“Exciting, breath-taking, exhilirating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2012

We took the Signature Rockies Tour (30 Minutes in length) and had an amazing time. Staff at the office were very friendly.

Before getting into the helicopter, there was a safety briefing. The first thing they did was weigh us. Thankfully they weighed us as a group and not individually. Even before taking off, the helicopter was bouncing pretty good. The pilot mentioned that it will get bumpy at times during the flight.

It was so amazing seeing the Rockies from 10,000 feet. The flight did get really bumpy at times and there was one valley we could not get into because of the high winds. We were able to open up the window and get lots of pictures. Towards the end of the flight, the couple sitting next to us got engaged. How cool is that. A helicopter ride is something that everyone should do once in their life.

I would HIGHLY recommend Kananaskis Heli Tours - you have to try it!

“Great experience even for a local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2011

We bought this for my husband for Father's Day, and he was disappointed when he found out we were not all going. They said, "hey, buy 3 get one free!" and we signed up. We didn't regret it one bit, a great experience for our two teenagers and my husband, all of them first-timers in a helicopter. You all get headsets so you can talk and listen to the pilot. He was professional, knowledgeable and fun. I recommend this whether you are a visitor or a local as we are (Calgarians).

What a great trip, picked up from our hotel in Banff (dead on time) transport was very clean and comfortable.
Got to Kananaskis Heli Tours base and was greeted with a big smile and coffee & cookies.
The Pilot then explained how to board the aircraft, where the safety & emergency equipment was and what would happen when we boarded.

We took a 20min trip which took us over Nakiska, where the winter olympics were held and the surrounding area.
During the flight the pilot was giving us information about the area ,the mountains and other points of interest.

The take off, flight and landig was really smooth.
All in all we had a fantastic time.
