REVIEWS OF Black Hills Aerial Adventures IN South Dakota

Chester Weber

Well worth the money

Roxanne Zeger

So I was driving to Crazy Horse, and I saw these helicopters on the side of the road. I thought, what a perfect way to see Crazy Horse! I went in and they saw me right away. Then I got escorted to my private helicopter. The prices are excellent! So, the ride was outstanding!! I was impressed. Got to see Crazy Horse close and personal. In addition the landscape was amazing. The tour guide was very informative and told me a lot about the history. Truly a remarkable place! I recommend anyone visiting South Dakota, go on the helicopter tour!

Holly Bailey

The Staff & Pilot at Black Hills Aerial Adventures were awesome! Very Friendly & Knowledgeable. We were curious & they answered all questions with ease and understanding. Being big girls we were nervous, they were 100% accommodating & very friendly! I would definitely recommend checking it out!

Heather Lynn Greene

The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. A must do for your bucket list.

Cleta Cole

WOW! I LOVED IT.. My first time to fly in a copter.. My pilot was AWESOME. Breath taking be view. Try it you will love it. ..

Kathleen Hines

My husband and I took the Mt. Rushmore tour #5 ($175/ea) and found it to be a great ride. The pilot was informative, pointing out a buffalo (which we could not see), but did see Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, the Black Hills, Needles Hwy and Sylvan Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and later in the car drove Needles Hwy around the Lake and viewed it on land. Beautiful country. We would recommend it very much.

We spent three days enjoying the incredible scenery of Badlands National Park - except for the annoying LOUD helicopter tours overhead, courtesy of Black Hills Aerial Adventures. Every hike, picnic, and wildlife viewing experience was interrupted by their helicopters; it was like hiking in a war zone. While I understand that helicopter trips can be fun for some, it's anything but fun for the people on the ground - destroying the feeling of wilderness and beauty. Thanks to this experience, I will never take a helicopter sightseeing trip. Oddly, when I first posted a review, the owner stated "In the three days that you were able to hike and explore, we were able to provide an experience to many elderly, infirm and/disabled people that may not have been able to see and do the things that you were able to do." But it's a FACT that Black Hills Aerial Adventures' helicopters are neither ADA COMPLIANT nor ACCESSIBLE. None of their reviews are from anyone who mentioned the issue accessibility. However, on the ground, many park trails meet ADA requirements. Like all USA National Parks, the facilities, bathrooms, exhibitions, are also all accessible.

(Translated by Google) Indian Park National Pass is not valid, you have to pay separately $ 30. (Original) Индейский парк национальный пасс не действует, приходится платить отдельно 30 долларов.

paul wedin

First time flying Sasa most beautiful country it was an amazing adventure needed to last longer

Jonathan Crandall

A fantastic journey through the skies about and around the Crazy Horse monument. Professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff were great with answering in-flight questions my kids threw at them. Safety was a a high priority and every step of our trip was very carefully managed, which made me feel at ease taking my 6, 8, 11, and 12 year olds. Raving fans here.

Brittney Townsend

Great experience on the cheap. $49 for the basic helicopter ride, upgrades available for longer fly time/ more sites. You should have 2 riders or you may have to ride with an additional single passenger. Decent space in helicopter cabin & staff was very friendly, even took several photos for us after the flight. We plan on another flight soon!

la tremenda sinaloa

Simply the best!

Fred Newton

Judy McClelland


Carmela Retana

Rosesue Reynolds

Gotten shorter then the last one I took

Greg Mack

We did the Mount Rushmore / Keystone tour for four people. The flight is a ton of fun, but goes by very quickly. If you plan to take photo's on a sunny day, wear dark/black clothing to reduce reflective glare on the windows. This was a unique and great way to experience Mount Rushmore.

We had a good time with pilot Morgan! Recommended! Amazing!

Liza Timmers

S Woodward

Had a fun and exciting family flying experience here. The outfit projected professionalism. I felt safe. Friendly, helpful and not pushy.

Sandy Sibley

Awesome ride for 30 year anniversary trip!

Cheryl Baker

I drove an hour for my appt. to be told upon check-in there would be a surcharge of $75 tacked on to the fee. The surcharge because I was the only one on the flight. #1. There is nothing in the website indicating this. I checked again. #2. The company messaged me two reminders about appt. time. They could have easily notified me about a possible surcharge if no one else signed up. The site does not allow us to see how many have registered for a flight so there is no opportunity to choose a flight based on occupancy. The employee then tried to sell a cheaper flight that was on special! To be clear, I would not miss $75, it the principle of the thing. I don't do people this way and I don't associate with people that do. I walked out upset and disappointed as I was so looking forward to the experience. The response from my email to the business was that it would be "passed on to the manager".

Joshua Najacht

Perfect day for a perfect flight -- the perfect gift for my son's 5th birthday! Thank you!

Elizabeth Sutherland

Fabulous! And the pilot is excellent with a sense of humor! Well worth the $$

Elijah Holliday

Rose Mary Kor

We had a delightful time!

Dale Balzer

Awesome, a must do if you want to see the area from God's view

Nichole Dawson

Great view of the Blackhill. If anyone goes to South Dakota, you have to see the Black Hills. They are beautiful and you can drive all around them. Theres a lot of tourist attractions. When you go make sure you get a view of the Black Hills and not the tourist attractions.

Kimberly Slinker

Philip BadAwesome

michael hanson

Fantastic way to see sights. The crew we're all friendly and very professional.

Jim Pahl

Wonderful people! Very friendly especially with people afraid of flying and with kids. Dan took my son out to a quiet helicopter to help. Rob talked with us about great places to see while in the area. Our pilot (his name starts with K, sorry I cannot remember) was funny, kind, and told us just what to expect the entire time. Also, many of them are military veteran. Thank you for your service to our country! Thank you for an awesome flight.

Michelle Mitchell

A great couple owns this place. It was a great flight over Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse!! Thank you!!

steve gooch

Excellent ride at reasonable prices!!!


Janelle McElyea

This is one of the BEST ways to see Crazy Horse and Mount Rushmore. Our pilot, Dan, was very knowledgeable about the sites and gave us a very pleasant and smooth ride.

Connie Brotzel

Everyone must do this, it's the only way to see the hills.

J Allan

An absolutely fantastic time, we stopped in on a whim and 10 minutes later we were airborne. Our pilot Bob was great at pointing out all the great aigts and finding us mountain goats an buffalo too. Needles from the back side is truly amazing, and crazyhorse from the air is far better than the ground. Seing the secret door behind Rushmore was a highlight, but my favorite is my beloved Harney Peak from the air.

Angela Hilgendorf

So much fun! Pilot was awesome and very knowledgeable.

Marion Hardisty

My wife & I walked reservation & were greeted & immediately taken care of. Michelle was awesome & really told us about our sights...not just blah blah blah tourist guide.

Howard Carlin

Awesome service and flight. These guys provide great service and information about surrounding sights as you are flying over them.

Greg Unger

This was the best decision I made. Took my daughter on a flight over Cuater State Park and Crazy Horse. Man was it great and they take such good care of you. The pilot was amazing.

Tim Leverty

Zoltan Vari

A wonderful experience

santos alonzo

Friendly staff but over inflated price for what they offer. They offer a quick view for $49.00 however it is a lure to get you to stop by and convince you to buy their other stuff.

Ant Vision

PatnLynn Mitchell


Malisa Niles

Great experience. Very short waiting time & passionate staff.

Troy B

Ted Dixon

Pilot was very professional and friendly and spoke about points of interest along the route. Flying in the old Bell 47 with the doors open especially fun! Fair warning, helicopters are expensive to fly in general and their prices reflect that. Also they charge a significant all or nothing fuel premium if you end up by yourself with the pilot.

Charles Vitton

They loved it.

Dave Bauer
