Awful communication. I've been trying to book since December and now I can't even get in touch with them for a refund. They won't answer emails, deleting our Instagram comments. Called the airport and the woman said she gets these complaints constantly. So disappointed with...More

Rude owner. Terribly run business. Flight was cool, but the experience surrounding it was miserable. Must have been 20 people booked for the same time slot.

I purchased two Queen City helicopters tours through Groupon and received confirmation. The night before I was scheduled to attend (7:30pm) they cancelled my reservation. They do not respond to phone calls or emails. I would not recommend, this seems like a scam.

GROUPON(ER) BEWARE. I'm deeply disappointed . . . I wasted 3 hours! I showed up a half hour early (as stated in my confirmation email) expecting to leave for a 15 minute flight around the city promptly at 4:00. I sat, and sat to no...More

I don't use these words lightly, but these people are crooks. After paying in advance and making a reservation for an anniversary helicopter tour of the city, my flight was cancelled 30 minutes before. After 2 subsequent last minute cancellations, I was offered a refund....More
