We had a groupon deal for the mansion tour for 3 people, which was really good value. The helicopters only fit in 3 passengers making it very personal, rather than catering for big groups. The company is very professional and friendly. It was very easy to book, with lots of availability. They did call to rearrange our initial booking, but... More

What a ride. The best way to see New Port. Jeff was fantastic. Showed us some great sites from the air. You get a different view from the air than the land. But a must do if your in New Port.

This is one of those experiences where you really have to be ther to appreciate it. It's hard to describe it to someone who hasn't done it. I've done a couple of helicopter rides like this. I believe it is something everyone should try. Be a daredevil and have some fun! The views are just what you would expect -... More

I am quite afraid of heights but I cant wait to do this again. We flew at about 300 feet. The first 30 seconds and changing directions was a bit unnerving but it goes away after a few seconds and the owner/pilot will make gradual turns for you. I hope to try to fly without the door next time to... More

Excellent short flight over the Newport area, giving a different perspective. Very friendly and efficient, and it was nice that it was just the two of us, so we could choose our seats. When we told the pilot where we were staying he flew over our cottage! Good value for money as well.
