The process, the safety, and the flight were great. There were several main things that made the experience disappointing. The pilot was unable to speak because of air traffic so there was almost no explanation of anything, the views were amazing but having no guide talking made it less enjoyable. Also, One side of the cabin fits three people so the person squished in the middle doesn’t have as good of a view or experience as those sitting by a window. And there is a panel separating windows that blocks the view. There was no introduction or talking with the pilot at all, just felt that was lacking in the whole experience.

I am very afraid of heights and thought it would be scary. But our pilot Ed made our flight very soft, insanely beautiful flight. Now I want to come back again😅 Thank you guys!

The heliport was easy to find and modern. Everything was well organized and extremely safe. Every precaution was taken to ensure our safety - helicopter was clean and modern. Staff was very professional on every level. Great experience - well worth the money. The views are breathtaking. Simply amazing. We did it to celebrate a birthday. Made it unforgettable.
