The driver picks you up and drops you off at your hotel. He even called to say he was 5 minutes out for pick up. The city tour was very informative in a comfortable setting. The best thing was the driver Jared. He was so informative and interesting.

First time on a helicopter, and had a blast. Pilot was very professional, and made us feel comfortable the entire time

Chris was a great driver…personable and very knowledgeable. I would have liked more time at the park!

Good overall tour of city - liked that it was a smaller tour - bus sat 16
