Viewing Dubai’s skyscrapers from below is one thing, but from the air, the skyline really takes shape. This shared helicopter trip is an affordable way to fly and see the city's no-holds-barred architecture from above. You’ll take in Palm Jumeirah, the World islands, and Burj Khalifa, and admire aerial views of the tower-lined coast. Hotel transfers and choice of flight durations and departures provide convenience.

What to Expect

After pickup at your central Dubai hotel, you’ll travel to the Atlantis hotel on the Palm Jumeirah to arrive before your flight departure.

Check in at the helipad and enjoy a soda, tea, or coffee as you meet your pilot and get a safety briefing. Then, settle into the state-of-the-art helicopter, either next to the pilot or in one of the four seats behind, and take to the skies.

Fly over the Palm Jumeirah, and admire the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al-Arab as your pilot points out the landmarks. Then trace the coastline and soar above the map-shaped archipelago known as the World.

After about 15 minutes of flying, you’ll touch down at the Atlantis and end your experience with hotel drop-off. Alternatively, if you’ve chosen a 25-minute flight, hover over other areas of Dubai before landing at the helipad and finishing with a transfer to your hotel.

Utter disappointment

Tripadvisor cancelled my tour without advising me despite having made full payment. The agent who handled the tours is absolutely rude! What a disaster!

Dubai seen in a different way

Everything was very well organised, from the moment we were picked up from the hotel. We were briefed quickly in the departure lounge, given all the safety tips, the trip itself afterwards was breath taking. We chose flying time around the sunset so the light...More

A very happy birthday

I booked this whilst still in the UK as a surprise for my wife’s birthday and also because I knew my 8 year old son would also enjoy it. I was looking for something that didn’t take up the whole day, because I recognised the...More
