    Really great your, worth it. Had to take a little different route than expected due to it being so cloudy, but it was still great.
    Jeanette_H, June 2023
    The views were amazing! Couldn’t see it any other way. The pilot was great also. Point out some great hiking spots if you are into that. Saw quite a few different lakes, didn’t realize there were so many.

    Staff and pilot were extremely accomodating. Good narration. Beautiful views. Good photo ops. No waterfalls - dry conditions. But with all of the other scenry it really didn't matter. Smooth ride.
    Breath taking

    I took my boyfriend on this helicopter ride for our anniversary and both of us absolutely loved it! Levi was so much fun to talk to and he provided a bunch of information on what we were seeing but also the process of being a helicopter pilot since my boyfriend was interested in being one. So awesome! Would highly recommend.
    Great Helicopter Ride!

    Great Helicopter ride- the pilot was very good and the ride scenery was phenomenal. We were able to see so much more from the air than just driving around. It gave us a lot of perspective.
    No waterfalls but great ride
    WILLIAM_S, Oct 2022
    There were no waterfalls, this should clearly stated that during the summer/winter there may not be waterfalls. It’s the reason I went. The tour guide was great, stunning views and awesome lakes
    Amazing experience!...

    They Cancelled our trip last minute
    Jennifer_S, Sept 2022
    This was a bit of a disappointment as our much anticipated 30min Helicopter 🚁 Tour was cancelled due to mechanical repairs…we totally understood that was a necessary adjustment however they didn’t offer to place us on a different tour that day (I believe there were 3 diff tours offered by this company) and they were super casual about the cancellation…wish we could have been placed on any other helicopter tour.
