Spend the day marveling at the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon's South Rim. Your tour transports you via airplane to Grand Canyon National Park where you can savor the views from Mather Point and visit the photography studio at the Bright Angel Lodge.
What to Expect
This tour is the classic air/ground tour to the Grand Canyon National Park. Passengers fly aboard a state-of-the-art German-built Dornier 228, 19 passenger aircraft affording unobstructed views of the American Southwest and a narration in various languages. You will enjoy flightseeing over famous Lake Mead, the vast desert of the South West and the Hualapai Indian Nation comprising the Canyon's West Rim. The flight to the canyon is approximately 45 minutes.
Upon arrival at the Grand Canyon South Rim airport, board a luxury motor coach for your approximately 2.5 hour excursion with stops at the Park's two most dramatic, panoramic overlooks:
One of the viewpoints you'll encounter as you enter the Grand Canyon National Park area is Mather Point, named for the National Park Service's first Director, Stephen Mather. This unobstructed, awe-inspiring point on the South Rim offers that "perfect view" of the Grand Canyon featured in countless books and movies. Also at Mather Point is the Canyon View Information Plaza, housing the Canyon View Visitors Center, a large bookstore, and restrooms.
Another destination is Bright Angel-the widest, deepest and most colorful view point of the Grand Canyon. Here you'll see the circa 1935 Bright Angel Lodge. It has a gift shop, lounge, and history room. In the summer, visit its old-fashioned ice cream fountain! Also at Bright Angel Point are: Lookout Studio, a gift shop and lookout point built on the rim's edge near the Bright Angel Lodge; and, Kolb Studio, a photography studio built in 1904 and run by Emery and Ellsworth Kolb (the Kolb brothers produced canyon subject stills and were first to film a river-running trip down the Colorado). An on-the-go meal is included allowing you to eat on the plane or on the canyon rim.
