Exemplary customer service! My brother has multiple developmental, physical and mental health disabilities. The pilot and his associate were outstanding in regard to treating John with the utmost respect. They were kind and accommodating without being condescending. We both enjoyed our flight/tour of Boston and the harbor islands. Many thanks! We will return.

We had the most incredible experience with our helicopter tour. Cannot recommend it enough. We did the sunset tour over Boston and it did not disappoint. We chose to have the doors off which made our experience that much cooler. The pilots are so friendly and fun, knowledgeable and trustworthy. Highly recommend this company and the sunset tour.

Wow! This is my second time going up in the Helicopter. It's a surreal experience that doesn't compare to any other in Boston. One minute you are in a waiting room about and the next you are floating above Boston. I took a ride down towards the Cape and it was magical. The pilots are both highly qualified and also ensure anything you'd like to see is part of the journey. Loved it!

We booked our sunset trip in advance and the booking process was easy. When we arrived the office was easy to find and the staff were really friendly and went through what we would be doing. We were offered refreshments if we wanted them.When our pilot arrived he was super friendly and took us on the cart to the helicopter. He then went through the safety tips and after boarding the helicopter went through the trip with us.Once we were in the air he gave us a good commentary of the sites and landmarks below.The staff were really friendly and the trip was brilliant and we enjoyed every minute of it and would definitely recommend it if you are in Boston.Would definitely do it again.

It was a really great experience. Our pilot was very understanding and successful. It felt so good to sit in a warm and clean area after the flight . I think 30 minutes is enough time, I didn't need more. Thanks again for everything 🫶🏻

Absolutely stellar group of pilots there. George and Hans both were very kind. Had a great flight over Boston! Unfortunately clouds blocked the whole sky but that didnt stop us from seeing the city lights!

This experience was awesome! It was me and my husband. We loved every minute and the pilot was amazing! He was knowledgeable of the area and a great pilot. Smooth flying and great views. It was easy to get into the airport and so much fun seeing the city and islands in a new view! We definitely want to go back for more of the other types of tours. We said it would be fun to fly over rush hour traffic!! (If you know Boston !) There are even lessons to learn how to fly!!! Thanks again for a great day and fun trip. Can’t wait to go Again!

We had an amazing time flying with George on Monday evening! They were very accommodating and helped us reschedule 2 times due to weather. The process is easy, fun and safe. This was my first time riding in a helicopter and I cannot wait to do it again! The view is unbelievable. You cannot live in Boston and not see it from that perspective. Highly recommend this experience to everyone. The Sunset Tour was phenomenal. If you are nervous about the motions in the air, I suggest taking a Dramamine an hour before – that is what I did. I had an awesome time and did not feel sick. Thank you so much! We can't wait to come back.

My son and I took the Boston and Harbor Islands tour this morning and it did not disappoint. It lived up to all the 5 Star reviews! Online booking was easy; our pilot, Hans, was great; and the views spectacular. I hope to book another one of their tours soon. As a lifelong Boston resident, I highly recommend 👍

We had an amazing experience. I was apprehensive prior to going but the pilot assuaged all my fears. He was confident and very reassuring. He was polite and pleasant too. My husband and I had a wonderful time and plan to do it again.

Just did this with my wife for our anniversary. We absolutely loved it.Would totally recommend to anyone interested in this!Our pilot, Robin, was fantastic and provided us a very safe and fun flight!
Had my introductory helicopter lesson today. Hans was my instructor, he was absolutely amazing! He was very informative, highly professional, a great teacher, and an overall great guy. If you have any interest in learning, I would highly recommend going here. 10 out of 10 would do again

I usually never write reviews but our experience was great! Finding the location was super easy, parking right out front and the check-in was quick. Just walked in and said our name. Our appointment was for 1pm but we ended up getting taken out at 12pm which was awesome. We did the waivers online so there was no hassle. The guy at the front desk (didn’t catch his name) was super nice! Asked if it was our first time and made us feel welcomed. Even talked about skydiving!! The ride on the kart was smooth and we learned about the private charter planes. Our pilot (Alex I think) was super straight to the point when it came to the safety portion! He was super knowledgeable and checked in every few times to tell us what path he was going to take. The ride was super smooth too! I got some killer photos. Would definitely do again with more family members!

They offered me half refund or a rescheduled when I took the tour at a cloudy day for Sunset, I didn’t ask for it but they offer it. Glad that I choose to give another chance, I wish I can post some videos if I can, no words can describe the experience and how beautiful the view is. pilot drive me to the helicopter and set up whatever needed. I think I will comeback with my mother next time, she should share this moment with me. Amazing incredible memory

Flew with Hans for a lesson/tour. One of the best experiences I’ve ever had.He was calm, level headed and amazing to fly with. I was pretty nervous going into the experience (was a birthday surprise from my wife, I didn’t know I was doing this until we got there. He helped calm me down and gave perfect advice. By the end I wished it was longer and felt a lot more confident.I didn’t think I’d want to try this again but I am really excited to.Thank you so much Hans!
