The plane ride was very nice I sat in the front seat and that was not the best place to sit for taking pictures but it was still a good flight! I came during the Covid outbreak And the state park was closed so that that was part of my reason for coming here but mainly for the plane ride thanks have a nice day

Well worth the price, only experience left to beat this would be a trip to the international space station. Pilot was our tour guide, he was great. Took our grandkids, two of the. Were scared having never been on a plane before, and they loved it.

Excellent set up but the in-flight info didn't say much that was relevant to the flight

Very welcoming upon arrival and a couple of nice guys to pilot the aircraft. The in-flight info was not relevant to this specific flight and gave general info about the grand canyon. I would have liked to know about which parts exactly of the canyon we were flying over. The flight was very bumpy indeed and a couple of people threw up when we got back to the terminal. Great once in a lifetime experience though.
