What we chose to do
I was browsing the internet looking for activities in Panama City and came across the Helicopter Tour. I found a great deal on TripShock.
I booked it three days in advance of our trip.
I wanted to surprise my husband and daughters with a helicopter tour as we have never been on one. I thought it would be something fun and different for us to do while on vacation.
The harbor was only a five minute drive from the condo we were renting.
The staff was great. When we walked in, I expressed that my daughters were very scared and hesitant to go. The staff assured us that the ride would be smooth and convinced them to give it a try.
We will always remember the excited feeling of being on a helicopter. From the moment I booked it, I felt a slight nervousness (I'm usually scared of heights), but the staff made us feel so welcome when we walked in that it immediately calmed my fears.
My daughters told me (afterwards) that this was the BEST thing that we did while we were on vacation. We got some great pictures that we will have forever as well.
I would definitely recommend this tour. If you have never been on a helicopter, you should try it. You will have no regrets.
