Superlatives are not enough to describe this adventure. Two WWII Tiger Moth Biplanes. Two pilots, flying together up the lake and setting down on the shore. A romantic picnic for two. Pure awesomeness. Six stars.

Very professional set up, building confidence to sit in the open front seat of a Tiger Moth over wonderful scenery. Very highly recommended. Not cheap but worth the money. Do it.
