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!

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.
