Nardine was fantastic, and very knowledgable. Very helpful with my husband who had a mobility problem. This is a level three walk and not suitable for anyone with a hip or knee problem.There are seats along the way but the ground very uneven. My husband sat on a seat enjoying the view while I continued the walk.

This was my first ever helicopter flight and I took my three young sons. The guys where so accommodating of us all. The flight was fantastic lots of information given and the views where spectacular. Highly recommend. My hoys rated the pilot a 10/10 for landing in the centre of the helipad
