Tour was short but showed us everything they said they would. Nice to have a lady pilot. Would haave liked to have had a little bit more information given during the trip, but still a very pleasant experience.

We recently did the scenic Seattle tour from Lake Union. Nice, rustic plane and a great friendly pilot. Commentary was a bit patchy but we were able to see all the sights. Well worth a try!

The plane is a low seaplane with a step up about 2-3 stairs (short) into the plane. She could sit in front as co-pilot. It's off a main road and a ramp to the area where the plane boards.
