Great trip, Ben our pilot was fantastic very friendly. It is worth doing this flight to see Lake Amadeus it is spectacular. We were lucky be the only passengers on our flight so had great views. Can't recomm this trip enough
Absolutely excellent. Just how you organised perfect weather and flying conditions is beyond me. A highlight of our trip. Lake Amadeus was something everyone should see.
The only way to see the massive scale of the outback , and watch the sun rise over the red centre. Wow!!
A great way to see Uluru and surrounds. The helicopter ride in itself was an exciting, fun thing to do, very stable even on the windy day we travelled. The views were superb and the height allowed us to have a really amazing perspective of how huge the rocky monoliths are. A spectacular way to start your time at Ayers Rock. The only negative was that it was a little hard to hear the pilot's narrative, however, he was excellent and made us feel very welcome and safe.
My husband would give this a 5 and I would give it a 1, so we settled on a 3. The reason for the difference of opinion? Where we were seated. I was stuck...and I mean STUCK in the middle of the second row. When I looked forward, I saw a black column with a fire extinguisher on its side, completely blocking any forward vision and on either side were other passengers who, without meaning to, blocked my views with their persons and their cameras. The seat also had a metal frame over my head that forced me to slouch down (I am 5'9") in order that the headphones could be worn to hear Morgan, the pilot's, commentary. It was a miserable and uncomfortable 55 minutes That space should not be sold as a seat. Now, my husband was in the front, next to the pilot so he had a lot of space and was able to take good pictures. I saw the sights through these photos after the flight. The views I missed are amazing.
