Not up to expectation
26 June 2017
On arrival the experience was run from a vehicle, with registration at a picnic table. We were told flights were running on time but my flight took off an hour late. There was only one helicopter running but the pilot was affable. There was only a 'glimpse of London, with no time to spot major landmarks. On landing a photograph was produced with a request for £10. Since my experience should have included a glass of bubbly we went & enquired about it. I was told the staff would get me one but it took 10 minutes before I received a glass of poor quality fizz. Not worth what my husband paid.

Cautionary Note!!!
26 July 2015
This was bought as a birthday present for me and, yes I had a great time. The trip is advertised as "A GLIMPSE" of London, so as long as you understand this, have exceptional vision and know what your looking for, you'll be fine, otherwise enjoy the trip and the local scenery that the pilot points out. If you have bought a "Bubbbly" trip, make sure to mention this after your flight, as they certainly don't remind you. All in all, an enjoyable trip.

Barely seen London landmarks in the distance.
30 September 2014
As a previous review said: very cleverly put title for this experience! I would've thought we'd be flying a bit closer to the famous London landmarks, but all I could see was the O2, the London eye and I could just about make out the ghurkin building. (I've added 2 pictures, where you can just see the O2 and that was the closest we got to it!) Personally I don't think this experience was worth the amount of money my husband paid for it. I got this as a gift, a surprise, as I'd never flown in a helicopter before and wanted to do it sometime and I loved it! (other than the fact I didn't get to see what I expected to see, I've been closer to the London landmarks in a regular airplane flying from London city!) Also, we were supposed to be served champagne, but I never saw any! Not that I'm particularly bothered as I don't drink it anyway, but it's the principle! When we arrived it took me a little while to find where to go as there are a few other companies aswell and it's not particularly clear where Adventure 001 are situated. Overall, expect to get exactly what the title says: London skyline, minus the bubbly! I think there are some improvements to be made.

misleading description of what to expect
15 September 2014
At the aerodrome the people were lovely, ground crew and pilot were excellent and the aircraft was excellent. What disappointed me was that the initial blurb which made me buy had led me to believe that we would fly OVER London from Elstree to Greenwich, up the Thames and to Kew and then return. In fact the trip was over suburbs near the aerodrome and headed in the direction of London but turned back while still several miles away from the Thames. The nearest you got to "London" proper was seeing in the far distance the outline of large buildings in the City. It would have been better described as a 20 minute trip in a helicopter. End of.

Fab time
14 September 2014
I had a great time. I'd never been in a helicopter before so I didn't know what to expect. The ride was suprisingly smooth with great views. The pilot was friendly and even went past white hart lane twice so I could get a photo for my dad. It went really quickly so next time I'd book a longer trip.

Great Flight
29 August 2014
There were issues with trying to book a flight but eventually managed to book my flight. On the day, all the staff were really friendly and helpful and they tried to ensure that everyone on board had a great flight. I liked that fact that the flights were delayed a little to ensure that the flight was not marred by rainfall. I just loved the flight and was lucky enough to have the seat next to the pilot -it was fantastic!

Great Anniversary Gift
12 May 2014
We had this VIP helicopter flight bought for us as an Aniversary Gift from our children, we had a great time from the moment we checked in, the staff were friendly and informative and the flight itself was excellent, with great views wherever you looked. The website kept us informed of weather conditions before the event so we knew what was happening. there was also a telephone number to call to get the latest update if no access to the website
