Such an incredible experience. Worth every penny. I thought I would have been nervous or a little scared, but it was so smooth and stable under your feet. We were in the sky for about an hour and this was during the winter months. Breakfast was a bag of snacks and a juice box. Super basic. Because it was winter, I have to mention, it was freezing. Almost unbearable and I was dressed for it. Wear your warmest clothes if it’s the winter time

10/10 experience! Ail Polat our pilot was fantastic and very talented at flying! I will take this experience away with me forever as one of the best

Atilla was great! Not as rushed as the green tour. So many cool things on this one! Lunch was nothing special though.

It was an amazing experience. On time fly and promised service.
