    The Mountain Valley is our first dedicated mountain tour. Very popular with groups looking to see more of the area, this flight offers great views of Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Bluff Mountain. As you take off on your flight out to Bluff Mountain and over the Tennessee Valley you are greeted with stunning views of the Smoky Mountain National Park in the distance. The highlight of this trip is getting up close and personal with Bluff Mountain and Sugar Loaf Mountain, both of which were formed by a glacier at the end of the last ice age. The total time and distance for the Mountain Valley Tour are 12 minutes and 24 miles respectively.

What an amazing experience! If you think the mountains are beautiful when you're driving thru or up them (which they are), you have GOT to experience them from a helicopter. Absolutely breathtaking!

Everyone with FlyScenic was so nice, friendly, patient and helpful. Our pilot, Rico, was the absolute best! He was informative in every level...about the entire area and about the way the helicopter would be reacting to the wind. He helped this somewhat hesitant and nervous woman to feel calm and comfortable and completely able to enjoy the entire ride. Our selected tour was an hour long and the entire time was amazing. Thanks so much Rico!!

My son (6) and I had the best time. From the moment pulling up and being guided and loaded onto the helicopter by Jay, to the flight and landing by pilot Thomas, to the entire crew that worked our night flight, everyone made it special for my son (and myself as well). I would highly recommend this for children and adults and strongly suggest everyone try this at least once!

The entire process from booking to taking off was excellent. Shortly after arriving the boarding attendant Taylor went over the FAA rules with us before boarding the helicopter and once we walked up to the helicopter they took (optional) pictures of us outside with the helicopter and inside of the helicopter with our headsets on. The pilot Rico was an absolutely excellent tour guide and really made us feel welcome as well as making sure we had a great time. I absolutely would recommend this as it was one of the main highlights of my vacation!

I booked the Mountain Valley Tour but we spent more time hovering around the main roadway than we did over the mountains, so that was disappointing. Helicopter rides are always fun but $200 for 15 min isn't. I've been on a 10 minute ride for about $60 before. We also felt obligated to tip the pilot at the end. Definitely a touristy stop. But if you have the money it's still a cool experience.

Okay so I had planned a romantic sunset tour to propose to my girlfriend and my son would be riding with us, however due to weather, it was cancelled. Jamison (hopefully I spelled that right) took care of me, he understood how important it was for me and he made the situation better. While I ended proposing elsewhere, it will still fun to take the ride as a family.

Had a great tour. The pilot Nick was very friendly and made our family of 4 very comfortable. He told us about the local sights we were flying over and gave us suggestions of other fun activities we could do in the area. We will definitely request him when we return to the area again!

This was Amazing! Isaac our boarding attendant was super helpful and took the time to show us everything, the pilot, Phil was awesome! A great place to do something fun. The guys at the desk were super friendly. Everyone there made us feel comfortable and at ease with doing something we had never done before. I recommend everyone to at least try this once. It was a great experience! And we will definitely be taking a longer ride next time!

First experience in a helicopter and it was great! Such a smooth ride and the views from above you can see everything. Saw lots of roads to go find and a lake to find by road. Saw the Parkway we rode earlier. The French Broad River and Douglas Lake go a long way. Rico our pilot did a great job. Very nice ride. Pat was great help with loading and unloading. Got ticket for discount on our next ride and plan to go again when leaves are back on trees. One less item on the bucket list.

If anyone is nervous about trying this, I would say Have No Fear. It’s safe, entertaining & even educational! As ‘first-time flyers’ we didn’t know what to expect, but it’s really just a different kind of fun! The entire staff was friendly & helpful, but Phil went above and beyond! Since he’s the pilot, I guess he’s supposed to!! (Trust me, he would like that Dad joke😏) These guys are all great at what they do, so fly with them. They won’t let you down! (🤓oops, I did it again Phil.)
