"What an adventure! In a day filled with wonderful activities to celebrate our 1 year anniversary, my wife and I took an aerial tour of New Orleans via Cloud 9. The customer service on the part of the pilot, Wayne, was incredible - brilliant sense of humor, super kind, and very courteous. The ride was unbelievably smooth and afterward my wife and I both remarked that it felt like we were floating above the city without a care in the world. I would highly recommend this experience to others looking to see the city from a new perspective. "
