We were driving past and stopped to enquire about a flight. Thirty minutes later we were in the air. The scenery was unbelievable. Snowcapped volcanoes, excellent commentary from our pilot. Value for money we felt. A once in a lifetime experience!! Do it!

The flight was super smooth, and the pilot (Matt?) did a fantastic job of not only ensuring our comfort but also of explaining the sights. The views were superb, and a good deal for the price we paid. Glad we drove past! :)
