5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Simply amazing! What a way to see London. The helicopter goes slowly long the Thames and back so there is plenty of time to see all of your favourite sights and take loads of photos. The pilot points out lots of landmarks, including the London Eye, St Pauls, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, the Shard and the London Eye. For a trip to London this is the ultimate way to see how the city fits together and see bit of London you didn't know existed!

Excelente passeio! Você vê Londres do alto, com uma visão inigualável! O Atendimento da empresa é ótimo, o piloto é fera, apesar de ter apenas 21 anos de idade. Chegar no local é muito fácil, mesmo de underground ou ônibus, apesar de ficar longe do centro. Este passeio realmente é ótimo, você não irá se arrepender!
