It was a very nice flight. We made the flight almost at the end of our trip so that we could see what we still had to do. The view was incredible and recommended to everyone. Everything was very well organized, from the pick-up, over the flight, to the return transfer.

From start to finish, Novictor Helicopter was a class act...with personal pickup/dropoff at the hotel, great, friendly, accommodating staff, professional/skillful/informative pilot (who also was very attentive to our comfort level, eg, my wife was initially white knuckle), and an incredible flight over the island...hands down a highlight of our trip. Highly recommended!

Lots of fun! Joey the guide was great! I would recommend not trying to take pictures/ videos with the doors off! Too windy or maybe I’m just not skilled enough with using my phone! I enjoyed it very much!
