It sounds like you are talking about a tour package out of Las Vegas. It isn't really possible to do a Grand Canyon river trip AND a jeep tour AND an airplane tour in a single day.
These tour companies do Grand Canyon lite and it's really a shame that people think they are really experiencing the Grand Canyon.
- The plane is definitly doable I might suggest a helicopter) They fly primarily out of the Grand Canyon Airport and Las Vegas.
- The jeep is also a possibility although you're not going to be seeing the Grand Canyon National Park but rather the West Canyon which is a much scaled down experience. These trips run out of Las Vegas.
- As for the river trip. I've been a licensed river guide in Grand Canyon for 23 years and the only one day trips are run by the Hualapai Tribe out of Diamond Creek. These run down river from the point where most real Grand Canyon river trips end. I hear the trips can be fun but mostly because the "guides" do some kinda hairball stuff like running up the rapids (not the safest thing). It is some beautiful country and there is some amazing history to the area (Like Seperation Canyon where members of the first JW Powell expedition left the trip and were never heard from again).
DO NOT waste your $$ on the Skywalk.
