Loved it. First time in a helicopter and even with a little bit of turbulence little according to the pilot we loved the tour. We opted for the 30 minute flight. Taking us down the side of the rockies down to lake MInnewanka and back up the Bow Valley. The time flew sorry for the pun by.
Worth every penny! Darren was a great pilot and tour guide. It was a very clear day with calm winds. The van ride was also very interesting with our Native American driver giving us a history lesson on the way to the heliport.

Thank you to our pilot, Darrin, for a really fine 55-minute tour.
We were a little worried that the weather was going to cancel our flight but it cleared up just in time. The trip was a great adventure from start to finish, the pick up from Banff was great and a very friendly guy, even though he is afraid of heights and flying.
The base is really nice, hot and cold drinks and nibbles provided. We didn't wait long to be shown to our helicopter and introduced to the pilot, he was lovely and very informative, I was a little worried when he said he had only been flying for 18 months but I had no need to worry.
The flight was good there was only the 3 of us family and the pilot aboard, had fantastic views.
I thoroughly recommend this trip we did the 30 minute one and it was well worth the money.
Was the best thing ever, it was hit and miss wether we were going to be able to go due to wind conditions, and the pilot did have to change the route we took, which was a bit unfortunate but still very well worth doing, and we appreciated that it was for our safety this was done. Life time experience
Haven't got the words to adequately describe the thrill of climbing to over 11 thousand feet and sailing over the snow covered mountain tops. A brilliant hour.
Great tour! The pilot made sure both sides of the helicopter saw everything equally. Very helpful and nice staff. Would recommend this tour.

This was a great tour! I was worried about setting up hotel pick up but it was a piece of cake. The helicopter tour was amazing. The weather was a bit cloudy and the pilot did a great job at getting us into some beautiful mountain passes without creating a bumpy ride! A+ all around.
I took the flight with a friend whom actually lives in Calgary and has been a pilot of helicopters himself....we were both most impressed with safety, local knowledge and the professionalism of the company.
Would highly recommend.
this was great, the weather again was amazing, the set up was very professional, the pilot was great at explaining the surrounding scenery and the flight was exactly what was promised
The pick up was on time and the driver a very nice guy who told us a lot about his First Nations culture which was great. At the helicopter airport, all was well organised. The trip was wonderful. The only downside, is that the airport is a long way out, hence flying time is limited. I would suggest taking the longest flight time trip to take in more.
There were 5 seats available for passengers. When I boarded the helicopter there were only rear facing seats remaining. Therefore, for the 20 minute sightseeing flight I could not see forward. That would be OK if the purpose of the flight was transportation. only. However, I paid for a sightseeing flight, not a transportation flight. Therefore I didn't get what I paid for.
