At the meeting point there was no one from the said company Helikan, but they were able to help us there and they called someone. After 15 minutes of waiting, two very friendly employees came who immediately apologized because they allegedly had problems with their booking system. However, this made the tour perfect because we were alone and were allowed to move freely in the helicopter during the flight. All in all very recommendable
