Little bit on the expensive side, but well worth it for the experience and sites you see. Look for coupons. I saved $10 booking through a thrid party program. Helicopters and facility was clean. Pilot was very friendly and informative.

I think the minimum number of person is 2. If you are single you may have to pay extra unless you go when it is low business...!
