Unbelievable Experience:

"Literally one of the best things I have ever done in my life. It was my first time in a helicopter and I loved every moment of it. I could not get over what I was looking at, it felt like a dream. The pilot had fantastic knowledge of the whole area which made the whole experience that much better." (Lauren N)
