We had a marval tour scheduled but cancelled due to smoke. The company was very forthright saving it would be a waste of time and money since the smoke was so bad. Sorry they lost the income. Will come back again and do it when clear.

Wow, a truly bucket list experience. Staff was great. Our weather was perfect. 25 minute tour was fantastic. A little pricy, but well worth the money to see the Rocky Mountains from this vantage point. Was a ride we will remember for years to come.

I was expecting this trip to be an amazing experience however words can not describe just how fantastic it was. I would recommend the full flight to anyone. There had been snow the day before and the rockies looked amazing.

This trip will take your breath away. The half our tour is by far your best value and you will see the back side of the mountains. It was so beautiful I couldn't even talk. I have taken this trip twice and seen the south and north mountain ranges. Both trips I will never forget. AMAZING and worth every $.... More

We enjoyed our very first helicopter ride in this attraction near Banff. It was sunny when we took off and we enjoyed great views until we hit some slight turbulence and rain--but that's to be expected in the mountains.

My wife and I took the 12-minute Three Sisters Peaks helitour and we were pleasantly surprised by the professionalism and quality of the operators and pilots. Not only did we make the most of our time (the flight seemed much longer than it actually was!), but we always felt safe and taken care of. We got lots of great photos... More

Highly recommended adventure when in Canmore. The staff is very professional and always ensures safety. The 30 min trip we took was fantastic - great views with helpful information provided by our pilot. Yes it is expensive but absolutely worth the money.

We had the privilege of a 30 minute trip with these guys last week, it was fantastic. Our last helicopter trip was over the Grand Canyon, this one was way better. The whole team are friendly, helpful and professional. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The views on the trip were unbelievable.

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
