Wir hatten einen Helicopterflug vom Golfplatz Avalon gebucht. Wir waren viel zu früh am Golfplatz und hatten dann das Glück, auf Siven zu treffen, der uns herumführte und uns so die Zeit des Wartens verkürzte. Beim Eintreffen des Helikopters war der Helfer sehr zuvorkommend und auch der Pilot war total nett. Beim Rundflug über die Südküste wurde uns vieles erklärt und es war ein unvergessliches Erlebnis. Vielen Dank. Jederzeit gerne wieder.
