My husband has been in a helicopter before, it was my first time. The pilot had great knowledge and he showed us what Vanuatu is all about, mountains, waterfalls, beaches and coves. An experience I will never forget.

We booked prior because we weren't there for long and wanted to fit as much in in our time. We paid directly to the helicopter pilot and he was great and even better he was from Melbourne
