    This Grand discovery tour is perfect for families and for individuals who have limited time yet wish to enjoy all of the beauty of the Grand Canyon.

    This was our first time in a small plane and so well worth it. We didn't know that in such a limited time what we were able to see. It was unbelievable and something I would recommend anyone to at least do once in their life. Our pilot Jack was very friendly and informative of the Canyon. The amount of views and angles you see from above is indescribable in words. My pictures are phenomenal and my memories will last me a life time. I would recommend this tour to anyone.

  • Grand Canyon National Park: Helicopter Tour over the South Rim

    2. Grand Canyon National Park: Helicopter Tour over the South Rim

    Head to Grand Canyon Airport at Tusayan, Arizona for a helicopter flight over the magnificent beauty of the Grand Canyon. Depart from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and soar above the Kaibab National Forest for some amazing views of the Marble Canyon and Point Imperial. Watch in awe as the South Rim gradually drops away, providing one of the most memorable views of the entire canyon. Fly through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the canyon. See some of the oldest exposed rock layers in the world. Relax as you take in the views from a state-of-the-art ECO-Star Helicopter with individual leather seats, wraparound glass for outstanding visibility, and exceptional noise-reduction features both inside and out.

Chris and Dale were not only expert pilots, they were excellent tour guides. My trip over the South rim was spectacular! I actually thought I had been scheduled for a helicopter ride but when I learned I would be doing this activity and it lasted so long, I was overjoyed! I got to see panoramic views of the canyon.

This was without a doubt the highline activity of our 23 day/7 National Park tour. The flight took us for 49 minutes over some of the most beautiful parts of the est, north and south rim. The plane is quite comfortable and the professional dialog helped provide interesting and education to the event!

Was such a unique experience to view the Grand Canyon from the sky. Truly an amazing experience.

The pilots were very friendly and the narative was helpful.
