I loved it though it was only about two minutes! I got a great photo of the beach and got to sit up front. Next time, I'm going for the $40 tour! its not $20 as they add taxes and fees including a gas fee.

I needed to rent a helicopter ride to take photos for my job, but apparently there's a minimum party of two requirement. If you're by yourself, you have to pay for two seats. They didn't offer to try to pair me with anyone and didn't seem willing to help. The competition has similar rules as well so it's not just... More

We took the family for a ride in the choppers, it was the $40 ride over the beach. The choppers are small and only hold 3 people at a time, so you should make sure of that if you have a larger party. It was a nice view and the staff was friendly, it was a bit unorganized with the... More

I actually found this company on TripAdvisor by the reviews and since they had the best reviews, I LOVE flying but I have never been on a helicopter I said: Hey Why Not! I went to purchase the $20 ride and decided to do the $40 something ride instead. It was a little confusing at first, as to how I... More

We saw advertising all over Myrtle Beach about $20 helicopter rides. Well, the $20 only took you around Broadway on the Beach and back. There are about 6 different rates and trips. We opted for the $40 ride that took us to the ocean for a few minutes and then back. We were only up for 5 or 6 minutes... More

We took the Broadway Tour with Marcus. He was friendly, fun, knowledgeable, and provided a beautifully scenic tour of Myrtle Beach! He was a superb pilot; we can't speak highly enough about him, our flight, and our overall experience! Thank you. We will see you next year!

Once there we decided to spend the extra and go on the $40 North tour.i am so glad we did, our pilot gave us a little... More
