“Gyrocopter flight from Rochester”

Written on: 16/10/2018 by Rory1973 (1 review written)

My sister and I got this as a gift for our Dad's 70th birthday. It was a 60 minute 'Silver' Gyrocopter flight from Rochester airport and he absolutely loved it :-) I came along to watch and had a great day myself, it is a fascinating aircraft and the instructor, Kai, was excellent. He was easy going, reassuring, professional, and happy to answer all questions - he really knows his stuff. He also has a good knowledge of the local area and points of interest when up in the air. The wind that day… Read Full Review

“Spitfire Flight & Experience”

Written on: 05/10/2018 by IanWest (1 review written)

This was the experience of a lifetime - outstanding in every respect! The entire occasion was faultless. Before the flight, instructions and support from the ladies in the 'front office' were superb. The welcome briefings were concise and well delivered. The hangar tour and briefing was fascinating It was delivered with passion and filled with anecdotes by a young man who clearly knew his facts. The historical artefacts were perfectly presented and accessible. And then the Spitfire… Read Full Review

“ love Spitfires!”

Written on: 03/07/2018 by Gospelnige (1 review written)

An infectious enthusiasm added to an historical and modern love of Spitfires by our outstanding tour guide contributed to a day at RAF Biggin Hill Heritage Hanger my wife and I will never forget. Having an interest in World War 2 already, both sombre and romantic, seeing the Spitfires and learning about them and their pilot and engineering background stories in contex, simply sped us into the mess awaiting "scramble". Sitting in the cockpit almost drove me to tears thinking of those brave men… Read Full Review

“Great experience but needs updating”

Written on: 12/06/2018 by 60Puckett (1 review written)

I took the 60 minute F16 fighter sim session. I must say I was a little apprehensive when I arrived at the venue as it is on an old industrial site. However, I was made extremely welcome by the staff who explained everything regarding the experience I was about to participate in. The simulator's cockpit realism was excellent but the graphics need to be updated to high definition and 3D to give a fully immersive experience… Read Full Review

“Military Vehicle Experience - Bournemouth”

Written on: 16/04/2018 by cathy1965 (1 review written)

This looked a good experience for both my son and husband to celebrate a birthday; I paid twice so they could both have a driving experience. They got to drive the same two vehicles .... although not the opportunity to see the others mentioned in the description which was a little disappointing. I was under the impression that they would be able to look at the other vehicles and maybe choose which one they would like to drive - this is probably my mistake, and is not what happens. The two… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service with a smile”

Written on: 03/12/2017 by boo3 (1 review written)

I ordered 8 variable vouchers as Christmas gifts on a Saturday evening and received them on Tuesday morning such prompt service. I also had cause to ring the customer service helpline for a query and the staff member who answered the telephone were unfailingly helpful, polite and friendly to probably the stupidest customer they have ever had. Thank-you to all the staff at Into The Blue, I shall certainly use your services again. … Read Full Review

“Hidden charges and incomprehensible booking procedures... ”

Written on: 27/09/2017 by regnodulous (1 review written)

A friend of mine bought me two driving experiences for my birthday. When I tried to book them I was told they only operated up north about 6 hours away from me. When I pointed out they had local locations listed they explained I could change my experiences to go with another supplier who could provide similar experiences closer to me. The friends who had booked this for me had no knowledge they were signing up for a particular location and were as confused as I was. What followed was an… Read Full Review

“60 minutes Flying Experience ”

Written on: 11/09/2017 by Diluma2002 (1 review written)

I bought the voucher for my husbands birthday and tried to call the company called Starsfly to book the date as in to the blue stated after the registration. I have called at least 30 times and left messages after messages asking them to call me back. I have never received a call from them. Then I have called In to the blue to complain and they said that they will send and email asking them to call me and she also said that they never had complains about this company and this is the first time… Read Full Review

“Brilliantly tailored experience”

Written on: 29/08/2017 by Janey-jane (2 reviews written)

This was my 2nd Into the Blue experience day and it was wonderful. I was given an Into the Blue e-voucher as a retirement gift and I choose the 4x4 experience at Coniston Hall for its location and because I love driving challenges. I spoke to lovely people each time I contacted Into the Blue to book my experience and the written confirmation I received from them was very nicely presented, so I can keep it with the photo's of the day. The experience itself was completely thrilling. Coniston… Read Full Review

“Excellent Service - Excellent Staff”

Written on: 20/07/2017 by MichelleNeal (1 review written)

Booked an experience for my husbands birthday. Unfortunately I got a bit confused and booked the wrong one originally. Received excellent service by email and phone and the staff bent over backwards to help me. They were fantastic. They helped me every step of the way and changed the experience to the one I really wanted. I wouldn't hesitate to book through them Into The Blue again. Great team, great customer service. My husband will be so excited on 27th August to experience the booking I… Read Full Review

“Excellent service Helpful and polite ”

Written on: 12/06/2017 by Helengray1 (1 review written)

I found the customer service impeccable. It is very rare to phone somewhere where the customer had made an error and the company go out of their way to to help and resolve the problem 100%. The telephone manner of the staff is second to none. Will be singing this companies praises for a long time to come. And will use again and again. … Read Full Review

“A bit disappointing...”

Written on: 01/06/2017

I did the skin training session at the Shropshire site. I agree with the other reviewers that the instructor was knowledgeable, but I really feel that for the money the experience could be a little more professional. Given the fact that it is relatively isolated I can imagine that anyone with less than a cast-iron bladder may struggle to cope with the lack of a loo. I appreciate that this is mentioned in the information, but I was still somewhat taken aback when I arrived - the site is… Read Full Review

“UNBEATABLE DAY”

Written on: 26/05/2017 by GLOBALS (1 review written)

The flight in a Spitfire is a must for everyone who loves this iconic aircraft. To be able to feel the power on takeoff and take control for a few minutes during the flight is wonderful. The whole experience is well managed and the whole team at Biggin Hill make it a day to remember. How many out there can say they have done a victory roll in a 'Spit'?… Read Full Review

“Customer service ”

Written on: 28/04/2017 by MattA71 (1 review written)

I made a purchase with this company but I had a few questions and had forgotten to add a personal note to the gift. Their customer service team replied instantly to all my queries and were exceptionally friendly and helpful. A credit to the company! If only other companies treated their customers this way the world would be a better place. Not only will I come back again but I will recommend them to anyone who would care to listen. I have had gift days from them before and they have… Read Full Review

“60 Minute Flying Lesson Over Norfolk”

Written on: 20/04/2017 by Nixt1 (1 review written)

I got this for my partner's birthday. It has always been his dream to fly a plane and we certainly weren't disappointed. The pilot, took plenty of time to explain everything to us, answer questions and also had a really good sense of humour. I was concerned that my partner wouldn't get enough time at the controls but I needn't have worried. This was definitely worth every penny and my partner is still talking about it now! There are lots of flight schools out there but Premier promised the… Read Full Review

“Dont bother!!”

Written on: 27/03/2017

My partner bought me a wingwalking experience worth £400. He was alittle unsure on the expiry dates and policies after checking the internet so phoned into the blue direct to confirm he could buy the voucher in august ready for my birthday in december. To our horror after being told by the customer services it would all be fine as the vouchers are valid for a year it expired in the september. So they allowed him to purchase a voucher on the 30th august but actually expired 3 days later on the… Read Full Review

Thank you very much for your review. I was thinking of buying a helicopter experience but would stay away from them.
