    Wow! Is what comes to mind when thinking about the experience we had with Grand Canyon Landmarks Tour by Airplane. Despite a very windy day, our pilot decided it was safe enough to take us up and informed us that our flight would be rocky, but still safe. Safe was all I needed

    This was an excellent experience from start to finish. Staff were welcoming and organized. Flight took off right on time. Views were amazing. An excellent experience for the price. Recommend requesting a window seat - worth the additional nominal fee.
