        Beautiful views from above!
        This helitour was one of my bucket list items and I'm so glad I went with this company. Service was unmatched (shout-out to Peter!), pilot's instructions and in-flight narrative was superb and I'm at a loss of words for the views. Tour day was beautifully clear and everything was excellent. 100% recommended!

        Exciting and wonderful ride, with excellent professional staff
        It was our last day in Sydney after a fabulous holiday from the UK. This ride was the icing on the cake, a wonderful way to see Sydney from the skies and say goodbye. The staff were professional, friendly and understanding, with pick up and drop off at our hotel at the end as the heavens opened after we landed. We felt very safe at all times. We were blessed and very lucky to be able to enjoy the last flight that day. A fantastic experience, would highly recommend. Many thanks!

        Highly recommended! Can’t wait to do another one!
        Highly recommended! Fantastic views with friendly and informative pilot and picked up by lovely driver to take us to the airport. Definitely planning to do more helicopter trips with them when we’re next back in Sydney.

        Impossibly perfect helicopter ride
        When I went on this flight, I was 65 years old and had never flown in a helicopter in my life. Boy, did I ever pick a perfect first flight. The weather conditions were ideal, I got the front seat next to the pilot and I had a great phone camera and came away with amazing shots and video. I cannot recommend this enough - even the cost is incredibly less than I would have guessed. Sydney Harbor has to be one of the top 3 places in the world to have a helicopter ride. I will go again when I next reurn to Sydney. And Yhe pilot was excellent (not sure I can give names).

        Great way to see Sydney from above
        I did the private helicopter tour with my two children. Captain Steve and the grown crew were professional and kind. After a direct safety briefing, Ellen (sorry, sp) showed the kids the map and some of the cool pictures. We then safely boarded the helicopter with their help and were off towards Sydney. We were able to get very close to the Harbor Bridge, the Sydney Opera House and Bondi Beach. It was so beautiful, thrilling and safe. I highly recommend it as a Top 5 experience in Sydney. Exceptional way to view Sydney from above.

        Great experience, pilot had well good knowledge of Sydney Australia. Do recommend Heiltours for your experience.
        Great experience on the helicopter ride. But got rescheduled for a different time over booked. Because Trip advisor didn’t have the updated times.

        Wonderful tour!
        Best way to see Sydney sites and harbour! Trip began at Sydney heliport flying 1000’ above land and harbour. Tour went all around Sydney harbour, CBD and out to beaches to see Manly, Bondi and coastline and back to heliport.

        Fabulous trip
        Fabulous experience. Such a smooth enjoyable safe flight. In my opinion, this is way better than the Sydney Bridge Climb. Cheaper and you get to see a lot more. Our pilot gave an excellent commentary. Wish I could add photos but Trip Advisor will not allow them.

        Fabulous experience
        A fabulous way to see the Sydney Bridge, Opera House, Bondi Beach and so much more. Trip was so smooth and enjoyable. Our pilot was excellent with all the information provided. Personally, I would do this rather than the Sydney Bridge Climb. Better value and better views. I liked the free return shuttle to Circular Quay area

        A must do for Sydney
        Stunning flight, very professionally run, from pick-up to drop-off. A unique perspective of Sydney, and way better than any of the cruises. Great pilot and support team. Very friendly and accommodating.

      What an amazing experience. It seemed a lot of money but I don't regret a penny. Pick up was on time, nice settling period at the airport. A moment of concern when I realised how small the helicopter was. It was just my husband and I on the trip so he had front seat and I was more than happy to sit behind. Take off was a bit scary, having never been in a helicopter before - you really get a sense of speed and height. We had two laps of the harbour before travelling up the coast towards the Hunter Valley. The pilot was brilliant, pointing out landmarks and answering questions. Felt like celebrities arriving for lunch. First class table and wonderful food with views over the vineyard valley. Ideallic. Brave enough for the front seat on return journey.

      Yes, expensive but if you want to tick off the bucket list then this experience would be hard to beat. Beats 4 hrs in a stuffy bus!

      Really great staff and service. Efficient and helpful. Beautiful tour as well. Helicopter was well-maintained. Our pilot also did well in explaining the sights around Sydney before we landed.
