It was fun, the staff were very friendly and considerate. Unfortunately, the helicopter pilot didn't explain very much - at least not enough for my taste. You also have to consider whether the 12 minutes aren't enough for you, then with 17 minutes you don't see much more. If you are in Dubai and have the time, it is definitely worth the money as the view of the city from above is impressive.

The best experience in Dubai! We got a short briefing and then we started. The seats were distributed according to the weight on site. I sat by the window and had a great view. The pilot explained what we see and flew well up to the Khalifa in the 17 minutes. We had great views. It was awesome! Only the photos taken on site were usury, I didn't buy them. Visitors don't see Entry and Start.

Great scenic flight that includes all the sights between Palm Island, Downtown and the Marina. Time for photos, but also just to enjoy. Short explanations by the pilot in English, questions possible. Good service on site for the formalities. Helicopter is absolutely still in the air. Arriving at the event by taxi, approx. 30 minutes and 35 euros (one way) from the Port Rashid cruise terminal. Distant visibility is moderate as there is often a lot of haze in and around Dubai.
