The Heli Tour was exceptional! I have never done it before and it was just fantastic! I went together with my son (24) and we were totally impressed. The 12 minutes ride is quite good to get an impression of Dubai and its highlights.

Beautiful 11 minute flight
LaShonda_L, Mar 2022
We had an amazing flight. The pilot pointed out all of the main attractions and told us some great facts about Dubai. The flight was smooth and we felt very safe.

The ride was extremely smooth and an incredible experience. Definitely we will experience the same trip in one year of God grants us the opportunity to see Dubai in 2023
Would do again
Andrew_J, Oct 2022
Easy process to get checked in, there is a van to take you to the building from the parking lot outside of the police academy. After a short safety video, you’re on your way! Great views of the palm and downtown Dubai.
This was fun!
Ashley_B, Aug 2022
This was so cool! Seeing all of Dubai at once, seeing the palm which we wouldn’t have seen without the helicopter ride was just amazing.

Must to do
Aleksandr_G, Sep 2021
One of the most fascinating experiences I have had in Dubai. Everything was just perfect, definitely wanna go on a flight next time I am here.
Amazing aerial views of Dubai !
Ciprian, May 2021
Seeing Dubai from the helicopter was an incredible experience ! We booked the 20-minute tour and it was plenty of time to go around and take pictures of the most impressive landmarks in the city (Atlantis the Palm, Burj Al Arab, Dubai Frame). We did not fly very close to the city center, but the Burk Khalifa was standing tall and visible throughout the whole trip. The organization and safety features were clearly explained to us before the trip. At the end, you have the option to purchase more photos and videos from the company.
Response from Host, May 2021
Thank you for the great feedback! We are happy that you had a great helicopter tour experience with us! We do not fly close to the center of the city due to airspace restrictions. But the distance gives everyone the best view of what Dubai looks like from the air! Hoping you will fly with us again soon!
Awesome experience

Philicia_M, Jan 2018
The employees did a great job with a brief safety instruction course and preparing us for the flight. Unfortunately, the day was very hazy and we were not able to get good photos. It was still a great way to see Dubai.

Helicopter Iconic Tour Dubai

The Heli Tour was exceptional! I have never done it before and it was just fantastic! I went together with my son (24) and we were totally impressed. The 12 minutes ride is quite good to get an impression of Dubai and its highlights.
Nasar_A, May 2019
I went on the 12 minute ride. I'm glad I did it my appointment was at 9 and ended up going to the other side of Dubai. It would help if the voucher would say the place as rining a dubai number would cost a arm and a leg if your from the UK. This place is the police academy in Dubai. Lucky I made it on time.
Well organized, worth the money
Andrei_C, Apr 2019
One of the more reasonably priced helicopter tours in Dubai. Very well organized and no time wasted - welcoming staff, quick safety briefing, minimal wait times, and certainly great views! Would definitely recommend.

Kenneth C, Mar 2018
The location is literally half a block from Souk Madinat Jumeirah. I arrived with plenty of time to spare. They offer complimentary coffee and tea. Their facility is air conditioned and has bathrooms for public use. You can walk outside and take pictures as the helicopters land and takeoff. You can take a camera with you on the flight. I was by myself with two couples, so they put me up front with the pilot. It was awesome getting pictures and videos from the front seat. There was a fair amount of dust over the city, but that is to be expected. The pilot was very nice and just made the flight that much more comfortable. It was a smooth takeoff and landing with no turbulence. I would suggest this to anyone wanting to getting a unique view of Dubai.
