Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your comprehensive Grand Canyon day trip begins with an incredibly scenic flight in a Cessna airplane to the West Rim of the canyon. Hear informative narration from your expert pilot while you soak in views of the Grand Canyon and other parts of Arizona's amazing landscape.

When you land, visit Eagle Point for a Native American cultural experience: see a village with authentic Native American homes; enjoy a short performance; and walk out on the Skywalk—a clear platform that extends over the edge of the canyon's sheer rock cliffs, providing heart-racing views of the canyon floor far below.

Have lunch (included) at Guano Point on the rim of the Grand Canyon, and do a little hiking if you wish. The views of the canyon and the Colorado River are spectacular.

Your tour includes a quick helicopter ride down to the bottom of the canyon. There, a short walk takes you to the banks of the Colorado River where you hop on a pontoon boat for a leisurely cruise, a perfect vantage point to marvel at the towering canyon cliffs. Fly back to the rim of the canyon to reconnect with your airplane pilot for your return flight to Phoenix.

Either schedule hotel pickup or meet your pilot at Deer Valley Airport. There, receive a safety briefing and orientation to your aircraft, along with a radio headset that allows 2-way communications while in the air. Travel in either a Cessna Caravan or T207; both are high-winged airplanes perfect for taking photos and sightseeing from the air. Every passenger has a window seat with unobstructed views. Your tour ends with return to your starting point after a memorable tour.

We booked this trip for 3 couples, all family. We booked through trip advisor/Westwind airlines. They were very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable. John was our agent and he answered all our questions! On the day of our trip, We were greeted by Lindsey at the office and informed to use the bathroom, get some snacks and water for our day trip, and introduced to out pilot Josh. We were informed two young ladies would join our group and they were slot of fun. Westwind air was clean, staff very friendly and really took care of us! We loaded the plane and was off on time, precisely at 7:30 am. We arrived at the west rim about 8:30. We unloaded and we’re taken by bus to the west rim entrance, gift shops and restaurant. Josh took us to the gift center, bathrooms, and then we were lead up to the west rim skywalk. We packed away all our belongings and went out on the skywalk. The only disappointment of the day was the glass skywalk... it was dirty and the gentleman taking our photos was not into our group.. we came out with 12 photos of three couples... the two other gals included with our group had a photographer who was really into these ladies... this photographer took a lot of poses and pictures of these young ladies. After this session we went down to the gift shop at the skywalk rim and were given about a half hour to shop. We then were lead up together to the dining room, where we seated at three tables and given a choice of four menu options and drinks. The food was excellent. We spent about an hour here, then back to the gift shop. We then were bussed to Eagle point where we could hike and had beautiful views of the canyon and got some great panoramic photos. We then were bussed back to the terminal where we walked to the helicopter area. We were instructed by video of what to expect on the helicopter tour, and waited about 45 minutes or so for the helicopter. We were in the helicopter headed to the canyon basin. This was exhilarating and breathtaking... upon arrival we were let off the helicopter and walked down a slope and steps to the Colorado river where we boarded a pontoon boat and was taken on a guided tour down/of the Colorado river. Theresa, our tour guide was very informative and took a lot of time with our group. We then climbed back up the stairs to wait for the helicopter and again loaded and taken on a scenic ride back up the canyon side back to the terminal. It was the highlight of the trip! We then walked back to the terminal where our pilot Josh met us and we walked back to the plane terminal and loaded up and headed back to Phoenix. We arrived back at 3:30. It was a fun filled exciting day. The airplane flight was so gentle and smooth, as was the helicopter ride! We feel this was the best way to witness the Grand Canyon. We saw and experienced more in this 8 hour day then we ever could have on our own. All costs were included for entrance, skywalk rim, lunch, bussing, helicopter and boat ride. We did tip our pilot, our helicopter operator and boat guide. This was definitely worth the cost of the trip! Every aspect of the trip was well thought out, entertaining and accommodating!

Highly recommend this day trip to the Grand Canyon. What a way to first see the Canyon - from the plane! The helicopter ride alone is worth the trip. The ride down and back on the Colorado River and the Skywalk - just icing on the cake!

Adventure That Never Ends

The trip started from PHX with a flight from Deer Valley Airport to Grand Canyon West a Airport. Westwind staff was awesome and accommodating. Airplane was ready to go when we arrived. Stephen our pilot did a very professional job as pilot and host and guide for the trip. Because there were only 4 in out group, we were fortunate to be able to fly in a smaller airplane with more options for customizing our trip on the fly. Upon arrival into West Grand Canyon airport, we took a Eurocopter to the canyon floor and and then a boat trip on the Colorado. Sundance staff and Hualapai hosts were awesome. The sights were fantastic. Return trip via helicopter the the airport and then to the Skywalk on the Hualapai reservation. Interesting engineering instruction. Fun to walk out over the canyon on a glass walkway. Then off to lunch at another location on the reservation near the canyon rim with fantastic views. Did some hiking along the rim and then returned to the airport for the flight back to PHX. What a day. The value for this trip was exceptional and having a small group with a personal host made the trip memorable. Defiantly recommend it to anyone. Tip - go on a Friday or Saturday when the crowds at the canyon are lower.
