The weather wasn’t great, but the experience was still fabulous! Loved the quirkiness of the harbour airport, and the ride itself was breathtaking. Amazing views, felt totally safe and comfortable, a very nice birthday treat :)

The Tour was amazing and the tour operator was very flexibel when we asked to reschedule due to the weather.

Great experience. About 20 min long. 10 passenger plane. Over all scenic. Exactly what you would expect.

Great experience! Nice way to see Vancouver! From the air :)
