It was really fun seeing familiar sites from a totally different perspective. The pilot was friendly and informative. He pointed out dolphins and a ship wreck. He circled our condo and our motorhome a couple of times. We were up for about a half hour and the experience was definitely worth the cost.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Good entertainment. Due to high winds the pilot had to fly higher than usual. Pilot had good technical and people skills. Would recommend. Booking was easy and the person assisting the pilot was very pleasant.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Pilot didn't say a word to me or my son during the whole trip . My son was terrified during the tour . The Pilot didn't do anything to make him feel comfortable. I don't know if all helicopters don't have doors , but my son said he was scared that he was going to fall out of the helicopter :(Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
