This was the best of all the tours we took. All the better for being in the winter as the snow and the ice on the lake really helped define everything. We would do this again at other locations.

Weather started as uncooperative. The pilot, Ryan, allowed the flexibility to wait for more of the fog to burn off. His knowledge of the city and its architectural history was amazing. The views from above the fog were amazing This excursion is highly recommended. The ride, take off and landing were so smooth that the though of being suspended in air never entered my mind.
