My adult daughter and I took the 12 minute mansion tour. It was great! Pilot gave an in depth tour of all the mansions and answered all our questions. Ride was smooth from take off to landing. A must do event for everyone.

The team is very friendly. 2 person helicopter tour of the mansions is 12 minutes long and $150. Absolutely worth it!
