What people are saying about Lake Mead National Recreation Area

Dette var en flott opplevelse. Utrolig å se Grand Canyon fra lufta. Skikkelig mektig syn var det. Selv om det blåste litt så var det helt klart verdt det. Litt turbulens men ikke værre enn at det gikk helt fint.

Sehr zu empfehlen! Audio guide in mehreren Sprachen, auch in Deutsch verfügbar. Hotelabholung und Organisation vom Flug war super. Man konnte von jedem Platz alles sehen, auch den Hoover Damm.

Jared was a great pilot and told us many interesting facts about the Gran Canyon. The flight was amazing and gave us a special overview over the whole area.

Sensitive heart in transport abstain. Several were sick in the flight! On the other hand, the view is exceptional!!! wow!!!

The experience was amazing and the pilot (Alex) was super cool and friendly
