Other “Tour” Companies
Please be aware that sadly almost anyone can claim to be a business operator online, a tour operator, or even a helicopter tour operator. You don’t even need a helicopter. Third party bookers from across the country are up charging the client and they know nothing of the local tour they are offering. The internet allows space for content that is constantly and fraudulently represented, misused, or stolen, falsely representing an industry. This can hurt the local businesses as it undermines genuine operators.
We at Bay Aerial take pride in offering an honest tour with a genuine value. It has taken us 17 years and we are still learning. We have found that solid companies weather the storms and are usually honest and transparent about their operations. So for us at Bay Aerial please give us a call to hear our local knowledge first hand and an honest representation of our tour.
In the helicopter tour space a warning is necessary, as “tour operators” pop up and disappear, they come and go, and with little warning. Tour Operators will claim they know how this is done in a very short time, when after 17 years we are still refining the process to better assist our customers.
So please do your due diligence and research the helicopter company that represents the industry respectfully. Be sure they have experience and local knowledge. Check the reviews and maybe speak with another tour company to cross reference what you are hearing.
Just because one company charges more money does not make them better or mean they have a better tour. And the opposite applys as well, just because a company is less expensive doesnt mean its a better deal. Check out the offering and make a knowledgeable decision, as your life and the life of your friends or family depends on it.
