Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We started our trip from heliDubai and flew over Dubai. Took 15 mins ride and it took us over Atlantis, media city, islands, Hessa , burj Khalifa , skyline and MOE.
Very well organised, everything went great. Worth the price and time. Must do if you are visiting Dubai. Helicopter had enough sitting for 4 pupil at back and 1 on front with pilot. You can book different packages for different prices. Check out photos for more and my instagram @mumoftwobubs for reel coverage.

Having completed all of the protocols required we had a short wait for our flight. The helicopter was in pristine condition and entry and exit to the helicopter was professionally done. The 30 minute flight was a great way to see Dubai. Excellent commentary from our pilot.

It was an amazing experience I will remember it for ever 😍 I took the 12 minutes ride and you can choose longer duration if you like. There are different packages you can choose from. We flew over the burj Al Arab , the palm and near Burj Khalifeh 😍 the views were stunning 😍 especially the one over the palm was just wowww
I highly recommend it

I booked a helicopter tour as a gift for a member of my party’s 50th birthday, in mid February.

A few days ago I received an email saying that the tour was now canceled as the helipad was being used for a government event. Fair enough, I thought, these things happen.

I was also advised that to get a refund I had to complete a form and send it back to the company, rather than them just simply processing a refund as they had cancelled on me.

i was advised that a refund would take between 15-20 working days. I feel that this is not acceptable as firstly the trip is expensive, and secondly the company cancelled on me!

A few days later I received another email to say that there was a chance that now the helipad may be able to be used after all, and that they would let me know as soon as possible.

I asked how long it would be before they could confirm and was told it would be 6th Feb at the earliest - only one week before the scheduled flight!

I feel that the fact that I have been having to chase the refund, the amount of time to process it, along with the lack of clarity around the whole booking is wholly unacceptable.

I would definitely advise to look for alternative options rather than use this company.

I purchased two Groupon vouchers for the 12 minute flight experience for a Christmas present in December.

I contacted the company to book our flights and management would not accept the vouchers despite the expiry date being at the end of March.

They recommended that I contact Groupon for a refund. Groupon are only able to give credit rather than a cash refund.

The company continued to refuse to honor their contract. AVOID AVOID AVOID!

World's tallest building, World's expensive hotel, World's largest Flyer, World's largest Man-Made Island - What is the better way of viewing all these at a time other than Aerial View.

Helicopter ride in Dubai is one of the must do's in Dubai. Try it and you will never forget the experience. Another remarkable experience of it is being able to explore Atlantis The Palm completely and taking-off from its helipad.

Atlantis The Palm is undoubtedly an epitome of beauty and one of the finest hotels in the world.

Also, we were taken on a ride with one of the best pilots of the world who possessed CPL from 7 countries. Beautiful memory that will be cherished throughout my life.

To summarize in a word : awful.

I have been assigned the middle seat at the rear and I wasn’t able to see anything. People who were sitting on the window seat were taking pictures during the whole flight so I couldn’t see much. I wouldn’t recommend this especially for the price. I thought that with COVID measures they would limit the amount of people during the flight but nothing.

My mate gave me a 12 minute helicopter flight for my birthday. After the briefing the instructor we had gave us a free upgrade for 17 minutes flight as I was celebrating my birthday. They gave us a surprise on top of my surprise. We were so happy and excited. As well the flight was amazing and we really enjoyed every second of it. The price is really worth it. If you are a REAL Dubai lover you should really try this and explore the city from above. You won’t be disappointed at all. The staff is really friendly and attentive. They gave us one of the best day of our lives. If we ever get the chance we will definitely choose HeliDubai again!!! What a wonderful memory that we will keep in our memory for the rest of our lives. Thank you 10000000000 times friends. Greetz and much love from Susana and Mira ;-)

A truly professional outfit. We had a 17 min tour over Dubai & it truly was the highlight of our 3 night stay . We felt safe & looked after from the start to the end of the tour. You just get to see so much in such a short time 👌👌👌 thank you
