    Such an incredible experience

    Such an incredible experience! I booked this as a surprise gift for my partners 30th birthday and it was perfect. Our pilot Ed was attentive and friendly, and we had an amazing lunch at Zonzo’s estate. A fantastic day and would definitely recommend.

    Unforgettable!

    Our adventure with Ed was absolutely incredible!! We flew to Zonzo estate for a decadent lunch then on to St Hubert’s for dessert. The views of the city on the way back from the wineries was stunning- seeing the bay from above was truly something else. Highly recommend for anyone wanting an unforgettable experience and Ed was the perfect host and pilot.
