Our guide Eric was very helpful and we enjoyed the pilot’s information and the flight went flawlessly! The group was very lively especially after a little champagne so it was fun and there were abundant snacks. Enjoyed very much!

The experience exceeded all expectations. Staff had relaxed manner but their high level of professionalism left the whole party comfortable and secure. The camaraderie of the group was re-enforced by the lovely breakfast, quality champagne, and jovial staff. Thanks to the blokes!

Just wanted to personally say thank you for the flight, it was an amazing experience. I will definitely be telling all my friends they need to give it a go. Also, the guys were hilarious and made for extra entertainment value! Thanks again. www.greatsouthernrail.com.au
