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.

Very Professional...

The visibility sucked!!! You may wonder why I would rate the tour as “excellent” but say the flight wasn’t very good? The reason is, the staff did an excellent job, very professional and our pilot was tops...but...the weather, a sand storm, made visibility absolutely terrible....More
