Awesome flight ! Couldn't expect more !

Very good activity ! Plane is brand new, professional safety requirements, pilots are awesome and friendly ! The flight above the volcano is just unbelievable !!! Couldn't expect more. Plus, the plane has its wings above the windows, providing excellent viewings and the fact that it is small (3seats only) means that if you're two, you'll have all the chances to be on a "private" scenic flight. Definitely would recommand this tour as it is one of the best we've made so far !

George=awesome, flight=amazing!

Not only was the scenery totally breathtaking flying out over the ocean, but our pilot George was awesome, telling us a lot of interesting facts and great sense of humour, he was so good we gave him a crayfish as a tip! Hope you enjoyed it :)
