I know how you feel IrishOzBoy. Sometimes the experience is undescribable. I've been flying for over 35 years now and sometimes it still takes my breath away. Thanks for the review.

Thanks TonyP for the great review. The helicopter comes into its own when people are short on time. You traveled about 700 kilometers that day and still had time to enjoy some really interesting ground activities.

Absolutely fantastic day out. Unique and very Territorian. Great pubs to visit, scenery is amazing and whole experience leaves you grinning all day (and a few days later too).

Thanks Ozziebotts for your very accurate review. The pub crawl is very 'Territory' and unique. I'm really pleased you're going to smile when you think about this unforgettable experience.

Hi the cost of the tour is $980. Helicopter holds 3 people so you do get it cheaper if there is 3 of you. I would try and book as soon as possible if you wanted to go.
