Our first helicopter ride did not disappoint… - This was our first helicopter ride and it did not disappoint. The views were amazing! Our pilot, Tyler, was great and narrated our trip perfectly throughout the flight. Our boarding attendant, Nick, was great also. Nick took photos prior to boarding, helped us board and took photos after we boarded. We will treasure these memories. We highly recommend Scenic Helicopter Tours.
