Rated 5 out of 5 by Helicopter Flight We were given this flight as a gift so I cannot comment as to it's value for money except to say it was a fabulous experience. We picked a perfect warm sunny Melbourne day which we think enhanced the experience. The staff were very friendly and informative. My husband is not a fan of light aeroplanes and was extremely nervous and apprehensive but he need not have been. The trip took in Port Melbourne, the whole dock area, Albert Park Lake, The Shrine, Government House, the MCG, the CBD, Melbourne Cemetery, Carlton and the city surrounds. My only negative about this was that I sat in the back, behind the pilot. In two circuits of the CBD I didn't get a view at all. The pilot said he would do a once around with the city out to the left of the helicopter, then another with the city on the right. This would mean I could get a great view. However, on the second go around he did the same thing- city out the left, and I missed out whereas everyone else saw it twice. This was really disappointing for me. However, we really loved the whole experience. 12 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Heli trip over Melbourne 1st class Excellent service from the time you met in the lounge to the time you landed again. Friendly staff and a knowledgable pilot who took time to tell you where the various landmarks were. Thanks to our pilot and the rest of the team who made the day special for me. Hope to be able to do a longer flight next time. 11 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellant Was just not long enough, needed to go further afield. eg: along the coast and then inland on the way back and then do a loop of the city. 7 May 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by absolutely amazing, loved every minute of it From the moment I arrived to the end of my flight it was an amazing experience. The staff are very professional and friendly. Great views of the city and you fly high enough to get a good look around but not to high were you cannot recongise landmarks etc. Would definitely do it again and I haven't stopped telling friend and family about it. 1 May 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful experience to see Melbourne from a different perspective Well organised. Staff informative. PIlot very pleasant and well versed. Beautiful day, sunny and clear. Had a very clear view of everything particularly sitting in the front seat. Never had a feel for shape or size of Albert Park Lake, now I do, in the shape of a "logie". Magnificent view bayside, Could see Members of MCC queing for AFL game. Saw where I work. Everything about the experience was awesome. Would hightly recommend it. This was a gift to my Husband and Myself, for a special birthday. Thank you, 27 April 2013
