We highly recommend this flight. Honestly the most amazing experience - breathtaking 360 views from a totally different perspective. Shaun was a fantastic pilot, very knowledgeable and friendly. Shaun and Toni could not have been more accommodating and so great to book and fly with!

We did coach, cruise and fly which I would recommend as you get a few stops and some great picture opportunities. It is a full day trip but worth the time
