An amazing trip, the best way to see the surrounding landscape of the canyon, would definitely recommend. Very professional, friendly, well run and good value for money. The tour guide was very considerate and knowledgeable and the pilots were brilliant.

Thank you for your inquiry! The fee right now is $100-$200, depending on the round trip tour. This is a flat fee, it is not charged each way unless you are taking one-way passage.
