All I can say is wow!!! What an experience and the best way of seeing the sites of Sydney. We had a perfect clear day and had a pilot who provided a great narrative. The 20 minute flight was over in a flash but was unforgettable. We loved every minute of us. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel so the whole experience was hassle free.

The experience was lovely and exciting! They were kind enough to accommodate my schedule change. Got picked up near my accommodation, then was dropped off at the place where the helis are. Waited for our turn, and since I was traveling solo I got the front seat! How amazing to see everything from up above.

Really nice tour. Only complaint is it goes by too fast but that's not the company's fault : Our driver Lincoln was awesome.

Worth every single penny. Our trip was postponed to a different date since it was raining the day before. However please remember to book the timing and for the complimentary pick up time from the hotel.

Well looked after with good pick up. Very polite staff. Pilot was chatty and helpful. Views were amazing. We only had a short time in Sydney and so it was a great way to see the city and all it's little bays.

I love helicopter tours in most cities from high above and this tour of Sydney is no different. I was soooooo happy this tour wasn't canceled and enough folks were able to make it happen. Mitch the pilot was a awesome guy, very professional took us all around Sydney, along the coast and back down safely. They also offer a 21 minute video by USB which is a must to buy. The back camera on the helicopter is so cool and makes it look like a video game-lol. I love the experience and you should too if you decide to go for this tour!

Superb! First ever helicopter flight and could you choose a better place than Sydney? It happened to be a windy day in mid-August, and while it felt ok for most of the flight, I was feeling a bit sick towards the end in that sense, flight duration was more than perfect!. Nevertheless, the views are breathtaking and I took many photos. Definitely worth it!

Took a helicopter ride over Sydney. Well worth it. I would say way better value then the bridge climb. Very easy to do too as they pick you up from city centre hotels and drop you back so no hassle. Also very professional and ran smoothly. The sights from the air are just so different from being on the ground. Sydney in particular has such a beautiful setting with so much water. Highly recommend.

Both our driver Lincoln and our pilot Forset were superb, collecting us and giving us a terrific flight over Sydney and surrounding areas, the flight was extremely smooth as was the booking in and safety procedures prior to flying, then we were dropped of to a location of our choice, both myself and my wife highly recommend this tour and it should be placedv at the top of your list, its simply the best trip and the views breath taking you'll, regret not doing this tour

Fantastic.. excellent company and we would recommend using them. The pick up from the hotel was early with a real nice guy who chatted throughout.. the safety videos and airport base were very good and the trip was just fantastic..

This was a fantastic experience! We were lucky that we had a perfect days weather to fly over Sydney. The views from the helicopter are simply stunning and our pilot gave insightful pieces of commentary throughout the flight. The ground staff were all polite, friendly and very attentive. A special mention to Lincoln, who dropped me off in Central Sydney, after the flight even though I was staying at the Airport. Upon arrival you get tea/coffee/water and there is a nice waiting area. After the short safety briefing and video you can watch the other helicopters taking off and landing. You then get called through by the Loader when it is your turn to fly and whilst I was in a four seater helicopter, there are larger helicopters for bigger families or groups. There is plenty of time to take photographs to remember the tour. Upon returning you get a luxury mini bus drop-off back to your hotel in Central Sydney. I would highly recommend Sydney Heli-Tours for your flight over Sydney!

did the helicopter trip as a birthday present to myself! Could not recommend this trip any higher - absolutely fantastic! Everything done to a very professional level from start to finish. Great commentary by pilot and end of flight DVD available. Buy the DVD - great quality and a great momento at just A50. Don't miss the chance to do this one!
