I surprised my husband on our honeymoon with this Helicopter tour and luncheon, and it was absolutely incredible! Our pilot was extremely friendly and personable, the flight was exciting and beautiful, and the food at Tallavera Groves was one of the best meals either of us have ever had. The table we had overlooking the vineyard was picture-perfect as we had lunch, and we really enjoyed the wine tastings and ended up getting a bottle of Tawny. It's expensive, but this activity is well worth it!

We rate this experience very highly. Seeing Sydney from the air is a great way to get orientated.
Hunter Valley and restaurant were fantastic.
We were picked up early and easily. Staff along the way were very friendly and others we met were hilarious.
I would do this again and recommend this to others.

This was a fantastic experience. The pilot was great, the sites spectacular, and the meal and wine tasting with the view over the valley was something that will stay with me forever. At first glance you may think it's a lot of money but do it you'll love it. John, Carole and Michelle

Fantastic! Truly made our holiday exceptional. It was expensive but in our view was money well spent. Having a helicopter to ourselves was the ultimate in luxury. The food was amazing and the setting was spectacular. Do this trip - it is wonderful!
