    Excellent service from the team as weather meant we might miss out. Rearrangements made snd we were kept in the loop all the way. Excellent safety briefings from lovely staff. The flight was absolutely fantastic with Matt being very friendly and knowledgeable. Landed on a flat area for the most amazing photos ever. Fantastic from start to finish.
