not impressed because we were in one helicopter 6 people,we didn't have any space even to brief.You cant even make picture when there are so many people inside.And you pay 400 usd for that.When we finished the tour, we had to wait 10 minutes inside the helicopter,unitl new group was doing pictures infront of the helicopter.We couldn't brief inside,but the staff didn't open the doors to go out for more than 10 minutes.Super ridicules.

We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your experience flying with us. We fly the largest helicopters in the industry in the northeast for our tour flights, which have 6 seats. Private tours are available for those who do not want to share with other customers for additional fees. Our ground crew take a few moments before each flight to take pictures of each group. We apologize if during your flight this process took longer than usual. We believe it is important to allow every passenger to be able to have the choice to purchase their picture after the flight as for many this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
