This scenery-packed tour provides an excellent overview of the Grand Canyon in a short amount of time.
Set off from Grand Canyon National Park Airport on your morning or afternoon airplane tour of Grand Canyon landmarks. As you ride aboard a comfortable Vistaliner plane with panoramic windows, listen to narration about the geologic forces that helped create the dramatic canyon and surrounding terrain and the various peoples who have lived there. Keep your camera ready as you fly over Zuni Point — one of the few lookouts on the South Rim without a road or trail — and marvel at the crimson canyon and plateau covered with cacti. Continue through the Zuni Corridor and see the Confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers. Glimpse at the gorgeous colors of the Painted Desert in the distance. See the remote North Rim, including its highest viewpoint, Imperial Point. Admire the Kaibab Plateau and dense greenery of the Kaibab National Forest before returning to Grand Canyon National Park Airport at the conclusion of your 40-minute aerial tour. Add another level of adventure on board a Hummer specifically designed for sightseeing. This Hummer features include an open-air cab with stadium-like seating for optimal viewing. Travel to some of the most popular viewpoints within the Grand Canyon accompanied by a knowledgeable driver-guide. Learn interesting facts and the history of the canyon while traveling to each viewpoint. Take in and capture the beauty of the canyon from viewpoints that may include Duck on a Rock, Yavapai Point, and Moran Point. After experiencing this natural wonder from above and by ground, return to the Hummer depot with memories and photos to last a lifetime!
