It was our first helicopter ride and definitely worth it. We did the Harbor Islands + Skyline and the views were spectacular. There was a last minute FAA restriction due to Red Sox game but luckily the game got done early and our pilot was kind enough to take through downtown as soon as he got to now that the restriction was taken off.

Is the one of the best experience I ever have so far in my life, since the treat for the staff until the end of the experience, everything was wonderful, I feel kind shy because we didn’t talk to much with the person who was driving, but I was speechless of the beauty of the city. I 100% recommend this experience and I will be back!!! Btw duncan is such a gentleman and a good pilot, he is amazing, he offered to take pictures and explain where we are and also really helpful!

I highly recommed!!!!The two pilots were phenomenal! There was another group who was in the lounge area and one of them was incredibly rude to one of the pilots. Our original one was very kind and we ended up switching to cause less of an issue. The one we ended up having for the excursion was very knowledgeable, funny, and made it one of the best experiences. The different locations were explained, the safety of the different devices were reviewed.

The office and helicopter were both very clean, which feels like a minor detail, but I think it’s a good indicator of the quality of the service provided.

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!!!

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!

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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!
