It was a spur of the moment stop on my way to Key West. I stopped in to see if they could schedule me on a trip quickly...as in right now, since I was on my way to Key West to meet a friend at the airport. Justin was absolutely a sweetheart and said he could accommodate me. OMG, what a beautiful thing to do. It was probably a top highlight of my 12 day road trip. I felt safe, and Justin was full of information, and great at pointing out ocean wildlife, we saw sea turtles, dolphins, and I saw a shark (he missed it LOL). You won't regret it.

Totally worth it! Dude was super chill and pointed out some great spots to look at. We got to see manatee, shark, and rays from above and it was legit the coolest experience, especially in the Keys. Definitely worth the stop.

I bought this trip to show my daughter an aerial view of Marathon. The trip exceeded my expectations. Our pilot was knowledgeable of the area and the history of it. He was personable and professional. I would recommend this to any resident or tourist.

Justin was an amazing pilot. We did an hour tour and he was so friendly and informative. We did a shorter tour last year. We will definitely be back on all of our Key trips. Highly recommend. 10 out of 10

This was undoubtedly the smoothest helicopter flight we’ve ever experienced. Our pilot, Justin, realized we had prior Keys knowledge and tailored his discussion accordingly. We could not be more pleased with this adventure.

I wasn't sure what to expect out of a helicopter tour. Figured it was just another one of those touristy things that costs money. This was so fun and well worth it! The views were great, the ride was smooth. There was actually a lot to see from a very different perspective, some of the historical spots, cool trivia, great island homes, and sea life including rays, sharks and sea turtles! I was impressed! I think a large part of it was Justin our pilot who was laid back, informative and fun.Now my wife thinks I should learn to fly!

My husband and I did the Sunset Tour. It was lovely, even though the sun stayed hidden behind the clouds. I'm so glad we included this in our first vacation to the Keys. We'll definitely do a longer flight next time!

The tour was awesome, so was our pilot!! When we arrived he was already waiting for us. Everything was well prepared and after some short safety instructions we directly took off. During the flight we were explained and shown literally the entire area. It was so much fun!! We definitely will be back.

Discovery Tour was breathtaking! Shortest of the tours, but zero complaints. Made me certain that spending more for the longer tours would be 100% worth it. Perfect for young kids as well. Pilot (Jason, I think?) was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, answering all of my chatty daughter’s questions lol. She was really nervous, but he helped her relax and enjoy it. Discount for first responders and military. If you want to experience the waters of the Keys from a unique viewpoint, but don’t want to spend tons of money, you can’t go wrong with Ultimate Helicopter Tours Discovery Tour. Will book a tour with them every time we’re in the Keys! Longer tour next time! Oh, and we went on a (slightly windy, but otherwise beautiful) Saturday, and were able to book, and fly within a couple hours. Excellent availability! Zero issues booking.

Decided on spur of the moment to take a helicopter ride. Googled and Ultimate HeliTours came up. My husband called and talked to Justin. He gave a break down of prices and recommendations. He was very helpful. We booked and took the ride. It was incredible!! Justin took us out and did an awesome job with the tour. We would definitely do it again. Would also highly recommend this company & Justin for the guide:)

Spend the money, it is so worth it! We did a 45 minute tour, Justin made a custom tour to the specific places we wanted to see, and he made sure we could see the rays, sharks and manatees. He explained the history and was very informative. It was a wonderful experience. The colors are amazing from the air!

Everything in the Keys is killer expensive - especially for what you get. This place is a notable exception. Hands down the best money we spent in our time here. Our pilot was great, the views were tremendous, and everyone involved was friendly as could be. Don't be put off by the price of the longer tours. They are worth every penny. Thanks again!

Alberto was a great pilot. I hadn’t been on a helicopter in over 20 years when I was in the Marines. Have been reluctant to get back in one and it was a great experience to heal over old memories. Thanks to Alberto for showing us a great time.

My wife and I are on vacation near Marathon FL. Drove past the sign and decided to try it out. One of the highlights of our trip. Our pilot Cody was fantastic. The flight was super smooth as were the takeoff and landing. Saw lots of turtles, dolphins and sharks. Cody pointed out several landmarks and general information. If you are in the area I highly recommend taking a helicopter tour with Old City Helicopters.
