On arrival, board your private helicopter, a luxuriously appointed, twin-engine Bell 430 aircraft that seats six to eight passengers, including two pilots.

Anticipation mounts as you lift off and begin your flightseeing adventure, with the chance to witness marvelous views of this historical region and modern administrative center of Greece, surrounded on three sides by the sparkling Aegean Sea. Unfolding below will be vistas of Athens, the Acropolis, Lycabettus Hill, Cape Sounion, the Temple of Poseidon and the temporary home of your Crystal ship, the port at Piraeus.
