The guide was very professional and his landing skills were superb. As for the tour, I did not enjoy it. There was no air conditioning and extremely hot. The aircraft battery was dead and the pilot had to run inside to get the cables to jump the battery. So we sat inside the aircraft sweating while patiently waiting. The aircraft was very old. I guess for my first aerial tour and the price I paid (over $300) I expected better views, AC and more comfort.


We asked to be taken over the Mississippi River, the bayous, and the tributaries off the Mississippi River which flow on to the Gulf. This was different than the usual sightseeing tour given by this company. Our flight was 60 minutes. Our pilot was awesome, knowledgeable, and explained what he was doing as well as explaining what we were seeing! It was a great experience and would do it again! The price was perfect! My husband and I would recommend this flight company!


Dylan was amazing and the experience was amazing. We enjoyed the tour and will recommend to our friends!


The whole trip was great. Katie was very knowledgeable and friendly. She made us feel very welcome and answered all of our questions.


My favorite part of the experience was the pilot! Lauren was AWESOME!!!! The sky view of the city was amazing. I highly recommend the New Orleans Sightseeing Flight! Definitely going again!


My family and I loved pilot Everett! He was an amazing pilot! We got to see New Orleans from the sky!

People were really friendly, both in the communication planning the activity as well as in person. The entrance was a little hard to find but everything that I asked for had been taken care of! We did the 60 min flight and so we had ample time to fly around the bayou, downtown as well as uptown. Great pricing (in my view) as well, would def recommend it!


It was really nice to say we was over New Orleans. Our pilot Nick was amazing! He was very informative and funny. He made the trip even better


Great!!! Amazing tour of the city of New Orleans, the Mississippi River, and Lake Pontchartrain. Very knowledgeable history of the area including information about the devastating carnage left by Hurricane Katrina. The pilot pointed out places we could visit that she thought we might enjoy while we are here, that was very helpful. We learned the history of some buildings which was very interesting. The Mississippi River was wider than I thought. This is our first flight and it was so comfortable it was unreal. Loved it, plan on flying more.
