Had a great time and it was a wonderful experience. I recommend it to everyone as you get a different view of London. Helicopter felt very safe and it's a nice thing to do for a special occasion. My only disappointment was that it was not a sunny day. Staff were ready helpful and friendly

I booked the London Sights Tour. The helicopter ride was 18 minutes long and cost £220 for my husband's birthday. I think what is missing is that the helicopter company fail to realise that for most people a helicopter trip will be a once in a lifetime experience and you are looking for a lasting memory which starts the moment...

Booked online a gift experience for my partner for her birthday, very helpful when redeeming voucher and exceptional service with a smile when we checked in, all very smooth, quick safety briefing then a walk out one by one to our helicopter. A few mins delay as waiting for clearance then take off, great commentary from our pilot through headsets... More

very interesting, never been in a helicopter before but was loads of fun. The pilot was giving a tour at the same time, telling us where things were and what was what. Not around for very long goes very quick. We only did the short trip but was enough. Any longer and I would feel would be a waste of... More

We took off from home and landed in the centre of town in just over an hour. Battersea is so handy , discreet and the view over London as the sun rises is amazing. We don't often get chance to do this but really worth it.

My wife and I booked this 18 minute sight seeing flight over London from Australia some 6 months before. On arrival at the heliport and learning that we were to make this flight in an Airbus H125 which had a seven seat capacity I questioned the staff as to window seating and visibility. I was assured that although not everyone... More

Further to your review, we take exception to the claim that we do not take customer satisfaction into consideration, this is of great importance us, as you stated, if we do not have satisfied customers we would not have a business, therefore, we take it very seriously. However, there are elements that are beyond our control, for example the size... More

We won this as a prize, otherwise we would never have booked. It's a one off trip, so ideal for a special birthday or occasion. The views were amazing and all we kept saying was "wow" or "Oooh". Even if you don't like heights - which was 2 of our party - the flight is so smooth you forget about... More

I booked this as a surprise present for my son's 25th birthday. We have both been to London many times and 'done' the usual and some less well known sites and attractions. All we can say is "do it!" I think this tops everything else for the 'wow' factor and if we could literally do it again right now, we... More

Easy to book, easy to find. Pilot was great and pointed out all the major sights. Did the 12 minute flight which was enough time to see the basics. Would recommend.

A very special birthday treat I was lucky enough to be treated to a helicopter flight across London, which uses Battersea Heliport. Situated right on the river front, the heliport is a little tricky to find down some back streets, but no issue for a black cab. This is the easiest way to arrive, as there is no parking on... More
