    Planned a ride for my son's 12th birthday in April. I am a bit late getting around to writing my review and have since forgotten our pilots name, which is a shame because he was WONDERFUL! We took a short flight as I had no idea if my son would enjoy the experience nor how uncomfortable the plane might be. We all had an amazing time! You couldn't wipe the smile off of my son's face for at least an hour after. We allowed him up front to enjoy the view, see the controls, and ask about 1,000 questions of our patient and professional pilot. Sitting in the back was surprisingly comfortable (better than my husband's sports car!) We can't wait to try some longer trips to view the beautiful PNW from the air. I HIGHLY recommend Envi adventures!

    Great time. Professional pilot. Highly recommended. We had a short flight but got to see and experience a lot.

    Enjoyed an excellent first of the morning tour over downtown Portland/Gorge area. We have lived in Portland for over 30 years but have never experienced a flight over the area on a small private plane. Very enjoyable time with our pilot and tour guide, Clay. Would highly recommend.

    So much fun. Would recommend everyone give it a try. Very nice pilot that shared a lot of information.

    The pilot was super friendly and answered all of our questions. It was really cool to fly over the water and hills.

    I first want to state that our pilot Spencer was wonderful in every way. He was very invested in our experience from start to finish, and my rating would be "excellent" if it only pertained to him. I'm being generous by saying "average," simply because I hate to reflect badly on him in any way. I'm not sure if my complaint should be directed to TripAdvisor (who does not appear to have a way for me to contact them directly) or with the provider company Envi. The writer of this booking description did not prioritize the customer experience by providing accurate information. My brother and I booked this tour as a Father's Day gift for our dad - planning that all 3 of us would enjoy the experience together. We were specifically seeking a helicopter ride, and booked this trip only because it was advertised as such. Although we were asked to give the weight of one person at booking, I couldn't find any information that stated a maximum weight for the group. When we arrived, our first surprise was that we could not all 3 be included in the ride. Spencer was great, and he figured out a way to allow us to book a second trip so we could still all participate, though this doubled our cost. The second surprise was that this was a plane tour instead of a helicopter tour. Spencer did everything in his power to make this a fun outing for us, but he couldn't turn his plane into a helicopter and he had to charge us for the second trip. We made the best of a pretty disappointing and unexpectedly expensive situation, but we will not be trusting TripAdvisor descriptions in the future.

    Flying over the Columbia in a private plane was an awesome experience. On top of that, we had the coolest pilot. Super professional and down to earth.

    Spencer Engwall was amazing!! He was fun and very informative. It is much more affordable and a longer ride (20min) compared to others. I would recommend Envi Adventures to anyone who is interested. Envi Adventures we loved It. Thank you for the unforgettable experience. We will be back!

    First of all, I want to really thank Corey for being superbly flexible. I purchased my tour 2 years ago and wasn't able to get time to utilize my ticket due to either the weather or other events. Corey not only made it possible that I could still attend my tour years later but provided such friendly, personable service! Next I want to thank our pilot, Spencer. His personality and education of the aircraft and the geography took what could have been a regular flight and made it an absolute joy. I was very nervous as it was my first small plane ride and he went out of his way to make my tour as comfortable as possible. Overall, I rate my experience with Envi Adventures a 10/10! It was super fun and an experience of a lifetime. You won't be disappointed with Envi, especially if it's your first time. Thank you!
