Emily M.

Outstanding service with the flexibility to adjust the flight plan as needed. Everything went seamlessly, and the pilot took the time to provide explanations when we wanted them, ensuring we could fully enjoy the breathtaking views. Definitely worth a repeat experience!

Justin H.

For my birthday, my girlfriend surprised me with a helitour, and it exceeded all expectations. The view was stunning, and the service was exceptional. Our pilot, D, was not only knowledgeable and accommodating but also had a fantastic personality. He shared insights into the industry, enhancing our overall experience. Before takeoff, D gave us a rundown of the sites to anticipate, and we were thrilled to learn about demo flight classes for the future. The only downside was booking on a Mariners game day, limiting our proximity to some landmarks. Despite this, it didn't dampen our incredible ride!

Olivia K.

A fantastic and enjoyable experience! Ideal for couples, kids, tourists exploring main cities, and families. The helitour provides a unique perspective and is a must-try for anyone looking to have a great time with loved ones.
