That's a terrible ride. They lie to us. They said that the ride would be 3min and 2miles (the one that I bought), but actually was 1min and less than 2miles. We paid $20, fly 4fan tour. I complained and they didn't anything. This company doesn't have a phone number or even a email address. You might have lucky buy... More

This was our first helicopter experience, and it was well worth the $. Note that they advertise a $20 helicopter tour - that is for only 3 mins, and you have to pay an additional $5 per person for the headphones. We opted for a longer tour, and are glad that we did. What a way to see all of... More

We went on the helicopter adventure for my 60th birthday. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Nate our pilot was awesome. None of us had ever been in a helicopter before so it was an amazing experience. A bit pricey but fun

None of our group had been in a helicopter before so we did the $40 adventure. Beware you will need to rent a headset to cancel out the noise and to talk during the ride. Was a fun great quick trip.

My wife had never been in a helicopter before so it was time to do it, pulled in, took the rather short $79 tour but went to 900' and around North Myrtle Beach. She loved it and now we have one more thing crossed off her bucket list.

Taking a helicopter ride was fun. We opted for one of the longer more expensive tours & were so happy we did. The pilot He even took us further than he was supposed to because he wanted us to see the Apache Pier. Really enjoyed the ride & loved the swooping in landing!!! Had a coupon for a free pic... More

First I want to thank our Pilots Robert and (Jesse pictured in helicopter) for great service and wonderful flight. I highly recommend this for everyone traveling to Myrtle Beach. (Disclaimer there is a 300lbs combined weight limit for couples.) The tours come in multiple packages starting at $20 and goes up from there depending on what type of flight and... More

Had a good time on the chopper ride. We just did the $20 option over Broadway, but that was enough to get a taste of riding in a helicopter. The staff and our pilot, Keith, could not have been nicer. Would have liked to have gone the ocean route but just couldn't justify the cost.

This was my first helicopter flight and probably my last. The vehicle appeared to be well maintained and new enough. Employees were obviously accustomed to hurrying passengers through and did not convey an attitude of fun, but they weren't terrible. Interesting activity but I felt nickeled and dimed because of the $5. Charge for the use of headphones during the... More
