We have been in Newport on many occasions, this time on recommendation of a friend we took this ride. The weather was with us, perfect sunny afternoon in December :-) . More importantly, the aircraft was brand new, the owner/pilot had just flew it in from LA the week before, he was very friendly and competent at his job. We... More

We had taken a helicopter trip around LA a couple of years ago, so we knew how well such a trip shows a visitor what there is to see. So it was with great pleasure that we took the trip around Newport and the coast. We got to see the layout of Newport, surrounding areas, our hotel and the mansions.... More

Took a helicopter trip over the Newport mansions. Rather quick ride, but worth the effort. Got the $25 video, which is not worth it because it looks at where the copter is going, but the attractions are off to the side.

My daughter gave us a gift certificate for the mansion ride. My wife, my 80 year old mother in-law and I went up for the ride. Airport was easy to find in Middletown. We went up on time and experienced 12 minutes of pleasure. Flew over the Newport Bridge, by Fort Adams, then around Ocean Drive and around the mansions.... More

Excellent tour. Friendly staff. Very fun trip with reasonable rates... The pilot even cut his lunch short to accommodate us in a slight booking error. I went with a 10 year old and 12 year old. Very enjoyable trip for all.

Everything was amazing, the views, the pilot, we didn't feel the slightest bit scared, and we both are developing a fear of heights!. My biggest complaint was they had obviously overbooked that day and they cut our tour short. We had a gift card , the people who bought it thought it was for 30 mins. I asked the girl... More

Could you please contact us if you had a gift card for the Lighthouse tour. The lighthouse tour is approximately 25-27 minutes and covers about 45 miles. All our tours have both a mileage and time description which is clearly stated on our website. It sounds like you had a gift card for the Mansion Tour which is 10-12 minutes... More

Received a Newport helicopter and winery tour gift for my 60th birthday from XPerience Days. We have been to Newport and visited the mansions several times, but have never enjoyed such a thrilling experience seeing the gorgeous coastline and mega mansions from above. The ride was smooth as silk, the weather crystal clear, and the sights breathtaking! Our pilot, Jeff,... More

Great experience. Friendly staff and pilot. Great view of the water and mansions. First time flyers and felt very safe with pilot. We got there early and didn't have to wait. Definitely recommend this.

I have been wanting to get up here many times over the past few years. I finally got the chance to take my two boys with me. One is 4 and other is 2. They were so pumped to go in a helicopter, it was awesome. What a great way to see the island. I would definitely recommend to anyone.... More
