What people are saying about Tusayan

On a adoré cette activité, beau survol dans un petit avion de 2x5 places avec hublot pour chacun, casque avec audio guide en français (son pas top mais ça passe !), 40 minutes de vol en tout, à 5 minutes du grand canyon donc on a eu le temps de voir le sud et le nord ! Pilote très sympa (petite photo avec lui à l’atterrissage) qui commente également le vol! Tout s’est très bien passé, avec quelques petites turbulences normales et un décollage et atterrissage parfait Vaut son prix ! Je recommande fortement !

We had a wonderful flight with 4 fellow passengers over the Grand Canyon. It lasted 40 minutes and it was a very special experience to see the Grand Canyon from a different perspective. Our flight captain Jack was great.

We were so pleased with our decision to fly with Grand Canyon Airlines : it was easy to book , easy to find , very friendly and hospitable , great flight & commentary , we would recommend it to everyone !

Super sightseeing flight over the Grand Canyon with Audi Guide also in German.

Definitely the best to explore the grand canyon! Our pilotes were so nice!
