    We flew doors off and it was really cool, a little terrifying when the helicopter turned and you're looking straight down but still awesome. Highly advise wearing a jacket for doors off.

Fantastic! These folks have the process down like a finely tuned watch. Great organization, safety’s, and informative. Not to mention the excitement of seeing so many beautiful sights from the air. We did it on our first day and it really helped us plan our activities too. Thank you ladies!

Open door helicopter was awesome. Felt extremely safe and secure. We were super packed in there with 4 in the back and felt like I couldn’t see much out other side because people had phones in the way the whole time. so if you want to be comfortable maybe splurge on the private ride.
