More detailed description >

You'll marvel at the sight of historic Boulder City with Lake Mead glistening in the background.

Sit back and relax as you soar above the Mohave Desert, arid landscape that has formed rolling hills and stunning land. From your birds eye view you'll see the towering Hoover Dam in Black Canyon, completed two years ahead of schedule in 1935.

As your flight enters the West Rim of the Grand Canyon, you'll discover the Grand Wash Cliffs, the narrowest region in the canyon.

The flat top cliffs provide stunning views of red rock formations while the Colorado River snakes its way through the canyon floor. Lush vegetation lines the riverbanks of the mighty river through its calmer region along the Grand Canyon.

"This would have been a fabulous experience, but in addition to the flight itself, there was supposed to be a narrated audio tour as well. The pilot wasn't able to get the audio working for the first half of the trip, so we only had half of the narration (none at all for the Lake Mead, Mohave Dessert, Hoover Dam or the first part of the Grand Canyon). Neither of the pilots offered any kind of description or explanation for what we were flying over -- very disappointing! The narration is clearly a significant piece of the tour. That said, it would be appreciated if we would be able to receive a portion of the cost back due to the fact the tour wasn't as described."
