My husband and kids had no idea we were kicking off our Banff vacation with this experience until 15 minutes before we were picked up from our hotel. Our flight totally delivered in the wow department, and we were thrilled to have the helicopter all... More

We took the Three Sister mountain 12 minute tour and it was our first time in a helicopter and we looooooved it! It was a fantastic experience and the mountains are beautiful in the winter! The guys were real cool and the transportation is a plus since we didnt have a car here.

Amazing trip at a very good price. Every one there works hard to make it an experience that every one enjoys. The price was excellent within my little girl going half price and my son free. Never seen my wife so excited. This really is an trip you should not miss.

Spent the money for the 30 minute Assiniboine tour but didn't get to see any of the highlights. The helicopter was filled to max capacity and it worked out that both, on the way to the Assiniboine mountain and back, the views were on the left hand side of the cab. My boyfriend and I sat in the back of... More

From being picked up at our resort through the greeting and orientaiton to the flight - all was excellent. Despite the cold temperatures, the heat in the helicopter was adequate... More

This is an absolute must. I took the 30 minute ride and saw some of the most breath-taking sites I've ever seen. Soaring above snow-capped mountains, glaciers valleys of trees and blue lakes. Pilot was very knowledgeable, pointing out everything we flew past. If you're anywhere near Calgary, definitely worth the drive and the price.

We booked this trip as part of our tour around the Rockies with my parent who were celebrating their Golden Wedding. It was a truly an amazing experience that will live in my memory for many years to come. The crew were very professional and helped my mum who is physically disabled t the aircraft and onboard.
