Nothing compares with an air-tour of Barbados
You haven’t experienced the beauty of Barbados until you have seen our island from the air. By “from the air” I don’t mean the last 5 minutes as your jet lands at Grantley Adams airport. That is nothing compared with a half an hour of slow and low flying around the island in a helicopter. You see sights you’ve never seen before even if you’ve lived here all your life.
For my birthday I treated myself and a friend to a helicopter ride with Horizon Helicopters.
I was nervous at first never having been in a helicopter, but the flight was smooth and within a minute I was enjoying the view. When we took off it was like a fast elevator. The pilot was friendly and explained what was going to happen so nothing was a surprise.
For me, the majesty of our rugged Atlantic East Coast was the best. For my friend it was seeing the house where she was born and the gully and places where she and her cousins played as children.
It was worth every dollar and I would like to repeat the experience every year for my birthday. I highly recommend a ride with Horizon Helicopters to all my friends.
