It is the number of seats that the group occupies rather than the age we are looking at, A Child will need it's own seat, Therefore will not be any discount for him/her.

Is it ok if we delay a little bit?
The time mentioned on the confirmation is the TAKE OFF TIME. If your flight starts from outside an Airport you are obliged to be at the helicopter at least 10 minutes before take off time. If your flight starts from an Airport you are obliged to be at the Airport at least 20 minutes before take off time. Due to the tight schedule (especially during summer) you need to be on time! In case of no-show-up on time the rights for the flight expire and there is no further right of a refund or any compensation.
Where will we meet you?
Actually we will meet you, our driver will meet you at the specified meeting point that we agreed through emails if required and will drive you to our helicopter in Santorini
Will our Flight last the time we've booked?
Yes! Most operators start to calculate the flight time from start up the engine until shut down the engine. (Called block-time) This takes on avarage around 10 minutes so a 30 minutes tour would be effectively 20 minutes flying time. If you book a tour with us you can be sure that the flight time is calculated from take-off until landing!
