The staff was friendly and professional. It was a nice and unique experience. I would have rated them 5 stars but my husband's headphones didn't work and he wasn't able to hear the pilot's commentary throughout the flight and receive the whole experience. When I spoke to the staff about the issue they offered me the groupon rate as a compensation, I would have booked another flight with even more people if they would have offered my husband a discount or free flight.

Pretty new helicopter, friendly and knowledgeable pilot. This is worth doing as it is a little different than the river cruise, but gives you a different perspective. A little bit a hike to get there, but we easily UBER'ed both ways.
