Imagine the thrill of flying into the bright blue sky aboard a Grand Canyon airplane tour, a mere two hours after stepping out of your Las Vegas hotel and into an awaiting shuttle. The adventure of a lifetime begins right as you start to gain altitude. Take in aerial views of the majestic Hoover Dam - even larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza - and the largest reservoir in the United States, Lake Mead. Banking wide around an ancient rock spires, your eyes will be opened to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, where strong geological evidence suggests the Colorado River began carving its way through this ancient landscape over 5 million years ago. Our Vistaliner aircraft were specifically designed and constructed with sightseeing in mind, so sit back and enjoy the view as you gaze over Guano Point, Eagle Point, and the Colorado River below before returning to the air terminal.
