We did a 20 minute flight the whole crew there are excellent the pilot is very knowledgeable and it is pretty obvious he loves his job My lil Miss is from Thailand this was her first helicopter ride , our pilot wasn’t sure she liked the flight,but after the flight both her and son were like I will do that again And the reason she will do it again is because of the pilot’s professionalism Thanks again absolutely fantastic and worth the money Glen and Auy and Fiat

Amazing experience and beautiful scenery. Our pilot was very knowledgeable and guided us through the mountains perfectly. We even got to see some wild life way up on the mountains. Great people at the front desk and ground crew. Definitely worth it and we would do it again.

Awesome tour!
