What You Can Expect

Versailles Helicopter Tour from Paris

Helicopter Tour to Versailles from Paris

Make your way to the heliport in the 15th arrondissement of Paris to meet your pilot and begin your helicopter tour. Climb aboard the 6-person Ecureuil helicopter for a 1.5-hour tour over the city of Paris to Versailles.

Soar over the Seine River to see the Parc des Princes Stadium, Parc de St-Cloud and Longchamp Racecourse along the perimeter of the Bois de Boulogne. It only takes a short 15 minutes of flying to reach the city of Versailles, at which point you'll get a unique vantage point on one of the most famous sights in the entire country – the Palace of Versailles.

Your pilot lands the helicopter at an airfield in Saint-Cyr, where you'll have a chance to sip a complimentary drink, get some photographs of yourself in front of the helicopter and chat with your pilot about flying. The stopover outside Versailles lasts one hour – a mandatory duration under French law for all helicopter tours from Paris – and there is even a video you can watch about what it takes to fly helicopters while you relax.

The return trip to Paris takes 10 minutes, and the views include Trocadéro, Montparnasse, La Défense and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

In the case of bad weather, the flight may need to be rescheduled for an alternative date. Please book your flight for one of the first days of your stay in Paris in order to allow for possible rescheduling.

Amazing Helicopter ride. You get to see paris from the Air as well as Versailles. The pilot was very interesting and took his time to explain the various sites from the Air. .

5 stars isn't enough to rate this attraction. To see a city by helicopter is a must. Our pilot was fantastic as was the staff at the airport office. Might have been nice to see the tower from a closer distance but I suspect air safety regulations prevented this. Paris is a little security 'sensitive' still. Recommended

This trip is nothing short of fabulous! If you love planes, as I do, you will not want to miss flying over Paris in your own helicopter. The little airport where you land near Versailles is charming as well, with small planes taking off and landing as you sip your coffee, or tea. The pilot explained to us how helicopters are designed, and how they are used in filming to obtain those action shots we take so much for granted.. This was the most exciting part of my vacation to Paris. Don't miss it!

Helicopter ride was great. The directions need to be modified. Tells you what metro and exit but does not state which way to go on the street. Also, needs more direction when you need to turn onto street to the heliport. There are no instructions about calling to get in the gate. After exiting the Metro it was a little frustrating.
