“What a wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

I have always wanted to ride in a helicopter! Last week, to my surprise, this dream came true! Everyone was very nice. The pilot was very informative and.......what a view! I could have stayed in the air forever. Will b returning soon for an even longer tour!

“Post card Perfect”
Reviewed January 1, 2012

I have taken helicopter tours in Alaska, Hawaii, & the Grand Canyon & can say that this tour with smokey mountain helicopter was by far the most beautiful flight I have ever taken!
The flight was a 30 min. Tour that the lady inside the office recommended as a "see it all!" I had asked for a good ride that had a little bit of the area including the beautiful mountains.
The wait was about 15 min. Since it was a busy day it seemed but the staff was great & the kids loved watching the helicopter land & take off while we waited!
The person that loaded us asked if our 11 year old son would like to ride up front with the pilot & be a "co pilot"
Our son did get to be the "co pilot" and has not stopped talking about his flight all the way back home!
Thank you smokey mountain helicopters for finishing our Christmas vacation with a great memory! We will be back!

“Helicopters Rule”
Reviewed July 25, 2011

1st time in a helicopter and it was so fun. You can see everything from the helicopters. The views are fantastic. The ride was smooth, the pilot very professional, the staff very friendly and helpful. This was the last day of our vacation and what a way to finish it up. A perfect flight to finish a perfect vaction.

“The worst experience of my life!”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Myself and seven members of my family went on a trip from Akron Ohio to the Pigeon Forge for a Family Reunion. While driving to our cabin in the mountains, we noticed a sign for helicopter rides for ten dollars. We all thought it was a great deal but you get what you pay for. June 28, 2011 we all loaded up and went to Smoky mountain Helicopters. We were all excited about the helicopter ride until we talked to a woman with red hair named Nina. She had a nasty attitude from the time we walked in, she didn't seem the least bit interested in answering the questions we had about the different rides that were available. She told us that she wouldn't be able to ride all "Big Ones". The insults just continued, we all were so disgusted with Smoking Mountain Helicopters that we just left and went elsewhere. Our entire group was African American. We went to Seveir County Choppers and had one of the best experiences anyone could ask for. They were professional, friendly and very down to earth. If you want to take a helicopter ride while visiting the Smokies, I would highly recommend Seveir County Choppers.
