A really fun a activity and a great way to see the city. Our group had Sydney locals and also overseas visitors. The service was professional and friendly, Eemon provided interesting insights about the local area. I would recommend this as a great 'experience' present.

“Good fun-but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We took a coastal tour ( February) and maybe I did not read the details properly but I thought we were flying up to the bridge etc (Views of Sydney Harbour Bridge from the Heads on a hazy morning not so good) Pay the big money and do the 30 minute full tour of the Harbour and the beaches. Flying back the same way was a touch boring when you are on the other side of the chopper. Very professional though.

Hi Steve

Thanks for posting your review. The Coastal Rush flight focuses on the Eastern suburbs beaches and extends as far north as South Head where from 1000 ft you get a spectacular view of Sydney harbour, and the Opera House and Harbour Bridge in the distance. Unfortunately we do get some hazy days in Sydney occasionally which can impact the view somewhat.

The Coastal Rush is one of our "thrill" rides where the doors are removed from the helicopter for a more exhilarating experience. The attraction of this particular flight is the contour flying of the Eastern suburbs beaches, including Bondi, which is why we backtrack along the same route.

We are glad you enjoyed a professional experience with our company and look forward to seeing you again

Michael

This has got to be the best way to see Sydney! Went up on a heli with no door, got to see the amazing coastline and the beautiful city and Northern beaches, simply stunning! it's bloody freezing up there, so make sure you bring a decent jacket! The team were great, pilot Michael was excellent. got to take some great photos too, highly recommend it!! Must do for everyone living in Sydney i reckon!

“Perfect day, Perfect city for a scenic helicopter flight.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

I've lived in Sydney for almost 4 years and never even thought of going up in a helicopter to see Sydney's highlights.

I'm so glad I chose Sydney Helitours for this experience. Everyone there were very professional and friendly. Eemon the Pilot was great and a wealth of knowledge about Sydney's landmarks. I would recommend Sydney Helitours to anyone

Thank you Sydney Helitours and thank you Eemon for the fantastic flight.
