The service provider(Renata) was the absolute best. I had a delay due to traffic and she was so reassuring even when I arrived so late, she waited for me and let me know they’d be there for us when we arrived. She was swift to communicate and respond to my queries, shared videos and pictures for my special occasion. I wish I could reiterate how much I appreciated this customer care plus how amazing it was to have a cool pilot. She was so professional and there was absolutely no hitch with the whole flight. We went so smoothly that we didn’t even feel a single bump. I honestly recommend and would do this a hundred time, with the same crew in different cities over the world. Thank you so much Valentina and Renata! A 7 star experience for sure!!!!!!

We had a terrific time on the water, it was our first time jet skiing as well and our guide was very professional and courteous to walk us through everything.
