Helicopter Tour – Dubai from above
How can you see Dubai better than from above? During this summer I decided to be a tourist for a day and booked a 20 minutes helicopter flight over Dubai.
And the good news is – it doesn’t have to be super expensive!
Voucher/discount websites such as groupon.ae and cobone.com get you deals with about 50% off the regular price. I paid AED 700 (USD 190).
It basically doesn’t matter through which tour operator you book your flight, because in most of the cases the same helicopter company manages the operations.
- Especially for flights over Dubai it is important that you check the weather forecast. You don’t want to do your tour on a hazy day or during sandstorms. This can really screw your experience. Ideally make your booking no longer than 2 days in advance.
- Avoid mornings, because during that time of the day, chances of low visibility are quite high.
- Read the terms and conditions of your booking confirmation. There are usually restrictions in terms of which camera gear you can use.
Check out the beautiful photos you can take on such flight! I haven’t used any filters to show you the “real” picture.
