Early this afternoon I arranged with the representative of Heliar Venice at St Marks Square to go for a helicopter ride and a Gondola for the advertised price of 100 euro. When we returned at 3pm (2 hours later) we were told we could do the helicopter ride but there were no Gondolas available. However I saw 5 Gondola operators... More

I have to echo other views that this is a little pricey but worth the expense if you want a very different experience of Venice. I'm glad I took the decision to see Venice from the air as opposed to sitting in a gondola for 40 minutes being photographed by a thousand tourists! They also provided a free boat service... More

I agree with the other reviewers. This isn't cheap, but it was amazing. Venice is so photogenic, and this is a chance to see it from a whole different angle. I was very pleased with my photos. And the staff were terrific, with the pilot pointing out various islands. I would do it again in a minute.

It cost about £50 each to take the helicopter trip. We were taken by a private speedboat over to the airport on The Lido and back, which was fun in itself. There was a short safety briefing before take-off. The journey in the air was about 6 minutes, but fantastic to see Venice and The Lido from the air. The... More

I was taken on Heliair Venice for my birthday by my fiancée, for 49 Euros each. Although brief, we encountered a truly amazing experience! The view was outstanding as the we hovered above Venice, the pilot pointing out some magical buildings below! You will be taken to the hellipad by private water taxi - a classic speedboat- which as an... More

For 49e each me and my Fiancé took a swift but breathtaking tour of Venice and the surrounding islands! The views were splendid and the boat ride there and back from St Marks in a speedboat was worth 50 euros by itself! This trip is totally good value and the guys involved are good. The pilot even gave us a... More

We booked this on the spur of the moment and it was the best part of our trip to venice! For €50 each we were transported to the airport via water taxi (along with others) and enjoyed a 7 minute flight over venice. The staff were friendly and helpful and were obviously concerned with safety. The helicopter pilot was friendly... More
