Great experience, going over land, sea, and air. Very fun, informative, and interactive guide (Richard) Would definitely recommend Description: Met at the meeting point, walked around the attractions with the guide explaining them. Then to the boat, tour around the city with the guide explaining the visible landmarks, and then to the helicopter(co-pilot seat is the best)

If you want to let yourself drift and experience the city in a way you don't usually do, this land, air and water event is just the thing for you. She made us very happy.
