I highly recommend this activity. All the staff was so friendly and helpful. Damian was our pilot and was so much fun and interesting. The flight was beautiful and could not have gone better. Great activity, friendly staff and beautiful surroundings.

Thanks for your review Chris and you're right about the mimosas... there definitely isn't a better reason to have an adult beverage before most people arrive at work ;) !
