This was hands down one of the best parts of our trip. Such an amazing experience; especially for LOTR fans. Our pilot, Chris, was awesome. We were able to enjoy the unbelievable scenery and nerd out. We loved every second. Truly a great, family-owned business....More

We took a helicopter tour of Mt. Owen and Mt. Olympus. These 2 mountains were the sites of some scenes from the Lord of the Rings movies. Our pilot was Charlie and he gave us an outstanding experience. We highly recommend Reid.
