Very good activity. We had Champagne as soon as we arrived and were able to drink during the flight. The flight was amazing. We flew over all of Miami then the sea and then back to Miami with the pilot who was giving us the aerial tour of the site! A real joy. Small bonus I had chosen the 7 p.m. schedule and so we could see the sunset from the sky! To do again. The only constraint is the trip from the hotel to the site at our expense and difficult at peak times.

A nice tour. Caro the tour guide was great and gave a lot of information. Miami at night is a real highlight. A little tip, take long clothes with you, at least at this time of year it is very cold.

The tour guide was very nice my husband and I was running late due to getting lost but they was nice to wait on my husband to park.

Me comprometí con mi novia en el vuelo y todo fue Excelente, el piloto y el equipo fue super amable. Super recomendado.

Fue una gran experiencia, nos instruyeron muy bien para usar el velero, definitivamente regresamos.
