Clear and interesting comments by a very nice operator. Very good pilot, no shake and sweet landing. You will feel safety above the mountains. A little more expensive than others company but you won't regret.

Thanks to Ben for a wonderful flight. Spectacular scenery and a great commentary from Ben. The children (6 and 3) loved seeing the glaciers so close up. A trip not to miss.

Looked at the weather and scheduled a last-minute flight with Ben. Had a wonderful flight over the glaciers and between the snow-covered peaks. Ben clearly enjoyed what he was doing and loved sharing the area with visitors.
