What a magnificent flight with Kylie, we were buzzing for the rest of the day. The views are gorgeous, what a place to see from the sky. Weren’t expecting to land in paradise so that also blew us away. Thank you so much Kylie, the number 1 pilot!

Amazing experience and one to remember. Laura was very knowledgeable and made us all feel safe from start to finish. Thanks!

We loved our heli flight, not only were the views majestical! well organised, super friendly staff, running on time!

It was smooth and with great history. The skipper also stopped a few places for photos which was great

John was an excellent driver and guide. Very informative & on schedule. Highly recommended.
