Throughout the flight your pilot will provide you with informative commentary via Bose voice activated headsets allowing you to talk with the pilot and your other passengers whilst on the helicopter.
Wonderful way to see all that Sydney has to offer!
Fantastic experience and the view was so nice.
The reason I have voted 'good, but not great' is because I had booked my flight over Sydney Harbour for 11 a.m. but I was collected from my hotel at 9.10 and was air-born before 10. It was raining and cloudy over the harbour so photos were not the best. By 11 a.m., when I should have gone up - you've guessed it - sunshine and blue skies! I was very disappointed because a previous trip I had booked with Viator, over Uluru and Kata Tjuta, was excellent. I had booked and paid for the flight four months previously so it wasn't a last minute booking. The pilot said he had to wait for a slot but there were others waiting to fly at my pre-selected time.
Really nice tour. Only complaint is it goes by too fast but that's not the company's fault : Our driver Lincoln was awesome.
