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.

Amazing and overwhelming experience! Second time doing this Helicopter tour, was even better this time. Pilot gave commentary the whole time and pointed out the main attractions and islands to be seen. Staff were friendly from the hotel pick-up to the experience, all was so well organised. Wonderful experience for friends and couples. Highly recommended to see Dubai from the Sky.

We loved our helicopter flight over Dubai. It was great to see the skyline from a different vantage point. And it's the best way to see Palm Jumeirah and The World islands. All of the staff were very professional and friendly. The whole experience was fun and thrilling.

Punctual pick up and very informative driver. Excellent service at the venue. Short briefing and then on to the helicopter. The pilot was good and quite chatty and funny. The 15 minutes went very quickly but plenty of photo opportunities along the coast and inland. Recommend highly.

Ticked this off my bucket list. Always wanted to go on a helicopter ride and Dubai was definately the best place to do it. The views are incredible and the pilot ensures to point out landmarks when flying past so you can take some great snaps. It's pricey but it's worth it!!!

I 100 recommend this tour. You have to bring lots of cashola if you want alot of pictures. but this is the best thing i did in UAE. I can't imagine what it'll be like once those new buildings are completed. Vitator is a guarantee of first class experiences world wide.
