It was great!

(Reviewed on 5/13/2015) -

"I had bought a pack bus+cruise+ helicopter tour. It was great! Unfortunately some buses are really old... Earphones do not still work... Comments in French are poor (we listen to more music than something else) What a pity!

"20 minutes is all I need to be amazed in this city. Seeing the city from above is wonderful! The pilot is very informative and friendly. He knows what he is doing, so you will never get nervous. I sure am going back!"

Fun companions

(Reviewed on 1/27/2015) -

"People in this tour are fun companions. From the 2 floor bus ride, this was my first time by the way, up to the observatory deck. Everything was great. But then it was the helicopter ride that beats it all. It was an amazing ride."
