The Grand Canyon, Canyonlands & Nat'l Parks by Air

The Grand Canyon, Canyonlands & Nat'l Parks by Air

One of the most scenic tours in our program, Grand Canyon and National Parks allows spectacular views of many different geographic formations, only seen in the United States.

Rocky Mountain National Park is where you will discover the true meaning of "panoramic" as you experience incredible views. The formations with Bryce Canyon National Park, called Hoodoos, are the creation of wind and water erosion over eons of time. Zion National Park, known for its red and white sandstone cliffs, is one of the most awe-inspiring national parks in the world. Behold amazing views of the Grand Canyon as we drive along the South Rim. Relax as we cruise along lovely Lake Powell. These are just a few of the included sights of nature's beauty on this tour which encompasses multiple canyons and National Parks.

Transportation Security Administration's Guidelines for Checking Luggage:

Customers are urged to leave their checked luggage unlocked, which will avoid the potential need for Transportation Security Administration (TSA) personnel to forcibly open bags that require further inspection.  Plastic zip ties or cable ties may be used if desired.

 

Customers are asked to:

  • NOT pack food or beverages in checked bags

  • Pack footwear on top of other contents

  • Put personal belongings in clear plastic bags to reduce chances of TSA Screeners having to handle them

  • Spread out - NOT stack - books

  • Leave gifts unwrapped should screening require them to be opened

  • Put scissors, pocket knives and other sharp items in checked luggage

  • Put film in carry-on bag because screening equipment will damage undeveloped film

  • Avoid over-packing your bag so that the screener will be able to easily reseal your bag if it is opened for inspection
