The tour was very special. The driver arrived and was very upbeat. We checked in and met the pilot and started the Viatour over Sedona and the Grand Canyon. It was a good flight and absolutely breathtaking BUT my wife's ear phones did not work and could not hear any of the
history ~ very disappointed.
