The entire staff made this experience so amazing from making our flight Reservation, to flying over the heart of Florida with detailed instructions and details about the area and what to watch out for, was just amazing. Very friendly, compassionate, kind, family oriented staff was want sold us on flying with Emerald. We will always fly with them every time.

We were very satisfied with the van chauffeur and the helicopter pilot, but we were not satisfied with our election of The Heart of Florida Experience because we were expecting to see the beach and the city from up high, but instead we saw salt marshes and wetlands. The representative that sold us the tour showed us the details of the tour, but we were way too excited that we did not take the time to read the details. We assumed that we would be flying over the beach and city since the Emerald Executive Helicopters booth were we purchased our tour is located in Pier Park which is in Panama City Beach. It would help tremendously if the representative that sells the tour brings to the attention of the purchaser that The Heart of Florida Experience is not a tour of the beaches nor city. That way in case someone else is way too excited to read the details, then they will know what they are in for before selecting The Heart of Florida Experience tour.
