TC Helicopters Tours Reviews
We took the sunset tour from Traverse City, as a birthday present for my husband. We traveled west to the sleeping Bear dunes, north to Leland area, and back south along the west shore of west bay... more »
Very Exciting and Memorable Helicopter Ride. It is really beautiful to see Traverse City from the Air. Our Pilot was very professional and pointed out landmarks during our flight. I highly recomend.... more »
Beautiful views but the helicopter wasn’t what I expected. Surprised my husband with the Sleeping Bear & Beyond tour on a trip up north for our anniversary. Very easy to arrange it around our schedule, even though it was during the busy Cherry Festival. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. I had to call to make it just a bit later due to travel taking longer than planned, and that was not a problem. Our pilot, Ryder, gave us lots of interesting information about the area as we flew over. Views were absolutely breathtaking! The only reason this isn’t a 5 star review is the helicopter itself. It was much smaller than I expected & kind of looked like a flying tin can. Had a few reservations about getting on it after seeing it, but everything went well. Just wasn’t quite the glamorous surprise I had hoped for.
Helicopter tours and charters. Fantastic company! Very clean and well maintained equipment and friendly staff.
