Was amazing, enjoyed the trip would be nice to go a little closer to Versailles and the Eiffel tower. Enjoyed the great views of Paris
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. .
Amazing! Whole experience was good from start to finish. Warm welcome from the staff. Pilot greeted us personally, and spend time chatting. Views over Paris were great and pilot pointed out the landmarks. Would recommend. Opportunity to purchase video if required.

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.
We went to the heliport but the weather conditions didn't allow the helicopter to take off therefore the ride was cancelled. Would love to do this whenever I get a chance again.. Kids loved looking at the helicopters and we took a couple of pics with them.
كنت أظن أن الرحلة تكون ممتعة أكثر من ذلك ولكن متعتها فقط هي تجربة الركوب على الهليكوبتر
Description of this tour is deceiving. Did not fly anywhere near the Eiffel Tower, got only close to Versailles. The one hour layover at the little airport at the little house was, as I understand a legal requirement, but was still boring. The flight itself was fun, but not what we were hoping for as far as sightseeing.
More of a helicopter joy flight it is certainly not a tour. If you and #39;ve never been in a helicopter then this may be perfect for you but you certainly don and #39;t get to see the Versailles castle and flying by the tower is more like flying back to the landing area. Great fun Pilot but hardly a tour of Paris.
Fun to ride in the helicopter but not a very good tour of the area. We did not get very close to any of the sights in Paris. Most of the pilot's comments were in French. Not much english. We had great difficulty getting into the secure area where the helicopter was located. We were finally able to get into the facility when two other people were leaving. We flew out to a little airport and took a 30 or 40 minute break for some reason then flew back to the helicopter airport. Probably not worth the money.
The trip should be re-named' Paris Misadventure'
The instructions to locate the entrance to the heliport were non-existent so that we were left to calling a gardener to let us into the Site having walked around the perimeter of the heliport TWICE!
The flight did not give a decent close up view of the Eiffel Tower nor the Versailles Palace or its Gardens. Yes, you could see them but that was very much in passing rather than any focusing on the things that the trip was sold on.
Landing in a windswept field and told that you had to wait an hour before being taken home was not a lot of fun and being given a cup of coffee in a glorified shed just about summed up what a complete and utter rip off the whole expensive trip was.
A great disappointment!
Apart from the staff being very friendly there is little I can recommend with regards to this Helicopter flight experience. The two key areas of disappointment were the fact that Viator advertised this experience as Enjoy a drink and photo opportunities during your 1-hour stopover near Versailles NEAR Versailles was certainly correct! In fact you go to the suburb of Versailles and sit at a helipad for an hour twiddling your thumbs with nothing to do. The drink was the choice of water, coffee, Minute maid or Orangina - not even a glass of wine or beer. The worst misadvertising of the product was however the Eiffel Tower flyover and image in the title of your description. The helicopter in fact did not go close to the Eiffel Tower at all and certainly did not include a flyover - hugely misleading advertising !
Flying in a helicopter was fabulous but we barely managed a glimpse of Versailles so were quite disappointed
Tour never happened! Helipass was closed since on the same day (8 May) we booked our tour, was a holiday in paris.No one from viator told us that they were closed and a tour was booked normally.Mails were sent to viator but no one answered.I presented a claim to my bank and waiting to get back my $$
