70 minute extended tour
Rakesh_P
, Apr 2021
We took the 70 minute tour of the Grand Canyon. The narration from the pilot was not audible since there was a tremendous amount of static in all of our head sets. Because of this, I was not sure what we saw when it came to knowing about the significant uniqueness of what we saw in the canyon. The views were great, however, it would have helped understand what we were looking at if we could hear the pilot clearly. It seems like a good part of the 70 minute tour was getting to and from the Grand Canyon. Not sure if I would recommend the tour to someone unless they took into account the actual viewing time for such a tour. As far as the operators of the company and aircraft, they we all pleasant and professional. The hotel pickup and drop off was convenient.
