“Great way to view Bavaria & the lakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

I treated my boyfriend to a flight while we were staying in Munich for his birthday. The views were incredible - the perfect way to appreciate the Bavarian landscape and view the lakes.
Our pilot, Dirk was very personable & friendly - a thoroughly nice guy. More importantly, a highly experienced & skilled pilot that we felt right at ease with. A really exciting & fun tourist attraction! Would definitely recommend you try it.

“Munich & Alps AMAZING VIEWS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

My husband and I booked the Munich and Alps tour with Dirk which was a fantastic experience and highlight of our vacation! Dirk was very friendly, communicative, informative and offered great pre and post customer service. He is a wonderful pilot who made our helicopter ride safe, relaxing and beautiful! Dirk also coordinated a driver to pick us up at the airport, wait during our tour and take us to our hotel so he took care of us in many ways. The heliflieger is a wonderful way to TAKE OFF your vacation in Munich!

“An experience to remember for a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We took the 90-minute tour of the Alps and Munich at the start of our April trip to Bavaria as a way to "See it before we see it", and had a phenomenal time.

First off, everything pre-trip was easy and convenient - from discussing the tour via email to scheduling a tentative date to finalizing the arrangements everything was quick and easy. We opted for the pre-arranged private taxi to and from the airport site, which I'd strongly recommend (even though it's an additional cost to pay the taxi company) for anyone without a car as it makes the trip far easier - we were picked up from our hotel in the morning and then dropped of at the Deutsches Museum afterwards. The small airport you fly from does have bathroom facilities and a snack bar (though the latter was not open as we went early in the morning), as well as a cute little playground if you're bringing a young child.

Then of course there's the trip itself. We were in Munich for several days, so left the specific timing up to Dirk so we could take best advantage of the weather. The weather was gorgeous and Dirk's congenial and professional manner very quickly puts you at ease.. even if you're not normally a fan of heights and planning to sit in the front seat! During the flight Dirk provides both insightful commentary into the area as well as answering whatever questions our random tourist interests came up with.

Flying over the spots we planned to visit on our trip gave us a unique perspective - throughout the rest of our stay we would constantly be reminded what the area we were in looked like from the air, and the beauty of the region from such a vantage point was breath-taking.

I would not hesitate to recommend Dirk and Helifliger to anyone - it is not an inexpensive experience, but it is an amazing one.

“FUN FUN FUN”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

This is a late birthday gift for both of us! I was totally excited. The pilot/guide spoke fluent English was down to earth in a professional manner of course. We did the 20 mins tour of the 5 Lakes. The view was just AMAZING beyond word. We definitely will come back for a different tour the next time we visit Munich.

“Wunderbar!! Ser gut!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

A fantastic flight to see Neuschwanstein Caste (the model for Disney's castle and the castle used in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang) through the foothills of the alps and then over and around Munich itself.

I had a great time and the pilot, Dirk was very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend that you see the castle from above and below. That's what I did. Right after the flight, I drove to the castle and took the tour. Space is limited, so book your tour at least two days before.
