The excellent service began when we were picked up at our hotel. Originally, our flight was cancelled due to high winds, so we rescheduled for a morning flight on another day. (FYI: Apparently, the morning is less windy.) Our flight was smooth, and the scenery was amazing. Our pilots were Rose and Bill. We took the three-hour flight over the valley, Sedona, and of course, the Grand Canyon. Everyone loved it, incl. the kids. I highly recommend Westwind!

Loved every minute of it. Flight and narration was great. This is the way to see the Grand Canyon. We were picked up and dropped off at our resort in Phoenix. The people were all very nice.

We opted for this tour as a last minute replacement for a white water trip that was cancelled. We chose the West Rim because it would be warmer than the South Rim in March. This was the best way to see the some of the Grand Canyon in one day from Phoenix! The Cessna took us up to the rim area in just over an hour and the approach to the Grand Canyon is truly spectacular. After landing we did the helicopter ride to the floor of the canyon. This was by far what we enjoyed the most. The boat ride is quite short but dipping toes in the Colorado and looking up the canyon walls makes this enjoyable. The Skywalk is the most commercial part of the West Rim and we felt photographed as if part of a wedding group but you could easily say no thanks after a few photos or opt out all together (no personal cameras allowed). The photo price is steep ($60 per photo or $80 for USB), however; I will treasure the excellent photo I purchased of my son and I. Guano Point is the last stop for a lunch that we thought was decent and the scenery is beautiful. To do the Grand Canyon justice you need more than a day but if you only have the day from Phoenix - this is the way to go. The staff of Westwind was first rate. We loved traveling in a small group. Lastly if you can go off season (before the end of April) you find great weather at the West Rim and no crowds!

Our family of four had an amazing trip from Page, AZ to Monument Valley and then a flight over the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The views were spectacular!! Brad, our pilot, was wonderful and put us at ease even during a windy landing at Page. Thank you for taking such good care of us!
