Many people talk about seeing the Seven Wonders of the World as if they are hard to reach, but the Grand Canyon is one of the most stunning Seven Wonders, and it is easy to visit in Arizona. This is one of the must-see destinations for people visiting and living in the United States. People travel to the Grand Canyon from all over the world just to see its majestic beauty. In most cases, the easiest way to enjoy the Grand Canyon is to experience it from the sky through Grand Canyon plane tours.
There are multiple Grand Canyon airplane rides departing from Las Vegas on a daily basis. There are multiple companies now flying tourists out to the West Rim, returning them to Las Vegas at the end of the flight. These sightseeing flights are the perfect day trip for Las Vegas visitors who want a break from the city’s neon lights and non-stop action.
Plane tours to the Canyon will go to different areas, but many visitors enjoy the West Rim trip that stops off at Hoover Dam. The entire trip is about eight hours long. The tour begins with a 50-minute flight to the Hualapai Indian Reservation, followed by spectacular sightseeing at Eagle Point and Guano Point.
South Rim Grand Canyon plane tours are also available. Many Grand Canyon visitors will find hotels and restaurants in Tusayan, Arizona, which is where these South Rim trips depart from. Knowledgeable local guides share information about the region to make these tours more interesting, and they go out of their way to make the experience more enjoyable.
If you are a bargain shopper or just like to get the most for your money, you cannot beat the value of an air tour over the Canyon. Ground tours limit what you can see at one time, but from the air you can take in the entire Canyon in one breathtaking trip. Flying is also much quicker, which gives you more time to enjoy the sights.
Whether you are visiting the Canyon for the first time or the fiftieth time, the professionals organizing your tour will ensure you are well taken care of and properly entertained. You won’t struggle to see the amazing views with oversized plane windows, and you will want to bring your camera and take some of those views back home with you. Many of these tours are narrated, providing plenty of interesting information about the sights passing beneath the wings.
A traditional Native American-style lunch at an area reservation is typically included in a Grand Canyon flight. The Grand Canyon is definitely the focus of the experience, but you’ll also be able to learn about Native American culture and how the local inhabitants view this geological wonder.
With the wide selection of plane tours offered, most visitors can find something to meet their needs. There are some special tourist needs that may be accommodated in a special manner if you ask. Just contact one of them to set up your plans.
The great thing about a tour out of Vegas is that you are picked up and returned to the same area. It is difficult to top Las Vegas due to the glamorous lights, the entertaining shows, and the never-ending resort-hotels and buffets. And, if you want to fly back to the Grand Canyon the next day, you’ll be able to book another canyon flight.
