    The driver who collected us from the city in his mini bus was really friendly and the pilot was really nice. He was informative in explaining the history of Sydney and in pointing out all the various landmarks. 20 minutes was a long time and we really enjoyed the experience, especially the initial take off. Well done guys, you made our day very special indeed.

    Der Flug war spektakulär und zugleich sehr informativ weil der Pilot sehr viele Infos über Sydney, die überflogene Sehenswürdigkeiten und insbesondere viele Tips zu den Stränden gab. Die 20 Minuten waren schnell vorbei aber sehr erlebnisreich. Man sieht Sydney aus der Luft aus so zu sagen bester Lage und kann viele sehr gute Bilder machen. Vor dem Flug gab es noch gemeinsames Foto vor dem Hubschrauber. Ich kann die Veranstaltung sehr empfehlen
