What people are saying about Alberta, Canada

My wife and I decided to take this up as "start the honey moon with a bang" idea, and these guys did not miss the mark. Hands down one of the best experiences I've had touring in a helicopter. Our pilot, Kyle, was such a cool dude and full of so much humble knowledge about landscape and the history of Canada. And Danielle, our guide for the bubbles tour was the coolest and nicest woman, it was truly a pleasure to meet her and she took such good care of us while out on the lake. Needless to say, we made memories for a life time with those guys. Oh...and the food they provide, the cook, oh my God. It was fantastic. She even accomadated my wife's food allergies to make sure she could have the same food. It truly was an experience. If you guys read this, good shit.

From take off to landing Ralph, our pilot, was informative and interactive so we could enjoy the views perfectly. If you are in the area this is a must! Thank you to all the crew at the Heliport for making the visit memorable!

Our pilot was amazing and the trio was a very cool experience. Looking forward to coming back and doing it again in the summer.

The staff is amazing and the experience was amazing. Helicopter and snowshoe tour was the highlight of our trip.

Best experience!! Pilot was amazing 10/10 would go again and go for the longer tour!! Worth every penny!
