People were really friendly, both in the communication planning the activity as well as in person. The entrance was a little hard to find but everything that I asked for had been taken care of! We did the 60 min flight and so we had ample time to fly around the bayou, downtown as well as uptown. Great pricing (in my view) as well, would def recommend it!

Excellent! Nick was our pilot and he was phenomenal. We were able to leave a little early so we got to catch so many beautiful views on a super clear day. It was easily one of the BEST experiences in my life and I can't wait to do it again when I come back to NOLA. Really incredible and the location was ideal for us! HIGHLY recommend, and this is coming from a New Yorker so you know it HAS to be a great time.

Great!!! Amazing tour of the city of New Orleans, the Mississippi River, and Lake Pontchartrain. Very knowledgeable history of the area including information about
the devastating carnage left by Hurricane Katrina. The pilot pointed out places we could visit that she thought we might enjoy while we are here, that was very helpful. We learned the history of some buildings which was very interesting. The Mississippi River was wider than I thought.

This is our first flight and it was so comfortable it was unreal. Loved it, plan on flying more.

This was one of my favorite things that I did in New Orleans. My best friend and I took a tour with Trent as our pilot. He made us feel safe and comfortable the entire flight. Everyone who works there is so knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend and get Trent as your pilot! He was the best!! :)
