The package was a bit misleading, make sure to read fine print. They are located 2.5 hours from Banff so when you search banff heli tour don’t just assume. They weren’t very organized and there was a lot of time where we sat around and had no idea what was going on. We paid $1400 for our family of 3 for this and they crammed other people into the plane with us. It was such a tight fit it was uncomfortable. They did not show us Abraham lake and bubbles from the plane. We had to drive to the lake afterwards. Could have done that on our own. The flight was extremely quick (read fine print) they didn’t offer the fire or coffee or tea or marshmallows but when we finished we saw them offer it to the following group… that would have been nice when we sat around for almost an hour wondering what we were waiting for between the heli tour and the lake tour especially with a kid… there was a huge lack of communication. But the helicopter tour guide Kyle was awesome and so nice!!!

My wife and I decided to take this up as "start the honey moon with a bang" idea, and these guys did not miss the mark. Hands down one of the best experiences I've had touring in a helicopter. Our pilot, Kyle, was such a cool dude and full of so much humble knowledge about landscape and the history of Canada. And Danielle, our guide for the bubbles tour was the coolest and nicest woman, it was truly a pleasure to meet her and she took such good care of us while out on the lake. Needless to say, we made memories for a life time with those guys. Oh...and the food they provide, the cook, oh my God. It was fantastic. She even accomadated my wife's food allergies to make sure she could have the same food. It truly was an experience. If you guys read this, good shit.
