This was our first helicopter ride. Family owned business. Everyone was friendly, courteous and answered any questions we had. The pilot was also all of the above and has a good sense of humor which was nice. We chose the 6 minute tour this time, we will be back for a longer flight in the not too distant future. If you visit the Hilton Head Island, I recommend you take a helicopter ride with Hilton Head Helicopter Tours at the airport.
