Firstly, the flight was amazing and extremely well organised. The day was clear and we had wonderful views of Sydney Harbour etc. A spectacular harbour from the ground but extremely impressive from the air and flying at such a low height you see and appreciate so many points of interest from a very different angle. WOW. Great on ground facilities with excellent amenities and staff. Our pilot for the flight was Cameron Clarke. A very professional young man whom instilled every bit of confidence in us, both before and during the flight. We will definitely be recommending the company and the team. Email instructions from our booking were clear and we had no problem finding the terminal.Rosemary Ryan
Myself and 2 family members from UK took the flight and we had the best time and the best views in the world. My cousin was thrilled with the fact that she flew over the bridge, walked across it, sailed under it and then drove over it to go home all in the one day. Considering she had never seen it before that was quite an effort. Our pilot was wonderful. Well worth the spend.
This was AMAZING! A total bargain.. I bought it for my parents for their visit to Sydney and it was the highlight of their trip. And.. The staff went above and beyond with their customer service. I would definitely buy this again.
