We took the regular 40 min tour from the South Rim Terminal. Installations, plane and staff are OK, but the Grat Canyon being so biiiig, when the flight ends you really need MORE. We strongly recommend to take a more complete air visit. And of course, at least 2 days walking the different trails, and with time, go down to... More

Great tour. The whole journey was impressing, with enough time to visit all different locations and great scenery views by air and ground, this trip is defintely recommended and worth the price. Be sure to book the Grand Voyager tour for the best experience, this includes airplane, helicopter and boat.

We had an amazing time on our June 9 Canyon River Adventure. From our morning arrival at the airport to our late-afternoon return, we were in awe by the views, activities, and services of this great adventure. Flying over the Grand Canyon was breathtaking, and the flight crew did a great job pointing out what we were seeing. Additionally, there... More

We did the Scenic Canyon River Adventure today and it was amazing! It's a really long day (13 hours, start to finish) and not cheap, but it was completely worth it. It started with our flight over the canyon on the way to Page, AZ. Craig was our pilot and he did a great job. They have a narration track... More

My two children (aged 8 and 11) took Scenic Airlines as part of a package tour involving a smooth ride along the Colorado River (Colorado Discovery) and Antelope Canyon tour; participants were returned to Tusyan by motor coach. The plane ride was informative, smooth and impressive. Check in was easy and efficient. The package deal included a continental breakfast, and... More

If you think the view of the Grand Canyon is awesome from the rim, you have got to see it from one of these planes. AMAZING! It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. The Pilots and staff, were very friendly and professional. I was a little nervous as we had several rain storms roll through that day and... More

An absolutely wonderful experience. We were 2 couples and had the best pilot ever. A 21 year old beautiful young lady. There were 2 other couples and we all had window seats. The young pilot was amazing and the flight was worth every single penny. Can't wait to do it again next year

We did an all tour day that was a wonderful combination of things to see. The flight over the Grand Canyon was in a small plane, the views were amazing and the flight was smooth.

As the Canyon is so large, it is impossible to fathom the size when walking along the rim. A bird's eye view gives a better impression, even though it's still impossibly big. Scenic airlines is easily accessible by car and booking through their website was pretty easy as well. We did have to call them to confirm our booking which... More

We picked this airline recommended by the concierge of our hotel. It was definitely a good decision since We were only half a mile away from the airport. Many tourists arrived after us but We were lucky enough to be only four in the plane. It was magic. We saw the Colorado river, the grand canyon mountains, the Kaibab forest... More
