This was the culmination for me of a month of touring New Zealand and Australia and it was amazing. The flight took in all the Sydney highlights - the harbour bridge, the opera house, the harbour itself, Bondi beach and Botany Bay. The staff made the arrangements very easy and smooth from pick up to the flight itself. They are all very welcoming and friendly and above all very professional - thank you.

This was amazing. Going over the harbor and the coast and seeing all of the landmarks from the air was an incredible experience. If you are in Sydney this is a must do!

All I can say is wow!!! What an experience and the best way of seeing the sites of Sydney. We had a perfect clear day and had a pilot who provided a great narrative. The 20 minute flight was over in a flash but was unforgettable. We loved every minute of us. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel so the whole experience was hassle free.

The experience was lovely and exciting! They were kind enough to accommodate my schedule change. Got picked up near my accommodation, then was dropped off at the place where the helis are. Waited for our turn, and since I was traveling solo I got the front seat! How amazing to see everything from up above.

It was a birthday gift for myself from my wife. The pilot was sure not to be in the air even 1 minute past the 20 minutes quoted. He never even made it over to the harbor bridge. The Opera house seemed a whole city away. And the Helicopter was extremely small and cramped. my wife sat in front and I sat in back with 2 other girls. Could barely fasten my seat belt. And I am only 6 ft. 190 lbs. The 2 girls were much smaller than me. It was not the Helicopter pictured on the website.
