We chose a beautiful sunny day for a fantastic helicopter flight oner the Rockies. Spectacular scenery with a very knowledgeable and informative pilot. Alpine Helicopters run a very efficient operation. The only downside was the way we, the paying customers, were made to feel by the staff member who handled the briefing and the seating arrangement. Instead of adding to... More

What a day, I had been looking forward to this for some time but my wife was petrified at the thought of it. We went on the 15th Sept and could not have wished for a better day, clear blue skies and no wind, we were picked on time and taken to the heliport and shown a short safety film,... More

To be honest this isn't something that i would have done for myself, but I had a friend visiting and we didn't have time to drive unto the Glacier Skywalk. I've been up in helicopter probably more than a couple of dozen times, so i hadn't really thought of doing this tour. I had booked the Marvel Pass tour for... More

A ride in a helicopter is always a magical experience. It feels so effortless as the helicopter lifts gently off the ground and into the air. We went on a sunday and it ended up being an incredible day. Blue skies, warm sun - followed by flying right next to the sides of mountains, watching mountain goats laze around at... More

I was ambivalent about doing this--a bit nervous and afraid of airsickness. I absolutely loved it. I took my father for his birthday on the 30-minute Assiniboine tour. The view is spectacular and thrilling. We both said it was by far the best thing we did in the Rockies. So many thanks to Paul, our pilot,for making my Dad's birthday... More

The crew were very safety conscience and friendly. They did everything they could to give you the very best experience. The views were spectacular. You come away with a different feeling and respect for the mountains. This was my first helicopter ride and I'm ready to do it again!

For our honeymoon I surprised my husband (and myself - I'm afraid of heights!) with a helicopter adventure. The ride was fun and exciting and the staff were wonderful. We thought our flight would consist of passing by the 3 sisters mountain range and making a turn to come back, but we got so much more for our money. Not... More

Hi What a great way to see the Rockies. I booked through Banfftours/ discover Banff and requested forward facing seats. I have done a few helicopter flights in Oz and the USA so knew this was important for me. The cost included transfers from our Banff hotel. The driver introduced himself as Mike from Canmore, my friend from Vancouver thought... More
