On the 3-hour round-trip flight from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon, your pilot will fly at an altitude perfect for sightseeing. From the air, you’ll have a clear view of the red rock canyons of Sedona, the rugged cactus-covered Tonto National Forest, and the multi-colored formations in the Painted Desert.

Upgrade to the ground tour option which includes a landing in Grand Canyon National Park where you will hop into a jeep and head right to the rim. Here you’ll stroll through the historic Grand Canyon Village and gaze down into the vastness of the Grand Canyon from one of the many overlooks that dot the rim. You’ll also enjoy lunch in the park before heading back to the Grand Canyon Airport for the flight back to Phoenix.
