Thank you for the excellent 17 minute flight to the Burj Khalifa and other spots. The pilot was very informative talking and pointing out to us the places of interest and telling us all about them. The weather was excellent as the visibility was perfect and the pilot told us we was very lucky as we could see so much as it wasn't in the least bit hazzie. We arrive quite a bit earlier than we was booked for but was so lucky as we was asked if we would like to go up early at which we did BUT the BEST bit was we was sat in the front with the pilot. A BIG THANK YOU FOR AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

A treat for my grandson 17th birthday. Great flight, we opted for 17min ride. Seen all the sights of the local Dubai area. The captain was very informative, there was only four passengers flight did not feel cramped ( helicopter holds 6) if your in Dubai give it a go you will not be disappointed

You start right next to the "Atlantis" and you can easily take a taxi to the Heli-Platz. You have to be there minutes before and you will be weighed again. If you are lucky enough to sit in the front or on the right side of the window, you really get something and security becomes HUGE? written. If you are unlucky enough to sit in the middle back (our heli had a total of 6 passenger seats) it's not quite as good. The provider can't do anything about the fact that you sometimes have poor visibility at the temperatures. But this way you can really see the extent of the palm tree!
