It's expensive of course. But worth doing. I was really impressed with Alpha Tours - highly quality operation. Overall recommended.
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.
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.

If you have the time when visiting Dubai I highly recommend taking a helicopter tour. To see Dubai from the air is nothing but spectacular. The pilot took us out to the water and then we flew parallel to all the high-rises where you get...More
