What To Expect
When you land, visit Eagle Point for a Native American cultural experience: see a village with authentic Native American homes; enjoy a short performance; and walk out on the Skywalk—a clear platform that extends over the edge of the canyon's sheer rock cliffs, providing heart-racing views of the canyon floor far below.
Have lunch (included) at Guano Point on the rim of the Grand Canyon, and do a little hiking if you wish. The views of the canyon and the Colorado River are spectacular.
Your tour includes a quick helicopter ride down to the bottom of the canyon. There, a short walk takes you to the banks of the Colorado River where you hop on a pontoon boat for a leisurely cruise, a perfect vantage point to marvel at the towering canyon cliffs. Fly back to the rim of the canyon to reconnect with your airplane pilot for your return flight to Phoenix.
Either schedule hotel pickup or meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport. There, receive a safety briefing and orientation to your aircraft, along with a radio headset that allows 2-way communications while in the air. Travel in either a Cessna Caravan or T207; both are high-winged airplanes perfect for taking photos and sightseeing from the air. Every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views. Your tour ends with return to your starting point after a memorable tour.
