The helicopter tour was a little intimidating for me because I don't like heights. I felt very safe and trusted the company completely. It was a great experience and gives you a whole different way to appreciate the beautiful scenery. This was a great introduction to the Canadian Rockies and it only got better.

We went on this helicopter ride during our honeymoon trip. It's the first time we have been on a helicopter. The organisation and atmosphere before boarding was such that it was very relaxed. You can sit outside on the decking on the patio seats or sit inside and have some biscuits and something to drink. This made things very relaxed... More

This was included as part of the Rocky Mountaineer tour. I admit to being nervous, having never been in a helicopter before. However, the whole operation was very professional, safety was key. I felt secure before taking off and safe in the knowledge at the pilot was very experienced. The views from the helicopter were great; it gave a whole... More

From start to finish this operation was run by professional personnel. We were picked up from our hotel in Banff by Cameron who was very friendly & helpful and drove us to Canmore where we were given the safety talk, had our photo taken and then boarded onto the helicopter. Douglas our pilot was very informative as we flew above... More

Had a twelve minute flight and that allowed us to have a good look at the region from the air. The operation runs very smoothly with not too much waiting time. We were part of a tour group so we had to wait around half an hour. The pilots commentary was interesting and informative. They offer free coffee and cookies... More

This was the first time my husband and I were ever in a helicopter. I was very nervous but it was a smooth ride. We didn't know we could open the windows so it was very hot but that was minor. Everyone is very friendly and professional and puts you at ease. The sights from the helicopter are amazing. For... More

The whole operation is run in a professional manner and yet we felt that everyone was so friendly and helpful! Safety is very important so a briefing is done. Then it's into the heli where someone helps you to fasten your seat belts and get your earphones on. You can hear the pilot and talk to him too. But the... More

I booked the 55 min ultimate Assiniboine flight with 1 hr wilderness drop as a single rider. I was originally supposed to go with a couple of other people. Unfortunately, right before I was supposed to leave, I got a call saying the two other passengers had rescheduled so if I wanted to still do this tour I would have... More

Instead of toys and a party this year, my 10 year old son and I decided that a mom/son day that included a 20 minute helicopter ride out of the Icefields centre would be more fun and memorable. It was his first time in a helicopter and he LOVED it! He even got to sit in the front on the... More

Did this helicopter tour as part of my Rocky Mountaineer Tour and boy what a thrill it was! This was my first time on a helicopter and it was such a sensation to fly over the Rockies! Got to ride shotgun in the co-pilot's seat and it was probably the best seat in the house! Staff and pilots were all... More
