Great day

Had a great time and I'd do it again. Weather was average at best and it was still worth it. Great commentary on the flight, super friendly. Tips: wear warm stuff for chopper and be ready to get wet on the boat. So fun!

Such an amazing experience!

Richard and Jolanda made this tour a truly memorable experience! The flight itself to Ben Nevis was incredible, complete with great photos and videos. In addition, Jolanda coordinated our jet boat trip and made everything easy.
