My wife and I decided to do this at the last minute and were so glad we did. Kylie was super nice and took us on a short flight around the area. It was well worth the money and a lot of fun.

As a family we enjoyed an awesome flight with Ivan. He's passionate about what he does and the region he lives in. He was very generous with our flight and went well beyond expectation. Amazing way to view the vastness of this beautiful area. Fantastic
