Both my wife Pam and myself are still trying to find the words to describe this experience. Above and beyond anything we could have imagined. Our pilot, Fred, was very knowledgeable and made the flight that much more. Thanks and thanks again. This is the way to see the Grand Canyon. Also, the folks that helped at the station were the friendliest folk around. It was one of those events that we will remember for a long, long time. Thanks for the memories....

Once we checked in we actually upgraded our tour to the 45 minute version and it was outstanding in every way! Would highly recommend this company and this adventure was one of the highlights of our entire trip! It puts the size of the Grand Canyon into perspective that you just can't get from walking on the rim!
