Very good activity. We had Champagne as soon as we arrived and were able to drink during the flight. The flight was amazing. We flew over all of Miami then the sea and then back to Miami with the pilot who was giving us the aerial tour of the site! A real joy. Small bonus I had chosen the 7 p.m. schedule and so we could see the sunset from the sky! To do again. The only constraint is the trip from the hotel to the site at our expense and difficult at peak times.

Excellent tour! Josè was super friendly, very informative and a pleasure to listen to! We wondered around the city, we could have not seen so much in one day without this tour! Down side: the boat tour. Too touristic, too crowded and not so enjoyable!

The staff is welcoming a half hour experience above miami with explanations to find your way around the first time in a helicopter great feeling

Me comprometí con mi novia en el vuelo y todo fue Excelente, el piloto y el equipo fue super amable. Super recomendado.
