My Framily of 19 people visited the Grand Canyon on July 18. 9 of us did the airplane tour and all 19 did the hummer tour. Captain Jack was amazing. He navigated that small plane effortlessly. We felt very little turbulence and he made us all comfortable. He’s also a very funny man. The views were out of this world. If you aren’t afraid of small planes this is definitely a MUST do tour. Thanks Captain Jack!!!! Our hummer tour was super fun and adventurous. Stoney was our Tour guide and he was extremely fun, talented and took amazing pictures. He guided us to the perfect spots to take amazing photos. Thank you Stoney for the best experience ever!!!!

This was the perfect way to see the Grand Canyon from a different viewpoint when a mule trip wasn’t an option and a helicopter tour was too pricey for this family of 4. We loved seeing the Colorado River, which is missed from all of the vantage points we could visit in this readjusting/post-Covid world. Really a special and unforgettable experience for all ages!

The best of the best in tours at Grand Canyon

Our fixed wing aircraft tour was fantastic. Awesome views from both sides of the airplane as our pilot tried took us across the Canyon perfectly. Our Hummer Tour was also exceptional. Our driver and tour guide was Jerry. Warm, friendly and informative tour guide, and a very safe and careful driver. He not only shared lots of good information about the stops we made, but also shared with us about his Native American heritage, including teach us a few words in his tribal language and sharing part of song his deceased grand father sand to bless travelers who visited him. Outstanding!

This was a great experience! Captain Jack was a great pilot, smooth take off and landing. He was sweet to check in with my younger son who was nervous about flying. Captain Jack also took time to point out interesting points not mentioned in the audio tour. This was worth the money! So easy to book, board. We got to see the Grand Canyon and not have to crowd in with the summer tourist crowds.

We were at the North Rim the day before our flight - was interesting to see it from the air; after the flight, we drove through the South Rim - again, interesting to see it from a different perspective. Great scenery from both air and ground.
