Flight was a little bumping but the tour took us some great view points. It was more expensive than bus tour but I think it is worth.

I have been to the Canyon several times over the past 30 years. This tour made the experience of the area come alive. Fabulous guides, well organized and I can honestly say it was 10X better than I had envisioned. Linda

Hi we are planning to visit Oct 24th. A couple of questions: Can we park at the airport? Is it possible to be dropped off at the grand canyon village at the end of the trip to have the chance of seeing the sunset? If yes, would the airport car park still be open in the evening?
