Imagine being able to soar over the magnificence of Grand Canyon National Park while you're luxuriating in utter comfort. You can have an experience just like that when you take a plane tour that departs from Las Vegas and Grand Canyon South. Plane rides over the Grand Canyon are a unique way to see the sights, and they are perfect if you have a tight schedule.

It only takes 20 minutes to fly from Vegas to the canyon's West Rim, so if you take an aerial-only tour, you'll be back to your hotel within three hours. You could take an amazing tour and be back to the excitement on the Strip in the same amount of time you would spend watching a ball game on TV!

Flying to the South Rim takes a little longer; the flight from Vegas to the Grand Canyon National Airport there takes about 45 minutes. This flight offers some petty awesome sightseeing as it follows the Colorado River to your destination. If you can, get a seat on the left side of the plane and you will have access to the best views.

Some of the notable points you will see include the Grand Canyon Skywalk or Glass Bridge, Grand Cliffs Wash, and Eagle Point. Northern Arizona's South Rim features Zuni Point and the Colorado Confluence, among other sights. You will also head to the North Rim and it is just as beautiful. The spectacular scenery is enough to make even the most experienced traveler's heart start racing! Bring your camera because you will want to capture the amazing views as you experience them so you can share them with friends back home.

The Grand Canyon is a very popular tourist destination, and many people return more than once. You may love the region so much that the staff at popular South Rim hotels such as the Bright Angel Lodge and El Tovar, will come to know you by name.

I suggest you book your Grand Canyon airplane tour in advance, before you arrive in the area. Many of the tour operators have 800 numbers you can call for reservation information. Departure airfields are in Grand Canyon West, Boulder City, Las Vegas, and Grand Canyon National Park. If you want to take a South Rim tour from Vegas, you need to make your own travel arrangements, but West Rim tours are often sold in packages that includes shuttle transportation from your hotel.

There is so much competition among Las Vegas Grand Canyon plane tours that those flights are the cheapest. Kids that are under ten years old usually fly cheaper than adults. If you want to get the most for your money, take time to shop around and compare prices. Chances are, you will find the lowest prices online because that is where tour companies post their promotions and online discounts. It is best to avoid buying your tickets at a kiosk on the Las Vegas Strip because you won't know much about the tour and the price will probably be a lot higher than if you book your flight directly online.

The aircraft used in these tours of the Grand Canyon are state of the art, with climate-controlled cabins, plenty of room, and seats for seventeen people. The seats are comfy too, and there's enough legroom even for tall people. In addition, the airplanes were designed specifically for sightseeing tours so they have large windows that offer panoramic views of the wonders passing below you. Even the wings are elevated to ensure everyone has clear views of all the natural wonders. Everything about these canyon air tours has been arranged to give you the most wonderful and memorable experience possible of your trip to one of the most spectacular natural wonders on earth.
