5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

It was great!! The pilot was so friendly and did such a good job of pointing things around the tour. I will definitely do it again. Wish I could afford to stay up at least 30 minutes!!

I booked this event for my step-son's birthday! He and his dad had a great time! Katie was their pilot and she was very professional, yet friendly and engaging! I would highly recommend this. The only downside was that it only lasted for 10 minutes, I thought it would be a bit longer, but my husband said that he thought it was reasonable!
