My husband booked a helicopter tour of Atlanta for my birthday. He found Alpha to be the best price around and was really excited to give me such an awesome present! Sadly, the owner/pilot forgot us. We called him to find out if were were waiting in the correct location only to find out that he hadn't even left his home yet! Even though he remembered to bill my husband's credit card upon booking (before the actual flight), he forgot to write the reservation down on his calendar. Yes, folks, I'm serious. Once reminded, he showed up 35 minutes later than the appointment time. I guess we were lucky he was able to show up at all. He was a nice guy but didn't give a decent apology or anything. No discount, no extra tour time, nada. On the bright side, he did take us to see the requested downtown area, didn't talk the entire time, and consented to take a picture of us before he darted off post-tour. However, we won't go with him for any future tours. We'd rather pay more for a more professional experience.

I wanted to do something different with my soul mate this year. I called Alpha Helicopter, not knowing what to really ask. They were excellent in working with me & so willing to expalin the many options. Plus they were the best price around. We took a tour of the city at night, WOW. We then took our son for a ride & they let him sit up front!
