I had the pleasure of being a passenger on this helicopter and I cannot say enough good things about this ride. The view was fantastic and the people who are in charge are absolutely excellent! Don't be turned off by the price because the experience is worth twice that.

Learning to fly a helicopter was on my dad's bucket list, and the experience at Bird's Eye was second to none. Friendly staff, great instructor and amazing helicopter lesson above Newport. Unforgettable father's day and 60th birthday gift for my dad. Looking forward to a heli tour when I'm back in Newport. PS get the in-flight DVD. Only $25 extra... More

We treated our 9 year old granddaughter to a helicopter tour of the mansions of Newport. It was an absolutely thrilling experience. The small airport in Middletown was a bustling friendly place with helicopter rides,sky diving and para sailing as well as local flights. We were given a ride above the Newport bridge,Naval Academy light house and the mansions along... More

I am afraid of heights. When my friend invited me to go up with Bird's Eye, I said yes of course but I was so nervous. That fear left as soon as we lifted off. It was like riding in car. We flew over the mansions and then headed out to Portsmouth. We flew right over my house! It was... More

The views are amazing, the entire staff are welcoming and professional, the experience was once in a lifetime. We did the mansion tour which is about 15 minutes long and was perfect to see the stunning coast line, the beautiful mansions, the stretching views to Martha's Vinyard and all the rest. I would recommend this trip hands down. I have... More

I took my two boys--13 and 9--for a mansion tour. It was their first time in a helicopter. I thought it would be fun for them. They LOVED it! Both wanted to go for the longer tour. Maybe next time. What beautiful views--seeing the mansions from a different perspective--and such an exciting tour--flying over the bridge! Highly recommend.

We had a groupon deal for the mansion tour for 3 people, which was really good value. The helicopters only fit in 3 passengers making it very personal, rather than catering for big groups. The company is very professional and friendly. It was very easy to book, with lots of availability. They did call to rearrange our initial booking, but... More

What a ride. The best way to see New Port. Jeff was fantastic. Showed us some great sites from the air. You get a different view from the air than the land. But a must do if your in New Port.
