It was a beautiful day to be up in the air but unfortunately we got the middle seats and although you could see it wasn't the same as being near the windows. The helicopter seated 6 including the pilot. It was interesting to see Melbourne from above. The pilot was quite good explaining what everything was. We are from Melbourne... More

We have taken many heli tours and found this one to be right at the top. Booking was a pleasure and staff on the ground was great. Pilot, John, was also great. We were short on time having stopped in Melbourne as part of a cruise but were bound and determined to see the 12 Apostles and the Great Ocean... More

Amazing staff at heli experiences made my first helicopter flight an unforgettable memory. My partner surprised me with the flight and the team helped keep me in the dark, making the experience even more special. Would highly recommend this company and hope people aren't disheartened by some of the reviews talking about rescheduling. They only reschedule if they think the... More

They will waste your time and money. Very poor customer service, probably the poorest ive experienced no one will answer you calls once you've paid and forget about rescheduling if they change the day. I'd go els where if you don't want to have a horrible experience!

An amazing way to visit the 12 Apostles and tour the Great Ocean Road especially if you do not have much time on your hands. The Great Ocean Road and 12 Apostles Tour takes about 4.5 hours from the pick up time at hotel till you are back to the hotel. The flight to 12 Apostles takes about 1.5 hours... More

I gave my husband and 15yo son the experience for their birthdays last year and the looks on their faces at the end of the flight was priceless. They had a fantastic time and the company was great! They had a spare seat so my 7yo daughter went as well - something she will never forget!

I had a 20 minute helicopter flight over Melbourne today for my birthday, it was brilliant! It honestly felt like a short five minutes but my GoPro footage shows the full time. Staff were fantastic from the get-go...the lounge area is comfortable and the staff/pilots efficient and informative. I've lived in Melbourne all my 58 years and never knew the... More
