Service was very friendly. Staff and Nicolas the pilot provided all the information we needed. The flight over Garibaldi park was breathtaking and totally worth the price we paid. Flying over the P2P gondola in Whistler was much fun on the way back.

We had a group of seven that chose the 50-minute flight. We had a very fun time and the staff and pilots were amazing! We all enjoyed it and loved the interaction we had with the pilot. Would highly recommend doing this. Will take my family there next time we are in the Vancouver area!
