This was a beautiful way to see the Grand Canyon! At first, I thought it’d be better to enter the park to do a walking tour but with the line to enter being so long, the air tour was perfect! I really liked how the audio narration included historical facts when we flew over certain areas, but didn’t over-narrate—there were moments of silence allowing me to take in the full beauty of the canyon. Highly recommend taking this air tour especially if you’re looking for an alternative to a walking tour of the park. The staff and pilot were very nice and it’s an unmatched experience being able to see the Grand Canyon from above! Great value!

Excellent views, decent audio log. Don't expect much interaction, it's more like a cable ride where you get on the plane and run a preprogrammed route. Still enjoyable. The plane ride is half the cost of the longer helicopter ride, so a good value.
