A wonderful experience. Our pilot Steve was exceptional. Informative, calm, funny and went above and beyond during our trip. Absolutely loved it. It's a beautiful thing to do.

Absolutely loved it! Although it’s costly, it’s a once in a lifetime experience. Well worth it. I was expecting to be scared, but absolutely not! The height wasn’t an issue. It was so gentle and peaceful. Highly rate. Would definitely do it again in another location.
