Imagine my excitement when i was invited to experience one of the best helicopter rides in the UAE which gives you an aerial view of some of the best landmarks in Dubai!
Taking a helicopter tour of a city is a privilege that few get to enjoy. HeliDubai’s selection of thoughtfully designed aerial tours has been created to ensure an unforgettable experience for the whole family. From the internationally renowned Burj Khalifa and world famous Burj Al Arab to the spectacular The World and The Palm Jumeirah their aerial tours ensure a unique unobstructed view of Dubai in well-appointed helicopters. Taking off from Dubai Festival City you can choose from the 12-minute or the 22-minute tour. They also have tours ranging from 12 minutes upto 40 minutes.
Located near Dubai Festival City, you have to take the exit off Toys R Us.
As soon as we reached there, we had to present our id’s and we waited for about 5 minutes before we were ushered into a room where we were instructed on safety.
Then we hopped on to one of the most beautiful helicopters i have laid eyes on.
There were 4 of us seated in the back and one person in the front along with the captain.
It indeed was a ride to remember. The views were fantastic and we saw:
Burj Al Arab and Jumeirah Beach Hotel
Meydan Race Course and Business Bay District
Our ride was about 17 minutes. The take off and landing was smooth and our captain explained everything extremely well.
It makes for an exciting ride especially when you come visit Dubai or on a special occasion. You will truly remember it for a lifetime! It starts at about AED 695 per person. Just look at our happy faces 🙂 That’s my hubby and I.
Besides the scenic tours, you can also book them for Aerial filming and VIP transfers.
There are 4 Tours, 12mins Heritage Tour AED 595pp, 17mins Palm Tour AED 695pp, 22mins Explorer Tour AED 895pp and 40mins Adventure Tour AED 1,600 pp.
