What You Can Expect

Helicopter Flight in Dubai

See Dubai's impressive skyline from a helicopter!

After pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel to the Atlantis on the Palm Jumeirah to arrive at least 45 minutes before your flight start time.

Check in at the helipad and settle into the comfortable lounge. Sip on a complimentary soda, tea or coffee as you listen to a safety briefing, and when the time comes, meet your experienced pilot.

Hop inside the state-of-the-art helicopter and sit next to the pilot or in the row of four seats behind. Then, enjoy the views as your helicopter whirs skyward and flies high above Dubai and the Persian Gulf.

Soar over the coastline and drink in the sight of the Palm Jumeirah, the incredible Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al-Arab hotel. Hover above the golden beaches and azure waters of the gulf, and have your camera poised as your pilot points out particular high-rises and attractions.

Then, keep your camera ready as you head out over the sea to The World, the stunning man-made archipelago shaped to resemble a world map.

Gaze down at the 300 or so sandy islets below and identify the different countries and continents, such as Lebanon and Greenland, as your pilot tells you about their private and hotelier owners.

After your 15-minute flight, touch back down at the Atlantis helipad and end your helicopter tour with a hotel drop-off.

Alternatively, if you’ve upgraded to a 25-minute flight, enjoy an extra 10 minutes in the air. Fly over other areas of Dubai for bird’s-eye views of more of the city’s attractions. Then, return to the helipad and end your tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

I booked it online in UK, printed off the voucher and on the day of Helicopter ride, a car picked me just me, which was impressive up right on the time i was told, took me to heliport. The helicopter ride was amazing, the photo,s i took are great. When all over, after a short wait, the car took me back to Hotel. FANTASTIC.

Really organised, the pilot was very knowledgeable, explained to us what all the buildings were as well as a bit of history about Dubai. Wish we had a longer flight! I surprised my husband for our first wedding anniversary, it's definitely a great gift.

I wasn't sure how the outlook of Dubai at 3.00 pm would look in the heat haze, but was very happy with the flight. The helicopter was air-conditioned, the scenery was great and the pilot gave a us a great commentary and the courier gave me a great commentary during our trip to the lift off point.I just love Dubai.

Sensational experience. Pretty expensive for 15 minutes but definitely the best way to really see Dubai! Takeoff/ landing and flight was very smooth and good commentary on what you're looking at.

The highlight of the trip. Whilst it is expensive it was the only way you would get to see all the work completed on the islands. Great pilot and would recommend.
