Dubai Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travellers
USD 176.00
2 travellers
Dubai has been seen by many, but not everyone has seen it from above. Ever wonder why The Palm is called The Palm? Or why the Burj Al Arab is labeled a 7-star hotel? Or maybe wonder how the world looks at The World Islands? Or imagine getting an up-close look at Burj Khalifa? These wonders are created for someone like you to enjoy and appreciate.

The city is rich in both natural and man-made creations that adorn the skyline and this beauty can be seen only from above. There is only one way to do this, take a helicopter tour! You are sure to have the most memorable and exciting aerial tour ever.
  • See Dubai from a helicopter, a perspective many visitors never experience
  • 360-degree views of the Burj Khalifa and more, plus full city panoramas
  • Take once-in-a-lifetime photos to show off when you’re home
  • Live commentary, plus choice of flight durations to suit your schedule
What to Expect
Book your preferred flight option and make your way to the designated departure location in Dubai. Check in, meet your pilot, and settle into your helicopter for your shared flight. Fasten the seatbelt on your leather seat and, after a safety briefing, enjoy the views as your helicopter takes to the skies. Depending on your chosen flight option, soar over Dubai landmarks such as the Burj Al Arab, Palm Jumeirah, Atlantis, Burj Khalifa, and The World islands—the artificial sandy islets designed in the shape of the world’s continents. Gaze down at Dubai’s beaches and other sights such as Dubai Creek and Dubai Canal, and soak up the aerial panoramas over the city skyline and coast. Your pilot will point out highlights via live commentary along the way. Your experience ends back at the helipad.

We opted for only the 12 minute flight and it wasn't the clearest of days, but it was still an excellent experience where you got to see many of Dubai's architectural highlights. We would highly recommend it.

Hello we did and it did not provide us with a time. It only said between 1pm-4pm. Will we be able to schedule a specific time since our flight will arrive at 1:30pm?
