Wonderful helicopter flight to the Yarra Valley. We booked a winery tour to multiple wineries in the Yarra Valley. Great views from the helicopter. The pilot was great. Very convenient landing at each winery. Lunch was to a very high standard. Wine tasting was very nice. Even brought back a few bottles of our favorites. Can’t fault the tour. Highly recommend. Best helicopter wine tour we've been on.
