We had a great experience with this scenic flight over the Grand Canyon. Our pilot Andrew has attached additional information in addition to the audio guide. Unfortunately, our fellow passengers didn't have as much fun flying as we did, so you should be fit to travel with a small plane. But we highly recommend it.

Super good activity! I highly recommend it since the views are impressive and you get to know much more. This option is the most economical and you really see the same thing… I don't recommend it for someone who is afraid of planes or gets dizzy very easily, because of the wind if there are turbulence.

Worth the money even though they upcharhwd us $10/person at the terminal for fuel surcharge.. therefore the real cost is $179 for 40 minutes round-trip. It’s a two propeller plane that is a lot of fun and provides great views. The pilots were very informative and kind. The initial climb was a little turbulent so it helps to have a little bit of courage and strong stomach for that but after that it was smooth sailing. Highly recommended.
