"We took the fly-cruise-fly trip from Heliworks. There are other lot of cheaper options of doing similar trips on planes available and we were initially wondering whether paying the extra bit was worth it. IT certainly was.
The 3 amazing landings were breathtaking - which you couldn't do on a plane ride. We just took in the breathtaking views. Earnslaw Burn landing was the best part. Just an amazing trip delivered by a group of amazing people."
