'There are few things more thrilling than taking to the sky in a helicopter, soaring high with the whole world sprawled before you. What better way to see London? With the city below, spread out to the horizon like a toy town with millions of ant-like people scurrying around, iconic landmarks are sprinkled as far as the eye can see. Hover over Tower Bridge, stare down at St. Paul’s, come eye-to-eye with the tip of the Shard, the tallest building in Europe. An unforgettable experience.'
