Mit is a very competent pilot, not to mention charming and funny. He personalizes the trip and you see all the highlights of Golden Bay, Abel Tasman and the surrounding area. If you are looking at a flying tour he's your man. Highly recommend.

The landing strip is quite close to Browns Hut, a 20 to 30 minute walk. To get an exact idea I would advise emailing Mit directly at Adventure Flights.
