From the bayou to the Dome, from the river to the lake, from the cemeteries to the mouth of the river, from the Quarter to the Spanish Plaza, you can capture it all in one flight.

My first small plane flight and we had a blast. I don't know if you could wash that smile off my husband face. We will be back. Everyone was very friendly.

I purchased a flight for a friends while we were on a 4 day trip in New Orleans. This turned out to be the high point of an already great trip. The staff was very friendly and the pilot was very cool. He even gave us a lift when we had trouble getting a cab! Thank was going way beyond good customer service.

I purchased this flight as a birthday gift and it far exceeded my expectations. It was an awesome experience and the customer service received from the pilot and staff was exceptional. Definitely worth the price. A totally different perspective on the City!

I went with my daughter on the flight for 1 hour to see New Orleans from above and it was fantastic. The people working there they are very nice, friendly and professional. They even recommended us places to see and restaurants in New Orleans (one recommendation, Lilette was maybe the best in town). Before the flight they send us to visit the brad new redecorated small airport. Very nice like in the 20’.
The pilot was nice and explaining everything before the flight and during the flight he was a very good guide showing us a lot of places and pointing out facts. He even gave my daughter the chance to take off the plane on her own!!! She was so excited that she started to laugh.
As the taxis were difficult to find they even offer us to drop us back into town with their personal car. I can only recommend this tour for the long duration (1 hour), you see a lot of the city and surroundings, and the friendly, nice and professional staff.
