This was super fun and a great way to see the city. Never been in a float plane so that was interesting and the views were spectacular. If you have the opportunity I highly recommend it.

The Tour was amazing and the tour operator was very flexibel when we asked to reschedule due to the weather.

Great experience. About 20 min long. 10 passenger plane. Over all scenic. Exactly what you would expect.

Very good experience! Thank you pilot John! My kid loves it!
