Taking off was a little shaky because of the wind. After getting use to the windy conditions, I was more at ease. The pilot certainly knew how to handle the helicopter even with strong winds blowing. The view was spectacular and we certainly covered a lot of ground to take some lovely pictures. It was a very memorable experience and I am glad to have had the chance to take this ride.

As a first timer, I was completely nervous & opted for my door on but after meeting my pilot, I felt completely safe & regret not having my door off experience. Plus the CEO was our pilot, (girl power) but I enjoyed how humble, knowledgeable and welcoming she was. Thanks Nicole :) Highly recommending Rainbow helicopter tour to everyone!
