Highly recommend this experience. Both Steve and Mark were experienced, knowledgeable, funny and informative. Being able to fly over the city is a unique experience you won't get anywhere else, due to air space rules. Expensive but well worth saving up. And for your friends who tell you it is dangerous, tell them unless they have done it, they can't comment! We plan to save up and do the Yarra Valley one next time, as we loved the whole experience so much!
