Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Make your way to the heliport in the 15th arrondissement of Paris where you are welcome by our friendly staff in French, English, or Chinese. Meet your pilot and begin your helicopter tour. Climb aboard the helicopter for the tour over the city of Paris to Versailles.

Soar over the Seine River to see the Parc des Princes Stadium, Parc de St-Cloud, and Longchamp Racecourse along the perimeter of the Bois de Boulogne. It doesn't take long to reach the city of Versailles, at which point you get a unique vantage point on one of the most famous sights in the entire country—the Palace of Versailles.

Your pilot lands the helicopter at an airfield in Saint-Cyr, where you have a chance to sip a complimentary drink, get some photographs of yourself in front of the helicopter, and chat with your pilot about flying. The stopover outside Versailles is mandatory duration under French law for all helicopter tours from Paris, and there is even a video you can watch about what it takes to fly helicopters while you relax.

The return trip to Paris includes views of Trocadéro, Montparnasse, La Défense and the Eiffel Tower in the distance.

In the case of bad weather, the flight may need to be rescheduled for an alternative date. Please book your flight for one of the first days of your stay in Paris in order to allow for possible rescheduling.

Robert s
, Jul 2018
Great views, of course that's expected. The tour itself was pretty bad. It literally felt like a bus ride from one area of town to the other. You would expect some commentary from the pilot as you flew past points of interest, instead it was a completely silent ride. they land at a small airfield next to a freeway in Versailles, take a few pictures with the pilot, walk you into a waiting room - and let you sit for an hour. the refreshing drinks are a bottled water or soda. The pilot had nothing to say, and either sat there in silence or, most of the time, was outside on his cell phone! The group just kind of sat there in uncomfortable silence. bored. once it was finally time to come back, same type of return trip. Zero commentary or guidance, silent ride back. we came back to the helipad, landed, were helped out of the helicopter and immediately to the exit gate and road. The entire group was kind of looking at each other like.. ok is this the end of the tour? there was no thanks, no customer service, literally dropped you on the street without a Thank You, or asking if we enjoyed our trip - nothing! Keep in mind, we had to arrange transportation to get to this tour - there were no taxis, no considerations by the tour company. we had to walk about 6 blocks or so and finally found a cab. i would not recommend this tour to anybody. They have a really really nice helicopter and a really crap business plan! I felt more taken care of during a bus ride than this 500 tour over Paris. Whats sad is they have the foundation for a really great experience but simply did not come close to execution. They could easily make this enjoyable with a little customer service and by creating an actual tour rather than a cab ride to an airstrip, an hour sitting session and then a ride back. so disappointing and wasted so much money on this .

The trip was amazing, the pilot was very nice and patient whilst we took about million pictures with the helicopter and over the flight itself was great with some little tricks. Stuff at the heliport was helpful and accommodating.

Tomislav L
, Apr 2017
This tour was big disappointment because helicopter flew nowhere near city center. Yes, it was said that we will have a distant view over Eiffel tower, but that distance was much, much bigger that one could assume on the base of photo that is shown. I do understand that because of security reasons, helicopter can't fly directly over the city center, but this was, as I said, much further than expected. View shown on a photo is not even close to what we actually saw. Even Versailles was very far from us. I think it would be fair to show pictures that give more precise feeling of actual view during the flight. This is a lesson for future: one should always ask for a flight route to be shown on map. I would rather recommend visit to Montparnasse Tower: here you have much better and closer aerial view over Paris, including Eiffel itself for an unlimited time and for much less money.

MELODY

Don't waste your money. The trip is essentially a 15 minute quick fly-over of the outskirts of Paris - literally 15 seconds over Versailles, and no time anywhere near the Eiffel Tower. After the first 15 minute hop, there is a landing on a grassy landing spot no helipad, and then a one hour do-nothing wait. The pilot and co-pilot who never conducted a guided tour or even pointed out Versailles as we quickly passed over pointed out a refrigerator with Cokes and a few wrapped cookies, by way of hospitality in the dark and ugly waiting room. After an hour of sitting around with our Cokes and nothing else, the pilot came in from his long cigarette break and informed us we were returning to the original helipad. Fifteen minutes later, we landed where we began. I have taken heli rides in Hawaii, New York, Las Vegas, etc., and this was the crudest, shortest and most ridiculous trip I've ever experienced. You can photograph the Eiffel Tower better from the ground - that's how far away and meaningless this trip was. Don't do it.

Not what we expected from the description. The standing around after get to Versailles area was left lacking in all respects. Hot coffee in a soft plastic cup, really??? We expected Champagne from the description, or at least a better vehicle for serving coffee. Would not recommend this, unfortunately. It was to be a special segment of the trip I had planned for my husband. This I will add, he got to sit up front on the return to Paris and that was one saving factor.

Don P
, Jan 2017
Very nice staff, however the trip itself left a lot to be desired. We have taken many city heli tours and I'd have to rate this one at the bottom. Too many flight restrictions in and around Paris. After a 15 minute flight they land you for 1 hour lay over, required by law, at a little 'club house' in the middle of some fields outside of Paris, don't bother.
