    They are amazing with children. I took my four year old daughter and they were so kind to her. She had a blast talking to the pilot, as well as the employees inside the building. We got there about an hour early, and they were able to go ahead and let us go up! Awesome experience.

    This site doesn't list ALL the package options. So, when we got there, we upgraded to a bigger tour that lasted a little longer. It was so much fun, that it felt like it was over too fast. LOL! My first time in a helicopter and no issues with motion sickness or nervousness. Would love to fly again and for much longer if I could afford it.

    Parker our pilot was amazing. I'd request him if we were to come back. The helicopter tour was really fun. We did the 15-20 min tour. It was worth every penny. Pictures before and after were a nice option to have. Hilton Head was a lot of fun to see from the skies!
