Perfect experience! We had no aviation background and took an intro flight today. This is one of the most memorable experiences we've had. The weather is quite nice and our tutor Duncan is friendly and helpful. The chopper, a Robinson R88, is in great condition and the flight is smooth, steady, and comfortable!
My girlfriend and I, we’re celebrating her birthday and this is our first time we experiencing the helicopter tour with Blue Hill Helicopter and everything is amazing!!!We’re very lucky to have Duncan as our pilot, him and his co-pilot are amazing! Duncan is very professional and very kind!He had a great time here!!!
Thank you from your DOORS OFF IN DECEMBER crew!!! Our Christmas surprise trip was AMAZING!!! Our family can’t thank Erik and Duncan enough for making us comfortable, laughing, and keeping us safe!!! Both Erik and Duncan were knowledgeable and friendly, and professional! They made us feel right at home!!!Talk about a wild day!!! Hanging out of a helicopter, enjoying the views, and watching our little guy sit shotgun!!!Would recommend using them a million times over!!!
Once in a lifetime experience! How my now husband proposed. The staff was very professional, and the proposal gift box is something we will treasure for forever. However, the misunderstanding arose when we signed a waiver for a photographer to take pictures under the impression we would receive more than one photo from the experience. But rather the many photos were for the purpose of media and promo. Overall, I highly recommend it.
I had a proposal flight on Thanksgiving last week, which was awesome! Our pilot, Erik, is very responsible and friendly! He was patient with many emails from me about the flower delivery and other questions. The flight trip was impressive and at the end, they also prepared a surprising gift for my fiancee, which she love very much! It is a bit pity that the moment was not recorded, due to the malfunctional GoPro, but the company refunded the entire GoPro fee later. Overall, it is an unforgettable experience! Highly recommended!
Prior to the flight my anxiety was out of the roof. However, when I arrived Eric greeted my partner and I and made things feel more calming. He answered any questions about the ride and gave constant reassurance. Flo was our pilot and he was phenomenal! He made the entire ride enjoyable. I would recommend 1000x!!!
Was gifted a helicopter Boston tour as a birthday gift and it was a great experience! As a first time helicopter passenger the team was professional and made everything so seemless. Would highly recommend this if you are looking for a cool experience!
We just had the ride of our life with Blue hill helicopters. What a night on our anniversary. Very nice and pleasant pilot and very informative. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a fun romantic tour of the city and islands.Rick
Just had the flight of my life! As a life long Bostonian I viewed Boston and area with a Birds Eye view like never before. Erik was an incredible pilot: Professional, competent, cool, calm and collected. He also was knowledgeable in the landmarks and gave me a basic understanding of how to fly a helicopter. Highly recommend and Erik gets a five star recommendation! JUST DO IT!
I had a great experience, this was our first helicopter ride. I got to appreciate how beautiful the foliage is from up in the air and to see how beautiful is Boston. On our wayback we passed by the Cementary my mom is buried. Beautiful experience. Thank you Juan Marco.
Such an amazing experience from start to finish! My 10 year old daughter and I first did the Boston tour this past July. We enjoyed it so much that we went back at the end of the week and did the Harbor and Island tour. The Harbor and Island tour is the best value because you get a little extra time. Both tours were great! The staff is very professional and personable. They take safety seriously. The views are breathtaking. The memories are forever!!
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.
I booked a helicopter driving lesson as a birthday gift for my husband. This was an experience of lifetime. Very easy booking steps and cooperative staff. A special thanks and appreciation for Mr Georg Stopp. A very humble person who took us through the flying experience.Thank you guys for this!!Kavya Parghee
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.
Such an amazing experience! Our trip got rescheduled twice because of snow but everyone was so nice, accommodating and quick to respond to all communications. Alex our pilot was awesome and the ride was so smooth. Definitely something we will always remember!
My Partner and I truly enjoyed our experience. The ride was very smooth and enjoyable for our first time. The check in and Pilot were very kind. The ride was a great experience that I would recommend to everyone who would like to try as first time riders!
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.
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!
This is an amazing trip. You will enjoy a safe smooth ride all over Boston and see the city in a way that will really excite you. The whole experience is exceptional, take a tour of Boston's beaches as well.Alex is an awesome pilot, safe and efficient. They have a comfy lounge to relax in.
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!
Such an awesome experience. My son loved it and my wife was literally on top of the moon as it was our wedding anniversary and we took the date up in the skies over Boston. Love it love it love it. Braveen was so kind and Rob our pilot gave us great tour.. definitely add this to your bucket list.
Awesome experience! Great tour pilots - Alex and Robin. Had fun! Don't be deceived about the size of the helicopters!! Magnificent views of Boston!
