My wife and I decided to take this up as "start the honey moon with a bang" idea, and these guys did not miss the mark. Hands down one of the best experiences I've had touring in a helicopter. Our pilot, Kyle, was such a cool dude and full of so much humble knowledge about landscape and the history of Canada. And Danielle, our guide for the bubbles tour was the coolest and nicest woman, it was truly a pleasure to meet her and she took such good care of us while out on the lake. Needless to say, we made memories for a life time with those guys. Oh...and the food they provide, the cook, oh my God. It was fantastic. She even accomadated my wife's food allergies to make sure she could have the same food. It truly was an experience. If you guys read this, good shit.

Added interest to our trip and pointed out items of interest that we may have missed. Unfortunately the day we drove was of poor visibility so we couldn't see alot of the mountains and other items of interest however it was still good to listen and learn about the area and then answer the quiz questions that was put to us. Added a bit more fun to the trip as well as past the time of travelling. I think that it is a great idea and would definitely look for other guides like these when travelling.

Amazing food tour. Food was delicious and perfectly portioned. Hilary the tour guide was knowledgeable and great to talk to

Great trip, highly recommend. Saw some beautiful picturesque sights and got some amazing photos. Scenery is incredible.

The staff is amazing and the experience was amazing. Helicopter and snowshoe tour was the highlight of our trip.
