This was money well spent. I loved the whole experience. Highly recommended! I took the island tour for $150 and those 22 minutes just flew by. I had never done a helicopter ride before but it won't be my last time!

Although I have been fascinated by helicopters for years I had never been in one. It was a great experience. A bit pricey for the short amount of time but fun. The pilots were great and very friendly!

Fun trip for my two sons. The pilot waited for us (evening flight) as it was the last opportunity for German exchange student to fly over Galv before returning home to Germany. Great job guys - greatly appreciated.

Had a great time! But they made sure it was just the 11 minutes, yes that is what we paid for but it felt rushed. So you should go for the 30 minutes!!!
