It's a great and unforgettable experience, even if 12 minutes go by quickly and you don't really see much of the city. But the main sights are there. Helidubai is easily accessible by metro (red line). Stop at the mall of the Emirates and as an exit not to the mall but to the other side of the multi-lane street. Then you walk for a good 10 minutes. We were out in the afternoon, so the path was in the shade. The shuttle service to the Helidubai building worked great. The staff there very friendly and helpful. The safety briefing was well done.

Super cool experience! An absolute must do when you are in Dubai. We were dropped off by the taxi at the Police Academy & then a van was already waiting for us to take us to the location. Then the passports were checked, the passengers weighed and a safety film was shown. Then it was time for us to take to the air and it was great! The 12min tour is more than enough to see the highlights of Dubai. We flew past the Burj Al Arab, Jumeirah towers & the Palm Jumeirah. We also got to see the Burj Khalifa. The view was amazing! The pilot told a lot about the various buildings which was very nice and interesting. I had already given this helicopter flight as a birthday present to my partner & although he was not in the middle (determined by weight) he enjoyed this experience. Highly recommended!

Fun afternoon- felt very safe the safety checks were good. Loved the flight and the views of the palm were amazing. The only negative was the price of the photos at at the end - approx £40 for one photo is pretty expensive I thought. If you did the whole package on the data stick it was approx £135! Other than that the trip was great value and a brilliant experience
