Thank you for taking time to post a review, we're happy to hear that our staff provided excellent service! We sincerely apologize that the views from your aircraft did not meet your expectations. The air space in and around the desert and the Grand Canyon are strictly managed by the national park service as well as the FAA, so we fly the same route as other tour operators. We cannot deviate from the designated return path. We do appreciate your business and hope you enjoyed the rest of your visit to the Grand Canyon. Respectfully, GCSA Management

Our flight over the Grand Canyon was an amazing experience. The plane was very comfortable (more so than a helicopter!) - everyone had a window seat so views were spectacular. Value for money was also very good in comparison with other trip options. We would recommend this trip

As a very experienced pilot, I appreciated the condition of the aircraft and it's safety record. It is a Cessna Caravan, a very stable and safe aircraft. The tour was excellent, first over Hoover Dam and then to the west rim. A good value as we purchased discount tickets on

Was able to purchase a discounted ticket for 2 in advance. Chose to be picked up at local motel even though we live nearby, mostly because the discounted price didn't clearly indicate where the departure point was. Pick up was on time about 20-30 minute ride to airport in
