Our Sunset Helicopter Ride was fabulous! Our pilot Zach was awesome and instantly relaxed away any lingering nervousness we may have had. He was friendly, professional and courteous. The weather was perfect and the timing captured a beautiful sunset over the Philly skyline. Chilled mini bottles of champagne were a nice touch! Highly recommend this experience for an extra-special occasion! Our kids gifted us this experience and it was truly spectacular!

Hello Caroline, We are glad to hear that you had a fabulous time! Your kids are wonderful gift givers! It is always nice to hear when our partners make an experience extra memorable. We hope you book another spectacular adventure soon! Cheers, Julissa
This was our first ride in a helicopter so we have nothing to compare it with, but the ride was smooth and comfortable. At a cruising height of 500 ft. we could easily identify all the popular sights in and around Philadelphia. From Independence Mall to the Art Museum to the Zoo to the stadiums in South Philly, everything was clearly and easily identifiable. My family loved the aerial pix and vids we took.

Hello Brian, I am delighted to hear that you had such an amazing time out on this flight. I love hearing that smooth logistics, spectacular views, and a wonderful pilot helped add to the experience as a whole. The champagne was just the cherry on top of the incredible flight you got to experience. I hope we have the chance to get you out on another magnificent flight in the future! Best, Brooke
So worth every penny. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience!
My husband booked a sunset tour, however they had us start the tour at 7:15 and land at 8, sunset isn’t until 8:30, so of course we didn’t see the sunset. This was complete false advertisement. When we called to complain about this, the women Maria was zero help. I would never recommend this company to anyone.
Response from Virgin Experience Gifts
Hello Nicole Thank you for sharing how your experience went. My sincerest apologies that this flight didn’t go as well as it could have. We love to create special memories and sympathize as it didn’t live up to its full potential. I can totally understand the disappointment of not experiencing the sunset during your flight. I do hope you were able to enjoy the scenery and views from the helicopter. I have gone ahead and passed all of your feedback to my team. Thanks, Ryan
