    Helicopter flight over Sydney simply awesome in the best weather. Pick-up service and everything great on site ... Coffee / tea for free everything as it should be. The only drawback ... in the 21st century you will probably be able to hear the pilot's announcement in other languages ...

    This was a fantastic experience! Great organisation and perfect communication with HeliTours to arrange for flight before I left Sydney. Pickup and transfer back to city with very nice driver. And the highlight of course the flight with fantastic pilot Ilan who showed us the wonderful areas around Sydney from above and provided lots of information and stories. Perfect!
