    1. Hi Terri,
      Since you posted your question on the Scenic Canyon River Adventure page, I assume that that is the tour you are inquiring about. I apologize for the lack of a booking link. For the time being, please visit the official website of the tour company, to check for availability and pricing.
      Good luck and safe travels,

    1. Hi Marlon,
      Since you posted your comment on the Scenic Canyon River Adventure page, I assume you are inquiring about the closest airport to where this particular tour departs from. If that is the case, the closest airport is Flagstaff, AZ (FLG). Flagstaff/Pulliam Airport (FLG) is approximately 90 minutes from Grand Canyon National Park Airport, but most visitors to the area do not opt to fly into there. The most popular airport and staging cities used by visitors to the American Southwest — meaning Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, and Colorado — are Las Vegas, NV (LAS) and Phoenix, AZ (PHX). Either airport is located approximately 4.5-5 hours from Grand Canyon South Rim.
      Hope that helps! If you have further questions, feel free to contact me directly at [email protected]
      Good luck and safe travels,
