We have taken around a dozen helicopter flights around the world and they all have been stunning. This one was no exception. We did the 30 minute tour to get us to the glacier. Worth every penny. Top notch ground staff and the pilot did a good job making sure both sides of the chopper had great views. Worth it!... More

Thank you for your kind words. Without a doubt one of the most important parts of the 30 minute tour is that both sides of the aircraft get that "up close and personal" view of the glacier. We have been told numerous times our flights meet or surpass those done in Hawaii, Niagara Falls, The Grand Canyon or Alaska. We... More

We had quite a long journey to get here so arrived early. No problem, they just arranged for a flight for us. Just two of us in the helicopter, it was incredible. We had only booked the 12 minute flight, wished we had booked for a longer flight. Thanks Eric, unforgettable experience

What a great way to see the rockies. We got the helicopter flight as part of a package of activities and it was a lot of fun. The pilot looked about 15 years old but knew what he was doing and was a very good source of information about everything we saw on the flight. Only complaint was that it... More

... from the moment we were collected from the Buffalo Mountain Lodge, Banff, by personal driver. The whole operation works well and there's an atmosphere of certain safety. We were lucky that our two fellow passengers were 'no shows' but the aircraft was ideal for a fantastic 30 minute flight high into the mountains above Banff and Canmore. With Mount... More

We took the 30 minute Mount Assiniboine trip on 15th July. From booking over the phone to arriving at the tour the service was easy and friendly. The lodge was very clean and the whole customer area was well maintained. The helicopter ride was fantastic. The pilot was very informative about the area and it was magical to see the... More

We took the 60 minute trip, which allows time to be set down high in the Rockies to explore the wilderness and enjoy the spectacular scenery in the remotest of locations. If you take this tour try to take an early flight, and pick a clear day when the views will be stunning. At almost 900 CAD it is expensive... More

The look on our two young daughters faces when we told them they were going on a helicopter ride was truly priceless! The mixed emotions of wonder, excitement and a bit of nerves made my heart swell. Our pilot, Leslie, was wonderful, and made our adventure even more special. Talking on the headphones was a fun highlight for our children... More

We went on the 30 minute tour this morning, it was fantastic!! Our pilot was very informative and knowledgeable. It was an added bonus that I got to sit in the front seat! My boyfriend is not a great flyer but really enjoyed this, the ride was very steady and felt very safe. Loved it!

We booked the 30 minute Mount Assiniboine tour to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed. The booking process set the stage for the overall efficient and friendly service throughout the experience. We were concerned about the weather the day of our tour, but were assured that the pilots were monitoring conditions and would advise us if flying was unsafe.... More
