    Our first flight was cancelled due to smokey haze from bushfires and it was rescheduled for day after and that was right choice and decision. Pilot and staff are very friendly and they will explain everything before the flight. During the flight, pilot explained where are we exactly and where are we heading. We went across famous locations, such as Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge, Taronga Zoo and we flew near the Bondi Beach at 500ft altitude. I recommend this to everyone who visits Sydney!

    Sydney Helitours provided a great experience for us! The staff were friendly and welcoming; the helicopter was comfortable; and the pilot was knowledgeable and interacted well with us and our 10 year old son. The terminal was comfortable to wait for our flight and the pre flight information was clear and concise. We ended up arriving well before our flight and they accommodated us by bringing our flight forward. The flight itself was magnificent, with excellent views and great photo opportunities. We're definitely keen to fly again!
