With excellent views of the Smoky Mountain National Park you round the back side of Bluff Mountain over 6,000 acres of undeveloped land. While flying low over the tree tops you cross over the top of Bluff mountain where views go from 100 feet to 80 miles in the blink of an eye, it truly is a sight to see!

    We were so disappointed as our flight got canceled due to bad weather. This I understand is not under their control. However we weren’t given accountable answers for the refunds and were told that we have canceled in our system and TripAdvisor should return you the money and that they aren’t accountable

    My daughter has wanted to do a helicopter tour for as long as I can remember and they did a great job. Everyone was friendly and kind from the person checking you in, to the boarding attendant Michael, to the pilot Wade. They made her much anticipated flight exactly what she was hoping for!

    It was my husband and my first time riding in a helicopter. It was amazing and we want to do it again! Our pilot was entertaining and made sure to tell us what we were seeing below. It was definitely worth the tour and everybody was very friendly. We chose the Blissful Romance Package. The staff had set up a table for my husband and I to look at all our goodies we got in the package. They were so kind and took more photos of us while we were enjoying the romance package we chose.

    All the staff were super friendly and helpful. Our pilot, Cole, and boarding assistant, Aaron, were fun to be around!! We enjoyed our experience! The view was beautiful, just wish it was located more in the mountain range.

    This was our 1st time in Tennessee coming from Miami, Florida and we were in search of someone to give us a tour of the area. We called Flysceneic's number, the woman on the phone gave us a rundown of the different prices, length of flights, etc. After paying for our package, we then drove to the actual area about 7 miles away, where we would be boarding the helicopter. We quickly checked in with the guy at the counter, then given instructions regarding the flight by our Boarding Attendant Aaron. Once boarded, our pilot Cole took us on a 15-min flight over the area, seeing Bluff Mountain , mansions, huge water parks, etc. Very knowledgeable pilot with great conversation. IF WE ARE EVER BACK IN TENNESSEE, WE WILL RETURM DIRECTLY TO THEM !!! TOP QUALITY AND CUSTOMER SERVICE !!!

    Seriously SO MUCH FUN. The extended lake tour is about 4 minutes. But it was the coolest 4 minutes. Our pilot was Camden and our boarding attendant was Jay. Both so nice and knowledgeable. We will definitely be doing this again, and investing in the other tours as well!
