I have no problem believing the experience provided by this service is a wonderful experience. Open air, low and slow, over San Diego. It'd be a once in a lifetime experience! Unfortunately for those on the flight path, it's a multiple-times-a-day experience. Imagine if your...More

This is a great sightseeing trip. Everyone there was professional and the service was great. If you want to see San Diego from the air this is a must do.

This was a gift for my husband's birthday. At first he had his doubts, but it was wonderful. I wished we booked a longer flight. We will definitely do this again.
