Little bit on the expensive side, but well worth it for the experience and sites you see. Look for coupons. I saved $10 booking through a thrid party program. Helicopters and facility was clean. Pilot was very friendly and informative.

Hi Felessia, we actually have a 2 person minimum and our tours range in price from $5 per person (5 miles) all the way up to $150 per person (36 miles). So it really just depends on how far you want to fly!
