The only negative was the attitude of a couple of the workers at the heliport and the fact that we had to wait outside for them to let us in when they asked us to be there at 8:30AM and didn’t let us in until 8:50AM. It was extremely cold outside and they shouldn’t have asked us to be there early and then make us wait outside. Everything else was amazing! The pilot was great and the rest of the workers were kind.

Everyone was super nice and helpful, it gave the impression that they enjoy their work. I also liked that we had a pilot who was a bit scared of heights. :) The team was nice and really courteous. It seemed as if they had fun at work. It was funny that we had a pilot who is afraid of heights. :)

Wow! What an incredible experience. The helicopter tour was fanrastic from start to finish. We were running late due to taxi driver going to wring location and the staff were so helpful in ensuring we were kept informed. We were then able to fly after slight delay. Katheleen Patricia was particularly accomodating-extremely professional and a delight.
