One of the most amazing experiences for me and my wife. Highly recommended.

Trip of a lifetime

What an amazing experience. It seemed a lot of money but I don't regret a penny. Pick up was on time, nice settling period at the airport. A moment of concern when I realised how small the helicopter was. It was just my husband and I on the trip so he had front seat and I was more than happy to sit behind. Take off was a bit scary, having never been in a helicopter before - you really get a sense of speed and height. We had two laps of the harbour before travelling up the coast towards the Hunter Valley. The pilot was brilliant, pointing out landmarks and answering questions. Felt like celebrities arriving for lunch. First class table and wonderful food with views over the vineyard valley. Ideallic. Brave enough for the front seat on return journey.

Yes, expensive but if you want to tick off the bucket list then this experience would be hard to beat. Beats 4 hrs in a stuffy bus!

This was the splurge of our trip to Sydney. Our ship did not get in early enough to do the bus trip to Hunter Valley, so we went for it. Grant, our pilot, was very friendly and helpful as he pointed out the sights and landmarks. We were flown to a winery where we were treated to a three course lunch and a bottle of wine. Delicious! We then went to the cellar for a tasting. Just the husband and me in the helicopter with the pilot it felt like a date on the Bachelor show. Our trip was on one of Sydneys hottest days and because of that and other circumstances we were late getting off the ground. Grant gave us extra time at the winery to compensate. A wonderful time!

The ride is fantastic and pilot is superb. Navigating across the terrain to the wineyard is pulchritudinous. The lunch is fantastic and its definitely worth it. And not to mention the wines, you can drink as much as you can......
