On a adoré cette activité, beau survol dans un petit avion de 2x5 places avec hublot pour chacun, casque avec audio guide en français (son pas top mais ça passe !), 40 minutes de vol en tout, à 5 minutes du grand canyon donc on a eu le temps de voir le sud et le nord ! Pilote très sympa (petite photo avec lui à l’atterrissage) qui commente également le vol! Tout s’est très bien passé, avec quelques petites turbulences normales et un décollage et atterrissage parfait Vaut son prix ! Je recommande fortement !

Great experience from start to finish. Captain Jack was marvelous and the girl at the front desk that bumped me up to an earlier flight was great. The timing worked better than expected. Thanks to all! Excellent experience and well worth taking. It was the chance of a lifetime!9

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.
