Very nice people, you feel in good hands and everything is explained clearly. You should have made the flight over Sydney when you are here. It's a completely different experience and perspective to see the city from above.

Sensational. Great company to deal with, all staff very helpful and courteous. And what a view, something not to be missed. Can't wait to be back in Sydney to do it again.

It was easy to book and pay. Communication was great. One suggestion: it would be nice to have transport service from city center and back.
