"My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience thanks to Birds Eye View and Cloud 9 Living! As a first anniversary surprise I needed something special and memorable to wow my adventure junkie partner; needless to say this experience didn't disappoint! The pilot was professional, and informative and very personable, he gladly rebooked my flight with 2 days notice as I was concerned with the weather forecast. The pilot answered all of our questions and made this novice flyer extremely comfortable. The flight itself was breathtaking and we snapped pictures of the beautiful landscape throughout. This experience even included a free DVD of our flight! I highly recommend this experience and can't wait to fly with Birds View in the future!"
