“Great start to the trip, we got to see the whole island from a great view!”
Reviewed June 16, 2011

The helicopter tour was a great idea. We went on it the first day we were there, so we got to see the entire island and got an idea of places we wanted to visit. Our tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot about the island, as well as got some good restaurant tips :)

“Great”
Reviewed November 20, 2010

Great tour! Our pilot Richard was wonderful, he gave us the tour of the island and showed us all the beauty that is Aruba. Would recommend it to all who visit the island.

“Awesome experience and great way to see the island!!”
Reviewed October 31, 2010

Yes the ride is expensive (approx $170/15 mins) but my husband and I felt the experience was well worth it. We did the beach tour of the island (there is a longer tour that takes you to see other parts of the island which costs more too). We did this trip towards the end of our stay, which we felt was beneficial because we had explored the island a lot already, and seeing it from an aerial view, we were able to point out all the places we'd been which was fun. I had never been on a helicopter before, but I felt totally at ease and comfortable. The pilot was great, very friendly and pointed out landmarks for us to see.

“Wow! Best part of our trip”
Reviewed July 14, 2010

This was the favorite part of our trip. It was worth every penny. We did the entire island tour. I sometimes am nervous flying in airplanes, but this was so smooth and the pilot so skilled I had no problems. If I was to do this again I would have done it earlier in the week as you get an awesome overview of the island. The pilot was an excellent guide as he pointed out landmarks and features. He even would turn one way or the other so that we got better views. We were in Aruba in April 2010.

“A MUST Do Excursion”
Reviewed March 29, 2010

My husband and I always wanted to take the helicopter tour, but had a tough time justifying the expense. This year we decide to bite the bullet and in lieu of exchanging gifts for our wedding anniversary, do the helicopter tour instead. Thursday morning was our helicopter tour of the island.

We decided to reserve the first tour of the day at 10 a.m. in order to have the rest of the day at the beach.

We felt it was well worth the extra money for the island tour versus the beach tour. The island tour begins at the helipad at the marina in Oranjestad. We headed north and saw Druif, Eagle, Palm Beach, Malmok, Arashi and beyond. We out over the wreck of the Antilla for a very unique view. From there it was on around the lighthouse and Tierra del Sol Country Club with all of it's palatial homes, flying along the northeast coast all the way up to the Aruba Drag Raceway Park.

Our tour than took us back towards the west coast with a view of the refinery, heading back northward over the barrier islands towards to Oranjestad over Savaneta and past the airport, finally land back in Oranjestad. The color of the water during this portion of the flight was just as breathtaking as it is over Palm Beach.

In 17 visits to Aruba, this ranks in the top 3 excursions we have taken.
