It was exhilarating and beautiful! The helicopter was new and clean and our pilot was great! He took us from the navy base out over the mansions and ocean drive and the beaches. We would definitely do it again!

We booked an inexpensive short tour of Aquidneck Island through Groupon and had a blast. The trip, which took about 13 minutes, covered from mid-island west across the Navy base, then south to the city of Newport and the Pell Bridge, waterfront mansions, beaches and back up the central valley to the airport. The helicopter holds up to three passengers.... More

Neat experience. A little expensive if you choose the longer rides. Check weather because if foggy/stormy, ride will be canceled or route changed.

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
