Great safe experience from start to finish. The explanations for the preparation of the flight on the ground are in English and understandable thanks to a video film. The 17-minute flight went well (the pilot made no comments to present the sites we were flying over personally, I prefer calm in the helmet). Attention, the helicopter has 6 seats (2 next to the pilot (exceptional view) and 4 at the rear side to side - only 2 out of 4 will be close to the window and will have a better view. The seats are made in relation to the weight of the passengers Bring your passport when you go to the flight counter with your reservation (this is explained after the reservation) To do for crazy shots.

I have no words to describe this experience. The team was very professional, put safety on first place. And then the view over The Palm and Atlantis was the best. Also we saw Burj Khalifa from the helicopter. We get the tickets in advance from Get Your Guide and everything went well.
